DEALING WITH SABOTAGE

Thursday, April 04, 2013

Today's Spark Coach hit on something very personal to me. I do have the SWEETEST hubby in the world, who only cares about me & wants me to enjoy whatever he is eating.

1) I will be firm and consistent on being nice to reply "no thank you dear"

2) Another good way to to turn down offers "I'm so full can't eat another bite".

3) If it is out of sight then it will be no problem.

4) I have learned now to enjoy a night time snack of only 1/2 cup of frozen yogurt (my fave is Publix peanut butter cup)......will enjoy!!!!!

I've learned to just - KILL THE DIET SABOTAGE WITH KINDNESS!!!!

    What type of Jelly Beans does Lee love? I might send him some that he will not want to share because they are so big.

    congrats on the half a pound...this something I really needed help with too. He is not supposed to eat chips but does anyway When he brings them home he brings me something too so that he doesn't feel alone in being bad. guess I should stash it for grandkids but they don't come over very often. 3 of them work and the other is in school. Actually 2 are in school but he works and graduates this year.

    That usually takes care of it so stick with it. That is the kindest way to say no.

    Good job! Some folks just don't understand what they are doing-some do understand it and can't handle your success. Those are the type I tell that if I eat anything else I'll throw up. No one seems to want to deal with that. lol Keep up the good work.

    I call them the "Food Pushers." They do not mess with me now, but years ago when I first gave up sweets, at every family gathering, I would hear, "Try just one tiny bite," or "One bite won't hurt you!" I began using the "I'm allergic to that," the same as CRAZYDOG mentioned. Actually, I AM allergic to it. I KNOW "ONE BITE" won't hurt me, but what 'sugar addict' wants just ONE BITE? We want the WHOLE THING!!!!!!

    When someone persists, I just say, "That's so sweet of you to offer (XYZ), but I'm allergic to that." Shuts 'em right up!

    Great strategies and good luck! HUGS

    Good for you! My DH is also very kind and caring but sometimes wants to go out and eat or get something while we are out and I find it hard to refuse him! Wishing you lots of success!!!
