I agree with Tonya. Focus on the elements that you have control over- and that's you! I know it's frustrating, but you have to focus on what's best for you and the baby you are carrying. As much as we'd like to change our men sometimes, it's up to them to make that decision. Hope this helps!

Good luck!

I understand where you are coming from. The only thing that is going to work is for YOU to make the better choices. That is the fight. You can't control what your husband does. Its so much harder when your spouse isnt on bored with a healthy lifestyle change, trust me, i know lol! but, I know you can do it girl. Be strong. and congrats on your coming baby!

Hello, I am a young mom 25 of three young children (5, 3, 1) pregnant with number 4. My husband is older and was unfit when I met him. I have tried really hard and have lost almost 60 lbs. I want the world for my children. I really want a healthy active lifestyle for my family. I have changed some of our eating habits which help. I know if I don't buy it my kids won't eat it but my husband has been getting back into buying junk and now that I am pregnant it is so hard for me to resist the junk food. Also I have tried forever to get an active lifestyle but it seems to fail because I try to get the kids out and it seems the fight to get everyone ready doesn't work and I am tired of fighting to get them out. When my husband comes home from work he is tired and only wants to be on the computer and watch tv. Most nights he starts a program at 10 then falls asleep to it and I end up staying up watching it. I am at the point I want nothing to do with the tv or computer but it seems I can never get out of the house with my sanity. I feel like the last 6 years of my life has been cleaning, cooking and taking care of the kids (which I do love, and wouldn't trade for the world). I just feel that life is passing me by.
