Early Morning

Thursday, May 13, 2010

Morning all,
I went to Dr. yesterday, and yes I gain 4 pounds, not what I want to heard, but not as bad as I was thinking it would be. Everytime I drop the weight my DH bring in more junk food and start telling me I am not eating(or making what he wants). I am starting to heard what he is saying, I am taking care of myself putting myself ahead of him. Finally told him he is right. I am the only one who can, and if I don't he will be alone.
When I get up in morning I stopped making food for myself and waiting for him and this is one of my trigger, I graze all day when I do that. So this morning I got up and made some noise. His comment was how do I expect him to sleep, told him I was taking care of myself and sorry if he wakes up when I move around house, but want to do what is best for me. I was just doing my early morning care. Started to feel upset and went to look for something to clam my nerves. As I was putting something in mouth, though I need to eat better and made small bagel and peanut butter with glass of milk. What I am saying is instead of reacting I took charge of myself and had breakfast wentonto;my computer are started reading here on sprakpeople. I am calmer I need to do this more often. Not react and not put him or myself down, we are who we are.
Feeling a lot saner, like I can handle this day. Thanks all for reading. God Bless and take time for yourself. If you don't who will you have time for. Pat

    that is GREAT!!!! I have heard that sometimes men sabotage their wives diets because they are afraid they will get all slim and trim and then leave them for somene else so maybe he is afraid for you to lose weight.

    You did the right thing by taking care of you. and always always eat breakfast!!!

    Sometimes it is hard to put yourself first, especially when you are doing something our spouse doesn't always agree with.

    My issue is exercise. I have two small children and sometimes I need to just get out and run or walk, but I need support of hubby to watch the kids for me.

    He isn't always willing or available to do that and I get frustrated!!!

    Good for you in keeping positive!

    When you get up in the morning say a prayer and say a positive affirmation about yourself such as "I am worth it because I am God's daughter!" or whatever works for you! God will give you the strength to take care of yourself and also be loving towards your husband. I always say "kill them with kindness!" yet be true to yourself, your goals, your beliefs, and your core values. I know you can do this because you have a whole support system on line and you have Jesus Christ in your heart! Some time during the day, take the time to read the Bible and do a short devotion. It doesn't have to be long @ all - even 5 or 10 minutes to start out is great! There are plenty of free booklets floating around - let me know if you need some suggestions.

    I believe that emoticon ! You are an emoticon and a emoticon woman! I am sending you lots of emoticon !!!!

    Know that I am praying for you and thinking of you. May angels surround you with their love and support! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
    Love, your sister in Christ,

    Your heading in the right direction. I can't imagine what it would be like without the SP. I read blogs, I post blogs, I read all articles and recipes I do so much on this site and it helps soooo much. I love it here.

    My friends would sabotage my diets by offering goodies when we out and for a while I took them. Then I realized this had to stop so I told them if love me you'll let me do this other wise I may not be here to love. They finally saw it my way.

    Hang in There it will get better. Just keep doing what you did this morning. Getting up and going on Spark just to get that extra boost of know how. You Can Do It.

    Good for you, too many times women put themselves last. It will work out in time, and maybe inspire him too to see you progress!

    I understand where you are coming from. My husband is not on board with SP, although he needs to be. I use to eat everything he did, junk food and all. I now get up earlier and eat my breakfast nad then get him whatever he wants when he decides to get up. My hope is that someday he will get with the program, but if he doesn't I'm going to keep on going. hang in there.
