Feeling very low

I have not posted in a while on The Mighty. Lately, my anxiety has been on high. I have just been to a wedding of a friend with my parents, and it makes me realize that I have been alone for a long time. I have never had a girlfriend, mostly due to anxiety, fear, and my autism getting in the way and also fear of being judged and be made fun of due to my autism and also being obese.

It is not fun thinking like this. I want to date, but I cannot find anyone who I like? It is hard to date when you are in your mid-30s like me. What should I do?

I feel better!

I absolutely SMASHED my steps goal today! My daily goal is 6000, so I’m well over. I feel quite tired, and a little bit sore… But I also feel good for it!

Last week, when I hit 10k, I was left in pain for days because I was stupid and didn’t respect my own limits. But today I did it slowly, bit by bit. Rather than doing it all in one go, alongside my sister who always speed walks, leaving me to practically jog to keep up with her, I took my time.

Today I went for three walks, at my own speed, and I took breaks during each walk. I also took my toddler nephew to the park, which we both really enjoyed.

Anyway… I just wanted to share something positive for a change, haha! I hope you’re all doing well. 😊

I’m proud of myself today!

I did good today. I walked into the town centre with my sister and my nephew, AND walked back, too! Normally, I can only make it one way, so I’m super proud of myself. (Altogether it’s just under 3 miles).

AND, not only did I meet my daily step goal of 6,000… I also walked a further 3,096! I feel so good for it. I am so determined to lose this weight. I need to. I’m going to. I’ve got this! 💪

The three words I guess are my current mantra

I have had an exhausting year this year.
My 30th birthday may have never existed thanks lockdown.
I have stayed sober by choice on many occasions I would normally drown myself in rum to numb myself from feeling.
Lockdown gave me a mental breakdown which showed me what I could really be capable of.
But now I have almost finished moving house and while physically fighting with my body day to day something new.
I am obese my bmi 50+ so easily suffering heat exhaustion every other day. But I moved further from work and onto a top floor.
So while I know my body is in agony right now. It will become stronger and build stamina until one day I can walk home without pausing to breath and climbing 4 flights without resting.
Just keep going.
At work I fail this but I am pushing myself beyond my limits. Yes my body fails yes its sort of a mental self harm. But its a healthy one.
My asthma has stopped me for long enough.
My weight has held me back long enough.
My mentality of excuses has held me back long enough.
I say this every time I pause for breath.
And each time I stand and I force the pain and exhaustion to listen to me.
So for today
JUST KEEP GOING. #Depression #PTSD #Transman #exhaustion #obese #suisidal #help #Agoraphobia #WeightLoss #Stamina #mantra

I try so hard to lose weight and get away from being #obese but on days like these all I can think about is chocolate. I had a stressful day at work and a fight with my hubby and could not stand myself in the mirror. There is this voice in my head telling me how fat and ugly I am. But I still don't loath chocolate or crisps. On the contrary ,the not unhealthy the better. I really hate myself for my weakness. In the morning and at work I have no problem having breakfast (overnight oats or porridge) and some fruit. But after getting home it gets bad. Dunno what to do. Nobody seems to understand or care. All I hear is: "Well, just stop it!" But how do I stop????
