It’s been a LONG time since I’ve posted to this blog. I’m grateful I can say I’ve been doing really well. 🙂 I truly feel like the worst of my depression is finally over. I am medication free, suicidal-free (if that’s a word LOL) and just in genereal feeling free to begin living the life I’ve wanted to for over a decade.
It’s funny to think that a couple years ago I removed any trace of instability from these blog posts, as I sought fulltime employment. I didn’t want any potential employer to turn me down because they saw the brutal honesty I had shared on this blog. Well, those posts will be reposted! My husband and I now are living more frugally, have paid off some debt and I no longer have to be working, so I can be completely, openly ME! I’m grateful for how those difficult, sometimes terrible moments made me who I am and I look forward to sharing them again. I am happy with how they shaped me, well, at least emotionally…
Physically, I am not in great shape. Stress, three pregnancies, and depression have taken their toll on my body. But I am ready to change that! I NEED to change that. I will still be writing reflections on life, but I will also be dedicating this blog to my weight loss journey. I started eating healthy and exercising hard yesterday (again) but this time I am not giving up. I am taking a healthier road when it comes to everyday living and making the most of this life!
I started this blog hoping my experiences could help others, but now I ask for your help. Please follow me! Please comment! Please message me on Facebook! I need to be held accountable. 🙂 I need to be cheered for and prayed for. There is so much I want to do that I’ve been puting off because of my weight, because I was self-concious about my appearance or physically uncomfortable, but I can’t wait any longer. I am starting those other creative endeavors while I simultaneously attack this beast of food and fat! I hope you join me and we can all live happier, healthier lives!
