I overeat, hate my body and it’s making me depressed.

Question : I’m not sure if this counts as a real “problem”, but it’s getting me down. Basically I tend to overeat at random times and then I hate myself and feel like I can't stop. I don’t even stop eating when I’m full.I eat till I feel uncomfortable and bloated. But I don’t vomit. The problem is that over the last year I have gained 8 kgs and can’t stand my body. I want to lose weight but I’m not able to and then I overeat. I’m getting depressed and don’t want to go to school because I hate my body, but I also don’t want to stay at home because I might raid the fridge at any time.Please help!& Teentalker , 15-year-old
