My family is my Why! I'm choosing to start over. I want to take care of my self physically, mentally, and spiritually. Most of you probably don't know this, but I've struggled with depression most of my life. Lately it has made it hard for me to function. I'm not sharing this for attention or for anyone to feel sorry for me. Please don't! I'm sharing it for anyone else struggling. I want you to know there is hope! In 2011 I decided to make a change. I began to eat healthy and exercise. I also decided to really give my life to Jesus. I lost about fifty pounds and I felt the best I ever had. My depression was gone! No, I didn't have a smile from ear to ear all the time, but I wasn't hopeless anymore. Fast forward to 2012 when I became pregnant with my first son. I started to eat lots of junk again and didn't really exercise. I became depressed again. I gained all my weight back. A few years later I gave birth to my second son. In between I would exercise, eat healthy, and attended church on and off. I was never consistent. I struggled with emotional eating and the negative thoughts in my head. Now I have my 3rd son on the way. Going to make big changes! This isn't just another New Years resolution for me. This is going to be a life style! Believe me. I'm going to fight dang hard to overcome this obstacle! I truly believe that my relationship with Jesus and a Healthy life style healed my depression. I'm not saying it will for everyone. Some people may truly need medical intervention. I'm just sharing my experience. Don't be afraid to get help or talk to someone if you are struggling! There is hope!
