Hi ladies! I just wanted to drop a note of encouragement, because I have just recently started to head toward the other side of all of this depression, anxiety, stress, and disappointment in everything I have done. One of the biggest differences for me was reducing the amount of gluten in my diet. It seems that my body is somewhat intolerante to gluten (not allergic), and it was actually causing me to crave more! After eliminating a lot of that, I had more energy, I didn't have to DRAG myself out of bed, and my anxiety levels are a bit lower. I also have been able to think more clearly. I'm not saying that I'm not tired, because I absolutely am. I have just noticed that it's more tolerable and manageable than it was before, which has helped me feel more like exercising. I have not lost any weight yet, and I'm still figuring out a lot of what's going on, but I can say from experience that I NEVER imagined that I would really ever start to feel better again.
You are worth the time to figure out what will make you feel better, and I realized quickly that, until I was giving myself credit for what I was trying to do and appreciating myself for that, I was not feeling any better. There isn't a quick fix, but I've really been working on changing my own perspective so I can be more patient and forgiving with MYSELF!
Hang in there!!!!!!
