Now back to our original schedule

Well, despite the weekend, despite the set-backs, despite worrying about eating not enough or too much, and despite realising that without eating large amounts of processed food (I mostly cook from scratch) my sodium intake can be 4 TIMES what it should be.
Thank you all for the kind words and the advice, and yes I did go to talk to the boy about the fact his behaviour was counter productive, and also if he wants to marry me someday (as he permanently claims he does, in between bouts of jerkiness) he needs to show me that he can be a good partner and put me first when needed, and treat me with respect (or like a princess..whichever is easier LOL) and be there for me in sickness, in health, etc at ALL TIME.
That felt good. It was not an argument, it was a fair request and I think he sees that.
He loves my cooking, so getting him to eat the same as me has not been difficult (I just add extra treats to his lunch box or buy nibbles I don't like for him) and every now and again I manage to pull him away from his pc to take a walk so I can make myself go too!
As for the calories, for now I will stick to SP's recommended allowance because I would rather lose the weight at an impossibly slow pace but without feeling deprived. I will however maybe look at exercising more...
So thanks to you all I have not giving up and will stick to it no matter how long it takes.
Today is another day!
