1/19/2012- a bit of a rant but mostly a vent

Thursday, January 19, 2012

Normally I list my goals for the day but I just can't bring myself to do it. Heck. I have barely looked at the site since my last post. The problem comes from too much stress and not enough support. I struggle with my eating habits and keeping motivated to do my workouts.

I have tried switching up my workouts. I have tried to follow healthy, delicious diets. But since my last announcement to my husband I was starting over again all I can hear is his response. "Why are you even trying? You know you will give up at the first sight of chocolate!"

The lack of support I was used to. This time he has left candy at the house after I asked him to put it in his car or take it to work. He has offered to bring sweets home. He looks at me weird when I order healthy at a restaurant. Sabotage has become the only thing he is giving me. I don't understand why.

To top it off, today is our anniversary. Not a peep from him about it. No plans for dinner. No special "I love you." It breaks my heart, but I think it is just another day to him. And no he didn't forget, it is also his birthday. I guess I will just act like it is another day too. Did my workout. Will clean my mom's house after work. To hell with having a special day.

    I'm sorry you had such a bummer day. Have you talked to the hubs to find out why he isn't supporting you? Maybe he doesn't realize that his words and actions are hurting you, or affecting your weight loss. Maybe he's scared that when you lose the weight you will change, and somehow abandon him. I'm not trying to justify his actions, but maybe there is something to it that you could talk out and improve.
    Best of luck!
