Ah isn't new/renewed love blissful? Take comfort in knowing, someday his little crush on his 'old friend' will turn into same ol same ol and he'll recognize how stupid he is. AND you'll have moved on, while he's pining away.
Much luck to you, guy sounds like a douchebag.
You know you deserve better. Now get on the SP bandwagon and make him eat his heart out!

My goals show that i'd like to go from 148 to 118, while 118 is completely unrealistic and unnecessary, i'd LOVE to get there and indulge on some fatty foods occassionally :)

My story follows almost the same line as yours; except I ended up in a homeless shelter (although I have family in the area). I sunk and sunk. I started coming out of it when I stepped on the scale one day and it said I had gained 30 pounds. Even then, I couldn't bring myself to change anything. I followed fad diet after fad diet, hoping for the one miracle one that would make me look more amazing than the new girl and he'd kick himself for letting me go. I never found it. What I did find was something to help with the weight AND all the feelings. I discovered running. Now I'm not saying you should start; but find something that you can throw yourself into. You may never forget or forgive but your new hobby will help with the emotions. Since I have started running, I have started eating better and working out more regularly. It has also given me great pride in myself (I've also begun entering races) so that anytime I have to see him, I hold my head up knowing I have accomplished things he will never know the depth or magnitude of. Revenge is best served when they see how happy they have made you by getting out of your life.

First welcome to SP & to the team! I hope that you will find the support and encouragement that you need with our team. You have the right motivation, getting healthier for yourself and for your daughter. If you ever need to talk, just message me. You should consider setting up your sparkpage, where you can list your goals and blog about your progress, a lot of members find that a very helpful tool.

Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.

Hello, I am new to both site and team. I wanted to join this team based on my history with my ex and my daughter. I have a beautiful 21 month old daughter who means the world to me. Her mother and I were together 3 years, not married and after two years we found out we were pregnant. Our relationship was always difficult and the more I tried to fix it, the worse it seemed to get. It was when my daughter was nine months old that it finally got to be too much, she was seeing someone else and I was in a horrible state trying to find a way to make it one more day in the relationship just to be close to my daughter. Things just fell apart and I followed suit. It has been just over a year since and I am looking to get back to the happy healthy person I was before we met. It is what is best for me and my daughter who I see a few times a week. I feel being with this team will help since I have no personal support system outside of myself.

wow... what a piece of work hon.. to be honest, from the sound of it eventually you will realize you are better off without him. I know it's going to be hard on your son, but if your son sees you keeping positive and moving on, he will too. Maybe you can use that as a motivator.
I realize you posted this a month ago and I'm hoping you are a bit better. Hang in there, it will get better...

I was recently informed by my husband, of now 6 years (been together 7, that despite the fact that I was in PA packing up our lives to relocate back to Utah & helping his daughter through her sophomore year of high school (he moved here almost 3 mo before us to start his new job) he is "done with me." While he was here he got together with an old "friend" from high school. He tried to tell me she isn't the reason for him leaving me. I am not blind. So, to make a long story short. The night I arrived after driving 3 days in a uhaul with 2 kids & a cat, he tells me we are through. I am now left with no car, no job, and living at my sisters. My 5 yr old is very confused. He doesn't understand why we aren't living with Daddy & his sister.

I am trying so hard to get out of my funk & back on my feet. I can hold down food for the most part now. But it is only sweets & junk food that I am wanting. It is hard to make myself eat healthy. I am in the "punish myself" mode.

I have a total of 6 children...ages 21-6 (this includes my 2 teenage step children). Only the 5 yr old lives with me though. I am looking for people who can help me with motivation & to get me on the track to being healthy. I want to be there for my children & be active for them.

If you read this far, thank you. I tend to get long winded when I start typing.
