Whats a girl to do?

2007 when I was 220 lbs!!! WHOA ME~~~!!
First of all, let me explain to you guys how much I love my husband and I respect him FULLY!! I also give him my undivided attention whenever the baby isn't my first priority and then.... you guys fit in there somewhere. Well, with all of that being said. I have a dilemma.

My husband actually sat me down and told me that my weight loss goal was starting to become obsessive and I was obsessed with losing weight. I thought I was doing everything right. I was watching my calories, weighing myself ever so frequently, shopping correctly, and working out every chance I got along with documenting it via my blog and youtube. Well, he thought I needed to give it a break and chill out, so I did. I directed my attention to something else to help pass the time. I decided to start playing in my makeup/hair on a daily basis. I play in it all the time and shop online for the best deals. I love it, it takes me away from my daily task of cleaning up, cooking, and all the other stuff us stay at home moms do. Well, my husband said AGAIN that I was becoming obsessed with my makeup and hair! I decided to cut back a little on the hair/makeup thingy and I started watching youtube videos in my spare time...now keep in mind, I do all of these things AFTER I've taken care of home, and everything is squared away
Well, low and behold he told me I was obsessed with youtube so of course, I had to give it a break.
I had to stop and think.... "what the hell am I to do now". Well, I've come up with - nothing - I guess I will start blogging more often since my other hobbies were something my husband thought was obsessive. I would like some feedback on what you ladies think of this.

I mean, I really want to start losing weight again, play in my makeup/hair, and watch videos but my husband always says I am obsessed with something when all I am doing is simply engaging myself with extra curricular activities to pass time when everything else is done around the house.
Granted, I know you guys are going to ask if I spend time with him. Of course I do! We sit and watch TV together, we have dinner together every evening when he gets off work, we lay in bed together at night and reflect on our days adventures, we go out for icecream sometimes after dinner, we watch TV together amongst other things we like to do so I dont know whats the problem. Why do you think he doesn't like me to engage in my hobbies. When I asked him about it, he said I was exaggerating and I need to do my hobbies in moderation. So, all of that said..where do I go from here. I guess I will start blogging more?


  1. Maybe he needs some extra attention. Or ask him what he would like you to do.

    Oh the dilemmas of having a hubby!

  2. Why not start a business? Something you really enjoy doing and don't have to dedicate too much time to. You can do it when you get ready.

  3. Sorry but the above person said something real stupid. Starting a business takes alot of time and dedication. BUT ANYWAY...maybe it is your turn to sit down with your husband and tell him about how this all makes you feel. Make some type of compromise. I very much respect that you have this level of devotion to where you would give up something to please him but you gotta have fun too!

  4. Well damn! What's left for you to do? Sorry but he sounds very possessive or in need of constant attention. U_u Good luck with dealing with that. I'm sure anything you chose to do with your time will be seen as obsessive by him.

  5. @anonymous 4:05pm - you are absolutely right. I brought that up to him and told him that he needs to let me do what make s me happy and he agreed full-heartedly. We decided that I will continue on with my losing weight and he admitted that he only wants to spend time with me...so from here its ON AND POPPIN YOU GUYZ!! I', abou tto get on it 100% again!

  6. Yeah I'll be waiting for the videos and posts.

  7. I'm late with my response but maybe all the extra pretty time is making him a lil nervous about the potential attention other men will give you...a lil jealous

    It maybe something simple but he sees how good you look with the makeup, hair, and weight loss. He may be thinking it could draw attention from men. Know what I mean? Its natural. He loves you and thinks you are beautiful. He doesnt want the unwanted nonsense. Just a thought...

    Good luck to you!! You are doing a GREAT job with your weight loss journey.

  8. Hello...I know this is an old post...did u guys resolve the issue? I hope so, and congrats on the baby!
