Have you ever sat back and reflected on your life and what you want to happen this year alone, I have and I can say that I am so hoping that my plans for a healthier life style works out for me because I really need things to come together for me now more then ever.

I started last week off on the wrong foot and this week as well. I am trying to quit smoking and my boyfriend doesn't take the hint to smoke in the basement. He tells me that I should just go in the other room where I belong. I look at him and tell him to go and do something useful. He doesn't realize that I will never quit if he doesn't show some compassion for me.

So far this week on the other hand I have done well in getting back into my fitness routine and I am even starting to realize that I cant do my Zumba yet because my leg is still healing. I want to go back to the gym so I can strengthen the muscles up in my legs again but I don't know yet.

I am eating 3 meals a day again and leaving the junk food alone but its hard when you have a family that thinks that they can eat whatever they want and the hell with me and what I want. My boyfriend even told me that I should just stop trying to lose weight. As if I would ever stop and my answer to him was hell no. I am doing this for me and for me only. I want to look and feel like I did before I met him and started having kids.

My blogs are all I to look forwards to when I come online because I post blogs and save them to my compute so it reminds me that I will and should never give up on my goals no matter what my family says.

I am on this weight lose journey and I will reach my goal even if it takes me forever. I will succeed.

    You do what is best for YOU and don't listen to the ones that are dragging you down. They are just jealous of you because you are trying to better yourself and they aren't. Stay strong and keep the faith

    Grat attitude to have, but my goodness you need a 2x4 to get your boyfriend on board too! A good smack to the back of the head usually helps, as my mother would say!

It makes it so much more difficult when you have a family who don't understand what you are going through. And they won't understand until they have to fight the battle of the bulge themselves, which we never wish on our kids, but it CAN happen.

So try to stay strong, use this blogging as a purging device where you can let it all out and then you should feel refreshed and stronger after you write. I know that I always do and within 2 hours after writing, I want to come back and post again!

I am hoping you get more positive support at home, but if not... never fear because we are all here and we are HERE to SUPPORT YOU!

Hugs, Angela

    You can do this even if it's one step at a time. There is all the motivation you need on here since you don't get it at home. I sympathize with you on the smoking. I could never do it with another smoker in the house.
If you need a motivator I am a yell away. Cindy

Sometimes the journey is
Two steps forward,
One step back
Just dont stop moving
