I have had an on going battle with my weight

Patient

Q: I have had an on going battle with my weight. I am 5'7", 19 years old, and 165 pounds. I have intense cravings and I eat until it hurts. I can't help it. Every once-in-awhile, I attempt to eat healthy and exercise but I just feel that I don't have the motivation needed to continue. I don't have the time or energy to exercise and eating healthy is very hard with the cravings and lake of money. I do work full time as a care giver so I am on my feet most of the day but that doesn't seem to be enough exercise. My main question is, what should I do about my excessive eating?
