More of the same

Today's weight: 221.5 (-1.5 from last week)

The gain from last week is gone, which is great, but if I'm being honest, I'm a little disappointed that I didn't lose more.

My eating was spot on last week so I wanted one of those weigh ins where I had a whoosh and was suddenly under 220.  Sigh, maybe another day.

The husband and I have been having some problems lately.  I'm not sure how much I'll go into it on my diet blog, but after 18 years together, I'm at my wit's end.  I know the biggest problem is that he doesn't have a job and doesn't seem to want one.  It's putting a huge strain on me.

I was basically a child when we started dating and I've never had another serious relationship.  So this part about us struggling is really rough on me.  I love him and want to work on our problems, but the problems won't resolve if I'm the only one trying to work on them.


  1. Nice loss though and hoping you will see your whoosh soon! I'm hoping for one as well.

    And so sorry to hear about the struggles that you guys are facing right now. It's tough and it's hard to compromise when you are the only one doing the compromise. Hang in there and just try to keep those lines of communication open.

  2. So sorry to hear about your struggles at home. It is hard when we feel like the one who is supposed to be our partner isn't a partner at all. I wish there was a magic wand to make it all better for you both.

    On the weight loss front, I often find that the scale is lagging about a week so if you keep up the spot on eating, it will show up next week :) Don't get discouraged.

  3. Congrats on a great weigh in.

    I'm sorry to hear of the relationship troubles. I hope you two can hang on and work through this tough time.

  4. You are still really close to being under 220. Keep aiming for it. You are right, if you are the only one working on the problem, it can't be resolved. I hope things work out for you guys.
