Have you ever met someone that didn’t want to lose weight? Or someone who knew how to lose weight but refused? Or someone who argued with his wife about trying to prepare healthier meals for her family so that her child wouldn’t grow up in a fat house SO HELP ME GOD?
I informed my husband today that I would like to get rid of all of the processed foods in our house. I was inspired by this blogger who made the change and immediately noticed that the change was a positive one. She called it a relationship. A relationship with food. Is that what I have with Dr. Pepper, pizza, and Tex-Mex? I thought that I was good at surrounding myself with those that love and care about me and then nurturing those relationships. I was nurturing my own fat ass.
JuJu doesn’t see anything wrong with eating processed foods. Chemicals. Yum! I’m not going to be self-righteous and therefore hypocritical about it because I just snacked on green olives. I want us to eat healthy. I want us to lose weight! I am so fucking tired of being fat! Do you know how cute I’d look in little dresses? With my red hair and blue eyes? I’m adorable, folks, and nobody can see it because of my fat. Namely, I can’t see it. And really, I’m the only person that matters when it comes to my body. Seriously.
So, back to Mr. Fat ‘n Happy. I know that he wants to lose weight. He even bought ‘skinny’ jeans to supposedly motivate him to work out and eat healthier. It didn’t work. I have skinny jeans too. I’m disappointed in us. He seems complacent. This is one thing about him that drives me crazy. I know where he gets it from too which is even more frustrating.
All I can do is work on myself. Since I prepare all of our meals I have control over that aspect. JuJu doesn’t eat lunch but if I made one for him he would take it to work. We stopped eating after 9pm which has helped (although we’ve regressed lately). So while I love my husband and care about his health and happiness I am going to stop nagging him. At least I’ll stop nagging him about his weight. Everything else? Oh it’s still on.
I have written so many damn posts about weight loss. This will be the last one.
