HI Nikki - You can do this! Yes, it is tough with kids, and even tougher getting the hubby to get it! My husband and I had conversations when I first started, more like butting heads, about my explaining things to him about what i was going through, eventually he got better. Talk to him, tired and cranky as he may be. I was feeling so alone and sad, like I had NOBODY, not even him. I had to find the courage to tell him just how low I was. Once I did things were able to start getting better. He didn't know I felt that way and we could start working on things... Best of luck to you with your journey. We're all here for you!

hi there Nikki ..............
Sparkpeople is a wonderful place to keep yourself motivated............ many great articles, information and teams.Many people all ready and willing to help keep you to stay on track.........wishing you all the best with your journey....
below are some words to ponder on........


The 5 D's of the Weight Loss Journey

Desire: What exactly do you want?
Defense: Are you prepared for the temptations that are bound to come your way?
Dedication: How hard are you willing to work?
Determination: How long are you willing to keep working?
Decision-Making: Are you willing to take total responsibility for the choices you make?

good luck to you.................blessings and hugs.............lita

There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.
When you get to a plateau, think of it as a landing on the stairway to your goal. And
maintenance is a lifelong plateau, so a bit of "rehearsal" for maintenance isn't the worst thing in the world
Breathe in love & compassion.. Breathe out peace & forgiveness.

My name is Nikki and i have a 3 yr old and a 1 yr old and am needing/wanting to lose about 65 lbs. Going to DisneyWorld in August and would like to be at least around 30 lbs lost by then... I need all the motivation i can get as my husband isnt as supportive as he could be .... he just doesnt get everything that goes into raising these kids pretty much by myself... he work from 5 am to 5 pm and then he is tired and cranky when he gets home and so i still do all the work with the kids and house alone!
