Last year around the same time I was pumped up ready to workout and change my lazy lifestyle. I would always be home alone then people just started staying home and I felt I guess you could say shy?? But I still kept it going then my bf quit his job and was ALWAYS home so unfortunately I stopped working out because I wasn't comfortable working out in front of him. I had bad body image issues btw. I did ask him to workout with me but he said these were "girl" workouts so I just said w.e and fell back to my lazy ways. Sigh*
Now I'm sure I'm heavier than I was last year and I have reached the point where I can no longer take this. I'm depressed overweight and feel helpless. I want to feel good again and be in shape not skinny!!!! Im still with my boyfriend and he's aware of how I feel because it has affected our relationship a lot. Today was my first day working out and I want to stick to it. But I feel not so motivated and can't get through easy workout videos anymore due to how unfit I am. What can I do??? I don't want to give up on something that I really want.
Any Ideas, opinions, advice?

I'm very guilty of the new year new me resolution!!! For some reason it never goes as planned. But I decided to start now because oh how bad it feels not being able to wear a cute swimsuit at the pool and have to force yourself to put a t-shirt and shorts :( My goal is to be as fit as can be by the time I turn 23 and I'm only 19 turning 20 in 2 weeks. Time isn't an issue I have lots I guess I put myself down so much over the year that I lack self...

Sounds like you're motivated but have little support! You can find that here but it's only digital but there's plenty of it! Find 1-2 people you can lay eyes on to support you and you're well on your way!
