Well here it is. A new year, an end to another week, and another blog. Not much to update on this week. Not much has happened. I got an offer on the car and when my boss found out how much it was, $360, he got mad and decided I needed to get my car fixed and made the arrangements and all that stuff. Turns out, it's not the timing belt. I guess from what I understand, my catalytic converters got so clogged, that fuel got into my spark plugs and flooded them and that's why it won't start. Go figure, huh? I still don't have my car back, but I do have transportation and that is very helpful. Especially when you don't like depending on others who live an hour away to come get you for work or if you have a doctor's appointment or need to go to the store. Time will tell the tale on this one. And on Thursday I got sick with a stomach virus and had to stay home and sleep that one off. Bright side is that I got better after that day. And that day off from eating helped me see a 3 pound loss this week. Now to keep up that momentum and actually stay in my calorie ranges again. Working on it. I'm working harder starting this week. Here's hoping I control myself. I'm also doing a Biggest Loser boot camp DVD for the next 6 weeks. I thought that would be a good way to ring in the new year fitness-wise and honor it's long-awaited return. I don't expect to see the numbers they see on the show, but I do expect to see numbers. And I know I will as long as I work for it. Which is a little bit of a sore spot for me, I have to admit. Last night I was laying out the plan for the next 6 weeks with my fiance because he said he would join me to get fit and hopefully have a family in the near future and I can tell he just doesn't want to. His stupid games are more important to him than his health and that hurts me. I know I can't change those that don't want to change, I'm just hoping that once it gets started he'll see that it can be just as fun and much more rewarding than those games. I guess we will see. I'm still upset about it from last night. I wouldn't say I'm angry like I was, but I am hurt. It feels like I have no support anywhere other than on here and I think I should be able to get just as much support from my just-about husband as I do from everyone here. It just upsets me. Anyway, that's enough rambling for this blog. Until next time. Take care, spark friends!

    Sometimes it's hard to support change in others because it would mean confronting change we're not ready to make in our own lives. And you're right - you can't make someone ready to change. You only have control over your OWN decisions, and you can hope that as he sees getting healthy CAN be fun, he'll be more ready to make changes himself.

    Hang in there. You know we ARE here for you!
