Moving Forward

Sunday, July 15, 2012

Well, I am still on track and moving forward. I am staying active by doing yard work, gardening, walking, using my elliptical and doing strength training.

I am still dealing with some stress in my life. But as part of new chapter I am dealing with my stress head on and not letting it fester. The stress I am currently dealing with is my daughters boyfriend. He is living here with us and is not working and does almost nothing around the house. Normally I would just push it aside and not say anything. I would hide in my room and not deal with it. But I am actively talking with my daughter and told her I cannot respect a man like that. He is lazy and has no respect for anyone. If he respected her, he would be out looking for a job so we would not be supporting him. He brings absolutely $0.00 into the household. I told her she needs to set a time frame for him to find a job. I would never have done that in the past. He is also an alcoholic. I have told my daughter I Could not and Would not live with that. If she chooses to let him to continue to stay here then once the lease is up I will have to look for another place to live. I truly hope she sees he is not the person for her and gets rid of him. I really like living with my daughter but will not continue under these circumstances. And that is a big thing for me.

So until my next update.....
I will continue to grow and move forward.

    I hope in the long run your daughter can see how much you love her to set these boundaries. You are doing the right thing. I hope the situation improves soon!

    It's hard being firm with your daughter, but you are doing the right thing and you are doing it the right way, giving her the choice. I commend you. As for your weight loss, you encourage me. I am "starting over" and hope I can do well.

    No matter what the circumstances are or what struggles that may come up against you, know that you are the one who can and will difference in your life. Keep on moving everyday and watch the excess weight drop off. We are all in thus struggle together.
