I know I’ve been away for a while but there is a good reason. I havent been feeling motivated and I’ve been feeling down about life. I’ve been trying really hard to not let it interfere with my day-to-day life, but we all have our days. Well….It’s been about a month for me but I’m trying to get back up on the upward climb again.
I’ve plateaued for the most part in my weight loss; I’ve managed to not gain any weight but I just haven’t been able to shake any more pounds (over the past 3 weeks or so). But over the past week or so, I’ve noticed a decrease again.
I want you guys to know that if you’re feeling off or not well, it’s okay to ask for help. I know that’s something I’ve been struggling with and I have struggled with for quite some time. I am going to the counseling center tomorrow and I’m going to write a feelings before and after about that since I know a lot of people don’t want to go to the counseling center due to the stigma or for fear.
But I am here to tell you it’s going to be all right. Reach out to your family or friends or your professors if you really need help; it doesn’t make you any less of a person or degrade you at all to look for help, because your well being is top priority. It can get better and it WILL.
