Its been about two months now of heavy lifting and eating right. Fitness always came naturally to me until I became depressed during my senior year of high school. I went from Varsity Soccer captain my junior year to quitting soccer, running, and lifting all together. I was so depressed I couldn’t even get out of bed. I packed on a good 50lbs and lost most of the muscles I used to be so proud of. After a failed suicide attempt in November I started getting help to treat my depression. Prozac worked in keeping me from being sad but I was never really happy either. So in January I stepped back into the gym. I lift 6 days a week (I live right next to the gym on campus so its easy to get to) and do cardio 3 times a week. I also started cooking my meals instead of using my university’s unlimited dining. I’m also blessed enough to be at the University of Vermont where healthy lifestyles and choices are embraced. I’ve come so far mentally and physically in just two short months that I’m so pumped to see what the future is going to bring.
