In 2015, I was depressed and suicidal. In the search for answers, I began my journey to reclaiming my mental health. I eliminated all negative and unhealthy relationships.
The next phase was developing a better lifestyle. At 240 pounds I set a goal to lose 50 pounds by the summer of 2016, and with commitment, I'd lost over 60 pounds! I found happiness and regained my confidence, through putting myself first.
We all have a purpose, and no matter how significant others might view them there’s nothing more important than your mental and physical health.
In the end, I found balance through the process and made room to learn from my mistakes. Depression is real and mental well-being can be hard to balance but you are not alone!
