This article was highlighted on MSN yesterday; the title drew my eyes, made me curious, and I clicked it. Let's be honest, I was trying to find proof that it's all my husband's fault on why I'm fat. Who wants to take personal responsibility for that? Who wants to admit that the only person to blame is themself? It's much easier to blame someone else for a problem you have. Whether it be your husband, your children, that darn pot luck dinner you must attend every month, the media, friends, the parents that never supported you, that pesky waiter who brought out the dessert tray after dinner, whatever.
The last time I checked it was me who decided to eat the entire bag of Reese's Peanut Butter Cups....not my husband! Why should my husband and children be forced not to buy Double Stuffed Oreos because I can't keep my grubby hands out of the bag? At some point I have to take responisbility for my own actions and my own weight issues instead of blaming those I truly care about. This is the part in my weight loss journey where I blame myself. This is also the part that I'm not feeling sorry for myself but taking action!
