    when i started on LP i didn't tell my hubby. i tried to hide it from him and do it secretly but he found the shakes.

    he has started making fun and making jokes already.

    he's calling me lipo and buying things i like to eat. e.g. french bread, popcorn, cakes and icecream. he said he bought it for the kids but i think he's trying to rub it in my face. he even held a warm french bread with butter in my face and said smell isn't it nice?.

    the other thing is i know he'll tell people what i'm doing that's also the other reason i didn't want him to know. i don't want people to know, i want them to see me slim and say wow, you look great, how did you do it?

    but he's gonna spoil it for me. ugg

    OMG:eek: That is such a cruel thing to do. You should ask him straight what he prefers - fat and unhappy you or slim happier you! My dad used to do this to my mum, and her counsellor told her it was because he was insecure and didn't like it when she did things for herself...especially not things that made her more attractive.

    OMG - that is so bad!!!
    Keep you chin up and keep posting here - there is tons of support! xxx

    erm..I'm sorry but -what a prat! Is there no way you can make him understand how important this is to you?
    COuld there be other reasons he may not want you to lose weight?

    I find it so hard to understand how someone who should be supportive could do that...I feel so lucky now that my partner is doing with me, I'm not sure I'd stick to it in your situation.

    You should buy some kinky underwear and wave it under his nose - sayin 'hmmmm, looks good doesn't it?' then bang on the aul' bridget Jones control knickers and say -well! You wanted it this way!

    omg he needs a good kick up the backside.

    My partner wudnt dare tell anyone what I was doing and if he did i would kill him. As far as im concerned it's my business no one else's.

    He prob is afraid u will become a skinny minny and run of with someone better looking than him

    Thats such a shame what a prat, just get a printed T-Shirt made -

    Front - I AM ONLY HERE BECAUSE I AM FAT
    Back - WHEN I AM THIN I AM GONE

    That should put a sock in his insecure mouth, worse case scenarion people do find out what you are doing, could work in your favour and give you more incentive to stay focused;)

    Goodluck
