it is alright. I still dont think he fully gets how i feel about him in this journey. I still havent gotten my punching bag that i really want. he is trying to eat healthier and willing to try new recipes that are healthier. he says that once the junk food in our house gets eaten up then we can start buying more healthy food!
I don't know what to say. You can't force someone to do something, especially if they don't want to do it. Just do the best you can. I find it interesting that his family supports you but he doesn't...

Wow..I also work full time, go to school and 3 kids..I have to help them with homework..but my hubby does help out..I cook during the week and he has the weekends...when I clean my house I turn it into a workout for me and it seems to help..I do most of my cleaning during the night when everyone is in the bed..sometimes I also cook meals ahead of time so that way I only have to take out of fridge and warm it up..I use to do like an hour or so workout..but now that the kids are back in school and so am I..I only workout for 30minutes a day..but I have also learned that just doing maybe 5 or 10 minutes a day also work..every little bit helps..when I go out to get dinner and they don't have weight watchers or low calories meals..I just simply eat small portions and what's left bring home for another day..sometimes you can ask them to leave the butter off or add mustard instead of mayo..I hope you get the idea..but whatever you do please don't give up..know that you are making this lifestyle change for yourself..wishing you all the best with your weight loss journey..and remember we are all here to support one another!

Not for sure really what to say. If you have talked with him you might write down some of the guidelines to show him and keep a journal as well and when he goes to get mad about certain things pull out your journal and show him what happened. I also am a mom of a two year old but also a stay at home mom as well. I also have two other kids as well who are 10 and 11 and constantly having school work and activities as well. My hubby does not pick up like he should sometimes and neither do the kids and yes some days I do explode with 5 people on the house and me being the only one who picks things up but after I say something it usually gets better for a few days then it goes back. I just learn to deal with it that way some days and when they start complaining then I point out to them what of the mess they created and tell them to clean it up. As for the snacks put them in a place where he can't find them so he can't eat them all. I have problems in that area because he wants to eat the snacks I buy for my kids to take in their lunches and then they have nothing left. I have scolded him so much in the past few years with the older two he has gotten where he ask first now so that might just have to take time. Good luck and hope things improve for you.

Ok im asking for help from both men and women!! I went back to college last year only part time as I am still working full time and I have a 2 yr old at home. I am very stressed with everything on my plate and my husband doesnt seem to want to help. He doesnt clean, doenst help with our daughter, and doesnt support my weight loss journey. How do I get him to help out around the house more and with our daughter? I am trying to potty train her but i cant do it alone and I cant get him to help with that either. I dont have time to clean so my house is always messy and he doesnt seem to care. When it comes to me losing weight I feel like hes trying to sabatoge me. Everyweek its lets go out to dinner and he picks places that have nothing healthy to eat. We went to a bar that only served bbq once i had to order a grilled cheese and sweet potatoe fries bc that was the healthies thing on the menu. He wont go on walks with me but gets mad when I do. Always eats all my healthy food I buy then gets mad at me when I get mad when its all gone. I am happy him and my daughter are eating healthy but save some for me! Ive been wanting a punching bag for a year and his dad (my father in law) said I could have $300 to spend for my bday this past month and I wanted to buy that. I think it would be like $100 by the time I buy that bag, the gloves, and shipping. I was also going to buy gloves for our daughter since I know if mommy is doing it she would want to but he said no we have no rooom for it even though i was ok with it being in the garage. I have talked to him and he says he will help out more and hes not trying to sabatoge my weight loss. But he doesnt and it still feels like he is. What do I do. His family supports me in everything i am doing and tells him he needs to help out more and he doesnt listen to them either! HELP!!
