Thanks!! Usually I don't do so well when offered that situation, but this time I did - proud of that

Hubby is starting the Body By Vi challenge on monday but he doesnt have the mind set to change yet. I will support him and try to help him do this challenge but he has to want to change, not sure he's ready

I'm ready!

Good morning - Happy Aloha Friday!

Thanks for the support here - I really need it.

This morning my husband pretty much DIDNT support me. OUr middle son is in town and he wanted us all to go to the Huge pizza buffet for dinner tonight. I told him I really coul/-dnt eat there and could we chose someplace else, maybe someplace with a light menu I could chose from?

He said no, he wanted to go to the huge pizza buffet to "spend time together" our middle son has a HUGE weight problem, hubby is heavy, I'm heavy.. I want to spend time together but not at the altar of FOOD!

I told him "I'm trying to change and I need your support" but it really hurt my feelings that I felt so pressured to give in to this

But I'm also proud of standing up for myself and my renewed efforts to be on the wagon

"Beautiful Woman Award! you're beautiful inside and out"

Once you've been given this award, you have to paste it on the wall of 8 women who deserve it. If you receive more than 3, you know you're really beautiful! If you break the chain, nothing will happen, but it's always good to know someone thinks you're beautiful inside and out"
