I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    Roni – I love your honest opinions and advice with relationships and weight loss. My guy is supportive in my journey and on my weigh in day – we would order out after – but we have now compromised and make “take-out” in whether it is chicken tacos with lots of veggies or pizza or subs. But I love your honesty in your relationship because we all go through the same thing. Thanks for all your awesomeness in recipes and advice.

    I love the question about living with people who don’t eat the same. I don’t think you need to “apologize” for changing; most people stop acting like college kids when they’re out of college, especially if their spouse is there to support that. I don’t know if it’s hard for him because you’re so far ahead of his game. Like maybe if you focussed on how much he’s also changed (you mention that he likes brussels sprouts and encouraged Little Guy to eat cabbage I think it was.) and not on how far he still is from where you are?

    It’s not that it’s hard for him, he just has no interest. And I agree, I don’t need to apologize for my lifestyle but neither does he. We are both adults and make our own decisions. I don’t think he’s has to change a thing and maybe I didn’t express that well in my response. Would I love him to be a little healthier? Of COURSE! I think it’s in his best interest but unless he wants to change he won’t. All I can do is lead by example and take care of myself.

    My hubby is adjusting right now to the amount of meals I am wanting to cook and eat at home, compared to the amount of meals we used to eat out at restaurants. It helps that the meals are turning out really tasty, but he still misses the “atmosphere” of restaurant-dining. I think I just have to clean up the kitchen, light some candels, and play some music to fix the problem, though. :)

    My husband and I received a lot of chocolates and other treats as Christmas gifts. Without asking me, he threw them all away. I was really surprised, but when I questioned him he said, “I thought I was doing the right thing. I know you don’t want that stuff in the house.” I’m still surpised that he did that, but I guess I’m grateful he knows how important my environment is to me.

    Great stuff Roni! I agree with you that the key to your partner eating junk is to find things they like that is not a trigger for you. It might take a few tries to see what works but its very doable. My hubby also has a drawer I stock with his treats. You will know right away if something is a trigger, like the peanut butter balls I made hubby this weekend, big mistake! :)
