Everyone always says your twenties is that period in your life where you are "lost". You don't know what you want to do, you're finishing up college, you're at a job that's headed no where and you don't know who you are. I feel like I am the textbook example of what a 20 something year old is and it sure does scare me. Considering I will be 25 in the next month I really don't want to go through the rest of my 20's feeling like this. Something needs to change.
I used to be on SparkPeople awhile ago and of course life happens, that was about two years ago. Now I'm trying to figure out what the heck is going on in my life and how to change it so I can live a successful and happy life. Funny thing is I'm not even sure how to define what success and happiness is. I do know that weight always happens to fall into that category that needs to change and thus the reason why I have come back to SparkPeople. I never left because it wasn't useful for me, life just seemed to happen. I graduated from College, got my first "grown-up" job and responsibilities took over.
Now I am back on SparkPeople and on what I feel like is going to be a long journey of self discovery and change. I have recently seeked professional help for an anxiety and anger disorder (gosh, it's tough to revel such personal downfalls but I know I need to change). I am in the beginning stages of getting that under control and simply in the thought process of making those healthier lifestyle choices such as exercise. I just can't seem to quit with the excuses and the "i'll do it tomorrow".
Any advice for getting back on that wagon and getting my act together would certainly be much appreciated.
Thanks everyone for always being so supportive and full of thoughtful advice and wisdom. You Sparkers are always amazing!
