How Does Your Spouse (Significant Other) Help You Re: Your Healthy Lifestyle Changes?

Thursday, March 25, 2010

If you don't have a spouse or significant other in your life at this time, do you have a friend or family member who has supported you in your quest for a healthier life? What is he/she or what are they doing specifically to aid you in this journey?

    My husband goes on many walks with me. As for the food part my family is okay with some changes & others I have to be more patient with them. One example is pasta--I'd like to switch to whole wheat, but they need a L-O-N-G adjustment phase. I' slowly substituting a few more whole wheat noodles into the regular pasta each time I make it.
    My mom is also on this journey & making good progress so we support each other.

    My husband has been very supportive of everything. He understands when I'd rather make dinner than go out to eat. (a year ago I was begging him to take me out to eat) He will also put aside what he has to do so that I can get to Curves in the evening if I didn't get there in the morning. He's always telling me how proud he is of me :)

    My husband is TOTALLY with me on this and I know that I BLESSED because of that!!! He eats what I eat - although he eats more of it and he's pretty much on his own for lunch. He also walks with me in the mornings when weather permits. And he is fitter and healthier than he used to be too. He is my champion - I could not have lost the weight or taken the journey this far without him!

    My spouse is not a real big help in this plan. He really likes to have our meals remain with items we have always cooked. Some days he does go for lots of fresh fruits & veggies, and that does help. My inspiration this time around is my daughter. She introduced me to SP and is making great progress on her own.
    Seeing her make so much progress with her busy life shows me I should be doing a lot more to get back in shape myself.
    Having the "friends" (old & new) here on SP is also inspirational.
