The blame game....
Friday, February 29, 2008
I remember when I used to make excuses about WHY I was fat. I was just had a baby, healthy food was too expensive, my family kept me too busy, etc. I always had someone else to BLAME. Now that I'm taking time for ME and exercise, my FAMILY is blaming me. I'm being "selfish" and "not being a "good mom". I have asked my family (daughter, husband, mother) to exercise WITH me, but they say "that's not their thing". Ok, understand...being HEALTHY isn't their "thing", but why give me so much crap about doing it? I am gone for two hours on Monday (Weight Watchers), two nights a week of aerobics in another town, and 4 nights a week at home aerobics (1 hr per night). They are complaining about having to make their own meals, wash their own dishes, I'm not spending enough time with the family, etc. ACK!!!! Do they WANT me to be fat forever? Do they love me so little that I don't matter?
Once the pounds started dropping...so did my support system.
Anyway...had to vent.
