I am not my mother.

Monday, February 04, 2013

I told my husband today that I really needed him to do me a favor and take the Nestle's Tollhouse Ultimate Chocolate Chip Pecan cookies he had made and hide them from me. Put them in his truck, somewhere....because I was just too weak to resist.
He reponded, "Ok, Gail." With a snide look. Gail was my mom. Before she died of ovarian cancer, she battled weight issues. Up and down all her life. She couldn't stop eating once she got started...like a whole package of pralines or fudge, for example. Within a day or two, the package would be nothing but crumbs.
Not very nice of him to call me my mother, eh?
I responded by honestly telling him that I had a real problem and really needed his support. But I really felt like kicking him the bootie. I told him that one day I hoped to be able to resist the temptation to grab and eat those cookies, but for now I am very weak and needed his help.

    There is always the option of ... throwing them in the trash ... I know. But it's not like some starving child in (name the third world country) will miss them.

    Why is it as a woman all we have to do is inhale something and you can feel the weight just add on to your butt and men can eat and eat and not gain a pound.
    You do need his support and sounds like you should sit him down and make it clear that you need his help more then ever. I don't think he should of called you by your mom's name, but some guys just think that they are joking and don't understand when our feelings get hurt. I'm sure he's a nice guy and didn't mean anything , men don't stop and think before they speak most of the time hahahaha.
    Good luck on your journey and kudos to you for knowing you couldn't resist the temptation and you spoke up and had him put them away! emoticon
