August 31st, 2014 Update: Nothings changed since last year, im still overweight and struggling with it. I went into another depression earlier this year (around January ) and had to take meds again. The meds are working for my depression but its getting to be quit impossible to lose weight. One day I will go back to my former self. The person who loved working out and eating healthy without a thought of why. That's what a mental Illness can do to you. But I'm hanging in there and will be successful again...when its my time =-)
April 15th, 2015 Update: I'm now medication free. I do feel anxiety creep in but I stop it in its tracks. When I feel myself feeling down I find something to lift my spirits. It isn't easy, but its not impossible. Its been a few weeks (about) since I've come off the medications completely. Oh and I also started seeing a counseler. I feel that his sessions along with just taking better care of myself will lead me on a path I have yet to discover. Contentment.
