    The part that saddens me is the quality of life differences.

    I would love to go for a walk in the evenings with him, but he would rather sit in front of the tv, so I go alone.

    On vacation, I would love to do ziplines, mountain bike rides, active stuff. He would rather sit on a 4 wheeler, sit in a boat and can't do zip lines because of the weight limit. He is right at the edge of the limit. So, I sit on excursions with him because it is what we can both do. Otherwise, we do our fun things different.

    Those are the sad things that are separating us. I am getting to the point where I will start to plan my fun stuff, and he can do things alone. Why, when I work hard to get healthy, eat good, exercise and have energy, do I have to do the 'sit' stuff?! His choice to stay unhealthy, so his choice to sit alone.

    The part where I love him has kept me from doing that. But, if he loved me, he would want to take better care of himself so we can do things together.

    The other day he talked again about changing careers and going back to driving long haul big rig trucks. He stated that he is getting older and his job right now is physical and he is not sure how much longer he can do it. He is 46 years old! That is not old. His job is a lot of walking, not lifting heaving things or heavy physical stuff. It saddens me he is thinking of his future as needing to sit more. I don't know what to do.

    I just hope to be a good example and hope he changes his views. I doubt it though. Too much like his parents. Sad.

    I want to jump out of airplanes!
    I want to run a mudder this summer!
    I want to have fun and do some extreme stuff.

    Looks like I will be doing it alone......

    I'd definitely like to try it myself sometime, so thanks for the tip. I guess I'll have him try it too, but I don't expect that he'll care for it =P

    BTW, speaking of reading labels, even my cat does it now:

    Thanks for the recommendation. I've tried Tinkyada rice noodles and several other brands cooked all different lengths, salted differently, lid on/off... I have come to the conclusion I just don't like rice noodles. The lasagna ones are okay, but other than that, I would rather forgo a noodle than have a rice noodle.

    I also could never pass them off as "real" noodles on the kid (3 at the time) like I can with Ancient Grains.

    For me, if my significant other didn't acknowledge his diet is crap and agree I get full control of our children's diets... It'd be a problem. I don't want his diet ruining my children's health. It'd also be a problem if he wasn't supportive of me with my diet. He's extremely supportive and it means so much to me.

    I do feel a pang of "missing out" when I make something awesome and he is unable to try it.

    However, he has a eating disorder (phobia of new foods, has safe foods), so it's a bit different than someone who chooses not to eat healthfully. He is slowly working on the disorder and not going to insist our children eat grains at each meal -- not much more I could ask for. I'd have much more trouble with someone insisting their crap diet wasn't harmful than I have with this.

    It's a phobia, an irrational fear of something. It doesn't have to make sense to you. You wouldn't go and lock someone with claustrophobia in a closet would you?

    I might, depends on the situation. My advice stands. he is not willing to face his problems and get help then get insurance on him so that you wont be stranded with a long healthy life without his support. Cold blooded it may be but you have to look after yourself and he clearly wont.

    Change can be scary. A lot of people start to ask themselves, "Who would I be if I didn't have this anymore?" and can't come up with an answer that doesn't scare the shit out of them.

    Thanks for sticking up for my fiancÚ Hanna. I think warm bear was referring to Kris' sig other who just doesn't want to live a healthy lifestyle, not my fiancÚ. At least I hope not! His eating disorder is a very real condition he can't just choose to get better from similar to someone can't just choose not to have a heart condition. With both, lifestyle modifications are necessary for healing, but simply a desire to be better is not near enough.
