Let me ask you a question, how are you supposed to lose weight when you get no support at home?
I may sound a bit angry about this topic because I talk about this at least everyday with my clients at the gym. It frustrates me as well because I want them to reach their goals, but it's not possible at times when the people around them don't seem to care.
I also had a conversation today with a young client of mine about his family. He want to lose weight, and his family wants him to lose weight, but they continue to eat junk food around him and all they say is "you are not allowed to have this". Funny, hey?
What I mean is, how do you stick to clean eating when your family or your spouse is eating junk food at home right in front of you with no concern about your feelings? How are you supposed to resist temptation when it is brought in the house all the time? I bet there are many people out there have this happening right now, and you are angry at your family. I also bet there are a lot of people that will give in to temptation, then are angry with themselves and will not stop beating themselves up over screwing up again. It is a vicious and awful cycle of sabotage and feelings of defeat.
How do you try to fix this problem at home? When I say it is a problem, it really is. You have a goal of weight loss and your own family does not care and might think it is stupid. Why should you not care about your health just because they don't? That's not really fair.
Instead of ignoring the situation or having a big fight about it, sit down and talk about your goals and feelings. Tell your family that you really need help from them, and discuss how this is hard enough without all the temptation they bring around the house. If you approach it in a civilized manner, the situation should be easier to talk about.
Hopefully after approaching your family or your spouse, they are willing to understand you more and help a little. Hopefully when they see the positive changes in your health, they will be willing to make some changes too!
