There’s a misconception that really needs to be squashed! This type of negative thinking is all around us, even within the ranks of our family members.

Those with excess weight often suffer from depression. That’s no secret. What we’re unsure about, though, is which comes first. Does being seriously overweight directly lead to depression in some people? Or, does depression cause excess weight gain?
