Wow Misty!! Other than living with your in-laws, I could have written your response to this post word for word! You pretty much described EXACTLY how I'm feeling right now!! As much as I'm sorry to hear you're feeling that way, I'm very glad to hear I'm not the only one! LOL!

Where are you at in your life change? Well, i'm definately not where i want to be. i know what i should be doing, but i have no motivation to do it. i'm not happy the way i am, but i don't have any help or support to fix anything. everyone says i'm fine the way i am.
Are you where you hoped you would be by this point? see above
What things are you proud of yourself for accomplishing? not much. i did do some exercise today. nothing big because my back has been bothering me. but i did something. that's more than i usually do.
What things are you struggling with? eating the right foods. i'm living with the in-laws until we can find a house and it's hard to eat right instead of just eating what they have. also, finding motivation to exercise. when kelsey's napping, i like to relax while i can. i need to sacrifice my relaxation time and get some exercise in.

Where are you at in your life change? well i only just restarted this wk and am so far doing really good, im motivated which i wasnt at the start of the yr.
Are you where you hoped you would be by this point? NO, i was hoping to be atleast 10kgs lighter.
What things are you proud of yourself for accomplishing? Im glad im back on track and that ive been sticking to my meal plan and exercising again, its amazing how good it feels to eat right and exercise.
What things are you struggling with? so far nothing BUT i know it will be hard to stop myself when i get around junk food again, i just cant stop myself, i just eat and eat when theres something yummy in front of me.
Well... let's see. So far so good, I am in the middle of my 3rd month of a lifestyle change! Quit smoking, soda, eating off kids plates, go to the gym now 4 days a week and have currently lost 15lbs so far since Jan 1st!
I am also taking time for me now a days! I have 3 children whom I want to live for! I want to be healthy and happy! Oh and it will be a plus to wear a nice bathing suit to the beach this summer!
Setbacks...I don't really have any right now! I am proud of everything I have accomplished! What makes me the most proud it that I proved my husband wrong over and over during all this. (He didn't think I would be able to stick to it!) Sparkpeople has been a tremendous tool for me! Thank you everyone who helps and motivates us all!!
I only started Sparks a month ago but already I am having to break those habits that it took me 30+ years to learn. I have also learned that this is a marathon not a sprint to the finish line so I can take my time to change my life.
I still struggle with those trigger foods that I think make me feel better when I have a bad day so I try not to even keep them in the house.
I hope to keep up this routine for the summer when the kids are out of school.
