We are in limbo about whether or not we are going to move. DH really wants to and I do not. He has been pushing about it lately.

Also, he is what you might call an "enabler" when it comes to food.

Every time I turn around, he is bringing home a pizza or wanting to go to a movie and getting a big bucket of buttered popcorn and sodas.

Seems like it's worse if I tell him I'm back on my plan and don't want to be de-railed. If he wants to go out to dinner and I say no, he acts like a hurt puppy and makes me feel bad.

Gosh, now that I'll have him around every single day, all the time, I'm afraid my nice calm DDs will be messed up...
Gosh, Yam-Yam, are you married to my DH?

Actually, mine retires at the end of January. And he can and does cook...which is a huge help to me keeping on track.

Maybe we can start a separate 'Adjusting to having better half hanging around all the time' thread? Maybe there is a 'surviving spousal retirement' forum out there somewhere!

GOAL 10/3/12
Still at goal 2/6/13
Changed to LCHF after becoming diabetic in 9/13 (Lost 15 more pounds).
STILL below goal 11/21/15

I did not "lose" weight. I evicted it. It is gone and it ain't coming back!

JUDDD cares about calories. JUDDD does not care what you eat. Your body probably does.
