Ok, since my last blog on here, there have been some changes. First of all, my parents and my friends parents, and a few other people all did there best to stop us from moving to Los Angeles. They won. Since then I have been living a misareble life. Everything that can go wrong pretty much has, but I'm not going to go in to all that. The main thing that has fialed for me, is my diet. I was doing good, and lost like 5 pounds. THen I gained it all back, and then some. It seems like evrytime I start to try to lose weight, evryone screws me up in some way or another, even when they don't know it. Honestly it seems like nobody wants me to be happy at all. I have no friendds to hang out with anymore, the one friend I did have, moved 30 minutes away and neither of us has a car. I walk a mile 5 days a week to work; and as soon as it starts cooling off, I'll be walking that mile back home. But that mile does nothing for me any more. I have been walking it for close to 5 months now. THe only "gym" that is close to me, is nothing at all, its almost worthless. I have done all I can think of to get and keep motivation, but it's no use. I think the fact that this town that I live in, is so crappy. There is nothing to do at all here, and I'm not exerating either. Walking to Wal-Mart at night is the most exciting thing to do, and it's only a mile to two miles away. Hopefully I can move out of here soon, and get on track better. Till then, does anyone have any ideas on how to keep motivated?

    Believe me when I say I know where you are coming from. I live with my boyfriend who loves to eat a lot of crappy food, and he's terrible with money. So, I, too, am very stressed out, and my motivation lacks from time to time. I'm not always happy, but I stop and realize how many blessings I do have, and that makes things a lot better. So, be grateful for what you do have.

    For food, do your best. Dinners are difficult especially since I share them with him. However, watch your portions. While I am at work, I take this time to eat healthy. I plan out my breakfast, lunch, and snacks because this (more than likely - not sure based on your schedule) is when I have most control over my eating. When you can't control the food, limit portions and stick to vegetables. Heck! Make a salad to go with the meal. Also, get in your water.

    As for exercise, continue to walk to work but also find a way to get some more exercise in. For example, go for an evening walk if you have some time. This is a great time to just relax. There are lots of exercise videos on YouTube that are free! (Tone It Up and Body Rock are great examples.)

    Lastly, you choose whether you are happy. Not someone else. Remember that. emoticon
