I have gotten off track and I have no one to blame but myself. This I know and I take full responsibility! That said, it sure is difficult to remain on task with my diet while still needing to feed a family. I mean, it's just H and difficult child, but still - H is a bread eater...he eats it with every meal. And on top of that, he loves potatos and pastas. And on top of that, he likes to eat out a lot, mostly because I don't cook much during the week. I am beat out by day's end after work and I haven't been very organized lately, so he often wants to run out and grab something. Because of that situation, I am having a hard time sticking with my diet. It's not that restricting, but it is to a degree and it's hard to eat out and not eat foods that I shouldn't really be eating. On the one hand, H is telling me how great I'm doing and how I look great...he even said I was beginning to look a little thick(!!) but that now I look like better. So, I have to get more organized with making meals. For a while I was making HUGE meals and then freezing them for him. That didn't last as he was (IS) never in the mood for what I make. It doesn't seem to matter, he doesn't want what I cook. So, you might say, stop cooking...but that brings me back to the original issue - eating out too much and going off my diet. Anyone else feel derailed from their diets by their family's meal needs??
