  1. Hi there!

    I just joined in hopes of becoming motivated to take better care of my health.

    I've dealt with depression and anxiety a good portion of my life. I stopped taking meds 6 years ago and was on them for 12 years. You have to learn what triggers your anxiety and learn to overcome it and control it. It takes time but trust me, being off meds is so worth it.

    As for paranoia of people judging you by how you look, SAME HERE. It sucks!!! But after so many years of failed diets and exercise plans I FINALLY have been on track more than ever. A big part of that is because I try really hard to not care what others think. I'm doing this for me, so I can be healthy and live a long life so I can see my baby girl grow.

    Just take it one day at a time, avoid doing things that keep your mind open to negativity. Remain occupied, listen to music, watch tv, read a book. I find that it helps being occupied to not let my mind wander and become anxious.

    Since starting my new lifestyle change last week my anxiety levels have decreased drastically, my marriage is even benefiting from my newfound happiness. They're not kidding when they say endorphins are the best antidepressant.

    I wish you so much luck!!!

    You can do this!!!

  2. Hey all!
    My name is Tatiana and I'll be 29 in January. I have a 2 year old daughter and she is my whole world, she really keeps me on my feet!
    I've been overweight my whole life. I'm 220 and I'm 5'9" so it's not that bad since I'm tall, but I'm still overweight.
    I have severe scoliosis but thankfully it doesn't interfere with walking or running (that much).
    At 23 I was diagnosed with cancer, Hodgkins Lymphoma. I fought it with all I had and here I am 3 years in remission and a mommy!
    I'm finishing up my bachelor's in Finance and am fortunate enough to be a stay at home mom while I finish school thanks to my awesome hubby.
    I started running last week! Even if it's just 20 seconds at a time... I prefer it over not running at all. I really need to make a change in my life when it comes to my health, I feel like I've been given a second chance at life and it's time for me to get serious about my health. I want to be able to run behind my little one and not run out of breath or feel so fatigued. And I want to feel good about myself!
    I hope to make some new friends and learn a lot on this new journey.
