Obstacles

Wednesday, May 15, 2013

I have been feeling really down lately. Not really sure why because I am going above my expectations for weight loss. I have been exercising and eating healthy on a regular basis. I know my husband is not cheering me on because he doesn't think that I need to loose weight. I am 90 pounds overweight so there is nothing that I am seeing that he is not. I think he has bigger issues than me losing weight but oh well. I am doing this for myself and my children. On my side of the family there are all kinds of medical issues that can be associated with weight. I have just been lucky this far that I am at perfect health other than being extremely obese. I do not want to have an unhealthy lifestyle anymore before the problems come.
We are going on vacation next month which I should be looking forward to but I don't know how it's going to work. I love my husband with everything that I have. He provides for all 6 of us. He works full time out of the home at least 60 hours a week so we can have all our needs met. Plus we even are lucky enough to have all our wants met. Many people can't do that anymore and I should be grateful for him. But I have noticed that in the past few weeks since he is not supporting me with my new lifestyle that I am extremely irritated with him all the time. I don't know what to do! For once in my life I am lost for words. emoticon

    It is a difficult issue to deal with. In the end, you just have to accept people as they are, and while your husband might not be actively supporting you, at least he isn't sabbotaging your efforts. Just take every day as it comes and try not to stress about it and take comfort in how far you have come and have stuck to your plans. emoticon emoticon

    I can see that's a struggle. I don't don't know why he's not supporting you. Sometimes en don't because they themselves don't want to make changes. Or they feel insecure, and if you look great think other guys will notice.

    My sis lost that much weight. She went from 22-24 to 8-10. She has energy for her 9 year old daughter and adult sons. She feels great, and doesn't have to worry about all those bad health side effects of being obese.

    If it would help him see the impact, I can give you her website on Spark through my Spark Mail emoticon
