I began writing this awhile ago as yet another whine about living with someone who doesn’t share our healthy lifestyle goals. I’m referring of course to my 45 year marriage to the junk food king. Then he had a physical, his first in 3 years. His numbers are not horrible, but not the direction you want to be heading at age 68.
My original point was that all we can do is model healthy behavior and hang out here for support when those around us don't provide it.
However, sometimes an outside push or wake-up call is helpful. Without saying anything to me, I notice DH making some subtle changes. I spied him getting on the scale. Hmm.
A few weeks ago I wrote that he actually gave away a package of cupcakes. Just this week I found him reading my book “Eat This not That.” He even commented on the calorie/nutrition content of a “Bloomin Onion.”
Perhaps, this is the start of a long term trend? Or maybe it’s just some early damage control for our upcoming cruise. Either way, it’s a welcome change of direction.
