You know I've been thinking about this very subject a lot lately, and I think I understand why I do sabatoge myself so much. When I was little I was very thin, verrry thin, and I was shy. I've always had a social phobia, so I was very intimidated around people. So of course all of these thing together made me a prime target for bullies. I used to get threatened a lot in grade school but when I got heavier the threats stopped. I think that subconsiously I am staying heavy as a kind of protection. Of course knowing that helps, but it doesn't cure the problem, but at least I now have the tools to fight it.

What's stopping me?

Is me!

Lack of will power. I know I want to be beautiful, and thin, and to be able to buy low raise pants without my gut hanging out over and so sometimes I quess I don't want it bad enough to stick to good habits. Or else I'd stick to my plan.

It doesn't help when my dh isn't supportive. And I should clarify that. He thinks it's great that I'm exercising and eating better, but he's the first to suggest pizza for dinner or let's go out to eat, or let's go out and have drinks, or there's a bottle of wine waiting for me when I get home for work etc. And then I give in. Because that's the easy way out.

Stress---that's another biggy. Working 2 jobs, taking care of my family and home is hard work. And there never seems to be enough hours in a day to get it all done and hit the gym for an hour. Then when I do slip up, I'm so mad with myself it's like....well you've done it sense in trying to fix it today. I'll start fresh tomorrow. I've had so many fresh starts I've lost count.

I think those are my..."What's Stopping Me?"
