I can relate to the husbands who love us but unwillingly sabotage our efforts. What do they put in those McDonald's fries anyway? It must be a drug.
I guess our husbands think they're being sweet by bringing home our favorite treats.
I had a heart-to-heart with my DH recently and told him if he wants to make me happy, here's what he can do:
Bring home flowers instead of Oreos. Offer me a foot massage instead of some of your fries. Take me shopping instead of out to dinner on our next date. Ask me if I've done something for myself today instead of telling me about your day. Watch the kids while I exercise instead of asking me to watch TV on the couch.
Hopefully he'll change a little.
There IS no try. There is only do.

I am fortunate to have a husband that is really onboard with my goals. He doesn't care about food that much so whatever I make he usually eats. Of course, he still has regular soda and ice cream in the house, which he does enjoy, but I don't like the soda and the ice cream is just an occasional. My family on the other hand...they like to eat and are always like, "it won't hurt you!" Geez...

"The most important weight loss muscle? YOUR BRAIN. Change your mind, you will change your body."
I think I am the lucky one. DH helped me lose weight last time. He cooked healthy meals for me every night and sometimes packed me a lunch as well and he exercised with me every weekend! And now he is starting to do it again! Totally my hero!!!!!
"Love and Hate are but two horns on the same goat."
My husband can eat whatever but is skinny grrr to him, but he is supportive in the way of helping me with my weights, will watch the kids so i can exercise, plays the wii sports with me but he loves his junk food and coke so it makes it soooo hard for me to stay on track. Goodluck everyone
I hear u sister, my man is the same way. He can eat whatever and still not gain a pound. He trys to tell me as long as your exercising you can eat what i eat in moderation, but as they say losing the fat is going to take 20% exercise and 80% diet, so its all about eating clean as well as exercising daily.
No he is not, I try to be healthy and what does he do, he comes over and askes if i want a bite of a ding dong or whatever is high in fat and sugars and is useless carlories and then before i can say get it away he's like oh ya your on a diet. I'm not on a diet, i'm on a Journey to changing bad habits thank u. He still says its a diet,because I have to watch what i'm eating and he is a fortune one and can eat anything he wants and stays small. So again No my husband is not supportive.
I total hear you....my husband is very supportive...but then he turns around and brings ice cream in the house or buys soda/pop or chips....and its like I asked you not to bring this stuff into the house and you do it anyway...like he did it last night and brought ice cream in....but it was sweet he was like I bought 100 calorie ones so that you can have some too...but I was like you know I asked you not to bring any in and you cant respect the fact that I told you to not bring it in
we are making a little progress though he brought them with him to put in the freezer at his job..so hopefully it will get better and he will stop bringing in stuff
I hope your SO starts being better with it!! good luck
My S.O. encourages me to lose weight (when I broach the subject & say I want to) and then five minutes later is offering me bites of whatever treat he's munching on. He consistently tries to sabotage me (not to be cruel, just because he knows that food cheers me up)...But it makes it sooo tough! He's a twig that couldn't gain a pound if he tried & if I walk by a McDonald's I automatically gain ten pounds....
