Feeling So Overwhelmed and Undermotived

Monday, July 23, 2018

I have been having a hard time losing weight this time around. I know its because of my depression and the fact that instead of taking time to myself I surround myself with work, kids and responsibilities that feel like they are suffocating me. Why do I do this you ask? If I am suffocating under the pressure of life I can't focus on myself. This helps me to avoid my issues and instead direct them to help others which makes me feel good for the day until it gets late and I'm so exhausted from exerting my time and energy on others I feel under motivated. Meanwhile I start to stress eat and have no interest in working out.

This needs to change. I need to to change this.

    Raising a family is difficult. Working is stressful.Going to school is demanding. Doing all three takes a lot of guts, energy, patience, and time. You give of yourself so much! Some people don't even try to succeed. Maybe a good friend can babysit.

    I so understand this. But if you dont take care of yourself you wont be able to be there for anyone. I know my depression gets in my way but we need to remind ourselves we are important!

    This is like putting on your oxygen mask first so you don't pass out. You can't help anyone if you are unconscious. Small steps can lead to big results. 💗

    (((HUGS!!!))) I have been guilty of the same things. A few years back our church leaders were afraid we were in burnout. I learned that we can only love others AS I LOVE MYSELF. Fear of what you will find is worse than anything you will face. 👍

    I'm also an emotional eater... and I also take depression meds. You need to see your primary care doctor and get your depression straightened out. Then you'll be able to structure your time, and get time for you. It is doable.
