DH is not being supportive at all of what I'm trying to do for myself! Pushing myself to exercise when I'd rather curl up with a good book, cooking healthier meals, drinking more water & less coffee. He told me I should just accept the fact that I'm "built like my mother" and learn to live with it! Don't get me wrong! He loves the healthier meals, but only because I cook enough for him to raid the refridgerator after I've gone to bed at night (he doesn't think about that food as left overs I have planned for another meal) Before I made so many prepared foods that there wasn't anything left over.
I admit, I AM built like my mother! But that doesn't mean that it has to stay that way. I love my mother dearly, and I've spoken to her about the changes I'm making. I have her support 100%. She tells me to do it NOW! She was so happy when I broke the 200 mark, and told me to make sure I never let myself get back that high. She now deals with High Blood Pressure, Under active thyroid and Diabetes. She knows that lifestyle is more to blame for it than heredity.
DH on the other hand, eats anything he wants and doesn't have to worry about gaining weight. At his heaviest, his pants had a 34" waist (and that only lasted about 4 months and he was right back into the 32's he has worn most of his adult life. So he figures that everyone should just eat what they want and they will be the size they are meant to be!
So I'll tell myself (over and over again)
I AM STRONG!!!
I AM DETERMINED!!!
I AM SUCCESSFUL!!!
I'll show him!
