Well, I have the approval now from my husband to start a healthier menu at our house. Now, it's up to me to make it happen, as the chief chef in our household. Losing weight, while married, has its own challenges, one of which is to make food for everyone that they will eat, and still make it healthy.
For the last year, I have not been formally trying to lose weight. I am getting back on the horse again, and am going to go for it again. I found that cooking for a husband and teenager has made it "feel" impossible, and I guess I have used this as a reason not to try very hard. Now,that reason is gone. My dear husband has agreed to a healthy diet. He is trusting me, the dear sweet thing. And that means I can cut out the unhealthy food from our table, at least for the most part. For me, I have to start becoming aware again.
For the last year, I have trained myself to become "unaware" of what I am eating, because I just started to believe that it wasn't possible to lose weight. I got tired of being discouraged, and just decided to let myself be. Now, I have to become aware again, of calories, sugar content, and fat content.
I think that the people we live with are an extremely important factor in losing weight, for everyone. How about you? How does your family, or significant other factor into your weight loss experience. I'd love to hear any comments! Take care.
