Hi friends, Im posting this in fitness section because I want to get answers from like-minded people. Initially I could not work in US due to visa issues. That time depression could make way into my life easily and my biggest challenge was to take care of myself and not worry about anything else. When I got into family way I gained weight and lost confidence. It was a tough battle to restore these two. Ultimately I could do it - lost weight and gain confidence !!:cheers When kids were young, I did not have clarity of ideas as to why Im doing something or how my decisions were taken. Now kids are in middle school and I get time for myself and some clarity in life and actions. To combat negative thoughts I started exercising and started looking good and felt great. In this process eating and staying healthy became top priority in my life (unknowingly). Now I can work but when I see friends who work ( no offence to working ladies !) I see that their priorities are different. Not all, but mostly, women do not have time to eat proper food or take care of themselves. Im not getting any opportunities as of now to work but Im trying to somehow. At the back of my mind I have some thoughts which primarily focus on my health. I feel that I cannot get my time exclusively when I get to work. The very thought of not exercising makes me cringe and I get cranky. Anyone with similar experience?
