I don't have a very healthy diet. Since I stay at home with the kids, I tend to feed them lots of sandwiches, mac and cheese, chicken nuggets, etc. I like sandwiches, but not every day, and I'm about sick to death of PB&J. I hate nuggets, fish sticks, mac and cheese, just about anything I make for the kids. When I grocery shop, I tend to just buy them food, so I don't have anything for me, which means I end up eating what ever is in the fridge. Not a balanced diet. I thought the Slim Fast would at least be balanced. When I mentioned my idea to my husband, he was so excited. He even figured out where to buy them cheapest.
When I got married (10 years ago now), I was very thin, actually too thin. I've gained weight after having 2 kids, but most women do. I definitely don't think I'm fat. I work out at the gym usually three times a week, but I'm no where near musclebound, not even firm in lots of places. I know I could lose some weight on my hips and thighs, but it's not terrible.
I think my husband wants me to look completely different. He's really into body building and stuff. He works out at a hard core, hole in the wall gym with no air conditioning. The women that work out there are usually strippers with breast implants (no offense, please, just not my usual crowd). The people I hang out with are other women at church with children, usually more children then me. They're focused on their children and God, not having a hard body. This is what I like to be focused on too.
So basically I think my husband and I have different expectations of what I should look like. He tries to tell me that I look ok, but then he gets so excited over me doing something like Slim Fast, so I know he must not be happy with the way I look. I just now sent him an email saying that I'm hungry, and he told that having an orange is fine, but not to give in and have lunch. That would be defeating the purpose (I know that). So I responded and told him that I guess I'd just have to get used to being hungry, and he told me "when you start seeing results you won't even care about being hungry anymore!" Is that sad or what!
Anyway, sorry to go on so long. I'm just kind of bummed.
