My husband is the worst when it comes to eating right. In the 6 years we have been married I have gained over 50 lbs. He is a fabulous cook and prepares most of our meals.
As I prepare for lap and surgery in June, I am trying to explain to him that I would like to start preparing meals since his way of cooking is not healthy, or if he wants to cook to use the cookbooks I have purchased.
The guy has a big heart, but thinks nothing of bringing home a 5 lb bag of mini Reese’s peanut butter cups. Yes he has a weight problem, but he is only 30 lbs over weight, compared to my over 100 lbs.
I see him scouring the web for information on how my lap band will effect him. I get the sense that he is thinking that this will become a huge burden on him, and will eventually destroy our marriage. How can I explain to him that his role is to support me and in doing so all will be good?
Any answers you can provide will be helpful.
