I have been struggling with depression for the past 4 years. I have been heavily medicated and have been in therapy for the past 2 years. Alot of my depression has been associated with my self esteem and how I feel about myself.
As you know I started a journey to loose weight and to feel better about myself. I was traveling along well and had lost almost 14 kilos. I was happy with the loss and although it didnt change my life I was starting to feel a little better.
The problem was that no one really notice my weight loss.
I hadnt received coments from anyone even my family who knew I was desperate to loose weight and the old feelings started to return.
I figured that if no one noticed then what was the point. I may as well stay overweight and miserable as it didnt seem to matter either way.
I have given up over the past 2 weeks and even put the scales away. I just dont know how to lift back up again.
I know that there are some of you out there that have struggled with similar feelings and would love to get your feedback.
Need to get motivated.
