I am 33 years old, divorced, and have a 5 yr old daughter. We live in Louisiana. I met my boyfriend over a year ago when I was on a girls trip in Colorado. He was on a fishing trip with some buddies in the same little town. We immediately had a connection with each other that was undescribable. We started talking on a daily basis about a week or two after that and saw each other again for the first time a few months later. We have been dating ever since (for about 10 months now). We have an awesome relationship. We love each other very much and both think that we are perfect for each other. We connect on every level and have maintained a healthy long distance relationship between Colorado and Louisiana. We have talked about how we would love to be able to spend our lives together and have a family and how great that would be. The problem is that I can't move there because of my daughter. I have joint custody of her with her father here who is a very important part of her life and he would never allow me to move there with her and I'm not willing to move to Colorado and leave my daughter behind. I love Colorado and would love to live there with him, but I'm not willing to risk my daughter thinking I abandoned her for any man. My boyfriend is single, never married, and has no children. He moved to Colorado about 3 years ago because he loves it there. He is very active and loves the outdoors. He is very happy there and does not want to move here. He was honest from the beginning in telling me that there was pretty much a 0% chance he would ever move but I guess I secretly hoped that someday he would change his mind. We see each other once a month and it is getting to the point where we both realize that we won't be able to be together even though we want to. We are on a dead end road and we both want more than just this long distance relationship and seeing each other once a month. We both know that we'll have to let each other go at some point, but neither one of us has let go yet. I think I'll be the one to let go first because he just says that he will just be happy with whatever time he has left with me. I do too but I'm more depressed than anything else lately thinking about the fact that we can't be together. Part of me wants to just let him go now to get the inevitable over with and another part of me just wants to enjoy the time we do have left together-which is basically when one of us decides we can't do this anymore. Any advice??

I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
