Hello there and welcome back, I am 76 and a yo yo weight gainer !!!!! Or I was until I decided that if I didn't stop gaining weight I would not live to see my beautiful Granddaughters grow up .
I started the 5:2 vegan diet and WOW ! It works . I save 1 day as a treat day when I indulge in something sinful but not too sinful . I love chocolate so that is my treat and I have just 4 squares . I think that maybe you could say to your husband that although you thank him you will save the cake for a " treat day" and maybe freeze them to have something to give to guests when you need to or maybe even the birds !!!! Please try not to give in to temptation ands eat them yourself !!!
You will get bucket loads of encouragement here if you want it so keep on trying .
I wish you success.
Blessed be.

hi :) my name is kim. i was on here back in 2010 and then have been back on and off since then. i lost a lot of weight on spark people and slowly went back to my old habits (darn junk food! & emotional eating) - and have gained some weight back. i am here for once and for all. i am not going to give up on myself this time. this time is different.

i am totally convinced that my husband is trying to mess me up ... but you know... he doesn't make me eat anything... i am responsible for everything that i eat. i feel just frustrated watching him buy the things that i love and cannot really eat if i'm tracking my calories. just today - we were in tim hortons & he bought a pretzel bagel and a tea biscuit ... in hopes that i would eat the pretzel bagel. really? i didn't ask him to buy me anything.... i guess he just "assumed" that i would eat it. oh, and the other day - he brought home something from dairy queen... i looked on the nutritional label - and it said "1130 calories". omg! how can i *not* feel like he is trying to get me to go further up the scale when he does things like that? :(

i used to weigh 405 pounds. i was not a happy person. in 2010 - when i logged on here - i decided to ditch the junk food, diet pop/soda and go to the gym. i got my weight down to 250 pounds. then, i had some stuff happen & being an emotional eater - i turned back to my good ol' friends ... cupcakes and cookies. right now i'm at 303 pounds. i don't *want* to go back up to 405 pounds. i just feel like if i started eating the things my husband buys me (as treats/surprises) i would see 405 pounds on my scale in no time. it is so frustrating and i have told him how i feel about it. i just don't understand why he does what he does. :(

well, i have said a lot.. if you want to drop by my page ... feel free ;) and i am looking for online support... because clearly i don't have very much of a support system at home at all. i will return the favor and be your support line too (if you need one!).

thanks for reading my bio/intro :) have a nice night (or day) :)
