I think it is such a private matter, yet everyone can relate to dieting.
That is tough about an unsupportive hubby - maybe my story (in reverse!) will shed some light:
My hubby actually started losing weight and getting fit about 6 months ago and I was the one holding out. I just wasn't ready for some reason. I had a million reasons but nothing moved me. When I was accepted into the nursing program and realized that I would need to get a complete physical and have energy, I came around and hubby turned me on to Spark.
I actually found myself sabotaging my hubby because I felt guilty for not joining him. But he is patient and has thick skin and let it roll off him and never got on me about my own lack of motivation. He is a smart guy, he knows that there is nothing he can say to motivate me. That has to come from within. But when I saw his energy level go up and he started looking good - not just physically but that little inner glow, I was like - I WANT SOME OF THAT!
So back to the support thing, I guess there is a little fear of failure at the root of my not sharing, to care so much what other people think and say. I am aware and working on that in myself, for sure, but for now, my intuition is telling me that Spark alone is plenty of motivation for me!
So thanks for all of your support it means a lot to me!
