My last blog post was about my start to my weight loss journey. But it is really the 'start of getting to were I want to be' journey.
You may remember a while ago that I did a post about my depression. Recently the Big Black Dog came back and bit me on the arse HARD! And I am slowly crawling my way out of it! When I am feeling my lowest I retreat into myself, I hide away from the world. I know that I am the only person that can get myself out of there. I hide from everyone because I don't want to drag people down with me.
If you are my Facebook friend you might have noticed that I have been sharing lots of inspirational quotes lately, I find these help me stay positive and to move onwards and upwards..... I recently received a PM from one of my beautiful friends thanking me for posting them because it was helping her as well.
I have learnt through my journey that negativity and blame within yourself and others doesn't help you. You just have to let it all go, and concentrate on the good things in your life. Onwards and Upwards!
I have been on medication for this illness for 10 years, I have been through lots of different ones trying to find the right ones for me. I know one if the side affects is weight gain, and as I said to my husband last week 'I would rather be fat and happy then skinny and miserable' but I also know that exercise only enhances those happy endorphins. So off to the gym for me :-)
And what's a blog post without a scrappy share? I have used another photo that my friend Tanya from TMK photography took of me last month.

This month I had a layout published in the Scrapbooking Memories Magazine. It was a layout about how I was committing to be fit.... I took a photo of my new runners that I bought in preparation of getting off the couch and to the gym.... Well.......... These shoes look exactly the same... Worn half a dozen times... And not for what they were intended to be used for :/ after seeing that layout published I got a huge kick up the butt... And from some gentle prodding from some of my gorgeous friends, I started going to the gym again. I am leaving shortly to go to my first ever PT session.... And I am scared shitless!!! I know it is going to be hard.... BUT I HAVE JUST GOT TO FUCKING DO IT, in the words of the very inspirational Michelle Bridges ;)
I am going to share a very embarrassing photo of me, all 70.4 kilos of me :(
Wish me luck on this hard and long journey xxx
I love the criteria for this months OOTH! We had two use 2 complimentary colours (I used blue and yellow), paper tearing and some felt.
I was looking through my material box looking for some felt to match my papers when I remembered some pre cut felt sheets that I had bought soooo long ago and hadn't even used yet :/ they were perfect for this challenge.
