Good Luck on your Surgery:) Hey the butter cookies are almost gone my son likes the jingle bells and all that stuff. M&M were my favorite for a long time OMG I have a good quote today that might help you and me and any one else. I read it on a billboard from a local church " Resisting temptaion? DON'T LEAVE A FORWARDING ADDRESS" How cute is that? Have a really Great Day:) Lori
GREAT JOB on the mile yesterday!!! way to go!!! take it one day at a time.. And I am so happy for your and staying away from the butter cookies.. The M&Ms got me last night.. I couldn't help myself. Treadmill, here I come this afternoon.
THANKS, I really am feeling much better. Yesterday I made it through a mile and Today I will make it to three. You guys are right I am going to look into a gym today and see what is up there I have been thinking about it for a while now. I did not eat one butter cookie yesterday and I won't today either. I have been feeling better and having you guys all of you on my team helps me alot! I have to admit when I signed up I thought to my self I would just try it Sparks People and now I am hooked. I really do get so much more support here than what I ever got a weight watchers. It is nice to really tell myself that my weight loss is for me and not the ones I love. It may benefit them as I am in a good mood when I walk. But, this journey is MINE:) Thanks again Lori
It took me a long time to finally exercise in front of my husband. It turns out, though, that the most convenient time for me to do strength exercises is at night while watching TV. That means hubby is usually there on the couch. At first he looked amused, but now he's gotten used to it.
I still don't do dance aerobics when he's around, though, because I'm totally uncoordinated and liable to trip on him or something!
For a long time my ex boyfriend would make comments about my exercise and the food I ate. Are you allowed this? Are you allowed that? I hated doing anything and most times it made me give up and go back to my old ways. Finally I just didn't tell him anything and I would exercise when he was asleep or in another room. It only takes 15 min 2 x a day which was easy. I cant have anyone watching my every mood. Maybe getting up earlier than him or after he is asleep might help. Dont be down on yourself about not doing anything for a few days. You came here today. Good for you
I can totally understand. I never wanted to exercise with my boyfriend around. I used to try but would get more embarrassed and stop. So, i decided that the best thing for me was to join a gym. I joined the near by YMCA. I have no problem walking on a treadmill in front of little old ladies. And i am kinds of starting to enjoy the time away for ME. He also has the metabolism of a ten year old so when he goes for the ice cream and pop corn and Reeses' peanut better cups and pretzels, and.... at 10 o'clock at night, i get a little jealous and it is hard to say no. But please remember you are going this for you. If you jeans fit better today, then they will get better tomorrow if you stick with it. There will always be road blocks, this is with anything in life. When your husband is eating his ice cream or "watching" you exercise, remember this is a test of your willingness to stick with this. You can do it.. You are better than the butter cookies (or m&m's for me :) YOU CAN DO IT!!!! Jenn

I know how you feel. My hubby doesn't hug my fat rolles but it's really hard to work out with him hone, he wants all me attention like me 3rd kid. After the kids go to bed he will make himself a nice big ice cream shake with oreos and drinks it in front of me and offers me so. Ice cream is my weakness right now and I'm trying not to eat any for a month before I have it again. Even though they can be supportive sometimes it's a little much and you need to get away from them. Good luck and try not to think about him and do it for you.
Hey everyone I have been awol for about 4 days. If I do not walk today it will be my fifth day. I entered my food today and noticed that a lot of my bad habits (mindless) eating are coming back. My husband has been home from work a week on vacation and I hate working out while he is home. I am not sure why, but he stays in the kitchen or he lies on the couch and I just feel like he is watching me. It has been four days and I have not walked with Leslie(Sansone) I was up to 5 miles he knows the tape so if I do not walk 5 and just do 3 he makes a face. I want to scream CommmmOnnnnn! He will hug me and feel my fat roll I hate that. Look I know that I have a fat roll but it is not something that I want to have hugged all the time. I do need to give him credit though he is always supportive of my efforts to lose weight. I am never going to be Bo Derek and I am not constructed to be a twig. I know that he loves me but losing weight and batteling bad habits are hard enough with out some one always watching me. I live in Wisconsin to cold to go out and walk. Soon he will be back to work and I can get on with this. My pants are feeling better and not cutting off my circulation any more. I am making progress and maybe the old me is looking for reasons why I should not feel and look better. I hope that I can get back on track. GOAL for today Walk 3 with Leslie. Thanks and hope that all butter cookies go to HEdouble toothpicks while I figure my self out!!:) Cookies are my weakness Big time(Bad Habit)that I need to ONCE AGAIN BREAK. PEACE TO ALL
