Depression derailed

Well for the past month and a half, I was derailed by my depression. I gained three pounds in that time. I am getting back on track though. Here is to a great restart!

    You got this! I know how depression can derail health goals. But it’s great your getting back into it sometimes that’s the hardest part!

    You can do this!!! :)
  • Good for you for only being derailed for a month and a half!! For depression, that's zooming back! I'm impressed! It' always taken me many months and sometimes years to get back on track!

    Use the gym as your escape from depression! Take out your frustrations and stress on the weights! Once you start seeing the results your looking for your depression will get better. “When you look good you feel good” u got this!

    I had the exact same issue. I had lost 53lbs. Put back on 8lbs due to depression. I've got myself back on track and only need to lose 0.4lbs to get back to where I was. New year goal! Then it's time to get serious again. I would like to lose another 50. And then reset goals.

    This sounds like I wrote it! Glad you’re pulling out of it. I am too.

    Lucky for you, you only gained 3 pounds. When I was down and depressed I gained 30! Haha

  • I was derailed by depression for 11 months not just here but in most areas of my life, so I know that feeling. You got this!

    I know the feeling. Gained 30 back while struggling through a medical health scare that had me spiraling down. I’m back on track (most days) and looking forward to getting back where I was. Exercise has really helped me. I’d be happy to add anyone as a friend that is struggling and I’ll do my best to help encourage and support.

    Have fought with the demons of depression for almost 2 years in the aftermath of injury. Gained a heap. Now losing it. Depression sucks, and it's so different for everyone.
