My husband just does NOT understand.
He’s one of those who can eat and eat and eat and not worry about it. Let’s also add that he walks about 6-7 miles a day on his job. Weight for him has never ever been a battle and he love love loves food.
We met family tonight from out of town for dinner. At a pizza joint. I asked him if I had to go (I knew it was going to be torture for me-I’m just not quite there yet). He made a big deal about it so, of course I went.
I ended up eating a about a 1/4 of a chicken Cesar salad wrap which was really delicious. But I was really really thirsty the whole time and of course couldn’t drink anything. And surrounded by such ooie-gooie goodness of pizza and garlic knots all around me. I was miserable. I was really trying not to be – just ignore the food and carry on… But really I was.
My husband got a little pissy with me after we left and was like, what is wrong with you-you’re acting all bleh and down!
Really. He just doesn’t understand. And I guess he won’t for as long as I am not used to this either.
Other than being thirsty as everything, I was satisfied with my meal. Just, I don’t know, maybe the feeling of being forbidden from something..??
I keep correcting everyone that knows when they say “can you have that?” My answer is “I can have anything I want, I just choose to make a better choice.” Making those choices are definitely forced right now, true.
I am excited for the day when they are natural choices and not a psychological battle.
NSV- today I am able to get my wedding band off! I haven’t been able to get it off in almost a year! Woo hoo! 🙂
