Depression Stops Your Dreams

Hello world fitters. Depression and weight gain goes hand in hand. The chances are if your big. You wont love your body and your likely to be depress. Unfortunately that’s what the bullies want. They want you to hate your body and hate yourself. Last week we talk about “fat shamming.” “Fat shamming” had led to a lot of depression. A lot of shame. For instance when I gain the weight I really felt ashamed of my body. I no longer felt attractive. Which was embellish with people telling me I was less attractive. All of us must understand that beauty comes in all shapes and sizes. We should have the body that we want because we are all worth it. In order for us to be happy. We deserve to get the body and life that we want.

When we are not where we want to be in life. We get depressed and get uninterested in life. Things that we use to love. Have lost it luster. Now depressive thoughts have filled your head. You feel hopeless like life will never get any better. I have struggle with these thoughts in the pass. I felt alone because I have isolated myself from my love ones. Yeah I was knee deep in depression. We all get a little blue sometimes. For example, maybe your long time love have decided that he no longer wanted to be with you. I’ve been heart broken before. It certainly wasn’t fun. Eventually the pain wear off and you move on with your life. With depression you cant simply push the negative thoughts aside and move on. Depression hold on to you like a tight sweater. It wont let you get away from it’s tight grasp. So how do you tell if it is depression and not just a small case of the blues? What is depression?

“Depression is a mood disorder that causes a persistent feeling of sadness and loss of interest. “Also called major depressive disorder or clinical depression, it affects how you feel, think, and behave and can lead to a variety of emotional and physical problems.” With depression it is more then feeling a little sad. Activities you normally do. You can no longer do them. The energy and positive thoughts are just not there. For example, you are not able to get up and take a shower. That sign let you know that you are experiencing more then your usual woes. While going through these difficult times. It’s good to have a good support group. A support team that you can talk to about your difficult days. Sometimes we just need someone to just listen. No judgment! No suggestions! Just your ear and perhaps a hug or two.

Sometimes a simple hug just wont do. Maybe you need some anti-depressants. Before you get the right drug. you have to know what type of depression you have. Currently there are nine types of depression. They are Major Depression, Persistent Depressive Disorder, Bipolar Disorder, Seasonal Affective Disorder(SAD), Psychotic Depression, Postpartum Depression, Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder(pmdd), Situations Depression, Atypical Depression. In another blog post I will go over in more details about the different types of depression. Right now I just wanted to touch on the topic. To give you guys an idea on the different types of depression. So that you can get the help that you need. For your weight gain problems.

As I mentioned before weight gain can have a profound effect on your mental health. Which then can lead to depression. Some people gain weight when they are depressed. While others lose the weight. It depends on the individual. How about you world fitters? Do you gain or lose weight when your depressed? I myself lose weight when I’m depressed. The following research shows the correlation between depression and weight gain. In a 2009 research by the University of Alabama at Birmingham. The researchers found that the more depress people are. The more likely they are to gain weight more then there happier counter parts. It’s really simple really. When you are depressed you wont be moving that much. Your irregular food habits wont help the situation. So the weight will get piled up. The gainer may feel guilty about the weight gain and in turns eat more and gain more weight. It’s a vicious cycle. This vicious cycle can stop with the right suggestions.

My suggestion is try and get the person moving. Exercising releases the endorphins in the brain which makes you feel good. Whenever I’m done exercising I usually feel good. So exercise and get high on life and your body. When your happy the way things are going in your life. It shows! Your skin will be glowing. Your look young and youthful. Your look ready for anything life has to offer. So go out there and live! Your time is limited! Don’t ever waste anytime doing what you don’t love. Cherish every moment like it is your last. Because it just mate be. Make your mark in this world or you will be forgotten. Never forget your dreams! Don’t let depression stop you from achieving your dreams.

My Weekly Shapely:

Hello world fitters! I’m currently here at work. Thinking about what news you guys want me to report to you. I do try to keep you up-to-date on the latest information. After all when it come to weight loss, it’s good to try different things to see which work best for you. Stopping your weight loss journey because of boredom is a very common reason to quit. For instance this whole summer heading to the park and taking one of my long walks. Sometime haven’t been easy. Sometime I definitely wanted to stay home and relaxed. Especially after I was seeing results. I felt I deserve a cheat day as a congratulation for my hard work. As the cooler weather comes in. I know my walking outdoors will stop and I will take my work outs to inside my house. Which in it self will be a challenge. As I get easily distracted. In the end I have to want it bad enough.

I do want it bad enough. I want to make my weight loss part of my life permanently. I’m not going to put back on the weight. I truly believe its imperative that you make the decision to lose the weight. You have to lose the weight for yourself. In the past I tried to lose the weight for other people. I was changing my body the way they see my body should be. Its your body world fitters! Treat it good make it feel good! This “My Weekly Shapely” I’m making a promise to myself for you all to see. The promise is I wont put back on the weight.” If you see me slipping say something! Call me on it! I want to make this an interactive blog. Where we all can interact with each other. I’m also working on posting more pictures and videos of myself. I hope you all have a good experience with this web-site! Moreover I hope you find it helpful. On that note I’m going to wish that you all have a great weekend! Bye bye world fitters!

Hello world fitters! It’s been a while since I last posted to you. I’m sorry about that. In the future I will post more frequently the best weight loss information. Luckily I have returned with some goodies. One of the goodies I’ve returned with is Pact. Pact is an app that pays you to be healthy. An other goodie I have returned with is I just bought a new domain name. I don’t know if you’ve noticed. My domain name have changed it’s no longer is losingweightlookingandfeelinggreat.siterubix.com It’s now loseweightandfeelgreatwithfran.com. I feel so proud of myself. Knowing that you own a domain it really makes you feel special. To know this is mine and no one else. There is only one company I have to thank for this.

I really have Wealthy Affiliate to think for this. Through them I’m able to communicate with you guys. Giving you the latest information on ways to lose weight and love your body. With that said. That brings me to my final goodie. All this loving yourself can turn out to be very pricey. For example, after you lose all that weight you may want to go shopping to celebrate. Back then you could stretch a dollar pretty well. Now days things are far more expensive. A dollar is not as flexible. To combat the money trouble. In this website I will include some ways to earn some extra cash. One great way to earn extra cash is Wealthy Affiliate. Wealthy Affiliate is a school that teaches you how to create an online business. In a separate article I will discuss Wealthy Affiliate to the fullest. I will also share with you another site I’m working on when its ready. Since weight loss affects every aspect of your life. I will be discussing everything related to weight loss in this website. Lets get started!

Shall we begin the discussion with my #1 recommended app for weight loss? The app I’m referring to is Pact. As I mentioned before Pact is an app that pays you to eat healthy and to exercise. I first join Pact on 6-29-2015. With the intention of trying the app out. I was a little uneasy about giving out my PayPal information. As there are a lot of scams out there. One can never be too careful. Rest assure Pact is not a scam. It has pay thousands of users. So what is Pact?

There are currently 3 healthy activities you can participate in. They are Gym Pact, Veggie Pact, and Food Logging Pact. I’m currently involved in the Gym Pact. To help you decide which Pact is best for you. I have created a short description of each of the Pact.

Gym Pact- Do you find it hard to get up out of that couch? Do you need an extra push to help you exercise? Your in luck. The gym pact is guarantee to give you the extra motivation that you need.

Whether it is walking, running, playing tennis, etc…… Here you can either log into your gym, or log into your home work outs. Whatever works for you is fine. The only agreement is the work outs gotta be at least 30 mins.

Veggie Pact- If your like me you hate eating your vegetables. You much rather bite into your cupcake. Nevertheless in order for us to live a healthier life style. You have to eat more fruits and vegetables. Thats where Pact comes in. Although it is called Veggie Pact it also includes fruits. This commitment with Pact will help you eat the necessary amount of fruits and vegetables. How many fruits and veggies you eat is up to you?

Food Log Pact- If your really looking to lose the unwanted weight. This Pact is for you. Here you log in what you eat. Keeping track of what you eat can really help control your weight. Controlling your weight to create the body that you want is something everyone deserves. I know from experience that if you don’t feel comfortable in your skin. You wont succeed in life! So always remember to love the skin your in. I believe that Pact can help you to feel more comfortable in the skin your in. That is why I recommend it. Although I definitely recommend Pact. There are some technical difficulties that you should be aware of.

Below are my lists of what you should watch out for when using Pact:

1. Sometimes the sign out button doesn’t let you log out properly.

2. If there is a glitch throughout the week. Pact may need to freeze your activities for that week. So you wont get charged. Unfortunately you lose all the work for that week.

3. If you wait too long to report a problem. Then the team can’t really resolve your problems at a timely fashion. You may or may not get charged. So it is best to report your problems right away!

4. Sometimes the app completely go out of whack and make you lose an entire workout.

He say/ She say

1. My activities are not counting.

2. PayPal is the only way to withdraw the money. Why is that?

3. Community voting issues.

4. I don’t like Pact.

5.  Pact is not worth it.
