Walking With Dad

Dad and I went for a 2 hour walk today. I took some pictures of both him and the scenery. Day 4 of my diet and exercise program and I’ve lost 3lbs total this week. I’m still violently depressed after realizing just how fat I’ve gotten, but at the rate of losing about a pound a day or two, I may be able to melt the first stage of this juicing/vegetarian thing away. I’m scared when I eat meat again that it won’t hold well in me. It happened to a friend of my moms back in the day. I’ve left myself with spare calories the past couple days and it feels good to be a calorie counting walking full time student who works three days a week. I have a lot going for me now that I didn’t surely before, and though my anxiety is still pretty paralyzing I’m in better emotional shape than I have been in years. Now when I lose all this weight and get in good PHYSICAL shape I’m totally going to learn to dance hip-hop style.

  1. I can empathize. Depression, gaining weight, all of that. Wishing you the best on your journey. It can take time and is bound to be up and down, but it will happen. Hip hop is a great motivation! Sounds fun. You should submit some of your photography to our gallery (it’s mental health related). We’d love to feature you and your work! Email and let me know. There’s also submission info on the site. Feel well.

    • thanks so much šŸ™‚ I’ll collect my ‘mental health’ pictures for you and send those over this week for submission!
