Just when I start losing a few pounds my depression once again rares its ugly head and my sself worth plumets. The only time I feel good is when I eat. I'm not hugely over weigh (weigh 15st) and I'm 5"9 so I can pull it off (ish). I just feel so horrible in this cycle :cry2:

Hi, you are not alone, what you have written is exactly how I feel. It’s a horribly viscous cycle- cause you feel even worse after the over eating as well. I don’t really have any words of wisdom or anything that I can even tell you to do. But you are not alone and if you want to talk about it please do, sometimes it helps.

Hi Fairy Lu,
Thanks for your note. It’s just so destructive and creates such a horrible spiral. Today I could barely get out of bed but I had to go to work so didn’t have an option. I hate feeling helpless and know it’s in my mind and I have control it all sounds so easy and yet in the throw of it is so difficult.
