Medifast Day 121 -- The Finish Line

Friday, November 08, 2013

Yesterday night was rough. I'm still not speaking to my husband even after he tried to talk to me. Now I'm mad for another reason. He almost triggered a binge. That is not cool. I can take the fact that he never believed in me to succeed. And I can't blame him for wanting the old me back sometimes because all he wants is to binge on pizza or Chinese food with me. But to drag out a situation after causing it in the first place knowing I would seek out unhealthy means of coping is crossing the line.

He misses the old me. But the old me is gone. The late night fast food runs are GONE. Those of you with supportive significant others should consider yourself extremely lucky. It's like he wants the girl that eats whatever and can just hang while at the same time look like a damn supermodel.

Men, am I right?

Today I have the day off from work. I am planning to go visit my parents since they will be gone all weekend for the trip I got kicked out of. Can't you just FEEL the love and support I get from everyone around me? Then I have to go by a craft store for supplies. On November 21 a group of coworkers and I are going to the premiere of Catching Fire and we're wearing matching shirts. So I have to put on my Martha Stewart game face on and make a theme shirt.

emoticon Lately I'm just growing more and more restless with Medifast in general. I'm happy with my size and it just doesn't seem worth it anymore. Tomorrow I have the Farmer's Market plans with my friend. She wanted to get brunch at Another Broken Egg. Of course I can't. Maybe I left my solitary land too early.

emoticon Looking at the nutritional menu for that restaurant... ouch! French toast 1270 calories!!!! Somehow even the spinach salad packs 647. emoticon

It's a frustrating time right now.

    I sent my bf a text before I started Medifast that I was going on a diet. I think he took it like most people who say they are going on a diet. That nothing would happen and nothing would change.

He asked me why I wanted to lose weight when I actually came to his house with Medifast meals. Hello! I'm obese!!

He did become supportive. He makes my lean and green meal for me when I am over there. I think he likes that is is relatively easy.

About 2 weeks ago he served me my dinner and said "How is your diet going?" I was immediately thinking "did he think I gained weight?" I knew that wasn't the case since I weigh myself everyday. I said " it is obviously working quite well. I have lost over 30 pounds". I asked him why he asked and he said because I was still doing the diet and he was wondering if I was getting bored.

I am sure that the changes you are making might be making him insecure and sabotaging your diet is his attempt at gaining some control back.

    I do consider myself lucky because my hubby supports my weight loss goals. However at the same time, I think it is near impossible for him to understand how hard it is for me because he is tall & thin, and can eat anything he wants. It is very hard to watch him eat whatever and stick to my goals. I don't think anyone, husbands included, can understand what it's like to "diet" or change your lifestyle unless they have also been through it.

You have worked so hard to get where you are Sofi, to where you feel comfortable with yourself again. Don't give up now. You are so close to your goal. I know it's really hard when you don't have a lot of support from family, but you can do it! You have lots of support here on sparkpeople, we are rooting for you.

I hope you have fun at the market tomorrow....hope you find all kinds of yummy produce there :)

    Medifast seems rough, and to be honest, I think you are amazing for being on it for this long!

Also, your husband might just be feeling insecure. When one person in a relationship loses weight, they have a greater chance at breaking up. I think this is because the person that lost weight, values themselves more, while the other, thinks now I'm going to lose them and starts behaving crazy.

Maybe you need to reassure him that even though you lost the weight, you still are going to be with him. Guys are funny like that. Plus, food is not why you are together, so just because you are changing your habits doesn't mean you are changing the aspects that made you two fall in love with each other.

But what do I know? I don't know everything about you guys, and we only get a little bit of the story. So, if that's not the case, sorry. I just know that this is an issue from articles and stuff I have read. Plus it happened to my neighbor when she got a gastric bypass done.

Hope things look up, and maybe you can talk your friend into not getting brunch. Usually farmer's markets has places to eat, so if SHE gets hungry SHE can get something.

Stay strong, stay positive, and good luck. I am rooting for you!!!

WOOT WOOT! Go Sofi, go Sofi...You ROCK, you RULL!!!!

    I am sorry about your fight and general lack of feeling very supported right now. You have undergone a lot of changes in a short period of time, relatively, and it is probably an adjustment for him, but that isn't an excuse. I hope things turn around for you, soon! emoticon Stick to it, you are almost through it!

    Completely false. You gals fuss over yourselves far more than guys fuss over you. Quite frankly, we're usually just happy to see something naked in front of us. Obviously very overweight or very underweight is a problem, but supermodel ... come on.

    I'm sorry to hear you're not getting the support you need from the people around you! Change is scary sometimes, maybe he's feeling insecure about your relationship because you're accomplishing your goals and he's not sure where he fits in anymore? He should be the biggest cheerleader you have, not an anchor holding you back from your goals. Good luck & remember that you always have your Spark People to support you when you need it, even if it isn't the same as having your loved ones do so!

    My boyfriend tells me I do not need to be doing all of this.
I do not make different meals than I used to, so it has not affected him. He also doesn't listen when I try to talk to him about all this. I do not think my boyfriend has any idea of what all is going on in my head in regards to anything.

I am sorry your husband is not supportive and is not liking the new you. I hope you both can find a way around that.

    It took me a long time to realize that I have to take care of me first. I can't be happy or give anything to anyone else if I don't. You are right in taking care of yourself. You deserve it, especially since those around you don't seem to want to take care of you. If you surround yourself with good, positive people, it's easier to be positive. You can do it!
