I definitely needed help from someone else. I thought I could handle everything on my own but after a while I realized it was only a thought, and I was getting nowhere by myself. My doctor put me on prozac which helped the depression and anxiety alot, but when I was pregnant I decided to stop taking it and I have been alright since then.. I think seeing how I felt while I was on the meds helps me to be okay now? I don't know if that makes sense but that seems to be the way it went.. I was supposed to go talk to someone but it wasn't something I was able to do. I wish I had and I still probably will once I have the means to get there. 2678 days ago

I completely agree Shanmarieh, you are beautiful and you have to tell yourself that each and everyday, you are beautiful and worth it! I also found for me not to put my weight up but putting up the bar for lost pounds and logging all foods, right down to the coffee makes you feel accountable and you visually see all you eat-helps to give you guidance. You are in the right place, I love sparkpeople and I tell all who will listen about it. 2680 days ago
