My biggest diet sabotage is my spouse. I control the shopping and the menu. He brings in food that are triggers for me, hotdogs and pizza). I choose to eat them. Sometimes, he is not even home when I am eating them. ( i tend to binge at night, when no one is awake or home.) I've asked him not to buy them, not to bring them home but he continues. part of the problem is that I am inconsistent and I do eat them. I've tried to explain the whole addict thing, but he doesn't believe in food as an addiction. Today's Sparkcoach lesson was on how to deal with the sabotage. She suggested professional help, and while it might be a good idea, there is no way I can put that on his plate. We just started a small business ( a daycare) and he works 15 hour days. Some nights he sleeps there. It leaves all the rest of the family stuff to me, the driving and delivery, the yardwork, the housework. I think I need to come up with a different plan, one that I control. So since I have asked him not to and he keeps buying them, I am going to ask that he wrap them in foil, so I don't see them. Or I will wrap them in foil. Or keep them in the freezer so there not accessible. I'm open to any other ideas. I need to stop the binging, and I've made progress, last night I stopped, thought about what I was about to do and re-framed it to a choice. Next time, I need to walk away and make a better choice.
