Moving on

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hi all, 

I just want to write here that I intend to: 

-exercise everday

-eat good food, regularly

-go to bed at the same time each night and attempt to put a routine on my sleeping

from now on. 

I struggled with body image when my depression and anxiety were  peaking. I abused laxatives for a week at one point while restricting what I was eating. Later, I started restricting what I was eating in an attempt to stop yo-yoing up and down  (+/- 10lbs) in weight. I got it in my head that I had to stay on this new "diet" I had devised so I wouldn't start to gain weight but I was losing 4lbs a week on that. It took some advice from my doctor and a few hints from my therapist to realise that I was engaging in dangerous behaviour and that I had to stop. Thank God I did. I don't want to think about what would have happened if I let it take hold of me.

Anyways, that's just part of my story.

The point of this post is just to say that it is time for new beginnings and taking things into my own hands. I deserve to be happy and I owe it to myself to put in the effort now to try and sustain my soul and my body. It's time for me.   

Wish me luck!
