elderwanda-you can't compare yourself to anyone else. What matters is making today just a little better than yesterday. All the "little" things add up over time. Yeah, life can beat you down sometimes, but how you handle it is up to you. Maybe you can't get to the gym, but you can choose to not eat at the drive thru. And yeah, I'd probably be a lot thinner without the husband and kids. But I don't have to accept being fat because I'm busy. I get up at 5 am to get to work on time and I don't get to stop until 10:30 pm, so exercise on a workday doesn't happen. And I can't get anything done when the 2 year old is up. So my progress is slower, but it's still progress.
If I keep starting over, eventually it will stick, right?
