Creating healthy habits and achieving weight loss are difficult for anyone, even someone who feels psychologically healthy. When low mood, difficulty controlling moods, stress, and/or depression set it, this becomes even harder. Identifying goals and setting smaller steps to get there can actually be the key to combating depression, along with being healthier overall.
