I have been on my change in lifestyle journey for about a year and a half. In that time I've lost 30 lbs, have completely changed the way I eat, and made exercise a part of my life. I turned 40 this year but feel better and healthier than I ever have. I have even dramatically cut down on my drinking.
My husband on the other hand has done nothing to improve his health. He is still overweight, eats terrible, and doesn't exercise at all. I have always been told you can't make someone want to change so I have never really forced my new lifestyle on him. I have been hoping for the last year and a half that he would see the changes in me and want to change himself.
Well.....that hasn't happened and I'm afraid it never will.
Things that I really enjoy, life trying new healthy recipes, bike riding by the river, hiking in the mountains, kayaking on the lake, all of these things I have to do alone. I don't really have any friends that like to do these things either. Luckily, my kids are old enough to do some of these things with me, but even they would rather stay home on their ipods most of the time.
I guess I'm kind of at a crossroad. My marriage has been very rocky for over a year now and I keep hoping things will get better. I have tried really hard to accept my husband for who he is but am afraid I have totally fell out of love with him.....
