Having a little pity party.

Friday, April 13, 2012

Today a package arrived in the mail. It seems my husband had ordered a tummy tuck belt to HELP me lost weight. I didn't realize it bothered him that much but I am going to lose -- hopefully 27 pounds by July 13th. The dumb thing hurts but I'll use it until the weight is gone. I don't think it helps. The eating less and exercising more will do the trick. I could have done it on by own but I didn't realize it was an issue. On well, I can do anything -- not eating and exercising are easy when I am this angry. I don't think he realizes that my weight and my body shape are touchy subjects that he should leave alone. His HELP only upsets me. I think I will starve until I get sick -- that should make him sorry he pushed me.

    Men are very dumb sometimes. I think they mean well, but then they do stuff like this. I went through something similar recently.

    I know exactly what you mean and yes, men can be so clueless sometimes.

My hubby will sit on the couch and open a bag of my favorite chips and not let me have any when I ask for one. I ask for one because one will satisfy my craving-I know you are going to say I won't stop at one - but I do because he is there- that helps. But what he does not realize is that him denying me the one chip that I want to satisfy my craving makes my craving worse and I find myself plotting for when he leaves the room or puts the bag away and how I am going to sneak what he told me I couldn't have :) and when I sneak...I have more than one...

He thinks he is helping but he is not.

Just remember that in his mind he was helping. Maybe you should explain that while you appreciate his help that maybe next time he talk to you first...or maybe you should just set out boundaries surrounding your weight tell him your weight for you is a sore spot so maybe it is best not to bring it up? His silent support is probably what you need right now - men are good at silent!

    Men are very dumb sometimes. They think they are being helpful when they aren't. Ignore hubby and don't let it upset it. emoticon

    Do NOT starve yourself! It will only mess with your metabolism. Go ahead and be angry with him because he is an insensitive a$$. Use your anger to push your workout and loose the weight. Soon you will be a hottie and he will be chasing you around the house!
Then make him beg forgiveness. LOL emoticon
