stop overeating...

Saturday, May 19, 2018

It is hard to not eat junk that my husband buys. He knows I am trying to eat better. I carefully buy healthy food. He goes to the store and buys a whole bunch of snacks. So, if they are in here I will eat them. Can't stay away. I realize I can't just blame him for my problem and lack of self control. I do feel sabotaged by him though. I do feel he is not realizing that having these foods in the house is too hard for me to resist. And little by little I get into them. Does he secretly want me to fail? Is he simply buying things he wants to eat and I consider them bad choices? I think he would say just don't eat them. :0(

    Is there a way you can move the snacks out of your sight (like way up on top of a cabinet for ex.)? Then, when your husband asks where they are, you can tell him not to get them any more or to hide them because they are unhealthy and too tempting.

    It's definitely hard when you live with someone who is not on board with your new goals. I have the same problem at my house. I just try to remember my Why when I am tempted. You need a strong statement on Why you want to make changes.
