First off, let me say that I love my inlaws. They are great to me and I love them very much.
DH and I are going to visit them starting this Friday for 6 days. The problem is that my inlaws never cook. I can only remember a hand full of times that we actually ate in their kitchen over the last 13 years, even when we lived only a few miles away.
They will often eat 3 meals a day out! I could handle some dinners out, I can certainly go on vacation and eat okay on my own - but their restaurant choices are not healthy ever. Even when DH or I suggest something a little healthier, they just want to go to their favorites. We offer to cook, and they refuse the offer.
They know that I am eating healthy, but have the mentality that this is a vacation, so it's okay.
The thing that is scariest to me, is that I plateaued at almost exactly the weight I am at now and got stuck there for months and months.
The only saving grace is that we are staying at MIL's parent's house (while they are in Florida), so I am hoping that we can buy some groceries and cook some of our own meals.
I know this is stupid and silly, but I can't help it. I want to enjoy our visit with them, and not be so worried about food and my weight!!
