Day 1 of Spark People
Wednesday, February 20, 2013
I was a member here a few years ago; I enjoyed it but ended up losing track. After losing my job 5 years ago, I went into a depression I never thought I would climb out of. My self esteem and confidence vanished, my anxiety and stress level also went through the roof, along with my blood pressure, and I was forced to take medication. My activity level also plummeted and I started to gain weight; after weighing 105 my whole adult life this was a huge change for me.
I have since managed my depression after a long battle and the medication has helped my anxiety and blood pressure - but I am ready for yet another change. I want my energy back along with a more toned body - I not only want to look good, I need to FEEL good!
I am hoping I will find the inspiration and motivation to reach my goals on Spark....and also I want to meet new friends who are on their own journey so we can inspire each other!
