Who Do I Eat For & Why?

Wednesday, June 19, 2013

I went to a coworker's Retirement Event after work. They had simple finger food: cheese, crackers, veggies, dip, etc. I ate enough to fit into my daily plan.

Then, I went home.

My husband had cooked dinner. I told him that I'd already eaten and to put the food in a container and I'd eat it for lunch at work. He threw a fit. Pissing, moaning, trying to do me a favor and I'm an ingrate.

So, to avoid strife, I ate a second dinner. Now I feel sick. GOD, I HATE THE SOCIAL AND EMOTIONAL PRESSURE OF FOOD!!!!!

    That is hard. Eat 1/2 cup full. Hopefully that will put a smile on his face. emoticon

    It's really tough to deal with the emotional baggage of food. Have you talked with your husband about how important this is to you?

    Girl I hear you. It is continuous battle. Men like being in charge but the trick is to learn to work around them. Mine tries the same. Some times I refuse and something I don't. If offered food I say thanks but I'll have it later. Mine keeps on me at buying a foot long hot dog I refuse. They also like there egos strokes. IE WOW you cooked this for me thanks...I've already eaten but I'll have just one bite because I already eaten. You can help me eat more tomorrow. etc. You will figure how to train your man but it will not be easy. LOL!

    I see Mr Tim below has not learned a thing. emoticon

    My husband is the same kind of controlling person. He cooks and leaves his mess for me to clean up.

    I have done that to my wife. When I got in a more rational mood, she explained the way things worked for her. But she didn't eat it to make me happy.

    Now I cook it and if she won't eat it it's her loss.

    Because I am a damned good cook.
