First question I got is I need good tasting lowfat Medifast recipes? Many thanks for any response. Another question I got... I want to say how nice it is when your spouse is supportive. My husband has always been supportive and has never criticized my weight. He just wants me to be healthy. He did a funny (to me at least) thing this week.

I don't think it was quite the same as what will happen to me since he didn't have.

Surgery.

And doesn't have a little pouch. But it was so nice that he tried!.

He said he got a headache the first day and was really hungry. He didn't have his.

Coffee.

(which explains the headache - he needs his.

Coffee.

!!!).

How have your spouses (if you have one) handled your GBS experiences?..

I'm stumped. I'm not so sure what is the answer. I'll do some research and get back to you if I got an useful answer. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably could assist you..

My boyfriend has been very supportive. He didn't push for me to.

Lose weight.

But when I decided, he helped me. Fresh from.

Surgery.

, he would eat when out of my sight. due to a past concussion, I have no sense of smell. so I didn't know when he would cook or eat. I'd get out of the shower and I might see dishes... It was a help, but as I got to regular food, I told him that I wanted to eat together and for the most part regular foods. usually I just have a bit of his..

He also agreed to hide my scales during the first couple of months which was a great help. Nice to know I'm loved no matter my size...

I couldn't have ask for a more supportive husband. He told me at the start to make sure I did this for the right reason and the right person (me).He said if I was oing it to.

Lose weight.

To look better for him he loved me and thought I looked beautiful no matter what size I was. He read up on GBS so he would know what I could have and have it there for me. He don't want to bring anything in the house that I can't have and I have explained to him that I am the one who had.

Surgery.

Not the family. I couldn't have made it thru this without him, while having a torn abdominal muscle he even went to the store and bought me something that looks like a girdle for support and didn't blink an eye. I love him with all my heart..

Thank God I have a very supportive husband, he has been so encouraging to me. He is also morbidly obese but hasn't made the decision to have GBS. I have lost 100 lbs and have feared that he would feel a little jealous. I think I would if he was the one losing. But instead he is always bragging on me and telling me how proud he is of me...

My hubby totally surprised me at how well he took care of me. He waited on me hand and foot, helped me in and out of bed at all hours, and even poop scooped! He did everything! Before.

Surgery.

I couldn't ever get him to poop scoop, now we take turns! He helps more now than he ever has. He is down 20 some lbs too. This has been great for both of us in so many ways! He is my best support!..

I thank God everyday for blessing me with such a WONDERFUL husband. When he gets home from work he takes over. He has been the biggest help ever! He makes dinner for our daughter and himself, he cleans up the mess, does laundry, you name it...he does it. I love him to pieces!!! He went out a few times to find protein drinks for me and asks all of the time what can he do for me. I would love to repay him in some way..

I want to say how nice it is when your spouse is supportive. My husband has always been supportive and has never criticized my weight. He just wants me to be healthy. He did a funny (to me at least) thing this week. He decided to not eat anything for 48 hours and just have clear liquids so he could get an idea of what I might go through. I don't think it was quite the same as what will happen to me since he didn't have.

And doesn't have a little pouch. But it was so nice that he tried!.

Last night she went to Walmart at 9:00 cos we were out of water...My meals are all measured out in the little fridge by my chair. I really never have to go into the kitchen, except when I cook dinner, which I try to do at least a few times a week...

Good God I've got a better shot at my favorite man RD than hooking up with any of you chicks. LOL. It's is nice to see solid relationships. It make me smile.

FYI while Pollyanna is and always has been my greatest cheerleader, I can see how burnt out she gets when the topic always turns towards how well I'm doing. This is a chick who hasn't changed her look since I met her in the 10th grade and she laughed at one of my mean jokes. So I knew thar day I'd marry her and I did 10 years later..

You all are so blessed! You should feel so special that you have significant others at home that are so loving and supportive of you and this crazy journey. Not to sound like I'm having a pity party here, but I have none of that support from my boyfriend (we've been together 6 years). Of course I have the support of my family and friends...but not having the support from the person who claims to love you is rediculously hard and frustrating.....

Well thought my marriage was strong. He was very supportive at first. Then I got below his weight and he got very insecure and went out drinking which he rarely does and cheated on me. He misses his fat ass wife to a point. However likes me thin to. Well buddy can't have your cake and eat it to.

I am not sure if I would be I miss my boobs. We are trying to work it out. However he has become very self center and plain disrespectful and mean. I deserve way better than this. He had no reason for his insecuriites.

I do get tons more attention and I know that bothers him. He should be happy for me not insecure. I am stuck in a way. Want out but want to stay. I lost my job I just got because my uncle died and I attended his funeral.

WTH right before xmas. So my husband was mad because I went to the funeral and lost my job. Then I get there and my aunt tells me she seen him in the bar around the time he cheated and was kissing on someone. Of course he denies it. I feel like such an ass.

I am big hearted and life is to short. Maybe this is all a waste for him..

Hope.

It gets better. I am playing nice for my boys. If my husband knew this is the main reason I am still here he would flip. So living my own lie. Best to the rest of you. Welcome to my nightmare.

We are going to the Bahamas sometime in the next few months. Maybe some time alone will help can't hurt...

I feel that GBS saved my life and my wife was right there for every hurdle and wow moment. Looking back I see that it was not easy and we did have our rough times but it has been over a year now since.

Surgery.

And we are getting back into the flow with each other. I tell her and show her how thankful I am for all her love and support...
