No matter how many times I "fall", I will always get up.

I have battled depression since my teens, as well as anxiety, but in the last few years, it's gotten worse. I no longer find happiness and pleasure in things that I used to.

^^^ The first account I ever made on Sparkpeople.

Member Since: 9/17/2010

Fitness Minutes: 9,687

My Goals:
Long Term:

Lose 50 lbs by May 2020

1 pound a week

Short Term:

Lose 10 lbs by September 30th, 2019

My Program:
1. Go for a brisk 30-minute walk twice a day

3. Keep track of all the foods I eat
4. Be in bed, by 11 pm. No more late nights

Personal Information:
I'm from Central Wisconsin. Lived here my whole life. (And yes, cheese is my favorite food. haha)

I've been on Sparkpeople for almost 9 years. I've come and gone throughout the years. My sugar addiction and depression with anxiety have ruled my life, which has caused me to gain 100 pounds over the last 16 years.

I have six children. Three of which I am estranged from. :( I have a grandson who is 7 and a granddaughter who is one.

I was diagnosed with a meningioma (brain tumor) last July and I haven't had it removed yet. My anxiety keeps me from calling and making the appointment. My doctor reassures me that it isn't cancerous. I have osteoarthritis, and I'm prediabetic.

My passion is photography, drawing, and writing.

I graduated from college last summer and received my Associate's Degree in Business Management. I have one more class and then I'll have earned my Associate's Degree in Hospitality Management. I am returning this Fall to my college to ear

    I see that you need encouragement... hope everything is ok.

    In a previous blog you mentioned that you haven't been to meetings. I can't remind you enough how important they are. Don't isolate yourself. Allow Jehovah to help you. Allow the congregation to help you too. And Pray. And pray some more. Your spiritual family loves you and Jehovah God does too.
