Reboot Day 22

Thursday, December 06, 2018

Well, not what I had hoped for emoticon , only lost one pound this week emoticon , but at least it is going in the right direction emoticon . And I have to remember that i wasn't able to do as much these last two weeks like I was but still did enough not to gain weight emoticon.

I was a sadden emoticon last night when my husband and I came to a surprise emoticon . We were checking the meal accounts and just to be sure the kids are spending like they should and put enough money emoticon in their accounts to cover the full school year. Come to find out, our oldest, son, had been double, triple and quadruple dipping in the account and over eating emoticon while at school. My son was in wrestling for the past 3 months and we were hoping it would help his weight issue he is beginning to have and at first he was beginning to lose weight. Then in the middle of it he gained back what he lost and then lost only 2 pounds since. I kept asking him what was going on, I thought maybe stress between school and sports may be hindering his weight loss. But after checking the account, he blew through all the money that should have lasted all year for breakfast and lunch at school. I was sicken emoticon by this. So this morning I told my son he will now need to wake up every morning and make himself a healthy breakfast and lunch every day because I will not be putting any more money onto his account. So he got up ate a bowl of oatmeal emoticon and packed himself a fairly healthy lunch emoticon with snacks to help throughout the day. Then I had to get after my oldest daughter about overeating because she ended up getting seconds and had a HUGE piece of pie emoticon last night for dinner. I knew about the seconds it was small, but the pie, I did not know about. It was sugar free but still doesn't make it ok for such a huge portion. I explained to her that this was not a healthy habit to start and what kind of effects it would have on her. I had to lecture the hubby and tell him that he needs to help these kids and not allow them to get what they want regardless of their pouting emoticon . I just couldn't believe it. I was really having hopes that my little family was taking my example and using it. In front of me they do all the right things, but knowing they are not being truthful when I am not around really hurts and scares me. I am so at a loss right now. I struggle with my own weight and really hoped I didn't have to worry about my family because like I said they showed me something different that I didn't think I needed to worry. But now I have to make special requests with the school to limit my kids spending. Blows me out of the water.

Well this proves that life will never be easy emoticon , but I can't let it stress me out emoticon . I just do what needs to be done and pray for the best. Well thank you for reading my crazy blog for the day. Have a wonderful day.

    Well, here's the thing. First if all, in my opinion, you handled the situation w/your DS exactly right. The consequence (he has to make his own breakfast and lunch) "fits" the error he made.

    As for DD overeating, that's a tough one to handle. Such a fine line there between guiding and them rebelling against that. Wish you much luck.

    The best think you cna do is continue to be agood example. It DOES pay off. My kids are adults (23 and 26) and some of the things I thought they ignored, well, I hear my words coming out of their mouths! So hang in there, you example WILL benefit them.

    Good luck.
