It really is true, i am committed...but i am ready, and i know they will come, the days that i feel like giving up like "my goal is too far away, why even continue?" So i will be looking for you nice gals to keep me going. As for encouragment from my family, my dad has always wanted me to be thinner...thats just the way he is. But i just never did it. I guess i was too young...i didnt want to ruin my metabolism. Encouragement from my mother? this is wierd...my mom is a dietician...she knows the good and the bads...but she also never brought her job home. She too wants me to be healthier but never pushed me...I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN A BIG GIRL...since i was young...i have never been thin. I guess...i have some encouragment...because i know they do want me to lose the extra pounds...but when we go out...the fact that i am on a diet never crosses their mind...I think if i didnt have the self control...in ordering the right foods...it would be extremely difficult to keep the diet going. Like tonight...we went shopping and they wanted to stop at our favorite chinese...it kind of made me mad because "HELLO!!" i am on a diet....i know its kind of selfish...but i have told them "if you're going to eat let me know...so i could stay home" and they still dont tell me. Anyway, i ended up ordering steamed vegies...made sure no butter and no salt. And they did...and i was okay and i overcame. I rather not eat something if i know i will be guilty later. Anyway, thanks for your comments...i like that i could actually vent...thanks
