Hey guys! So I've had this app on my phone for about a month now. And I want to be serious about this. I've gained too much weight this year, and I desperately want to lose weight. I recently got off my anxiety and depression medication and have been stress eating over school lately. I am very insecure and constantly worried about people judging me about my weight and generally thinking I am gross or unattractive. I don't know how to start. Motivation is very hard for me. Lately all I've been wanting to do is lay on my bed. If any of you have any tips on starting motivation every week, that would help me a lot. I would also love a buddy?

If this helps: I'm a younger(in my teens) girl, very artsy(drawing painting guitarist), I love everything to do with music.

Thank you so much for reading and the help/motivation I will get from you lovely people. ❤️

You sound like me when I was younger... my teens were pure hell... but here I am, some 30 years later, and I have to tell you that life only gets better and easier... so keep that in mind.

As far as the app goes - I also had it on my phone for the longest time before I worked up the courage to start it... and once I did I couldn't figure out what took me so long. Just go for it. Put on a playlist that makes you want to dance and just go running. It's not hard physically, especially if you are in your teens... you don't have to overthink it because it's all planned out... you just have to follow the instructions and show up three times a week.

just do it.

Getting started is tough. I had declared to myself that I'm going to start today bit didn't. Then with out thinking about it I went running.


Now I'm addicted to running. My mood sours when I don't run. It really helped me to log my weight and what I eat. The history tells the story. I've lost 20 lbs and an easy run ( light day) is 5K. When I started I couldn't have imagined that.


You can do this.
