Thank you Jen for your support. Yeah, the nurse could have been a litle kinder but maybe that is what I needed to get myself in check since my family would never do it for me. Being predispositioned to weight gain does bother me sometimes but I've gotten used to saying no to things. My problem is that I can't really say yes to some things because it does affect my body quickly. I am so glad there is a venting room because it really did help. I was in a mood where Husband and son were eating ice cream and chips etc and I really wanted to have some too. I felt moody and that pushed me over the edge to the venting room.
to you also.

I have struggled my whole life with a weight problem. Obesity runs in my family. When I was 14 I weighed 140lbs at 4'10" and the school nurse admonished me and told me I was morbidly obese. I have worked out and counted calories/fat/carbs/protein since that day and when my son and husband, who have a high metabolism and can eat whatever they want, say relax eating that food once in awhile won't matter, I really want to smack them. I will not let it annoy me. They have no idea what it is like to constantly look at food and decide if the choice is truly worth it and then hate yourself later if you ate a potato chip. I will not let my son annoy me when he says that he can eat anything and he doesn't gain an ounce. I am sticking to eating only healthy foods and when I am physically fit and healthy I will feel better for having achieved it even though it was hard at times. Victory will be that much sweeter. Victory can be my dessert :-)
Whew! that felt nice, great to vent sometimes, thank you Jen :-)

I was out to dinner and was adding my stuff on SP Mobile to see if I could have a roll and cinnamon butter. I was fairly certain I could, but I wanted to be sure, ya kno? Well, my wonderful hubby and very dear friend kinda pissed me off by telling me to just have it, and sort of making fun of me for worrying about it. I know they can't understand, but it's important to me. I have not only myself, but 40+ people on my challenge team counting on me to eat right. I don't need their blasé' attitudes.
knows that denying a Visa/MC purchase because it's "not enough" is illegal and the merchant can be fined up to $1K per offense? Did you? Someone actually pissed me off enough today to file a complaint. Strangely though, I feel better now.
Ugh...long story short...don't go to Your Bet at the Fairgrounds Mall.
