I am in my 40's and am ready to live a healthier lifestyle. My weight has been a yoyo for several years, and I am tired of it. I have been over 200 lbs., and I had lost down to 135 lbs. about 6 years ago, and now am slowly creeping back up. I have a problem letting my emotions control my weight, due to bouts of depression. I know exercise can curve depression, so I am vowing to exercise and eat healthy from now on and try not to let situations in life get me down that far any more.

I am facing a drastic challenge right now. I can feel myself falling into depression again. My brother was diagnosed with lung cancer in November of 2012 and has been placed into Hospice care this past week. I have always had issues with depression, and knowing my brother is going to die soon is a major struggle to hold onto myself and my goals. I start having feelings of "Why should I bother? How can my weight-loss even matter at a time like this?" I know in my head I must continue to take care of myself, but my sorrow sometimes wants to take over and just give up. If any of you pray, please pray my family gets through this, and I don't give up on my health because of bad circumstances.
