You can't win...

So its been about a month since I started exercising. I've wanted to lose weight since baby#1, but of course my mind set was if I am going to have more children and close together, why bother I'm just going to gain it back anyhow. So its been 10 months since my last child and its the new year what better time to get started. My in-laws brought over an exercise machine that they weren't using for me month ago, and for a month strait my husband has been making fun of me. You'd think he'd be happy for me, and him that I want to look good, but nooo... it started the night the machine came into the house and I had them set it up in the living room. They all teased because Nate said he would be taking it down in a week and putting it in our basement (where it came from at my father-in-laws). So now instead of saying wow I was wrong its been a whole month I get made fun of because I gained 4 lbs on it, which he lovingly made into 8lbs, but in my defense I also weighed myself right before my monthly friend and after a night out to dinner so I am not sure how accurate that was and then he had the nerve to say because the next time I weighed myself and I lost the 8lbs 4lbs, "you're right back where you started so what's the point"!! WHATS THE POINT??? YOU ASK!! Well the point is to lose weight, feel better, look good for you and for me and BECAUSE I WANT TO!! Is that enough I mean seriously what happened to standing behind someone, and supporting them? Is that to much to ask? I guess so!! Well anyhow I will keep exercising, but not in spite of him because I want to and when I do look and feel better I'll get to say "no thanks to you, buddy!" No I won't really, but a little senserity would be nice and some respect and encouragement without the hehehe as I turn to walk away.

its great that your exercising!! Even if you gain weight. Remember muscle is always heavier than fat. So it may seem like you gained or maintained at first but before you know it you will start dropping the weight like crazy. As for Nate, talk to him about those comments. Maybe he is insecure about you looking HOT..I think if you let him know how the comments make you feel he will stop making them.
