Where's the support??

Thursday, August 20, 2009

I honostly feel like I've been on my own here at home!! My husband and I are really on the fritz and it's driving me crazy!! I've been doing pretty good with my workouts this week, but I've been sleeping really late since my mom has the boys! Today I didn't even get up till 9:30 and then I had to go grocery shopping and get the house picked up. So needless to say I haven't had a chance yet to get my workout in, but isn't running around wal mart for hours enough cardio?? Plus lifting all those bags and putting groceries away a good strength training session?? (I know I'm kidding!!)
I just don't feel motivated. I'm eating great and still trying out new healthy recipes. That's not the problem! It's just I feel that I need more support and understanding from him!! I'm having a hard time as it is trying to find a medicine that will work for me and keep me happy. Isn't that what a spouse is for?? To be there for you no matter what? To support you even if they think what you're doing isn't right? To be on your side and pick you up when you find out that you're wrong?? But I must admit that I'm pretty proud of myself because I haven't resorted to eating that cookie dough icecream in my fridge because I'm upset! Before I would have eaten all of that and then some!!!

    I went though this with my husband after my 2nd daughter. It was hard for him to realize the hormone issues and my imbalances after having kids. I felt like he didnt care what I was doing or it didnt measure up to anything, but then I found a good med for me for the PPD and he saw that I was doing a measurable amount of things throughout the day whether it was for myself and loosing weight, or for our family.
    He finally wised up and we started to talk a lot more about it. Without accusing each other of not doing enough. Whatever the topic might of been.

    Sometimes all it takes is open dialogue or written lists of what each other does, to show the other what is accomplished. You're right that is what a spouse is there for.. but they have to know how youre feeling to support you the right way. :) Its hard work but eventually comes together with good communication!

    Hey wtg on not eating out of the freezer! I was the same way and now have some how tame those cravings! its hard work! So be proud of that that!

    First of all you should be DAMN proud that you are overcoming your stress eating! It's always comforting to have the support of one's Spouse. However, he MIGHT be going through his own "thing" too. OR maybe he's getting "green eyes" that you are so focused and determined with you diet. Either he could be thinking that you're going to leave him and the twins.....OR......he wants to loose weight and get healthy too and doesn't know how to go about starting. It sounds cheese BUT open dialogue works! emoticon
