Frustrated with DH
Thursday, February 12, 2009
I am frustrated with DH. I don't think he is taking this weight loss thing seriously enough. I have lost 13 pounds, or 7.07% of my body weight. He lost 12, or 3.12%. He weighed in at 384 when we started, and I thought he really had the potential to pull the big numbers in the beginning. He eats the right stuff (well, mostly) but just too much of it. He had a sandwich for lunch that consisted of four thick slices of my home made whole wheat bread (recipe available upon request) loaded with roasted chicken breast, capocolla (some kind of Italian cold cuts) and cheese. Lovely, but not exactly diet friendly in those quantities. Last night he gorged himself on peanut M&Ms and when we went grocery shopping yesterday he wanted to get Pringles chips. He decided against it when he saw my shocked face but then sulked about that for an hour afterward.
I am not saying anything to him about it. I hold my tongue, and try to keep from banging my head against the wall in frustration at his choices. He is dangerously overweight. To the point that I fear for strokes or heart attacks whenever he does anything that even remotely resembles exercise. He needs to start taking this seriously, but I don't think he has a clue as to how big he really is. I know I can only change myself, I can only try to lead by example. He has to see the light himself. And maybe I am expecting too much. But right now I am just really really frustrated with him.
