Welcome to Spark... and to this team! You've definitely come to the right place... you'll find tons of information and alot of great tools to help you reach your goal.

I have a hubby very similar to yours... and I've learned over time to just tune him out. You need to do this for yourself, not for him or anyone else! And you CAN do this!

Remember that life is not perfect... and a journey like this definitely is not either! When you do make a "slip" or mistake, jump right back on track the very next meal... don't wait for the next day, because you can do a whole lotta damage if you do.

GOOD LUCK reaching your goals!!!

Hi there. I am a 32 year old wife, mother of three, and full time nursing student. Three years ago, I was 30 pounds lighter than I am right now and I really need to get back there. Emotionally, I was so much happier than I am now. I am not so much of a "number" person as I am a "how I feel" person. Three years ago, I was actually at the end of the rainbow after losing 60 pounds over a year and 1/2. I worked my butt off and loved every minute of it! Then I got pregnant again and just have not gotten rid of the other 30 pounds. I constantly feel drained and have a closet full of clothes that I really want to wear again. I refuse to buy myself new clothes at my weight right now because, really, I don't want to waste money for clothes that I won't be happy in anyway. My husband is supportive... to an extent. He feels that he is a "support system" to me by reminding me constantly that I am trying to lose weight... his "reminders" lately have been doing just the opposite. Instead of him helping me, I feel like a disappointment to him everytime that I eat something bad and I think his comments drive me to emotional eating instead of motivation... I need to hear from people who know what I'm going through, he doesn't. Unlike a lot of obese people, I work out at a gym religiously a minimum of twice a week. And, with a trainer. I also feel like I'm letting her down because she has done her part over the past year and whipped me into shape but, I've not upheld my end of the deal with my diet. I'm sick of feeling like I'm letting everyone down, including myself and my daughters. I NEED for something to change. Anyone have any advice?!?
