Hello and welcome to the team jen you can do this just take it slow and keep adding. One day at a time is always the best way to go. baby steps will allow you to get done what needs to be done. :) Working out may help with depression. I actually use my workouts to destress and take my mind off things I also know a few others who do this we are here to help you say on track and pull you back up if you fall down.
The road to success is not straight. There is a curve called Failure, a loop called Confusion, speed bumps called Friends, red lights called Enemies, caution lights called Family. You will have flats called Jobs. But, if you have a spare called Determination, an engine called Perseverance, insurance called Faith, a driver called Jesus, you will make it to a place called Success.

Hi Jen!! I am here for any support or help that you need! Totally understand what you mean when you say that all you do is think about how fat you are. I feel the same way. I really cant stop thinking about it all the time. BUT I found great support and feel like my negative self image is going away a little at a time. I have a lot to lose but I know that if I stick to this I can do it!! And finally feel healthy and happy about myself!! You can do this! You really CAN!! I am here to help in any way I can to motivate you and to keep you going!

Well.....I guess I will start with Hello, my name is Jen and I am fat!!!! I WANT so badly to lose this weight but at this point I have realized, I can't do it alone. I am 39 & the mother of 2 grown daughters. I started gaining weight about 10 years ago and was diagnosed with ADD and severe depression, I do NOTHING but think about how fat I am but yet I either can't get the motivation or don't understand what it is I should be doing to regain my self esteem and my health. I have also been divorced and alone for the last 12 years, I blame my weight a lot for that. I can't wait to meet some of you and hopefully learn a few things also. I am also here for anyone who needs me, funny how my life seems a mess but I am always ready to help others and lift them up, so use me!! :)
