I joined a gym and started dieting without telling or asking my husband first. I was worried that he would try to sabotage my efforts. But what a surprise. He supports me. He makes sure to give me the time to go to the gym. He does not make verbal comments that are negative. He has started a
diet now too. He has lost 14 lbs to my 4 lbs. Oh well, I encourage him now too. He keeps asking about the gym, so who knows. I may get a gym partner out of this too.220
