I am so happy I took the time to write blogs back when I first started gaining weight. I've since put on about 50 lbs.... not the greatest but being able to get a glimpse at my formerly motivated self has really helped.

These last couple years depression has really effected my being. The lack of motivation and just down in the dumps I felt contributed to bad food choices and not enough movement. I am happy to finally have received some help and figured out some of my past traumas and have begun dealing with them. Things I did not realize had affected me keep coming up but being able to rise above them and slowly deal with the emotions that come up has been empowering. I may not have been happy with what happened or known it was off at the time but now that I do I feel encouraged to deal with these issues and move forward.

I am on day 4/28 on my jumpstart challenge. I feel committed to doing the strength portion and add in the cardio next round. I am looking forward to consciously making new habits and finding more of the motivation I have had in the past. Still trying to figure out my eating but it will come with time. Right now more veggies and avoiding dairy is my focus.

Thanks for reading :P
