Hope your day gets better. Read your comment on someone else's blog about your dad never thinking you were quite good enough. Like you, I loved my dad, and he's been gone for four years now. But I don't remember him ever once telling me that he was proud of me. Sometimes I felt like he loved my boys and was more proud of them than he ever was of me. I find myself wishing now that he could see me today, maybe he would be proud of me finally, for losing all this weight. I guess we never stop seeking our parent's approval. Kinda sad. I am going to try to turn that around with MY kids, by telling them often that I love them, and that I am proud of who they are. I especially need to do that with my middle son, who is the one that is morbidly obese (like I was). I think he needs it most of all.
