I have to take into account DH is older and has had some minor strokes. He prefers to do all the cooking and all of the grocery shopping. Lately, he has discovered that he can get great deals on pastries on the "day old" rack at the store. He is so happy and proud when he is able to bring home these great deals. But HE doesn't eat them. He gets things he knows I will like. I have been putting them in the freezer but now the freezer is half full of tempting diet busters.
Then, yesterday, he gave me a copy of an article on how to eat healthy to combat depression. EVERYTHING IN THE ARTICLE was stuff I have been trying to get through to him to make changes in his cooking and buying!!!! I kept telling myself not to get mad as I read it. Everything! Low fat, whole grains, vegetables, less sugar, avoid processed carbs. Everything! I asked him if he had read it. He said, he read it a long time ago, so I gave it back to him to read.
Then, today, he told me he was three pounds from his goal weight. I could stand to lose 50. He doesn't eat more than a nibble of the sweets he brings home, yet he SAYS he wants me to lose weight and be healthier. ARRRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGHHHH.
Thank you for letting me get that out. He means well, and wants to give me things I will enjoy, but jeepers.
