Does anyone else have this problem? My daughter and I were comparing notes. I'm not going to say whose spouse did what to protect the innocent (or guilty...ha-ha). But between us, we both have spouses who claim to be VERY supportive of our weight loss efforts. Most of the time they are. They're always there with a "congrats" when the scale goes now and a pat on the back when something goes wrong.
But between us, the following has happened/been said:
"Come on, let's go get doughnuts. One won't hurt you!"
"Let's go out for lunch." "No, honey, I don't have the calories." "Oh, it's just one meal."
"Is that salad all you're going to order?"
They put ice cream in the cart.
They act as if it is a personal affront if you make a healthy meal for BOTH of you to eat instead of making two separate dinners.
"You look fine. Just eat what you want on vacation and worry about it when you get back." (Never mind that vacation last TWO WEEKS!!!!)
"It's the holidays."
"Come on, just have a bite." (Of the most fattening food in the world).
So, I have a question for you guys....do your friends or spouses do this to you?
How do you deal with it?
I really don't want to kill him, I kind of like him (ha-ha), but me and my daughter are both about at our wits ends!
p.s. If I get some good responses, I'll do a follow up blog with solutions for everyone to read!
