    men r rubbish and i'm going to prove mine soooooooo wrong..

    i was happily tucking into my sw chips, egg and beans (all frylight etc) as my fri night treat while he has pizza

    so he looks at my plate laughs and says " thats diet food?? u'll never loose owt on this slimming world i bet no one does "

    had to bite my lip, avoid an argument but when i am a size 12 i'll laugh in his face, thats if i dont smother him in his sleep first lol

    thankfully the encouragement on here is alot nicer lol.. does anyone else have trouble getting partners onboard?

    You go girl lol What great motivation to prove him wrong.

    I am lucky my hubby is supportive but can still be awkward on places to eat that isn't SW friendly. He's not on SW so can't force him to always be accommodating to me

    Good luck

    Oh dear ...my ex did that, had to eat his words, when I lost 6 stone and he lost nearly 3!

    Just make sure you rub his nose in it when the time comes!! lol

    My husband said the same "mixing carbs and meat? That'll never work". Now 4.5 stone lighter he's started to think this thing might work! lol

    Now come on, lets be fair...
    Just because you've got an incosiderate pig for a husband, it's not fair to tar the rest of us with the same brush..
    If you like you can tell him I've lost 5 1/2 stones since the beginning of september eating SW food so it definitely works..

    With u there babe. Hubby said "well done" last night to my weight loss of week 1. It was 8lb and all I got was "well done" like I'd remembered to put the bin out or her was telling me how he wanted his steak. [email protected]!!!!

    My mum did that and I stopped eating and put weight on. Now she is on slimmers world and lost 3 lbs and it is right now. People can affect out diets. Just have to ignore it and keep going :) If only I listened to my own advice lol

    Lets hope that now I have started to eat again I will loose it - fingers crossed!

    I'm ok as hubby is on SW too, so we often look at our HUGE platefuls of yummy food, and comment "this 'diet' is great isn't it" :) last night we tucked in to 3 syn choccy mousse with fruit.

    I hate that people think that about SW!! I don't think it helps that most people think that carbs are evil even though you need them to be alive.....
    If I have dinner at my dad's house and make a big plate of pasta he's always going on about how you can't loose weight like that.
    Each to there own though I say :)
    And remember if he thinks you can't loose weight eating it, it must mean you're eating something really yummy!

    My OH tries really hard to support me :D does all the Ohhhhs and ahhhhs in the right places when i've lost and the motivational bits when I gained over Xmas but just can't see why it doesn't help when he says 'oh go on just one curry won't hurt' or 'oh go on just one night on cider will be ok' or 'I won't bother either then - it's no fun on my own.....' Arrrggghhhh god love him but he makes it such hard work sometimes! :sigh:

    but he's exactly right.. one curry or one cider every now and then won't hurt.. it may even be beneficial.. shake up your metabolism a bit..
    still the "Oh I won't bother then" is a bit below the belt and a guilt trip..

    My boyfriend always asks me how many syns are in something and even though he knows I only do green days he repeatedly winds me up by asking what day my meals are on!
