For several years I have struggled with my weight and recently had weight loss surgery. easy child was sent to a nutritionist because she has issues with weight. We attended her nutrition appointment yesterday and given some basics to help with the situation. They are really no different than my guidelines and so I agreed with the nutritionist that we could attempt to make the following changes: easy child will ensure we have veggies of her choice prepped at each meal We will remove junk food from the house We will make a menu Now let me give you some background. I DO NOT buy junk food for the house! difficult child and the hubby buy it when they shop. We have veggies at all meals I cook. We have had a menu in previous years but I have recently gotten away from it due to a new plan I had with difficult child. Also difficult child has been doing the grocery shopping and cooking as part of the plan mentioned above. This is because she complains about my ability to shop, cook, clean, well lets just say I never do anything to her standards. So I decided to let her see how difficult it was to work all day and do housework all night. Granted my plan failed because she loves being in control of the food and getting what she wants. But hey give me some credit at least I had a plan. LOL Now back to the nutrition plan: I tried to talk to the difficult child about it last night and let her know how much her sister and I needed her support to help us maintain a healthy weight. I explained that we would work a chip day into the menu and a desert day into the menu (the idea is not to never have them just limit them appropriately.) difficult child basically proceeded to call us fat lazy asses who need to exercise more. She feels that she is being punished because we are fat. When I brought up the menu she was ******! She did not like the idea of not being able to dictate what was cooked. I was so frustrated and easy child was just miserable. I mean hell her big sister (who is a size 2) just called her a lazy piece of **** and made her feel two inches tall. We have bent over backwards to support difficult child including putting up with her evil moods. Yet when we ask for simple support with not having chips, soda, and ice cream in the house we are total es who are completely unreasonable. ARGH!!!!! Will she ever grow up and realize that it is important to support the people around you even when it means you have to bend a little bit?
