    Hi Alesha,

    Don't fret about this. I know that you were unhappy at the moment, but it will get better. Men - I should say mens at very result oriented - like we are not, but they can be anal in their thoughts. You said - you been at this for 10 years and his comments to me appear to be knee jerk reaction. As you continue to develop and change, he may just decide that this was his idea. Weeping may endure for the night, but Joy does come in the morning.
    Hey, Sis, I am 5'10 and my goal is 175-180. I am truly enjoy this journey now and glad to have a barometer to gage especially someone at my height. Have a nice day.

    I'm glad you enjoyed your first session with your trainer! I know what you mean by needing someone there with you to encourage you to keep going. I'm a full time student so I unfortunately cannot afford one, however my university is known for its physical education programs so I do have a few friends who are studying nutrition and fitness who help me out.

    I'm sorry to hear about your husband not being totally on board with your decision. It can be difficult to fully be happy with your decision when someone who is very important to you is against it. He is right about one thing though, you do look stunning. I hope that you do great progress with your trainer and that your hubby warms up to the idea.

    Hey Alesha

    Your hubby will come around, just keep on doing you.
    I’m a personal trainer here in Alabama, and I don’t do it anymore –because I don’t see why they make your physical weight an issue, but some gym do. So, I’ve gained and I’m pushing hard to get my weight back in control. My husband is supportive now –because 1 I want to be happy, and whatever makes me happy makes the whole house happy. Also! If I’m happy then he’s happy. I don’t rant as much. I just throw the things he does in his face, and he does not like that. My husband plays golf 2 times a week. I don’t complain about the 60 dollars he spend on playing golf, but I toss it in his face, because he goes and do as he please with his money. So! I do what I please with mines, and ask for no lip service… So if you’re paying it should not be any complaints. I will tell my husband that in a heartbeat. I did get some more money from my husband to go towards my food, and that’s an extra 100$. No bitching happen, he just upped it, because he sees I’m fully committed. He’ll come around. I don’t understand why our husbands think we doing wasteful spending when we really aren’t. My husband would flip over a pair of 900$ and that’s understandable, but spending 100s on food and the bar… OH MY WORD… What do you get out of it? “Think about this” my mom always tell me. A expensive #1 . You’re going to get a full body makeover with what you are doing with that money… SO I would not feel bad or trip on his thoughts. I’m just saying.
