My Husband is Joining My Journey

Thursday, January 05, 2012

For the first time since I started my weight loss journey, I am feeling like I could be 100% successful! My husband, who has always been my cheerleader, has finally decided to get off the sideline and join the team! He quit drinking alcohol as of Jan. 1st. He's "trying" to make better food choices, even when traveling for work and he wants us to buy two bikes so we can start exercising together! I know that success comes from within, but any of you that live with someone who tells you they support you while bringing home high fat take out w/dessert knows it's not that easy. My husband is 80-100 lbs overweight. He has been diagnosed with diabetes and his triglycerides are over 500. I've tried to get him to work out with me, eat better and lay off the alcohol but he wasn't ready. The doctor has told him it's a matter of life or death, now he's ready. I wish it didn't take so long, but I am grateful he's seen the light. I feel more positive about reaching my own goals now because he will no longer be such a huge obstacle to overcome. Please put us both in your prayers as we embark on this journey together. Thank you in advance and blessings to you as your journey continues!
