Why can family not be as supportive as friends? Maybe it is because I have awesome close friends that are extremely supportive and not judgmental. Where as my family, I know they love me, but they do not always feel supportive of my decisions. I have been struggling with finding real employment and a job that I enjoy. I have attempted going back for a masters but that failed majorly (Probably for more reasons than that was not the right choice). Now I am being pushed back into graduate school by my family because I haven't found the right "real" job yet. It is all stressful. Why is it so hard to realize that life is not like the board game with pre-determined great jobs and stops, it is a wild, wandering journey that sometimes comes with a lot of dead-ends. The stress is not helping with the weight loss because it is another thing on my mind and causes more mood swings that attack my willpower. I must keep repeating my new motto: Tomorrow is a new day, make choices to make it better.

This past weekend I got a new "toy," a fitbit flex because I recently lost my SAT and didn't want to lose momentum while I had the willpower. So while I am still trying to figure out all the details of the fitbit and their website, I thought about joining so community groups. As a scroll through the list, I see a group for 100+ to lose group, I started to join it automatically. Then I was hit with an Ah-ha moment. I realized that my goal weight was not 100 pounds away. A big smile popped onto my face after that. Small progress changes! :)
