I'm 49 going on 50. I have depression in conjunction w perimenopause and my eating is out of control. I'm at my heaviest weight in years. My depression meds have greatly improved the quality of my life as I'm stable for the most part working a full time job. I am lacking motivation to eat better and just feel like I've lost my mojo. Can anyone else relate?

      Mine is because all of the depression and stress I go through. Was homeless since May. And hopefully tomorrow things will change around. But every time I think it might it doesn't. I need prayers that it does this time.

        @Mandy72 my son's stress makes him lose weight too. He says it's a blessing and a curse at the same time.

      I’m 47 . I can . Living in the south doesn’t help lol. Premenopausal and taking meds that the side effects is weight gain. Depression and Anxiety is through the roof. Mood swings . Zero motivation. I’m single . Fibromyalgia and glossopharyngeal neuralgia and they think something else autoimmune too. I’ve lost my care

      Turning 40 next week, already perimenopausal, 250lbs, and really finding it hard to even take a shower.

        @bbgdaryl 🫂 sorry to hear you are already having to deal with it. I hear you about showers. I dread taking them. Between the hot flashes, the warm water and the house heater, I get way over heated. By the time I dry off, I'm sweating already. UGH. Not to mention all the body aches and pain to go along with it.

        @bbgdaryl sorry to hear that. Are you on meds and do you see a therapist?

      Yep, I can totally relate to your situation.I also ate out of control also with annoying hot flashes but I hope your situation with depression and going through menopause will be better once your menopause is over.🙏

      ✋ I can!! I'm 51 and the heaviest I have ever been. I know that I comfort eat and have problems staying away from snacking at night. Between the mood swings with peri-menopause, depression and covid lockdown, the last 5 years have been a roller-coaster with my eating habits. I recently started to change my diet, which has helped. But, I still struggle with late night snacking on the wrong things.

        @dolphinblues same. I feel like I never truly feel full. It's frustrating

          @Catlover49 it is very frustrating. Sometimes, once I eat in the morning, all I want to do the rest of the day is eat. But, if I don't eat breakfast, and wait til lunchtime, then I don't feel like that. It's weird.
