Keeping my eye on the prize

Wednesday, February 13, 2013

This week has been rather discouraging. I did lose about half a pound. I've been so busy this last week that I couldn't really track my nutrition for three days. I didn't do anything horrible. But it wasn't as good as I would have liked either. I don't get a whole lot of support from my husband while he doesn't discourage me from changing. he isn't exactly encouraging.To understand how my husband is you know how they say he's a meat and potatoes kind of guy. My husband doesn't like potatoes. I've told him that we are making changes for everyone across the board not just me. That's the only way I can truly be successful. He says he's all for that. But when I cook new things he's not very optimistic. When he sees something new for dinner he makes weird and sometimes negative comments. So far he's liking most everything I fix. But it those times when he acts so put out that it really gets me discouraged. The other day I really felt like just throwing in the towel. Then I got to thinking what it would feel like to finally reach my weight loss goals and I decided I just couldn't give up. I may have a few bumps in the road. But I can't give up. I've got to do this for myself.

    Sounds like you're on target. Hopefully, your husband will begin to see what you are trying to accomplish and join you on your journey.

    Yes, you are doing this for you, not for anyone else. But do keep your focus, look at all the support you have been giving others here on Spark. Now they will give you the boost you need to keep moving forward.

Maybe you can go over the meal planning with your husband and offer choices like would you like chicken or fish tonight or if you can have him help you in the preparation of meals. And if he doesn't like it tell him to make his own.

You will have other days when you feel like throwing in the towel, but just remember it is just s bump in the road. Think of those days when you felt super happy about what you are doing for you,,,healthier, more energetic...You can do it! emoticon
