...is NOT my friend when it comes to trying to change my eating lifestyle. He sabotaged me AGAIN last night, knowing full well I have a goal I want to reach before I see Joanie (the diabetes doc) on July 9th. Truth is, that was a revelation to me. I've often read articles that say some spouses don't want their partners to lose weight for several reasons. I guess he's one of those partners.
Question today is, so what am I going to do about it? Saying no to going out socially is going to cause issues, but the truth is, even when I make GOOD food choices when we go out to eat, my weight STILL goes up. I miss doing those things with friends when I say no, and in some ways it FEELS like I am isolating myself. But even if we invite someone over to play cards, we gotta have beer and snacks! And the truth is I have NO self-control.
Dr. Phil got it right on the money when he said if you don't want to be tempted, don't have it in the house. It's self-defeating. This is the SAME issue I have at church during fellowship time.
So obviously I need to explore that whole self-control issue, but I truthfully don't know where to start to sort that out and deal with it... I think it's going to be a rotten day today...
