I received a message from a long lost boot-camper today. She was one of our all-time greats, a woman who inspired many to start exercising and get healthy.
Part of her message said: “I have been so depressed for the past three years. I stay in bed everyday because I don’t know what to do with myself. I’ve given up. All my life I have weighed 130lbs, now I’m 180lbs. I need help.. I need to lose 50lbs and I’m flat out lazy. Can you please help me?”
Life happens. Events occur that we never thought were possible. We can reach a pinnacle of happiness and then spiral downward into depression. But are we brave enough to reach out and ask for help? Are we brave enough to start completely over? Are we brave enough to start a journey again that we once thought we had conquered?
I’m thankful for all of you who decide that enough is enough, that no matter how bad it hurts, no matter how embarrassed you might feel, you are going to climb that mountain of fitness again and make it to the top.
Let me know if there’s anything I can do to help you or a loved one who may be feeling this way.
