I was reading a blog about obstacles and what I read is very true. Most of the time we are our own obstacles we are what stands in the way of our own success. I realize that the reason I often slip on my diet is my own fault no one is there forceing me to eat the junk I put in my mouth I make that decision for myself. I rationalize it until it seems like it will be ok to eat it. Then after I have finished what ever it may be. I feel bad like I have let myself down. Well I am not going to do that anymore. I am making the decision today not to be my obstacle. I am the one wanting to lose the weight so I will not sabatoge myself anymore. The food is not worth it most of the time it doesn't even really taste that good. Have you ever been eating something and stop to think this is kinda not good. Actually this is kinda bad. I have and I will not do that to myself anymore. healthty food can taste just as good as overly processed junk that is not in anyway shape or form good for our bodies. I am going to put myself first for once in my life. It is time for me to take care of me. Stop putting everyone else before me. I need to make me happy and give myself the things I need to be healthy and happy. For so long I have put everyone else before me. And apparently it has taken going through two devorces from the same man for me to finally realize I have always put everyone elses wants before my own needs. And that is truly sad. But not anymore starting today. I am going to take care of me. (My daughters and Myself are the most important things in my life right now.) It won't always be easy but it will be done.

    I like your detemination as well. sometimes that is all it takes is to realize we are the ones making the bad decisions. We wont' always have perfect days but we can start by putting one foot in front of the other and make as many good decisions through the day as we can.

    You are a strong women to survive 2 divorces from the same man. forgiving as well to actually go back to him the second time around.

    You need to take care of yourself to be able to properly take care of your beautiful daughters.

    Have a great day. Thanks for all your encouragement

    I have often had the thought, "WHY THE HECK AM I EATING THIS?" Most often the reason is, because it's there.

    Two divorces from the same man, you have proven you are a strong woman! You can and will make the best choices for you and your beautiful babies! I can hear the determination in your words.

    You're a Teddy Bear and
