Hi all,

 

My name is Chris and I am new to the AoM community. I am looking for a support team to back me up on my endeavors! 

 

First, a little bit of my story up until recently. While going to high school and being an all around teenager, I suffered from depression. This led me to drop out of high school, work crummy jobs through my twenties, gain a lot of weight, and never finish college. 

 

When my Grandma passed away when I was 13, I never realized how much it had affected me. I had gone down a path of depression. 

 

Until a few years ago I decided enough was enough. I decided to go back to college, dropped fifty pounds, took up weight lifting, and running, made new friends, got back in touch with old ones, took the Fire Fighter exam in my state (NY), branched out to new jobs like teaching, and read tons of self help books.

 

Until recently it all seems to have fallen apart. I quit my job in November because I hated it, my girlfriend dumped me a few weeks later, and I had a hold on my account at college so I missed a full year. Not to mention my sister tried to commit suicide in December.

 

So far I am back in college after fighting the hold on my account and looking for work all of the time. I am diving back into fitness heavy like before as well. 

 

All-in-all I am looking for some people to be on my team, and help me while I help them. If anyone is interested please email me/IM me at csouter02@gmail.com or contact me on here. 

 

Thanks guys!

Cool man I'll add you as a friend! 

Read your blog; very inspiring.

Admire your enthusiasm! Wish I had it at your age. Wish I had it now, lol.

You look like you are well on your way; all you need to do is persevere as you beat fate into submission.

All the best.

Thanks Carl! I appreciate the feedback on the blog. Sometimes little things like that keep you going. 

What is "the Nerd Fitness community"?


JB

That made more sense before you deleted the phrase.  Still ... what is it?

I was thinking of another community I am a part of. It's a fitness site. nerdfitness.com. I'm not the biggest nerd but I like Star Wars! Still has some great inspiration. Check them out. 

Hey Chris looks like you are headed in the right direction but, you've got a full table there. Even without the external stuff, most people will struggle with just the job/school part. All I can say and, I'm in a tough spot too, a half mile a day. Don't burn out and start the cycle over by trying to tackle everything at once.

Thank you everyone for the words of encouragement. Things have started getting better but it is still a tough road. I appreciate all the words from this community.

Free Will

"In this world, is the destiny of mankind controlled by some transcendental entity or law? Is it like the hand of God hovering above? At least it is true that man has no control; even over his own will." -Kentaro Miura Do you guys think humans have free will? I don't, and I think its an extremely irrational belief to think that we do, regardless of whether you take a religious or scientific perspective. See More
