I have totally fell off the wagon and not been diligent about tracking what I eat so in effect I have gained a lot of weight back. I am so upset with myself. I have been depressed for months which has affected my self esteem and confidence. This weight gain doesnt help. Thing is with the stress for some reason I am more hungry than normal and I am hypoglycemic to add to it. I'm so discouraged!!

Get back on the horse! You can do it. Just remember how much better you will feel if you take care of yourself and eat right!

i put on over 10 pounds myself. i am back to holding myself accountable. it is not easy. if if were, this site would probably not exist.
one thing i read that has really helped me when i slip up was by Jillian Michaels....
"if you were driving down the road and you got a flat tire, what would you do? you would fix the tire and get back on the road right? you wouldnt get a knife out and slash the other 3 tires because you were so mad and frustrated because that would just set you back! that would be crazy!"
i will never throw my hands up in defeat. i will make everyday a new day full of happiness, hope, courage and all the will power i can muster up!

Don't beat yourself up! Groan and complain for a minute if that helps, but get back on that horse.... and giddy-up!
Emotions have a tendency to mess up eating habits but the best way to deal with depression is to go out and walk if you possibly can...it will get your mood elevated. Walk everyday until you can tell your mood has lifted... then fight back!!!!
Fat is our enemy... let's kill it!!
My first goal: 198 lbs
2nd goal: 179 lbs
3rd goal: 162 lbs
4th goal: 146 lbs

Depression is a very nasty mood disorder, eating brings that tempary relief that you seek when you are feeling low. However although you can never snap out of it, like some people believe... there are ways to help elevate your mood... like the comment before find something that you like to do and push yourself mentally and physically to do it. I personally find walking a great way to relieve stress and elevate my mood when those blues hit. If you are lucky enough to have a park around you go there and let nature lift your spirits.
good luck and all the best

We've all had our ups and downs. You're going to do something about it! I found just giving up a few things that had no value helped---chips( but I had some Yesterday-first time in over a year)---soda (even diet)---wine -beer-etc.Ate lots of soups,green tea and my favorite dill pickles. Find something you like that's low in cals. Stay strong we're with you.

Hi kmf. It a vicious circle isn't it. Eat, gain weight, get depressed, eat. AAAh. I have discovered as I have got older that certain types of carbs can really bring me down after I eat them, quick high and then very long low. When I stay away from them I feel very good. However it is very hard to give up, likely permanently, those things that taste so good. I have found though that the quick high is not worth the feeling later so I am now trying to find great tasting alternative. What I am saying is that you find what works for you and be prepared to make it a for life change. You will feel so much better and so proud of yourself. You just have to try every day. Once yesterday is behind you, only you can let it affect you in a negative way. So be good to yourself ok and try. Take care. Lin
