emoticon DANIEGO and emoticon to SparkPeople and the team...Nice to have you with us on the journey to a healthier lifestyle.

You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face.

Mistakes are the portals of discovery.

Don't be afraid to give your best at what seemingly are small jobs. Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger. If you do the little jobs well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves.

It is never too late to be what you might have been.

Hi DANIEGO emoticon and emoticon to the Sparkpeople and the Dealing with Depression Team!! Starting off on a new journey can be very scary and daunting, but it doesn't have to be. Most of us suffer from depression and some with other diagnosis as well. Emotional eating is a problem for a lot of us. Thankfully you have come to a place that will help you deal with the problem as you work towards your goals and your healthier lifestyle. All of the articles, information and tools are the greatest things about this site. You cannot help but become better educated about living with healthier goals. Take your time getting to know the site and all there is here for you. When it comes to emotional eating I can think of several articles which come to mind that may help you with ideas. A few of my favorites are:

These three links will take you to three of my favorite articles regarding emotional eating. There are specialty Sparkteams and challenges that are set up specifically for emotional eating. If you go to the Emotional Eating Healthy Living Community, you will find connections to these teams. The link for that is:

I think that you will find great support and encouragement here on site and on this team. Please post often. We love to learn about your progress and offer you whatever guidance we can when you need it. Help is only a post away. Please ask any questions that you have too. With over a million members and an international membership there is a lot of expertise to be had here and available to you just about 24/7.

Hello! I suffer from Major depressive disorder. I have had a lot of things happen in my life, but food has never let me down. I am an emotional eater and am finding it difficult to stop using it as a crutch. I am looking forward to support and encouragement. Excited to get to know some people.
