PROBLEM #4: How can you help someone else with their New Year’s diet while still maintaining your own.
How are your New Year’s Resolutions going? Did you or someone you love resolve to lose weight or diet? The PROBLEM can be supporting them while you or others in your family are not on said diet. What should you do?
I would do almost anything to help her.
- I don’t need or want to lose weight.
- I don’t like kale, brown rice, tofu, quinoa . . . .
- I love desserts and sweets.
But, – I love my wife, so much that I would do almost anything to help her in her endeavors. I’m just not willing to eat the “healthy” food. . . at least not at this stage in my life. She has decided that she needs to diet to preserve her girlish figure and overall health. So I’ve come up with a way to support her in her “meal plan” lifestyle without actually taking part in all the delightful, green dishes.
I eat the leftover desserts and sweets in the pantry and the fridge. When new goodies come into the house, I immediately, and this is of the utmost importance, commandeer said pastries, candy, or sugary foods. That way, she is not tempted to deviate from her healthy “meal plan”, while I relish in the opportunity to enjoy some desserts. I’ve decided to “take one for the team” as they say. I guess you could say, “I get to have my cake, and eat it too.”
What do you think? Would this solution work in your house? Truthfully – it doesn’t actually work that well in my house either. Sigh . . . Oh well.
