I see a LOT of people are battling depression right now. I'm no different. As I said before, I absolutely refuse to write another depressing post, so that's why I haven't been posting regularly yet.
A great friend and fellow blogger emailed me to check on me and I'm so glad she did. She reminded me that "this too shall pass" and I've always believed in that saying whole-heartedly. Still do. Just waiting on "this" to pass.
I'm just trying to maintain my weight from last Friday this week. I hope I have. Wanting my heart's desires to win out over the bad emtions. Praying every day that it happens soon so I can sail down the scale and get this weight off. I know that losing the weight won't "fix" all of life's problems. But it affects so many things for me, that I have to believe that it will make a huge difference....a positive one. And who can't use a little more positivity??
My gym was packed to the rafters tonight, so instead of waiting on an elliptical, Billie and I spent 45 mins manuvering through the sea of newcomers to do the weight machines, and then we spent an hour trying out a new class called Zumba. It's a Latin dance class. Wow. I didn't know my hips could move like that. It was interesting to say the least, but I think I'll drop some more weight before I do that again. I want to feel more comfortable before I'm in there shaking and shimmying with the skinny minnies. It's tough being the fattest one in the class.
Good luck to everyone getting started again. I know it's tough, but I believe in all of us. We're here for a reason, we know what needs to be done. And for those of you suffering through the depression, whether it's seasonal or a lifelong battle, I'm praying for each and everyone one of you. I know just how paralyzing it can be and I pray that all of us can break free very soon and enjoy the lives we dream of. :)
