Let me first say, it is so frustrating to not have family support in your weight loss/exercise endeavors. All I have is my husband. He’s the only one who understands.
I am visiting family in New England and am overwhelmed with negative comments and uncomfortable silence when I talk about exercise or dieting. It’s driving me absolutely crazy.
I’m a runner. I’m on a weight loss mission. These two things consume most of my thoughts and a lot of time. Of course I am going to talk about it. I will succeed, despite your best attempts to thwart my progress toward healthy.
No one in my family seems to understand that I am still borderline obese. That I am getting healthy to send a positive message to my future children. That I want to live a long, healthy life. That I am happy running, eating healthy, losing weight….that this is the new me.
That I will never go back.
PS-It’s freaking freezing here. I will never move to New England unless we are forced by God’s hand. Expensive, cold, snooty, unfriendly…
On today’s agenda: 5 mi treadmill run
Have a nice New Years Day!
