Ate a great healthy breakfast.
Husband wanted us to eat lunch out in spite of how he knew I was already feeling about the weekend and food.
"Discussed" with husband for about three hours.
(okay... about 1 hour of discussion and 2 hours of yelling and screaming on both sides, very rare in our house)
Hubby finally concluded that YES, OUR
health and our marriage IS more important than junk food. (the short version)
And life goes on... hopefully in a much better direction after today. Actions will speak louder than words in this case.
I compromised to do the regular McDougall plan (gluten free) instead of MWL (at least for family dinners.) Slower weight loss, possibly, but a happy healthy family, most definitely.
He decided it would be better for me to do the planning and shopping until he has his addictions under control and can handle it.
And... I am so exhausted. I hate conflict more than anything. I want a happy, healthy family. Hot tea and a nice Christmas movie should really be a nice end to the day.
All I can say is, this is amazing progress - I am so relieved for you!
Christmas is hard for me, too. I know, not exactly a news flash!
But I do put on my crabby pants when I am the only one not indulging in a treat - hard to remember at times that the best treat is the emotional maturity mentioned above and the enjoyment of good, or at least better, health that follows.
Rooting for you, and following your example!
