I feel like I'm at a standstill. Things were going so well and then all of a sudden I started moving backwards. My eating took a turn for the worse and I haven't been exercising as regularly as I had been. I think my hubby really has a lot to do with it. I told him I think he's a bad influence because he isn't as serious about losing as I am. I just need to dig deep and suck it up. My 5 month old turned into a pig overnight so I am no longer nursing....I have no excuse to consume the extra calories so I just really need to buckle down and get back with the program. The past few weeks have been soooo rough. There's just temptation everywhere and I haven't been able to resist. I think it's more mental than anything so I definitely have to get my mind right. Guess I just needed to vent...................[sigh]

    We're in the same boat! My husband is the same way, and if I'm honest with myself, I can definitely say that I let his bad habits alter my better judgment at times. But I'm realizing more and more that I have to do this for ME! And that I can't hold anyone else responsible for changing me! So it's a daily battle, but every day gets easier when it comes to resisting the cookies and the ice cream that's brought into the house (on a regular basis). I refuse to buy them anymore, so that was an accomplishment for me. But you just have to get your mind back to where it was when you were excited about this journey and look at the bigger picture of why you're doing this! To get healthy, set a good example for your kids, etc. You can do this girl!

    It is just a phase -- not his, but yours. I know b/c I have been/am exactly where you are. I finally had to come to terms with the fact that I was using my husband's unwillingness to change as my personal excuse not to change. I finally had to realize (this only happened about a month or so ago) that regardless of what he did, I had to give myself a better life. Now, it is certainly hard living with someone who does not share your same conviction, but that is why you are together -- you compliment each other! I had to suck it up and fry my husband chicken while I baked my own. I had to go to the grocery store and buy his favorite snacks while I bought fruit for myself. What I found was that I had to love him where he was cause guess what -- he loved me where I was from 150 lb to 220 lbs and everywhere in between. Now, he is looking at my food and asking if he can taste it. Most of the time, he likes it and wants me to cook it again. I know that in no time, he will see the light and join me in living a healthy lifestyle. Until then, I have still got to win this round for MYSELF! And so do you.... emoticon

    My husband is skinny and therefore can and does eat all of that bad stuff. I do fine as long as I don't see it or no where it is, so he hides food. I feel crazy that he has to hide it or I will eat it. I have NO self-control when it comes to certain foods.

    My fiance was the same way...he says he wants to lose weight, but then he never works out and eats like crap, which is hard for me to watch and be around because I easily give into temptation too. I finally sat him down and told him how I was feeling, and now we go to the gym together (we don't work out together, but we go together).

    Just talk to him...gently...hopefully he'll understand how important it is for you to get your health under control.
