I was diagnosed about 3 yrs ago with type 2 diabetes. At the time i weighed 320 lbs. It took me a long time and a lot of self control but I have since dropped to 250lbs. I moved in with my boyfriend a yr ago. He knows how hard it has been for me and says he will do whatever he can to help me. The problem is…he continues to buy ice cream (not just one tub but usually at least 2 different kinds) cannoli's..pastries..cooks lots of pasta..yes he's Italian..but all this is the WORST stuff for me.During the summer months he does grill but thats only 3 months out of the year. He did say once he was afraid if I got down to my ideal weight..one that I'm healthy AND feel good about myself …that I might leave him so thats why the more I think about it the more I feel like he might be sabotaging my progress. I was walking 5 miles everyday but all that was doing was maintaining my weight…I wasn't able to lose any so I got very discouraged and then that leads to depression for me..I feel like its a vicious circle with no opening for me to escape. I guess I don't really expect an answer to this..not sure what I expect but just felt the need to write it down.
