Gym!

Wow it’s been a week since I last wrote a post! I took the plunge yesterday and joined a gym. Mainly to help make myself feel better with endorphin’s, but also to try and tone up and lose weight a little.

As symptoms of depression include, lethargy, tiredness and little motivation this is a big step for me. I just decided to take the plunge and see if it helped in any way. I am trying a class this evening, Zumba.

When I have severe depression before, about 10 years ago, I joined a gym and regularly attended classes. It helped me a lot then and I am hoping it will now.

I thought to help me keep motivated I would share my weight and take pictures weekly to see the difference, hopefully both physically and mentally!

This is very scary for me… I have not weighed myself since before Christmas, and with being depressed and off work I am pretty sure I have put on weight and I will not enjoy this!

Below is my first picture, I do not like this picture – it makes me want to lose weight.

Having just weight myself I am 101kg! Which is 15 stone 13 pounds….the heaviest I have ever been.

I am not going to be silly with a diet and starve myself. Along with regular exercise I am planning on eating 1,700 calories a day. I will be using my fitbit to track my exercise and My Fitness Pal to track both my exercise (linked with my fitbit) and calories.

Hopefully this is the start of a new me!
