I am at the bottom of the barrel. January brings my worst time and my seasonal disorder. I have everything I need to get moving however my couch wins 99% of the time. Anyone else feel this way? With the cold weather I always find an excuse to stay in and not exercise. I'm pre-diabetic and know I need to change. How the heck do I not change because of this knowledge!! I get so angry at myself then go eat chips and chocolate. I have an eating disorder and depression. So I know what needs to change I just do not want to!! But I do want to I just need to learn how to change and use new things to beat my depression. Food is not the answer.

    It's been a year and I am still where I was last year. I've started a new eating plan and have been exercising regularly this year. Things are turning around and I'm learning I am worth it.

    hi i can relate. this helped me so maybe it will you too.....i learned it from exercise bliss. i told her i hated exercise and wanted a new attitude. she told me my brain was fighting me and i needed to make it about habit. so for the first week i only had to do two wall push ups...it was so easy my mind didnt fight it. i then worked up from there. that was 38 weeks ago and i have been moving every day since. all the best to you!
