Last night my husband brought an entire case of Girl Scout cookies home from work. It was a box of assorted ones. Luckily for me the only ones I like are the thin mints, but still, what's up with that? He was the one that really motivated me to lose this weight. I really wanted to make our mid years good ones and both of us needed to lose weight so I set about to change our diets. He, however, has not gotten on board.
It seems like he is trying to sabotage my efforts in little subtle ways. I see it all the time and I wonder about it. I cant tell you how often he begged me to lose this weight. He was never mean nor did he ever seem embarrassed of me but privately we would talk about it and he would share his heart on the matter. We have an excellent marriage and I really felt we could move to a new level. My weight was like a white elephant in the middle of the room looming up over every intimate conversation we had.
Now I am losing and he is suggesting going out to dinners and basically bringing unhealthy foods into the house all the time. I guess I'm going to have to get a better understanding of where he is right now on this issue. For now I have to fight those silly thin mints. Again I am determined to win this battle.
There are so many little battles in this war. Each one won is another victory and another pound!
