Saboteur Or Pleaser

Thursday, January 16, 2020

Yesterday I told my husband I was down at least 7 pounds since, let's say the beginning of the year. I've been yo-yo-ing for awhile now but this is the first time I have had, what I call a major lost, in awhile. My husband and I each have jeans that when you wash them they shrink, so you have to wear them awhile before they fill out and stop pinching your stomach. So we both try to wear our jeans as many times as possible before throwing them in the washer. Well I ride the bus, so I need to wash my clothes often. I told my husband that I washed my jeans on Tuesday and when I put them on for the first time after a wash, I didn't have to squeeze in them. I told him they were still a little tight on my stomach, but they zipped up nicely. I said I guess 7 pounds makes a difference. We had this conversation yesterday. This morning when he gets up, he says, "you want to get a donut before work?" I'm thinking is he for real? No, I don't want a donut. But I say, okay. Mind you yesterday I was late to work and today we were pressed for time. So he say's I don't have any cash though, do you have any? I say I guess we can't get donuts. But he knows I have cash because he gave me a few dollars the other day and I don't spend my money quickly. I said I have cash. When we get in the car he ask me how many donuts you want. I said I don't know. How many do you want? He says he is getting two. We got lucky. No one was in the donut shop when we got there. So we each get two donuts. I had a hard time figuring out what my second donut would be because I really didn't have a taste for one. I actually made it to work earlier than yesterday. The traffic seems to be lighter on Thursdays. I bring my lunch and breakfast to work. When I got to work, I had to decide what I would not eat so that I can eat a donut. No problem, I had cereal and milk, and some oatmeal cookies. I didn't eat that and had my donut for breakfast. The other donut is still in my bag. I will save it for tomorrow. But I said all this to ask the question: Is my husband trying to sabotage me or what? I admit, I used to love going to that donut shop. But I haven't went there in awhile and I didn't even enjoy the donut. I'm really happy the scale moved and I want it to keep moving. My husband is the one who is always on my case about sweets and junk because of my A1C level and I tell him about my small victory and he wants to buy donuts? I think I may have to keep the numbers on the scale to myself for awhile.

    Marriage is sometimes just hard because the other person is a guy.

    DLDDLD, It does sound harsh, but don't be sorry. Whenever I post something I know I'm opening myself up for criticism. Have a Blessed Day!

    I too have worked hard to lose a little weight and my dh who needs to lose far more than I do struggles as well. Fridays are take out days in our household and last weekend dh suggested we order submarine sandwiches from a new establishment. I looked at the nutrition count and an average full size sub was about 1500 calories. I told him that he was welcome to do what he wanted but that I would not be joining him. We settled on Subway where I could get a full size turkey sub loaded with veggies for about half the calorie count. I'm sorry that your husband is not more intuitive but perhaps you should have spoken up. You agreed to the donut stop, the number of donuts, and coughed up the cash. You cannot expect your husband to read what's in your mind when your words are telling him something different. Sorry if this sounds harsh.
