My guy is picky too ( and very skinny). He will not touch any vegetables. Here's an example of what we are having for dinner tonight.

I am going to bake some chicken breasts.

His: chopped up chicken breast mixed in with egg noodles and a jar of alfredo sauce. (this will feed him for 2 nights)

Mine- chicken breast and a bag of frozen veggies (cauliflower, asparagus, onion, carrots and green beans- $1.30 a bag/ 150 calories)

I'm on a budget too. so i keep it simple and cheap.


Weight loss is accomplished with the mind.

A person who wants something WILL find a way....a person who doesn't will find an excuse.

Which do you prefer?
The pain of self discipline?....or...the pain of self regret?

Hi everyone! I'm asking for help with a problem that I've been dealing with since my husband and I got married.

You see, my husband is one of those lucky ducks that is just *naturally* skinny, so I am the only one in the house that is trying to lose weight. My husband doesn't mind healthy food, but he is really picky (no eggs, milk, cheese, yogurt, veggies other than corn, broccoli, and green beans for this guy!) & is set in what likes and doesn't like (or what he THINKS he doesn't like). He also STAYS hungry.

I guess my question/problem is that I really want to try new and healthy foods to help myself lose weight, but yet satisfy my husband's appetite too. Does anyone have any tips or have been in this situation before? I also just lost my job, so money is REALLY tight around here & we just don't have the money for me to cook 2 different meals each time.
