Yes I Can

Since I turned 50, I'm finding it harder to keep off the weight especially around my middle. I know I can do this but I need the support of this community. As a first born, I'm extremely motivated by extrinsic rewards like points and awards, so I'm hoping these aspects of sparkpeople will help me reach my goals.

Thank you for passing by at my blog 'How to stay slim while dealing with toxic people' and for your kind words also. I take each day as it comes and I know with god and everyone else on here I will get there, in fact we both will. I have learnt in life that if you want to see something getting done you have to put all the effort in your self and move forward. Only 'we' can lose weight and better our chances. Off course I would like my husband for support but I am using his harsh words to spur me on to do better so I can get the confidence to say goodbye. I just can't at the minute get the courage to leave him as if I am honest he has been verbally abusing me for a few years now. Sadly I am not in that place as yet but who knows what the future may entail. I really appreicate you stopping by. I can't believe that my blog has touched so many and I am truly astonished of that. Normally I do allot of rambling but I do hold my heart on my sleeve and sometimes I get carried away not realising that I shouldn't have said that but the way I look at it, its my blog and its personal only to me. Better out than in. Wishing you all the best along your weight loss journey, take care Dee
