It's hard when you have certain expectations and then the people you love the most are the ones who let you down! I know - I've been there too!
Glad to hear you're back on the right track! Keep your head up and know that we're here for you too!

Thank you all so very much for all of your comments!! Just to let you all know, I have surpassed it and I am refocused! Cake is all gone (thanks to me) but I am moving onwards and concentrating on my goals.
Claudia I wish you an early Happy Birthday!! Since today is Friday, I would probably miss it, I dont really connect much on the weekends.
Vivian Thanks! I am 100% concentrating on me! I have a goal set for the end of the year and I will do what it takes to make it! I will finish this year and start next year on a good note!
Thanks again to all of you!!! Your thoughts really meant alot to me!

Aw, Suekky that's awful about your birthday!!! Mine's this coming Sunday, and don't you think an excellent birthday present to yourself would be to refocus your efforts and restart your plan for your healthier, skinnier you? I know it's tough this time of year, and out birthdays make it harder but you can be strong!! (and if you do indulge, get your butt up and workout some more!!) You can do this!

A very happy belated birthday to you. I kind of understand as no one remembers my birthday ever and we live in the same town. I can only imagine how you feel. Just remember...you have all of your spark friends. I prefer friends to family most of the time anyway.
You have given an important gift to yourself - taking control and achieving a great deal of weightloss and fitness, even while taking care of small children. I've been there and I know the degree of discipline and motivation that takes, so you should be very proud of yourself. Now, don't let all that effort and achievement be consumed by what is beyond your control. Do this for yourself and value yourself - refocus NOW and keep on working towards your dreams and goals because the results are well-worth it!
I wishyou many, many more birthdays in good health and joy...

Hey Happy Birthday to you, also you have come along way in your weight loss journey! I've never been away from my family for as long so I don't know how that feels, but I'm sorry that your family and HB were so inconsiderate to you on your special day! I know it makes u feel bad what they did but don't give up on yourself, having a bad day is ok try not to make it many bad days, your doing such good things for yourself now you can over come this, call your family and talk to them, let them know it hurt!

SUEKKY I'm sorry you're so down. That must have been so upsetting for no-one to call on your birthday and even your husband to forget. Our happiness so often depends on others so at times like this I think its imporant for us to be responsible for our own happiness (easier said than done I know!). Call your family, wish them happy holidays and hopefully talking to them will help cheer you up. Do something for yourself as a birthday present to you!
Happy Belated Birthday, sorry I missed it

Dont want to seem like a whiner here but I am having a bad week! It is the holiday season and it is always so hard for me since I moved to Sicily. I have been here 5 years now and have not been back to spend a holiday with my family in Indiana yet. But the thing I suppose that is really bothering me now is the fact that Tuesday was also my birthday and not one person called to acknowledge it... man really made me feel even more like I was alone. Even hubby forgot! I made myself a cake and have been the only one eating it! So, I am posting this I suppose I need support, motivation to get this weight loss going because I have been heading up instead of down!
