Don't be sorry for needing to write. Many heal and process through the written word. I am sorry you are feeling this struggle, I have struggled similarly. It is hard when you have to prepare foods that you love for others to enjoy while you watch and eat something you are telling yourself you will grow to love. My husband won't eat chicken or seafood of any kind. He doesn't like most pork. He prefers potatoes, rice a roni, and any starchy foods. My husband has shared often that he has always been drawn to larger women. Until recently, he never knew me under 200 lbs and I often worried if my desire to lose weight would change our relationship, and it has. As my body is changing, my husband has shared that he is sad because my underarm flab is getting smaller (and he loves jiggling it). He also shared my but and legs are getting smaller. He is paying attention more, touching more and commenting more about what I am doing. I was told 2 days ago that he didn't think he would like a smaller but and legs, but he actually likes it better. There is hope in this, but you have to care more about you at this phase of the game. If you believe that he will hold you down, you need to figure outwhat kind of life preserver you will need before you drown and not fear reaching for it. You have to be the one to decide how long and how much you can handle.I believe in you! You are worth the time alone at the gym and the time alone eating healthier.

Sometimes it is better to be on your "own" than expect our boyfriend/spouse to help us. You can do this on your own,,with support like writing here. Keep up with the exercise and choosing the right foods. My husband and I eat completely differently and he fixes his own meals. I just recently noticed he is eating more healthy than I am! Surprise, surprise. It makes me just want to work harder.

Yes. This! I so needed to read this today - I've been battling with myself that I'm allowed to eat junk because of my exams :'( We deserve to feel strong, and secure, and capable! Sugary, fatty junk food won't let us achieve any of that. Let's do this! :D Best of luck!
We need to talk about self sabotage

I completely agree with you. I am a self sabatour and realized that a few years ago. My big problem is that I have struggled going beyond acknowledging that fact. This time is my time, and I have decided to include others in my process to help me fight harder to reach my own goals. I know I am worth it, and I also know it will be ahard struggle if I go it alone. Thanks for sharing.

Hazel

I agree as well. In the past I would try to tell myself I am worth losing the weight and being happier and healthier but in truth I didn't believe it so sabotaged myself. I wondered if I was committing a slow motion suicide by not changing that way of thinking, eating and living. I now have only myself to blame if I don't change my ways I just need to believe in myself and be a best friend to myself and find my own inner encouragement. I think I'm on the right path now. :-)
