Juicing Woes

Wednesday, November 13, 2013

Not my juicing woes, my husband who is bout to break my Bullet if he doesnt get a juicer soon. He has been on the liqid diet since Friday. We have seen some mood swings. He (gasp) drank alcohol on Day3 when he went to watch the football game. That seemed like a stupid idea, but hey not my liver. I never did order the phone. I was put out for 2 days. Then he started this juicing thing and now its all about him. Whatever. I know - this is the place to be positive, but its so dam hard! I feel like he is always against me! Wow that sure sounds self centered....moving on....

I had the day off work yesterday for the holiday so spent the day with the girl. We had a nice lazy day. I guess the yardsale of Sat went well, it seemed like we didnt do that much business but I hope we made decent money.

I did my c25k on Sat eve after a nap after the big yard sale day. I also did yesterday. Im on a roll! Iv also been watching my eating better. After DH came home form the Game, he laid into me about all the crap he sees me feeding our daughter and basically chewed me out.anyone ever see the episode of the Spimpsons where Homer goes on an apple diet and joins a gym? Oh man I cant get it out of my head. I was thoughtly ticked off and stood up to him. Not like it really changed anything but hey. I tried.

    Thanks guys for all your kind comments and overlooking my serious typos, I was trying to get this finished late last night and didnt have the light on emoticon

    I am super concerned about this sabotage behavior because the flak i was getting was that she wanted packaged macaroni and cheese one night, which I usually dont even keep on hand, much less make often, and some fast food, a bagel for breakfast. he said' a bagel isnt healthy, its just filler'. Well yeah I get that its not something you want to eat EVERY day, but seriously? We had a super busy week last week, and I usually cook every nite for dinner, she takes lunch to school EVERY day, and I feed her breakfast everyday. yeah its sometimes cereal and milk, I dont actually COOK her breakfast, instant oatmeal you get the jist, Im a typical American MOM, trying to feed her family decent and keep a full time job and keep the house. Its not like he EVER cooks dinner, in fact Iv had some times in the last month where I had to do something after work not gotten home til after 6, and then STILL have to cook dinner. Sorry for the rant, but yes he is just a jerk sometimes. emoticon

    I am happy to hear that you are doing well with your eating habits and your C25K!

    I am sorry to hear about the DH though. I agree with the comments below regarding the long term effects of the "diet" and when he starts to eat again...and the thoughts on sabotage...It doesn't seem like he is much of a support system for your efforts in weight loss...maybe other things too. I'm sorry. Do you have anyone in your life you can look to for support in this area? I know that you have your Spark Friends, but sometimes it helps to have a person PHYSICALLY there for you.

    I am pulling for your success! Wishing you the best!

    I'm not a big beleiver in these juicing diets, i do realise that people can lose a lot of weight fast on them, but i beleive that they are artificial losses, for most people will use the juice diet for a week or two lose 5-10 pounds Rave about how great they've done, start eating normally again and gain it all back over the next few months. These "diets" do nothing to help you change your natural eating habits. I think Cipher might be right, he might be attempting to give himself a large weight lose so he can then say "Look how well i'm doing, how come you aren't doing as well?"

    What he says about your daughters food, i don't know what to say cause i don't know what your'e feeding her, but i have noticed with lots of other people, that they start following a healthy plan themselves, but the rest of the family continues to eat following the old unhealthy standards, If that's what is going on in your house maybe it is time to think about making a lifestyle change in the household, rather than calling this a diet for yourself. (just based on the comment you made, he might just be being an ass saying stuff like that.)

    And don't let him compare his weight loss to yours, there's not much chance that you tow have identical builds to start with, and you're not following the same plan. Let him sabotage himself howevr he wants to but don't let him sabotage your progress.

    emoticon I always think here is about being true to yourself and being positive when you meet 'visit' other people's pages. You never have to be positive in a blog, otherwise you will never sort out the issues which help lead to you gaining weight.

    At the risk of talking out of turn I am going to offer some advice, sort of - your hubby may be a diet saboteur, my husband is, how does he feel about you losing weight, does that link into his insecurities, is he worried that you will 'run off' if you become all slender. I am just wondering because his behaviour does seem quite negative, and switching it to all about him may be about dealing with his insecurities. Not sure I have anything else to add, but I hope that helps.

    Have a good day
