Six years ago. Health problems and depression. And I gained weight.
I went from thin to obese.
I was a chubby child ( and my mother had me on constant diets), an anorexic teen, an always dieting, always working out young mum, then an overweight and finally depressed obese person.
I got help for my depression. And for my health.
Over the last six years, I have worked on healthy eating ( again) and have come to love working out ~ again.
So, here I am today ~ a work in progress. Still chubby but not as ,well , fat, as I was. I've lost well over 30 kg - well over 66 lbs.
Cindy asked us to share our fitness journeys. This is mine in a in a nutshell.
I feel very brave sharing these pics . I forgot how it used to be. I feel sad that I am no longer the thin person I was. But happy I am no longer obese. Yet I live in fear, every day, of going back there. Of getting fat and depressed.
It's a mind thing, as well as a physical journey.
