Post Break-Up Weight

Okay, so either you binge eat your sadness and/or anger away or you take control and start caring for yourself emotionally, mentally, physically and spiritually here. I choose the latter. 

First, I have to confess a few things. 

  1. Emotionally, I was at my highs and lows. I asked many questions and none of the answers were good enough until the truth came out. I was going through the motions so I did "forget" to eat throughout my day if I did not make actual plans to go to lunch with friends. 
  2. Mentally, I kept strong throughout my day but nighttime was the biggest struggle to keep my mind from wandering. 
  3. Physically, I was at my worst. I did not care about my body or how I felt. 
  4. Spiritually, I was trying my best to find peace in the decision my ex made. 

Now we can talk about how I decided I was better than all of that. 

I tried to go to the gym for several years but it was a chore. I struggled every day to try and find the time for it. It didn't last long. However, after the break-up, I found more time for myself and actually enjoy a lot more me time and started going to the gym you relieve tension or unwanted stress. The break-up coincided with my New Year's Resolution for a better me. Four months passed. I lost 15 pounds, go to the gym daily, and I found myself again. I found myself through forcing myself to meet new people, to going back to writing, for physically challenging myself to push further at the gym, for mentally staying more positive and keeping good people around myself. Have fun with life. Life always goes on. See the good in a bad situation is what got me through to understanding and not holding onto something that truly was not meant to be. Value yourself more each and everyday.
