Unhappy Staying motivated while being depressed.

Hi all. I've recently been diagnosed with bipolar type 2, which explains a lot about my previous attempts in trying to get fit / not fat.

Top 5 Life lesson quotes for the day

6 motivational quotes by Mahatma Gandhi for the day

Staying Motivated and Overcoming Discouragement

I'm going to get right to it. First, let's discuss the one thing that discourages us the most -- fear. Fear is the central emotion connected to the lack of courage. It's the main cause of anxiety.

22 Years of Sedentarism. Help me live.

It's quite difficult to explain my body type. At this point, I'm an amorphous mass of weirdly allocated fat. So, a little bit of context. I've always been a shame to my Puertorican ancestors. I'm anti-social, unfit, and most sinfully, one "moon-tan" away from being albino. I've achieved this...
