Default Newbie here. Diagnosis: binge/emo/(somtimes)night

Hi guys. Just introducing myself here. 21 year old lady from FL trying to lose weight, but I'm mentally ill and my mental illness makes me find food as an escape from the sadness and reality of my illness. So I love food. It actually helps me feel better. The night eating is like anxiety I have or something. also my medication makes me sleepy and when I'm sleepy my appetite goes up....Not good. Oh well. Thats when I have to toughen it out...But I had my good days. I hope I have many more.......

Just being a part of the forum and "letting it all out" is a big step forward.
A few of us here suffer from depression/etc, and we understand the difficulty in losing weight when you're not feeling good.
We really need to rethink using food as a comfort and reward, though. We know that when we eat well we feel better. We just have to find the strength to start making healthier choices.
