My Husband , my friend ?

Saturday, February 16, 2013

I know my husband is my friend but when it comes to weight loss, I need a new friend...He has always been against my weight loss efforts. I would go on a diet and he would go out and buy danish, donuts and cake..I am going to learn how to handle him and then maybe I can lose this weight..If I stress about it I will gain in the tummy, and guess how I know ? I need to relax and think about this and what I can do about it..Gonna be working on it !

    I have the same problem! While my husband doesn't go out and buy danishes and cookies he is definitely not supportive with the healthier meals. Neither are my children. When I make something healthy and ask how it is, my husband usually responds with "It's not my favorite". That is if he's not irritated because the children aren't eating it. I typically feel pressured to make recipes that are child pleasing instead of healthy.

    Maybe if you don't talk to him about dieting he won't try to sabatoge you?
Some men are also afraid when women diet they won't get to eat their favorite foods any more! They think they will be somewhat forced to do without mashed potatos & gravy or foods that they are used too!
One trick I used on mine is to fix my mashed potatoes with half mashed cauliflower & serve a tasty low fat gravy! No complaints. I've also snuck in veggie crumbles to chili & tacos. He never even knew!
Yes, we need to really love ourselves enough to put our health first.
All the best.

    I know it seems selfish but you have to look out for yourself first or you won't be able to take care of others either. Stick with it.
