I get down sometimes when people try and deliberately sabotage my efforts. However, there are so many more people who watch without saying anything. The quiet group is wanting motivation and wants me to succeed.

My entire life having people tell me that I was 'too fat', or I would be so pretty if I just lost a few pounds. I have realized that this has to be for ME, and not because everyone else wants me to, or because it would make THEM feel better! Now I am focusing on me, and am finally succeeding!
It's important to remember why you are doing this!
You already know you can't do it.... make the effort to prove you can!
I have failed so many times at so may different things because I wanted to prove I couldn't succeed. (smoking was the biggest example) I finally took to proving I can do something. Each week I start a new goal, and work hard at succeeding. I'm slowly realizing I can (or can't) do anything I put my mind to =)
