The people we love
Tuesday, August 31, 2010
I love my boyfriend. He is my "partner" in crime. We have been together for almost 7 years and have two children. I hate to blame my weight on anyone else so I'm not going to even try to pass the buck on him. No one tied me up and forced me to eat and not exercise. Just what do you do when the people you love are even more inactive than you are and have no concern about their eating habits? I've tried to tell him all the things he's eating that are not good for him. I've tried giving him a smaller portion and even a smaller plate in the hopes that he wouldn't notice. I feel like I'm his mother more than his girlfriend and I hate that. Nothing has worked so I just came to the conclusion that I can't make him change. He has to do that for himself. His bad habits however affect me. It's kind of hard to keep focused on my goals when he brings home french toast from IHOP. I know that he loves me but these things aren't helping.
