I am not an expert at weightloss but I know what is starting to work for me and let's all celebrate I actually have my husband embracing my weightloss efforts than just say I love you no matter how you look. That is BIG!!! It is making a big difference in the way I am thinking now that I have his support although I am not sure if he is starting to be more supportive because I was not stopping no matter what he said or he seen that I am serious about this weightloss.
We have talked some about this and he said much of the reason he was like that in the past was he had seen his first wife go on a new diet every other week but after a few days kill it or his mother would weigh in at weightwatchers and than after weigh in she would go to dairy queen. I told him that rewarding yourself for weight loss is great and encouraged however I choose not to reward myself with food. I reward myself with a new outfit or something like that. my next reward is going to be an mp3 player so I can listen to my music while walking outside or working out in the house.
I am going to try to blog daily about my efforts and new things that happen with me although my life is not always that exciting. most of the time I work and sleep.
My daughter and I have decided to put $10 in an envelope and whoever loses the most weight in a six month timeframe gets the $20. She doesn't seem as enthuastic about losing weight and I am trying to encourage her because she is young and I want her to be healthy but she still does her own thing. the thing that bothers me is I have noticed recently she has started to get up after everyone else is asleep and she eats. tell tale signs are dishes in the sink or on the table. I've thought about locking the fridge but do I really need to do that? I thought her being told at the age of 23 that she is a borderline diabetic would have scared her but it didn't.
Anyone have any idea's on how I can help her. I would rather see her get the $20 just so that she gets healthy. when I talk to her or try to talk to her about it she gets angry at me. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
