****mr.right is also mr.insensitive****

Thursday, December 27, 2012

I just came home from a hardcore Zumba class and Derrell says he is hungry. I have no intentions of cooking and he says he is going to run to McDonalds. I haven't had McDonald's in nearly eight months and I don't necessarily miss it or think about it. HOWEVER, the smell of their fries will make me lose all my morals. Considering that Derrell is my soulmate and biggest supporter, I would have thought he would have eaten his Big Mac and supersized fry downstairs where I would not be tempted. Nope. As I was in the shower I hear him in our bedroom. As I exit the shower, I immediately smell fries. Once the fry smell is in the air, there is no removing it. I expressed to him that it would have been nice of him to have eaten his food somewhere where I wouldn't smell it. Since that didn't happen, I grabbed some Garlic Parmesan Pretzel Crisps and pretended they were McDonald's fries. My stomach knew the truth.

    Remember that others may not have the "willpower" that we do at the exact same time. Also that it may have not been insensitivity, but rather forgetfulness, routine, or something else. I could be accused of insensitivity when it's actually forgetfulness. GREAT JOB RESISTING THOSE FRIES!!! I LOVE THEM TOO!

    My Husband was overweight as a kid, although he's a hunk now, so he can relate to my struggles. He always struggled to weigh low enough to play in his age division for football as a youngster.

    He is getting better about not bringing home junk. When he was bringing the junk home, I gained six pounds in about one to two weeks. It's so hard to resist junk food...especially,...well...ANYTHIN
    G! LOL.

    I used to get mad at him but I would still eat the junk. Then somehow he accepted that to be supportive of me, he has to not bring it home. When he does bring it home, smaller quantities are easier for me to deal with bc they get eaten by him...or if I end up eating it, at least it's only the smaller amount of junk. As in, get a pint of ice cream instead of a half gallon. Get 2 candy bars, don't even tell me about them, and hide them in the freezer behind the "regular" food (he likes his candy bars frozen); that works well unless I discover the junk.

    We have been replacing junk with fruit, but we're not always successful, and I'm often guilty of junking, too.

    Yeah, my favorite foods are McDonald's french fries as well as ice cream. My favorite healthful foods are nectarines, pears, and bananas, so we try to have that available instead of junk.

    I went four and a half months without eating any restaurant food and then ended up eating McDonald's, which I used to really like. I thought it was nasty! The burger had no flavor but grease and the fries were so salty that it felt like it was burning my tongue. Yuck! It smelled great, though! I would imagine, if you had caved and taken a bite, you would have been very unpleasantly surprised! Congrats on not caving in, though! I wish I could say the same for myself!!

    This happens to me tooo!!!!

    My fiance came to bed, yes in the bed with cheesecake one night! Uggggh! When I told him that was insensitive, he asked "what did you want me to eat it in the bathroom" no, but the kitchen where I wasn't sitting would have been nice.

    Then he brought home Chipotle one day with Tortilla chips- my big weakness, and ate them while I was on the computer on sparkpeople.

    So I know the feeling!

    You are stronger than me! I would've stolen some of those fries!
    I can resist many things but the smell of french fries is totally my downfall. Brownies have the sam effect.

    This sounds like my husband! But I have learned that it is hard to loose weight when everyone else around you is still eating regular. Im sure this isnt the last time he will do this so just keep on moving forward and stay strong.
