After two years of off and on weight loss for me..my husband is finally on board we me on the get healthy and stay healthy.
We nixed pop and most junk a few weeks ago and have switch most of our meals to as much real whole foods as possible. I even stopped buying all snack crackers, fruit snacks and unhealthy snacks of any kind for the kids.
I struggled giving up the pop at first, and even was sometimes at a loss of what to give the kids for snacks. I had to completely reprogram myself on it. Lol the kids and hubby did well with the change and we all feel better and have a lot more energy!
Now hubby and I are going to start weighing in together once a week and keeping each other accountable with working out.
It is nice having everyone else on board with me now!

I WISH my husband was like that. He moans and groans he needs to lose about 50 lbs (even tho he carries it well) but whenever he agrees to a diet he acts like a starving lunatic. Yesterday between lunch and dinner he wanted a snack because he was dying of hunger, so I gave him a salad and told him he could have some cottage cheese too. He dumps the whole container on top of the salad. Really? And today after dinner he sat there and ate 4 pieces of white bread, and then proceeded to tell me every doctor reccomends a diet high in carbs. If your an athlete maybe! Ugh. He is the reason I can't stick to diets. He does this everytime until I get frustrated and give up.

Lol
My hubby wasn't too bad to begin with. He just liked to have pop in the house and a few other unhealthy meals/snacks.
He is the one that makes me mad though. Hes the type to just cut out pop or a snack and lose 5 lbs in a week. It takes me busting my butt and counting every calorie to lose 1lb. Lol

DH can eat the worlds worst crap, I will eat healthy, he will lose and I will gain. In fact, right now he is eating a piece of chocolate chip cookie cake (left over from his birthday). SMH, why do I even try?!
