 sorry I don't have a picture up I'm having problems posting it by my phone for some reason

I'm in this form because I am finding myself dangerously overweight ... I'm developing some sort of anxiety for ever going out of the house ...everytime I walk and  people even glance in my direction.. I think they're staring at me because of my weight.

 I sabotage any relationship I have my life and it's starting to interfere with the relationship between me and my children... I know it comes from a life long depression and my eating disorders ...I signed up for an eating disorders group and then I never attended..  for some reason I'm horribly embarrassed by this appearance. ..

 I don't own a scale but I can feel and see the massive weight I put on ...every time I have a child (3xs) in my life

I first lose weight and I feel wonderful and once I feel wonderful I put on the pounds. about 50-75 pounds each pregnancy each 7 years apart so the pregnancy is not an excuse at all. 

if I can keep myself very busy which doesn't happen because I'm so depressed I avoid everything even my work but if I can keep myself very busy I don't think about food and I don't feel hungry...but being that I really really don't have a life I feel hungry all the time and then I eat myself into I'm tired and I want to do is sleep I'm going to wake up angry if I don't eat something sweet and I am so sick of myself...

when I feel normal and not in my depression I start dropping 30 pounds with no problem but just walking around exercising and I still eat the way I normally eat but I try to cut down I don't drink soda juice or anything I don't really like milk so I always just drink water but even in my mentally healthy times...I can never lose more than that 30 pounds no matter how much I walk on the treadmill or under the blazing sun of Florida... I try to educate myself as much as possible and no matter how much I learn I feel like I don't know what to do the only thing that really works is if I don't eat it all and then I'm horribly cranky.

I've been looking into surgeries for about 4 years now and I'm terribly afraid to do one because I'm afraid that if I don't address my mental health and depression. i will end up killing myself or going right back to stretching out my stomach and being a beast again has anyone been to the situation do you have any advice

Your instincts are pretty good - don't have surgery until you start dealing with some underlying issues. I learned the hard way and had surgery before j was ready and had a 90lb regain kick my ass. My biggest problem was sweets. I couldn't stop eating them no matter how much I wanted to stop. I finally found OA and it helps me keep my addiction under control. I've been sugar and binge free for 8months. And my depression was pretty much lifted by working a 12 step program like OA.

Do you still do OA? I have thought about giving it a try again, but I didn't find it that helpful for very long. I guess I would have to give it a decent amount of time though. I would love to talk more with you about this.
