is it wrong??

Monday, February 28, 2011

okay so when i grocery shop i buy healthy foods lean meats, veggies, and fruit for snacks. if there is junk in the house I'm going to be more tempted to eat unhealthy and all i want to do is stay on track..
so my husband is already skinny as can be and he loves junk food, but since I've got serious about losing weight i dont buy it or even want it in the house... so i guess I'm asking is it wrong to not have those kinds of foods in the house for others?? i dont want to be selfish just healthy..

    Make hubby keep his junk food in his car. Out of your sight and free for him to munch. Gee, I think it's the least he can do and the best for you.

    I don't think it is wrong at all. I have nothing but healthy foods in my house. If guest come over and they are hungry I offer snacks like baked Lay's chips, Baked tortilla chips and salsa, or I offer to cook. There are recipes I noticed here that are snack intended so try and make a few of those or offer a full meal. If people bring food say thank you and well take it the next day to work or your families. I've done that a lot LOL. Tell your family especially not to bring food over unless it is healthy and explain to them your version of healthy bc some people don't get it. Hope this helps. emoticon

    Get your husband a lock box and you can forget that anything in it exists. There is temptation all around us everyday. The choices we make are our own and for our own health. There are things around my house that others eat and that I choose not to. I also have things I like that I treat myself with so my diet has some variety and spice. It is all about choices, IMHO and demanding a sterile diet for everyone else does not make me a fun person to be around (any zealot can get on other peoples nerves). So, I choose to strive for a happy medium. One person's junk is another's happy snack.

    I think it is fair to only buy healthy foods. My husband supports me on my journey and understands the temptation that buying them causes. If he wants them, he may get them and have a bit at the office but my house is off limits. Even though your husband is thin, eating healthier is wise for people with or without a weight problem. It helps prevent future problems like high blood pressure and chlorestral that is not limited to overweight people.

Just my opinion but I say buy the good stuff!

    I don't think it's wrong at all. I even asked my family to help me clear the junk food out of the house. I just explained to them almost exactly what you said. If it's in the house, I am going to eat it! After all the support I shower on them, I consider this a small sacrifice! They can eat junk food elsewhere if they like, just not at home please!
