It's been almost 2 years since I started this journey and after losing 40 lbs. with a lot of hard work I fell off the wagon big time! 16 months later I've gained 50 lbs back and my depression has been so bad meds. don't even work anymore! So I decided no one else could do anything about it and I best be doing some major soul searching and quit feeling sorry for myself. I have to get healthy again. I am so tired of changing meds for this depression and nothing working so I decided the only way to go is eating right, exercising, and get my heart right with God again. It's been 4 days now and instead of going on another depression med I thought I'd start walking at least 30 minutes a day, get rid of the sugar , eat less and pray like mad! It's working!!!! I am starting to feel better and my anxiety is way down! Thank you Lord for giving me strength. I met a new neighbor who just lost 85 ilbs. in 8 months and got totally pumped. Thanks Marta for giving me the motivation to get going again! So here I go again and this time I will take one day at a time and try not to get overwhelmed with the "BIG" picture. I am so glad to be back and hope to meet some friends to help each other stay motivated.
