My husband sabotaged me and I am not happy. I work two jobs. This is a tuff week, I am working 5, 12 hr sifts in a row. Today I am on my fourth. My obsticle is I can not muster up the will power to exercise after working 12 hours. I leave my house at 6am and get back at 830pm. If I keep to my calories I feel I am doing well on the days I work.. Well Yesterday my husband SABOTAGED me. My 3rd 12hours shift in a row. I came home, I am tired. At work we ordered Chinese, I worked it into my calories. I felt good about it. Then I got home. My husband made home made pizza. I was DOOMED!!!! I tried the lifting of the cans( how much weight i lost). NO GOOD. I ate the pizza. Then he broke out the candy bars. I fell into the PIT! Had a candy bar.
When I woke up today, my 4th in a row, tired and all. I realized I ruined a whole wee. I "fell off the wagon". August 1st Back on, packed my breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I WILL SUCEEDE TODAY!!!!!

    Look on the bright side, at least your husband thought enough of you to cook. He was probably only looking out for you since you've been working so many hours. You're really lucky, even though you exceeded your calories.

    in a way, perhaps he was trying to do something nice for you since you are working these long hours. Did he know that you had Chinese already at work and that was your dinner?
    We all have days like this and that is more than normal. so just start fresh, tell hubby thanks but you really do need to watch what you are eating since you are not working out. t His heart seemed to be in the right place

    Those days happen but just like you need...you regroup and start fresh the next day and forget about the pizza... emoticon

    It's really hard when you are working so much and are so tired. In the beginning of my journey, my husband kinda did things like that as well. After a few arguments and break down on my part, he now is my best supporter and even finds things for me that I can have and has even learned to look at labels. I thank him every day for his support because he is one of the lucky ones that doesn't ever gain a lb. and is actually a little underweight.

    Maybe try having a talk with your husband. Good luck and continued success to you!

    Maybe I am not one to comment on this...so sorry if I offend you or any other posters...but I believe you hadn't fallen off the wagon. Why is it that there can't be one day that you can treat yourself to something you like? I interpret from your blog, that you like pizza and candy bars... If you feel like you won't be able to control a once and a while treat for yourself of something that you like, there will be many more times that falling off the wagon will occur. I am more than positive that I have read in success stories and SP pages that it is okay to have something you really like on an occasional basis. Just mark this up as one of those times.

    Wishing you the best of luck and continued success!

    Are you tracking your calories? It does sound like you need to talk with him, but don't give away control here. How will you deal with this next time, since it's bound to happen? If you have the right serving size of pizza, and had something you could eat to replace the candy bars, would that work? You can't really control your husband's choices, but you can change your response. If you both do grocery shopping, make sure to get some healthy choices that you can have as an option.

    best wishes,

    Sounds like you need to sit hubby down and have a nice chat about your goals and how he can support you. Kudos for your positive attitude and determination to get right back on track after this minor setback. You can do it!!
