Argument About Health & Diet With Hubby

Monday, January 04, 2021

My husband is complete meat and starch kind of guy. I think the only thing that he does eat is Spinach. We try to save money as much as we can. We don't make a lot so we are always trying to make it stretch as far as it can go. That usually means buying the fattiest and most least expensive items in the store. We also usually only buy enough food for one meal a day.

Our stimulus check showed up in our bank account and I spent two hundred dollars on groceries. This would make sure that I have something to eat for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I believe that I'm not losing the weight that I need to lose because other than what I have posted we have been surviving on one meal a day. That could be anywhere between 300 calories and 700 calories depending on how much pasta, rice, or potatoes we are eating.

I just got fed up with being hungry all day and not losing the 200 lbs that I need to lose. A two hundred pound weight loss would take me down to 180. I'm active now but I was very active at that weight earlier in life. I literally told him that I'll move into the homeless shelter if he doesn't allow me to buy healthier foods. That he's actually allowing my body to become unhealthy and is promoting the pain that I feel in my legs and feet because of the foods that I eat.

I really didn't mean to give him a guilt trip. I think I really pissed him off when I said that it was a form of spousal abuse and neglect. I did say it out of anger but there was some truth behind it. I love my husband very much. He works very hard and very long hours to help provide for this family. He has gone without so that I could have something to eat when we were homeless. There is a negative side. He's also the one that has brought home surprises like soda when I said no more soda. He's brought home chips and crackers when I've told him that they raise my blood sugar.

I just hope that he comes home calm tonight. It's not like we had any bills to pay other than to buy groceries. I know we are trying to move to a new city and start new lives. The two hundred dollars could have been used for plane tickets. How great of a life will we have if Diabetes takes over my body?

    Is there a local food bank or pantry where healthier foods are on offer?

    On Youtube listen to Robert Cywes M.D The Carb Addict Doc. I've learned from him.

    In my town, junk food is also cheaper than fruit and vegetables. I hope the two of you can be on same page and make a strong team
