So as I posted already today, my son came over to help his father to clean up the back yard. He had to bring the 3 kiddos with him for obvious reasons and the same obvious reasons he had to feed them. So while him and DH were out taking the 4 tires from the back yard to a recycle facility they stopped by the local pizza place and brought them home pizzas. Well as you can figure, my DH thought that since we had a free for all last night, then it could carry on over into today.......
I tried deep breaths, but REALLY? Ever tried deep breathing in a house with 3 pizzas?
So I cried my pitty tears for the last few minutes (silently), and decided to be (YES) a little irritated at the DH, and remember that DH isn't the issue here and shouldn't be deprived of having pizza which just happens to be 1 of our favorite foods. I have the problem, NOT THEM. I need to grow up, buck up, and get over this infatuation I have with food.
FOOD IS FUEL! I need to pick the right octane for my engine (ME) and use it to get healthy and if not now, then eventually get happy!

    Great job at being strong. I know some people argue that when someone in a household is on a diet, all the house should follow their restrictions. I've never been of that point of view. People have to choose for themselves and they have to be able to choose not to have something that's in front of them that's not good for them. The world throws all sorts of curves at us and we have to be as ready as we can be. Fast food and junk food won't go away because we're changing our lifestyle. It's us who have to change, and it sounds like you're changing for the better all the time.

    Be strong friend. We all have to learn to say no sometimes and watch others eat those foods we love. Pizza used to be one of my faves too......then I worked in a pizza joint for 1 month, that is all it took for me to get to the point that I can walk away from pizza if i want to. As a matter of fact, I didn't eat pizza for about 15 years before I could handle the smell of it again LOL You could do the same thing by sitting in apizza joint or just outside of it for long stretches of time every day LOL
