Hi, I'm really impressed and inspired by you that you're honest about being depressed and upset, but here you are! You're not a quitter and I really believe you're going to do it this time!
I am starting up my diet again too and totally understand your frustration. I also think the depression and anger are actually very real, physical effects of going through withdrawals from food addiction since food releases those 'feel good' endorphins. It helps me to realize that for me food is a drug and that if I want to finally win there is simply going to be a withdrawal period -for a while. But we need to take it one hour at a time. Every time an hour passes and you don't give up congratulate yourself! Tell your family this is serious and that if they care about you they'll understand that the entire house must respect and encourage your process in breaking this addiction. If they need to eat poorly they'll have to schedule that eating away from home. Or you can leave the home and go for a walk until they're done. I have found that I really enjoy this time to myself, with either music or my thoughts to relax me while I'm walking. I also definitely agree with eating more protein and even good fats with every meal and allow your weight loss to be a little slower than what you may have hoped in order to stick to it! Also, many great diets allow for you to save up calories for 'cheats' so that you dont' have to stress about company lunches, birthdays, etc.

Welcome to Spark. You have taken an important step on your journey by joining!
I deal with hypothyroidism also. I've found that increasing my lean protein has made a big difference in helping me "feel full" and handling cravings. I eat protein with every meal and with every snack.
I've been a member a little over 3 years. I made fantastic progress and lost 100 pounds in the first year BUT I became careless about nutrition and exercise and have gained a lot of the pounds back! I became disgusted with myself and closed my Spark account, but soon realized I NEEDED to be here. I'm back using the nutrition and exercise trackers now - they are so important. The sense of community and the friendships I have made here keep me going!
Explore the site, make your Sparkpage if you haven’t, join teams, and make friends. You will find this site an amazing place full of encouragement, inspiration, advice, and support.
Please let me know if there is anything I can help you with.
