Binging is tiring

Saturday, November 05, 2016

The last two weeks have been awful. I have just mindlessly ate and walked around like a zombie. My son is not sleeping the night and my husband has been working 14 days straight. I just kind of gave up. I am putting on weight again and I need a reality check. Things seem to be settling down, minus all the appointments, we have some major onces coming up. Can you say 48 hour in hospital EEG with 4-year-old. My kind of hell.

I know in my heart life is not going to stop, but I will stop my life with all of these bad decisions. I also know I want to set a good example for my kids. My husband is sabotaging the heck out of all of us. He is bringing home so much junk that I have tried to keep out of the house. I talk to him about it but it seems to go in one ear and out the other. I will try again today. He says the catch all "you don't have to eat it", but he also feeds it to the kids. Why does this all have to be so darn hard.

    Maringal there is an assumption in your post that I blame my husband for my bad choices. I do not. However, I have a family that needs mom and dad to both model healthy eating and my husband is feeding the kids all sorts of garbage behind my back. On a positive note we did talk and it went very well.

    You married a man that doesn't support your weight loss. SO, live in the solution and figure out how to be solely responsible for your OWN WELL BEING. Your husband should not have to be. SO go out and buy healthy food and don't eat the crap that he brings home. Blaming on people, places and things about you weight gain only hurts you. They are just excuses. You want to look good, feel good and be healthy? Well, do the work and stop complaining. Best of luck!

    I am so sorry to hear that things are tough. Having a little one who is keeping you up at night (and therefore keeping you sleep deprived) is VERY tough. Sleep deprivation can really make everything else difficult. Hang in there. I agree with KHOLO76 --- take it one meal at a time.

    I'm sorry you are under so much stress. I can't relate, hubby and I don't have kids, but he eats junk food. It is hard when you're on your journey alone. Refuse to be sabotaged, and lead by example. Stay strong, you can do it!

    Life can happen to us. Take it one meal at a time. Just because you ate all the wrong foods for one meal doesn't mean all is lost. Hang in there. You're amazing; you're beautiful; you will get there.
