Your Family

Our families are amazing and important. They shape a lot of the characteristics that we have. So, nothing that I say is by any means a way to “dog” on them. When it comes to weight loss, they can have a huge effect on our success. For a long time, my husband and I were trying to lose weight. We would go on and on about how we were going to keep each other strong. However, it kept being an issue that when one of us would have a bad day, the other would follow. There came a point where I decided that it didn’t matter what he chose to do. I wasn’t losing weight and becoming healthier for him but for myself. For some reason this made a big difference in my mindset. However, there was also times that I didn’t do as well because I felt almost guilty when I could tell he would feel like a failure because I had success and he was still struggling (he never once said this to me but always cheered me on). He has also started having his own success as well, but on his own terms. I also have family members that have struggled trying to lose weight and eat healthier in a big family. When dinners every night are enchiladas, mac and cheese, or pasta. It takes a lot of work to be able to take a step away from the family habits that may be contrary to what you need to do to be healthier. It would be great if the whole family could all be eating a perfect diet but that doesn’t always happen.
