The Sleeping Warrior fandom
[two minutes later]
just to tell y’all that this is the perfect song (imo) for the Sleeping Warrior ‘ship.
I’ve been suffering from depression for a long time now. There are a lot of reasons behind it, but one of the main problems has been my weight. I grew up playing soccer/football, and while I was a bit chunky, I was a lot healthier. I was fast, I was fit, and I didn’t hate myself. My junior year of high school I had to stop playing due to multiple injuries, but in spite of that I stayed tight, because I ran everywhere once I was healed up. College hit me hard, and depression hit me harder, worsening my bad habit of boredom eating. For the last three years it’s been nothing but a vicious cycle of self-loathing, and I’ve ballooned about 100 lbs from my senior weight. It’s come to the point where I can’t stand it any longer. I’ve got too many health risks and problems to let it continue to consume my life and how I live it.
So I’ve decided to challenge myself, to eat better and get fit again. My goal is to cut back down to around 165-170, my ideal playing weight from my soccer days. I’m replacing all of my user pics with shots from my senior pictures as inspiration, so I can remember where I came from, and where I want to go. I won’t be on my regular tumblr for some time—instead I’ll be using time here as a reward for doing what I need to do to get healthy. If you’re interested in following my journey, I’ll be keeping my journal blog at grindlikeagear.tumblr.com, and under thefitfulfire at Fitocracy.
For everyone I know personally, and every online friend who gives a damn, thank you. Thank you for being there, thank you for inspiring me to be better (you know who you are ;-) ). You guys take care.
See you in 15 lbs!
