Would this bother you, too?

I think it would bother me if he was constantly having that attitude.

I mean, he is just starting something new, so he is probably just exited. 

If this attitude continued, though, I’d have a serious talk with him about how he’s hurting my feelings.

There is always two sides of the story. Before confronting him, try to think to yourself if it is his attitude what is bothering you or that you feel bad because you think you should be exercising and you are not.

Try to relax a little bit! As I said, he might just be a little too exited about this! 🙂

Haha my FI sounds the same. He gets into these health kicks and starts telling me that I shouldn’t eat something that we both in the past enjoyed. At the moment he doesn’t mix meat with carbs, so if I’m feeling like a steak with mashed potatoes, I need to be prepared for the “health” talk, lol

Why does he feel the need to point it out if it’s soooo obvious? Sounds like he’s just kind of being a jerk…sorry.

It might seem obvious to him, but he needs to judge whether his words have a positive effect or not. Saying he’s so far ahead serves no purpose other than to bring himself up and therefore bring you down. I’d tell him I wouldn’t want to hear those sorts of things again.

@MrsPhilly:  Yes, that would annoy me SO much. That said, I’ve just realised this is exactly what I did (unwittingly) to my own fiance this weekend, so thank you for opening my eyes!

i think the only thing i can add to this would be you need to do this for yourself, not for anyone else. if you feel bad with yourself only you can put it right.

im a long distance runner and currently training for a spring marathon, so i know how you feel about not wanting to go out in the dark and cold, but trust me, the hard bit is getting out the door to start with. but just think how much better you’ll feel with yourself once you walk through your front door knowing you’ve been for a run. there are some nights when you dont want to work out or run and just want to stay in but only you can decide how badly you want this.

im sorry that this probably isnt very helpful but its the truth.
