Salad and Exercise

I've been doing them both, you know, the salad and the exercise. And now my husband is in a really bad mood. Seriously, he's like pissed off that I am eating more healthfully and exercising. Has anyone else experienced this kind of thing? I know he exercises regularly, he's never had a weight problem. I've not changed a damn thing other than eating salad at dinner instead of what he and the kids are eating.

What gives?

I dunno. I've been doing the 30 Day Shred thing for 2 weeks and my husband's acting all cranky, too. Especially, at night, when I...gently...refuse his offer of a piece of cake, or something. Personally, I believe my husband Garth (not his real name) envisioned us growing old and, you know, unhealthy together :( As if I needed any extra guilt, right?

In our house it is the other way around. My husband will announce that he is swearing off all snacks, get to the gym every morning, start losing weight, etc. Meanwhile I become shrewish and sabotagey. I'll eat snacks in front of him. I'll question why he needs to go to the gym. He loses weight easily which is a problem. I can exercise til the cows come home but if I don'treduce the amount I eat I do not lose weight.

Mine is really supportive. He should be. It was his careless comments about my body when I was a teenager that turned me into the binging monster with no self-esteem that I am! (Only kidding a little.)

I would prefer he not acknowledge my dieting in any way, except to tell me I look good once in a while. He wants me to be my old thin self, so he's doing what I want.

Your husband's probably cranky because he lost his eating buddy. Were you overweight when he met you? Maybe that's the difference. He likes you the way you are and doesn't want you to rock the boat. Or, maybe he's unhappy with something about himself, and seeing you doing something positive is reminding him that he's not fixing whatever he should fix. He'll get over it.

Maybe he likes you the way you are.

(Or maybe his vagina hurts)

I have heard that a lot of men feel threatened by their wives losing weight because they think that that their wife is going to lose weight, get hot, and leave them for someone else.

Thankfully my husband could care less if I weighed 150 pounds or 250 pounds ;)

This should not be happen. Your husband should think about your health too, It will be better if you both will be healthy and fit. Keep going as a women needs more care.
