Girl tell him the way to encourage you is to point out what he does like and not what he doesnt like! I find that looking at pictures of women I would like to resemble encourages me. I say "I want to look like that!" and I do whatever it takes to become healthy and thin. Chewing gum helps me alot to not emotionally eat. Brushing your teeth alot helps too as crazy as it seems you have a tendancy to not want to eat after you brush haha! I walk alot and I mean ALOT because I hate conventional exercise! There is a gym here that has t.v. right in front of the treadmills so we congregate there and watch our court shows and soap operas! Make exercise fun! Find out what you like and make a exercise out of it!!! Do it for you and dont let his comments make you feel bad. Look at it as a challenge that you WILL win!!! Good Luck!!!!

I've gained, too. But not because I eat more but because I exercise less! So, honey and I have this agreement thing. He has to help motivate me. With life being so chaotic...especially with a prison situation...he asks every so often "Are you still working out?" Since I don't lie to him I HAVE to answer honestly. If I haven't been, he gets all sad and says "Baby, I want to be able to go to the gym with you when I get out. AND, I want us to live a LONG life together. Please keep working out." Ya can't beat that for motivation, huh? :love:

Does your honey lift weights? If so, maybe this is how he can help you. He can motivate you (positively, though) to keep going.

If you need more help or support, PM me. I'm taking this class through work and have gotten lots of helpful advice. I like it because it's not a count your points kind of thing...just a "here are the facts, incorporate them into your life" kind of thing. I don't have the brain power left to worry about points and such. I've lost almost 10 pounds by just watching what I eat more closely. I haven't even done the whole gamut of items (8 glasses of water, exercise 3X a week, eat fruits and veggies, etc.)

There's also a Diet and Nutrition forum on here. Good luck!

I've gained around 30 lbs......but I'm pregnant so it's to be expected. Lol.

I've sent pics of the preggo belly so he's prepared for it. The last time he saw me, it was in court and I was sitting down so I def will look much different than he remembers.

my meds are effing me up so bad. I have switched onto so many meds. From January to April, I was on meds that made me lose weight and I lost 35 pounds. In May, they switched my meds and put me on a whole bunch of weight gainers (a$%holes) and didn't tell me why I was gaining so much weight (was eating as little as before). I can't get out much w/my health but I try to walk some(won't be outside anymore. It's snowing like crazy right now) I joined a woman's gym with my dad's fiance. Mike hates seeing me and hearing me so sick...he doesn't care about my weight (or at least when I get upset b/c of it, he tells me it doesn't matter. He just wants me to feel better. But for me, I want to lose weight again because all my clothes are size 6-8 from last year to April and none of my clothes fit me

after the baby was born eeek i gained about 35 lbs and man...it is hard to get it back off. he doesn't complain about it but ugh I COMPLAIN!

my hobby isn't eating at all, so that frustrates me even more! i'd rather be overweight from overeating than overweight from another problem!

Just remember ladies that we are much harder on ourselves than anyone else is! As a personal trainer and fitness instructor I am very familiar with a lot of the mental hurdles that go along with weight issues. Anyone is welcome to PM me if they need to vent or discuss anything.

He got lock up in jan 2007 and since then I've gain about 5 to 10 lbs and I dont like it. He doesnt care as long as i dont let myself go to bad. My knee is messed up so i cant exercise until the doc gives me the ok. My man has also gained weight since he's been locked up he gain 25 lbs i think. So we're in the same boat.

I go up and down. It has a lot to do about what stage we're in. Mainly it's down because of the medicine I take. I have one that I have to eat at least something before I take it but on days when I'm missing him the most, I forget about medicine and anything else. That's truly not good for me but that's how it goes at time. The messed up thing about the medicine is that it takes away my appetite, so how can you eat before taking it? My husband wants me to gain more weight but that's truly something I DO NOT WANT TO DO! So I've really been blessed not to put it on!

Oh my gosh, I gained over 60 lbs. during my pregnancy! Since then I've gained over 30 more. All along my husband has been very supportive, never a mean or degrading word. He always tells me I'm beautiful and sexy
About a month ago I started working out again 5 days a week, drinking more water and being a choosy eater. I've already lost 10 lbs. and hopefully I can be at a comfortable weight by the time he comes home.
It is so hard, but mine also tells me he wants us to live a long life together and be able to do things as a family together, so that is a big motivator for me, but really it comes down to wanting it enough for myself and putting in the necessary work

I have gained....okay I don't even want to talk about it!! I gained 50 pounds through-out this bid. I've SLOWLY lost 41 and the last 10 I want to lose has been a killer! I eat when I'm happy, I eat when I'm sad and mostly I don't work out hardly at all anymore. I need to go to Yoga tomorrow, but of course, I'll find something better to do. LOL

I used to drive to see him every Sunday and eat like I didn't have good sense. Then one day I was just tooooooo FAT and toooooo TIRED and toooooo OUTTA SHAPE! I just made a decision I'm losing this. It has been so hard but I got 10 more to go and honestly, I'm not thinking I'm going to lose it.

But he loves me and actually my size right now. But when my clothes don't fit, I gotta make some changes.

The fruit and veggie diet would last all of 4 hours for me haha. If I lasted that long!! I cant restrict myself to certain foods. I just try to work off whatever food I ate!!!

BMarley & Rickey's ya'll need to help me figure out how to lose instead of gain. I wish stress would make me skinny. I'd be a size 0 and my man would be pissed cuz he loves my size. It's my clothes and my mirror that hate my size.

I've gained weight since my Hubby was locked up, but I also quit using drugs. So, it's to be expected. I have a personal trainer now and I'm eating better, so hopefully I'll be able to lose weight the healthy way!!
