My mom had passed away almost 13 years ago from an accident. That really takes a toll on a person. She also had weight issues and was on and off diets as well. For me though, I've always had a weight issue. And especially after I had my first child, it's been harder fro me to lose it.
About 3 years ago, I had all the ambition in the world to lose weight. I started going to a women's fitness center 3-6 days a week, ate healthy, and my weight was melting off. I would buy a cute shirt or jeans and they would only fit for 1-2 weeks and then they would be too big.
Then we had to look at our budget as money was getting very tight. So my work schedule changed along with our family schedule at home so it became harder to find time to exercise. Then we were going through court hearings for custody of 2 of my fiance's kids. That became so stressful for many reasons - and it really shouldn't have been as bad as it was if there wasn't so much drama drug into it. So that became the focus. Well, he was awarded custody and then the focus became getting everyone adjusted to living together and getting the 2 kids adjusted into our daily routine. So now that everything is getting as normal as can be and less stressful, I'm at this again! I know it has to be a lifestyle change, so I'm taking it one day at a time.
And I do know where you're coming from with your son. My fiance is overweight as well and he'd rather bulk up with muscle when he works out. But he goes through his roller coaster too - he'll work out for a while, then he's too tired from working his butt off during the day at work to go to the gym in the evening. I've been in past relationships that I've been made to feel like my weight is a huge issue that I became insecure and I don't want to do that to my fiance, but I want him around for a while too.
