Free to be me

I have been an on again/off again member {mostly off again} since this site first started. I would have months of outstanding results before letting my depression or life worries get in my way and I would plummet right back down to where I was. After speaking with my sister and finding out that she had created a new profile to celebrate her new attitude I thought about how great it would be not to see that huge reminder of about 4-5 years of not following through with my convictions.

This is the cross roads of my life. I am 26 years old now and if I don't take control of my life then I've lost myself. Its is time for me to realize that my weight, depression, bad life choices so far do not define me. I am a pretty, confident, energetic 26 year old woman who is ready to lose the baggage. I am SO DONE with being the old me, the fat me, the tired me. Now its time to show myself and the world who Christina really is.

Member Since: 9/16/2011

SparkPoints: 21,733

Fitness Minutes: 4,832

My Goals:
I have a few short term goals.
My first goal is to track food/fitness every day with rewards thrown in for motivation.
My second goal is to get out to the local parks now that the temp isn't 105 consistently!
My next goal is to do little things for myself that I have always been too self conscious to do.

My Program:
I am tracking what I eat and what activities I do. I am drinking water, getting outside, and proving to myself that being fit is not a hassle.

Personal Information:
I have recently moved to Austin, TX and am in love with the area. There is always something to do, something new to see. I confess to being overwhelmed with options sometimes- but have enjoyed every moment so far.

Okay, you inspired me to get T25! ...now I just have to wait 3-5 business days. (I'm terrible at waiting!)

I struggle with depression (and anxiety) as well. It's really hard to do anything positive for yourself when you have trouble finding joy in daily life. I personally feel I'm in a vicious cycle...I'm fat because I'm depressed, and depressed because I'm fat!
I'm trying to treat exercise as a job. "They" say that exercise releases endorphins, which makes us happy. I force myself to go to the gym. I hate GOING, but, once I'm there, I'm glad. So, maybe "they're" right. I have trouble starting to move, but once I'm moving, I'm glad I started.
My personal advice...exercise. Push through. If that's not enough, get some happy pills from your doctor (that's my next step...I need more help!), and talk to a therapist (I hated therapy in the past, but found an awesome woman with whom I "click").
Good luck, and know that I, as well as tons of other SP members, am here. Feel free to message me at any time.
