I haven't really had anyone try to sabotage me, intentionally or unintentionally, but I do have a fiance who is a chocoholic and drinks pop (diet) on a daily basis. It makes it very hard to stick to my no soda goal (I don't like diet pop, so I usually go with regular when I have the urge).

I don't have sabotage so much as temptations. DH has a sweet tooth and brings home cookies, caramel corn, pies, cinnamon pull apart, stuff like that. Most of want he brings home is easy to say no to...for me... Cos I crave salty stuff. Spmetimes tho, that stuff calls me. Actually it sings my name and I can't resist! LOL!

The good news is that he is starting a weight loss contest next week. Hoping it will kick off a more healthy lifestyle.

The choices you make today will determine the path that your life will take.

Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me, I want people to know 'why' I look this way. I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved.

Oh yes very much so by my older sister, I just let it go in one ear and out the other. I don't think they mean to do this but yea know what?

If they do it means their jealous because they might be trying and don't get the same results. They don't want to ask for help because it shows them as weak.

Really don't give into this and tell her you'd appreciate it if she wouldn't do this.

I had a similiar situation happen to me....but to be honest it hurt my feelings. but then i had to tell myself that that person was just too self absorbs to see pass there own nose. it makes me sad when complete strangers notice my weight loss and then people (family) do not. It did hurt - but i feel good and one of these day it will be very obviouse to them too! thank you for listening to me whine....
Keep up the good work and Have your BDAY where you want it! Gotta love our sisters...;0)

Hi guys. I had an interesting experience today. Today is my weigh-in day and I lost another 3 lbs. I don't talk to my sister too often, but I called this morning and mentioned my 5.5 lbs. I've gotten rid of in the past 2 weeks. She was congratulatory, which I appreciated. About 3 hours later she called from a restaurant to tell me how wonderful it is, how delicious the food is, how huge the servings are, how they make all their own breads, ...ad nauseum, and that's where we need to go for my birthday. I chuckled to myself, - it was so obvious to me what was happening. But I don't think she had a clue. It was very curious to me. Have any of you had similar situations occur? I'm not upset about it- I really think it was subconcious. It will be interesting to see if anything else comes up like this. Thanks for listening, and I look forward to what you have to say.
