As you've noticed, there's often quite a large gap between what one KNOWS, cognitively and factually, and what one DOES, behaviourally.
A psych using CBT can help[ you get this under control, and help also to make the attractive excuses less effective. And meantime, if you don't have bars of chocolate and packets of biscuits in the house, you couldn't scoff them down. And I don't think the family necessarily suffers greatly from a sweet-free diet. Whereas packets of salad greens, etc., could help fill the gaps when you're hungry. And don't keep sugar, which you don't need at all - normal ( non sugared or flavoured ) breakfast cereals and oatmeal porridge can be satisfying without sugar.
You've admirably gained control of the low moods, and should be fully capable of controlling the binghe-eating while enhancing your diet and taking on that exercise you say appeals to you. Within months you could be enjoying the new svelte you !
