Hannibal, Mo just had their Hannibal Cannibal Race that they have every year. I remember last year telling myself that my goal was to do it this year. Well, that didn't happen nor am I remotely close to being able to compete even a 1 mile run. I started on the right foot then soon get discourged from the lack of support I get from my boyfriend (was fience) I'm not on here to complain about him again. I need help and ideas on how to stay motivated and ignore the negativity he brings into my life so I can stay on track and accomplish my goals. If I don't loose this weight I am headed to a diabetic nightmare. I just want to be healthy and active. He puts down every step I take toward helping myself achieve my goal, even reading blogs on this sight and calling it stupid sparkpeople!
