Hey, this is my first post in this forum, my name is Geoffrey, but you can call me Jeff. In case you are wondering, I'm the fat spouse, hence why I joined this website. I am interested in losing weight to make my wife happy, and myself healthy. But... I'm just really not happy with the choices before me.
Ever since I found this blog, I have felt a little resentful towards my wife. She had already talked to me about my weight, but I procrastinated, and I just didn't really do anything. I think, for about two weeks, I ate a salad for lunch and dinner, and skipped breakfast, drank nothing bu****er, and only dropped about 8-10lbs. I'm 350, so that wasn't much to me. I got discouraged and continued my binging behaviour. But, recently I got the motivation to start anew, and then I find this in the history of my computer!
