Back... Again...

Tuesday, May 15, 2012

Hey everyone,
I've had a very busy and interesting year. I've started seeing a therapist for depression, anxiety, and body image issues. After 4 months of therapy and little progress, I've just started medication. I have also started seeing a nutritionist who is helping me eat healthy the right way (mostly getting me to eat breakfast and up my protein intake in general) and I hope to be able to exercise soon, as I have avoided it this year for fear of people seeing/judging me during or after exercising. I hope with the medication I can obtain a normal sleep schedule since I have a terrible tendency to take an hour to fall asleep and then oversleep by many hours in the morning. I also hope I will cut down on emotional eating.

So I'm tackling this from a mental standpoint. I'm far from beating this, but it's a step in the right direction. I do still have a weight loss goal. I still need to change my way of thinking to accepting my current body and becoming fit because I'm worth it, because my current point of view is still that I'm unsatisfied with who I am. But I recognize that this needs to change.

I'm setting realistic, healthy goals, and I would love your support once again!
