So I blogged yesterday about my weight loss...my husband has been working so I haven't shared my win with him...so here we are, on his day off, and I'm reluctant to share with him. I feel that all these years of weight gain with a few weight losses (never more than 8 lbs lost) make my 4 lb loss not something to share with him yet.

What am I afraid of? Why don't I want to share?

I feel, like I'll be setting myself up for failure...sharing has never helped me stay focused on my health in the past, why would it now? I just want to keep going with my fitness.

Not telling him is part of breaking my weight loss weight gain cycle. I will share here and another website, with complete strangers...but I will wait until he can see the changes then I will tell him how much...some people will likely disagree, but I feel my reluctance isn't unhealthy but is the right thing for me right now.

So, in other news....I will be walking outside with my husband and my dog today...I'm sore so may take a break from Zuzka and Blogilates for the day, I don't want to overdo it and get injured!

Thanks for listening! Have a fantastic day! Xoxo

    You will tell him when you feel like it. I understand the feeling that you have done it before and then it stops. You are doing this for yourself, so you are the one that will get to be excited every time that scale drops, and I hope you get LOTS of excitement!

    Congratulations on the loss so far, I'm sure there is lots more to come.

    Don't stress not telling him, I didn't tell mine either, he came up to me one day and said "why do you look smaller?" and rubbed my arm/shoulder. It felt GREAT!!!
    Just wait for it, it will happen to you too - what a great reinforcement of good behavior!

    Nothing wrong with changing your pattern. You're doing great. It's normal to fear the slide back, but if/when you do (slide back) you just get back on the horse you rode in on & go back in the right direction!

    I haven't told my husband about my weight loss either. Guess I want him to notice. That could take a while..... ; ) Guess in the long run I'm doing it for me and I don't care what other people think right now. Good luck to you!
