I've never been diagnosed by a professional, but yes, I have definitely been depressed because of my weight. Before joining SP, I yoyo-ed for years - not by 5 or 10 pounds, but by 40-50 each time. When my weight was going up, I would feel like I was spiraling down a deep well, nothing to hold onto, out of control. But then I would hit bottom, find some footing, lose some weight and start feeling better again.
It's funny how this site has managed to change my whole outlook. I truly give the credit to SP and all the wonderful people here. I am happier than I have been in years. Not just because I have lost over 33 lbs, but because I am eating better and feel better in general. Now, instead of "hoping" that I can complete my journey and "hoping" that I can keep it off this time, I am confident about it. I can't imagine going back to that old me. I really didn't like her much!
Decide. Commit. Succeed.
