You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face.

Mistakes are the portals of discovery.

Don't be afraid to give your best at what seemingly are small jobs. Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger. If you do the little jobs well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves.

It is never too late to be what you might have been.

Hi MRICKARD776 emoticon emoticon to the Sparkpeople and the Dealing with Depression team!!! Whether it's emotional eating or medications as the cause, depression and weight gain do seem to be a double edged sword. By managing our diets, increasing our exercise and staying well hydrated we hope that will help turn the weight gain around. We are all in this together. Please share often. We love to learn of your progress and encourage you along the way. We are really glad that you have decided to join us! Take care and God bless, Deb

Hi. Welcome to the team. Yes, it does seem at times they go hand in hand. Depression can affect your weight and your weight does affect your self esteem. This is a great team with lots of caring supportive members who truly want to see all reach their goals, personal and health wise. Stay in touch with the team for the most motivation.

I love SparkPeople

Today is the first day of the rest of my life.

I am responsible for my own happiness.

My name is Bonnie I live in CT DST

I went from 258 to 126 pounds and have maintained it since 12/28/12.

Too Blessed to be Stressed.

You know what they say, a journey starts with a single step. There is fantastic information on SP related to anxiety and depression. Changes in food choices and keeping active and moving can be a huge change for some of us. I hope you find a lot of motivation on the Teams and we are glad to have you on ours. emoticon

I have never approached my weight loss journey while caring for my depression, but clearly I should, since I am struggling with both at the same time and when one goes bad so does the other.
Anyway, just saying hi, and thanking you guys before-hand for the assistance and love.
