First, you should clean out your cabinets and refridgerator and put healthy food back in it's place. Next, you should exercise more when you are "off balance" either way. It makes you feel good as it releases a chemical in the blood that makes you feel great even when you are either "up" or "down". This always helps me.

I have been actively trying to lose weight for a little over a month now. At first, I was doing really well...but my mood was stable then. In the past week my mood has swung wildly between manic (hypomanic really) and very depressed. I've found that when my mood changes my motivation to eat healthily and exercise just goes out the window. When I'm depressed I go for big comfort foods (icecreams and heavy carby type foods) and alcohol and when I'm up I just eat all the time because I'm so hungry! I don't care about any of it. Problem is, I know I should care so when I do this I hate myself even more for the failure. What do you guys do to combat this? Should I just accept that it will be 'two steps forward, one step back' when it comes to taming my mood-fuelled eating habits?
