Caught Between Two Voices and Neither Is Mine...

The other day I told my DH that I wanted to lose 30 lbs. He proceeded to say, "that I would be too skinny and look anorexic". My mother was in the room and said, "She's got a lot of stuff on her to get rid of before sheee gets anorexic." That's when I realized that I need to listen to only one person ME! I know what is best for ME. I know how I feel at certain weights. I will lose the amount that makes ME feel good about myself. I do love myself this way since I've lost 45 lbs., but I know that I will have more energy and feel better when I lose the rest. The rest being what is good for ME!
Now to find a place to live so I can move out of my Mom's house is my next order of sanity. It's funny how we have the same dynamic at 51 & 81 as we did 10 & 40
