My Dream for Me

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.

Thanks for Dropping By
