I have been thinking alot today about what 'support" means to me in terms of my pursuit of better health. The thought came into my mind as I was driving back from my 1st meeting of the Sister in the LITE biggest Loser Type challenge. I had already dealt with my daughter pouting because she was ready to go to her college bound event. Then when I called my husband I could hear a slight attitude in his voice. I asked him if it was "OK" if Maya(my daughter) and I participate in the Saturday thing. He says of course, it sounds fine to him. However, now that he realizes that it is 12 weeks of me being gone for about 3hours, he is not so happy.
I was disappointed in his attitude, I do not do much stuff for myself outside of the house. This challenge is a great opportunity and I want to be a part of it. I also do not want to feel guilty about taking time.
Anyway.... The Sisters in the LITE challenge meeting went well. They weighed, measures, photographed us, as well as 3 mini lessons on food sizes, sugar content in cereal, and calcium content in foods. The instructor is serious about health and fitness and I like that. My weight there was 220.2# but that was after eating breakfast, and being fully dressed in jeans... Long story but I left my workout pants at home.
