LA Weight Loss - I was soooo Good!!!

Well, over the weekend, my DH who sometimes NEVER stops to think about what he's doing brought a Strawberry Cheese Cake into the house. :rollpin: He said to me "After all, You're the one on a diet, why should I have to suffer?".:censored: .. OMG... it was hard, but I resisted temptation. :encore: NO cheese cake for me until I get down to my goal weight, and THEN I'll have to think hard about it.

Oh my Joan - I think I would've definitely given him some cheesecake but not exactly the way he expected it!! But good for you - glad you could say no - that is a wonderful NSV!!!!! I believe sometimes that is exactly what it takes to make us strong and stay that way!!

Sometimes DH's are not so dear, huh? Way to say no. I wonder if DH is feeling a little jealous of your weight loss? If he keeps up this kind of stuff, you may need to have a heart to heart with him about your diet, why you want to loose weight, and how much his support would mean to you.

My husband did something similar- about a week into this "journey" to my goal weight- he called me at work and told me a few people at work brought their kids Girl Scout Cookie order forms and wanted to know which cookies I wanted! I almost lunged through the phone at him. I said "none- thank you." He then proceeded to read to me all of the choices in detail. I was so mad!! But did not order any- and if he brings the ones he did home I plan on stomping on them and pouring them over his head!! :devil:
Husbands can be so insensative sometimes!! :dizzy:

I REALLY went off on my husband one time for a similar situation involving M&Ms and a bag of potato chips. He brought in the family size of each. I started crying and even slammed an upstairs door, saying he's sabotaging me and the like. I was PMS'ing in case you haven't put that part of the story together yet ;)
Anyway, he realized I was serious at that point, and he hasn't done too much to tempt me since (he did bring in a gallon of ice cream yesterday, but that was my bad for making chocolate chunk brownies to relieve my cramps :rolleyes:

Katie, they do get nervous when you start losing weight, I think. They know in their head you aren't going to leave them just because you wear smaller pants, but I think the real kicker is that they don't want to see you be skinny and be reminded that they are bigger than they should be. It's easier to have a chunky wife and not worry about your health than to have a skinny one who is constantly showing you what you probably SHOULD be doing. Also, they probably don't people to look at you as a mismatched couple...I know I hate even going out with my husband when I am frumped out and he is in his business attire, and that is just clothing.

I've never posted here before.. hi, my name is Nicole. :dizzy:
My hubby has learned to support me, finally, but it's taken almost 2 whole years and accompanying me to the doctor a couple of times. I have to follow a food plan for health reasons in addition to needing to lose weight, because I'm allergic to some things. My hubby now asks me if I can have this or that and if I can't it goes into a special cupboard that is for him and my daughter. I don't have to look at it except when I retreive one treat food that I keep up there.
Ya'll sound like an awesome group of ladies!

Thanks everyone. It wasn't easy, and there were a couple of times that I was REALLY tempted. :o But then I asked myself...
"Is that going to taste anywhere near as good as thin feels????"
That did it for me. :D

:welcome: - So glad your DH has decided to support you - that is wonderful!! Mine does a pretty good job himself - he still enjoys his foods as long as it doesn't bother me -
