I reached a sort of emotional low back in May, too, and that's what got me motivated to get moving. Exercise can really help with depression/anxiety and self-esteem & self-efficacy issues as well. The attitude I adopted to get me going was: "Something is better than nothing" and "Exercise is a gift [for myself]."

Oh, and I didn't weigh myself for the first 6 months. I focused on the mental health benefits and not the physical benefits, because the emotional benefits showed up two months before I started noticing any physical changes.

emoticon emoticon I keep a journal to be accountable and see where I messed up and where I did a good job. Everything is manageable, just have fun doing it.

I've been struggling for so long and never gave it to serious of a thought. With the way my last 2 years have gone I have really let myself go. Mentally and physically. I suffer from depression and (recently) anxiety. I have also developed other health issues that concern me enough to seriously do something about it!! I want to exercise more and try to eat better....
