Good morning; I would never had believed this even a year ago- workouts give you more energy. I feel great and am seeing a change in my body shape. I am losing inches all over my body. I used to be obsessed with measurements and scale. But now I just go with how my clothes feel. I started with the gym on a regular basis in June of 2012. I have a neighbor who is only 2 or 3 years older than me. She says to me that you look so good and younger. I have been trying to get her to go to the gym but she does not want too. She really needs the strength training. I look 10 years younger than her. I think it is the work outs. Stress with my family is my nemesis. Right now it is my DH. He is going through the change and it is very hard to deal with him at times. He is so anxious and insecure at times. I am trying to get him to go back to the gym. I had to put my foot down for him to go back to Weight Watchers. He has been gaining weight due to over eating. We have had some good talks, but he is a blamer. He blames every one else but himself for his situation. He needs to get more positive. Right now I am letting go of the situation with DH. I have to work on me and when I get distracted - I lose my program. I have to be careful.
Great that you are losing weight and getting fit. You can not make your husband do anything that he does not want to do and you will have to just weight and pray that he will see that he needs to lose weight. 1599 days ago
That's the ticket. As frustrating as it is, there isn't a way to change another person, just our reactions! That would get me nuts to have a blamer. AS a matter of fact it DID drive me nuts, because my DH was a blamer too. I did have to really work on ME as far as not responding to that type of communication. Slowly (and I do mean S-L-O-W-L-Y) he got the hint that I wasn't going to engage him. Even when my ever lovin' brain would be screaming, I did not engage him.
Oh, don't get me wrong. He can still act like that, but I am lots like you. I find something to occupy me . . . walking, reading . . . whatever!
HUGS my dear. It is a stressor. Hope he gets over it. Oh . . . I had to really reconcile my thoughts and realize that I really DID and still DO love my hubby. Just can't deal with the behavior. 1600 days ago
