Hey guys, was hoping I could get some feedback here. Maybe someone is in the same situation and can relate.
I'm 29, single mom (of course), of 2, not working right now due to health issues, living with my father. Part of my health issues are due to the weight I've had on me. I've been told by my doctors that losing weight will help me. And I have lost some. My highest is 220, I'm down to 182. I'm 5'1, by the way. You'd think my father would try to be understanding of that. I do receive assistance and bring groceries into the house and buy things for the house. So I do contribute something to the household. And I clean up after everyone, including him.
He always wanted me to be athletic and active. Now that I am and I'm going running/walking early in the mornings before everyone is awake and I'm doing 5k's, he seems to be annoyed with that. He's not supportive of it. He's mean to me about it, in fact. I just don't understand.
Running is not something I ever saw myself doing a year ago, much less being in a race and I just completed my 3rd race and am training for a half marathon! You'd think he'd be proud of me and supportive. I just don't understand. My mother passed away in 2005 so he's the only parent I have left and I feel silly at almost 30 wishing that my dad would just be proud of me, but I do.
Can anyone relate to this or give me some advice?
