Chubsterposted July 6th, 2020 at 7:10 PM I can’t imagine being fat. I’ve gained ten pounds during quarantine and I feel awful. I need to get out more but I’m depressed so it’s hard to get motivated even though I know that’s the only thing that will help my depression and my waistline.

Tomorrow morning is as good as any other. took me about 6 weeks of an 20-60 minutes daily to get rid of my pandemic love handles. hardest part is getting started the first week. WelcomeJul 6, 2020 at 8:22pmTo fat nation, you got one foot on a banana peel and the other on a slippery slope.Now commit, just totally give in. Call Skip theDishes and bulk up baby. Ya!Big is beautiful! unmotivatedJul 6, 2020 at 10:46pmCan’t imagine being fat? Unless you’re an actor bulking up intentionally for a role, nobody plans to get fat, it happens through a lack of vigilance & discipline, or as a consequence of poor health/medication side effects.For me, struggling with depression, motivation has less to do with weight loss than discipline. I’ve lost 100lbs this year & I needed surgery to do it. Now that I’ve recovered & have a surgically altered smaller stomach that better regulates my glandular issues, I track every bite I eat on MyFitnessPal. I make decisions about meals according to my daily nutrition goals, or ‘budgets.’. Exercise isn’t about how I feel, any more than washing dishes is an option.Focussing on the why of eating & exercise has changed my approach & decisions about the what and how.I wish you luck in your lifestyle & mental health issues. My journey started with a trainer who was sensitive to mental health issues & offered nutritional counselling. No need to feel ashamed, alone or unempowered.
