Yes, that's the hardest part! I'll be trying to eat chicken and veggies, while he's eating pasta. He is picky so he doesn't like alot of things that I make, he thinks its too healthy for him. He just started working later hours so I will be eating alone more often which is good for my diet, but other than that not as good :/

Good luck keeping up your healthy eating with the other temptations though. Do you guys eat dinner together? That's another thing that can be tricky...trying to make healthy dinners that someone who is not trying to eat healthy will like. I'll try new recipes and he'll complain that they're too bland or healthy tasting.
I live with my boyfriend and it definitely can be a struggle sometimes to stay away from his food.
It probably helps that I do all the grocery shopping, so I can semi control what gets brought into the house. I'll only buy junky food if he specifically asks for it or is something that's not a bad temptation for me - like his Mountain Dew. He drinks tons of the stuff so it's always in the fridge, but its just not appealing to me.
You could also try a separate cupboard just for your food (if you have the space) I find I'm more likely to snack on bad food if I'm always staring it down. If I don't even have to open that door, I won't have to face the temptation.
Hey Everyone! My name is Sara and I just joined SP a few days ago :) I'm really excited about joining, everyone seems so supportive of one another! I moved in with my boyfriend a few months ago and have unfortunately taken on his bad eating habits. I have been trying to diet and work out, but it's been hard to stop eating bad foods when they are always right infront of me! I need motivation! Maybe some advice from other members can help me along?
