Helpful People

I don't understand helpful people. Well, maybe I do - let me explain.

There are a few people in my life who seem to want to sabotauge my efforts at weight loss. People who tell me to 'just accept the way I am', to 'be realistic', or to 'just enjoy life'.

I'm not saying that I can't enjoy life by focussing on my weight. I believe I'm being very realistic. And I DO accept the way I am - and I accept that it has to change. I am big. I am big partly because of a lack of self control, partly because of the way I am made, and partly because I had three babies in four years.

I need to be in control of this.

Maybe I need to say something the next time someone tries to help.
