Group Therapy: I Won't Let My Weight Hold Me Back Anymore

Hi, I'm at a point where I just can't stand my weight. It's holding me back so much. It hurts my back. I hate clothes shopping because they don't make clothes for short fat women, unless it's a moo moo. I don't even want to attempt dating because I'm really self conscious about how I look, with and without clothes on. I've had boyfriends, but I've also had mean guys tell him how fat I am and that makes me not date worthy. It's very discouraging.

I have a huge tendency to overeat, eat junk food with a lot of fat and/or sugar, and I self sooth with food (I have a history of depression). I don't want to do this to myself anymore. I've tried stupid fad diets in the past and ofcourse they don't work. I want to Weight Watchers which seemed to help some. I lost 25 pounds last year but gained back 15 after some stressful life changes.

Does anyone have suggestions for how to get control of my eating habits? I'm stuck in a vicious cycle here and really want to get out of it.
