#tacosalad for lunch! Trying to get out of this sadness I’ve been feeling. If you don’t struggle with depression here’s a little bit of what it feels like. You’re going about your week feeling great and laughing with your family and everything seems like Life can’t get any better. Then slowly something in your mind starts to change. For me, it’s not so much negative thoughts. It’s a hormonal change or maybe a chemical change that feels like a dark rain cloud is over me, following me around my house ... my every move. Sometimes I cry for no reason. Sometimes I just sit and stare at the wall for hours while thinking “snap out of this!!!” But I physically can’t. Then two or three days pass and you feel like you’re worthless and you feel like sleeping (luckily I can’t do that bc of my family) the days away. Depression is not something you can control. I can go through the motions and fake being happy to make others feel more comfortable around me all the while I feel like crying on the inside. During these times I try hard to focus my mind on other things. Today I’m going to make myself get up and walk or jog. Here’s to hoping it helps. Side note: I’m so thankful they caught the Texas bomber. Praise the Lord! #depression
24 pounds of body fat. Gone.
This girl. She was the girl who told me she liked doing the programs on her own, she didn’t need the group. She still doesn’t want to share her progress because she’s worried she’ll offend people. So.... I’m doing it because she deserves to be recognized for her HARD WORK.
She finally joined a group after life threw her some curve balls, went all in with a program that’s 80 days long, and is absolutely crushing it. Outside of the 24 pounds of body fat gone (that was NOT an exaggeration by the way) there is so much other positive change. Just in talking to her you can feel the confidence and happiness she has gained.
Good nutrition helps. Showing up for a sweat daily doesn’t hurt. A group of people supporting you is definitely a positive.
None of those things made this happen for her though.... SHE DID and you can bet your ass she’s not slowing down 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼
