Welcome to the forum! I hope that you can find the support, encouragement and inspiration here that can help you in your journey.
Regardless of your current weight or situation, most/all of us in this group are facing (or understand) your feelings of sugar "addiction..." AKA issues with uncontrolled eating with high sugar.
Many others may respond with tangible "advice" on how to address your nutrition (e.g. reduce or eliminate processed carbs and sugars), but I think a huge part of this is attitude. You're on the right track with realizing that you deserve to be healthier, and that your happiness should be a priority. It's definitely important to take care of yourself for your family too, but as a caregiver, I think its easier to put oneself last. But, by putting yourself and your health first, you'll be able to cope and deal with all of the other struggles/challenges in your life so much more effectively.
I've seen first hand that when I am eating well and taking care of myself, life is so much easier to manage. Stresses will still come, but I am just so much more capable when I am at my best. Its been so motivating to see this in my own life... this is what is helping keep me on track.
Again, welcome... dig in to SP and I know that you can find what you need!
