You've taken a good first step. While many people poo-poo the idea of losing weight using an internet site, the numbers of members that have successfully achieved this goal on this site alone is staggering. Don't worry, it will become second-nature to you in no time.
Second step is to get your mind into it. Yes, that's a challenge, and I know from experience dealing with not just weight loss but depression, too, that it's so much easier said than done.
You will need the services of a counsellor for the depression aspect of your inquiry, but this site will help you, too. Success is a wonderful motivator and once you lose those first few pounds, you will feel fantastic about yourself. When you finally get down a whole size and realize that you can "re-introduce" some of your wardrobe stash (you know, those clothes you absolutely loved a few years ago but haven't worn because they don't look so good, but you were heartbroken at the thought of discarding such a beautiful item? Yeah...that stash). The compliments and looks of surprised admiration at how you're improving your outward appearance will be a huge boost to your self-esteem and hence your seretonin levels.
It's all related. All of it. BLOGGING or JOURNALLING helps, but it goes only so far. DOING something works, too, but it only goes so far. SUPPORT also helps a great deal, but it only goes so far. COUNSELLING is a wonderful assist, but again, only goes so far. TOGETHER, though, they are a formidable team.
You've come to the right place, m'dear. Don't worry, it all gets easier and you will love yourself for taking this first step.
