Every time I go on a diet, he sabotages me. When I tried Weight Watchers years ago, after my weekly meetings, he insisted we go out to a restaurant / bar for fried foods. Before I joined WWs, we hardly went out to eat. It took my one full year to lose 40 lbs...
I gained it all back and then some after becoming very sick which required major surgery and rehabilitation.
I tried WW again and ended up gaining several pounds in one month...so I gave up. I left the meeting in tears. My husband sabotaged me by purchasing cookies, ice cream, etc... I complained to him but he insists that he did not "feed me"...I was the one who put that cookie to my mouth. I told him all about temptations. He didn't buy it.
So this time, I kept my mouth shut. I lost 18 pounds in 100 days!
But today after I walked 5 miles, I came home and my husband said to me that I am either really liking my walks or that I am trying to lose weight. I asked if he noticed any weight loss but he evaded my question. In actuality, I gained 18 lbs since last year due to full time grad school, internship, work, and writing insane amount of papers. My family hardly saw me and probably didn't see my excessive weight gain. Plus most of the weight gain was during winters months and I was in sweats or pjs with a laptop on my lap. And now that I lost those 18 lbs, I am in my last year's summer clothes. So I don't really expect him to notice.
Well, I guess it is a wait and see what he brings home from the store...his part time job is working at a large grocery store...
