I have not liked SparkPeople on facebook because I figured that my mom would belittle every attempt that I made to lose weight. And that I would end up quiting just so I would not have to listen to her. Anyway to me running a race seemed harmless it is not like that is anything either of my parents know anything about. Anyway I posted last night that I walk/ran 1.3 miles in twenty minutes. Today my mom was nice enough to call and tell me that she could walk 2 miles in twenty minutes. So she said that I was not doing good and should be able to do a whole lot better. And that the speed I was running at is totally unacceptable.

    People can be so demeaning. Any progress is great. To each our own, never mind the peanut gallery. You're doing awesome!

    ugh. that's frustrating! unless your mom is speed walker extraordinaire I HIGHLY doubt she can walk 2 miles in 20 mins. I'm pretty fast and it takes me 30. I can RUN it in 20 mins but not walk. I think what you did is an AWESOME start. feel proud of yourself and that you are working to get healthy. you will get your time down faster than you think! my last 2 runs have set new personal bests for my pace and ironically I thought they were going to be slow runs when I set out to do them. Just keep plugging! can you create a "list" of friends that are allowed to see your posts on FB about your successes that doesn't include your mom?
