An Update

Journal Entry: Wed Jun 4, 2014, 11:08 PM

Well, it has been a while. After suffering a knee injury, I kind of dropped everything but RP for a while. When that didn't help me out, I crumbled and fell to pieces. I sort of distanced myself from everyone but my boyfriend when that happened. After a lot of self-loathing, I finally slapped myself out of it and began to build myself back up. Part of this had to do with re-convincing myself that I was strong enough to get on myself on my feet on my own. Sure, it is one of the best feelings in the world to have friends there to help you, but this ended up being one of those times I needed to do it myself.

I haven't really been active online with the exception of updating family and friends on facebook on occasion, but primarily I have been active on It is the website and app I use to track what I eat and what I burn. There are groups in which you can make your own discussions. Most are aimed towards specific groups, like petites, people losing 50+ lbs, etc, but when I searched, there wasn't one that was specifically for motivation. They have a general forum... but there are so many people who ridicule beginners and even target me for the fact I have a calorie cycle that brings me down to 1100 calories that I follow. (I'm petite, so that is fine. Any lower, then there's a problem.) So, after thinking about it, I made my own.

Turns out, though, that there was already a group that was made by someone else, but it blew up with members so quickly that the owner changed it to being private. Awesomely enough, she and I have become friends both on and outside of MFP. In fact, she's here on DA as tabathana! You should check her out! She's really creative, just she doesn't exercise it on paper enough imo. :)

We have been talking to one another on a daily basis, helping each other with our fitness struggles, emotions, and motivation.

She's inspired me to get back on my feet for drawing much more ahead of the schedule I had assumed I would do.

Everything happens for a reason. Hoping everyone is having a wonderful day and that most is well! I hope to get to my previous to draw list and get things posted up soon!

  • Listening to: Fading - Decyfer Down
