WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST PROBLEM IN WEIGHT LOSS: Overeating, eating with my emotions. Eating for convenience (fast foods) because of my busy schedule, sticking to sweets and sugary foods and not being able to find alternatives

ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT YOU? I have struggled with depression since I was about 12 or 13, and this goes along with anxiety. I have learned to manage it and better handle situations in the past few years because of counseling, but the eating in combination has not been completely figured out.
