Can I plead the 5th on the food eating thing too?

with one comment

Have you ever tried eating better but still had forbidden foods in the cabinet and refrigerator? You probably thought, “I don’t want that food to go to waste!” I’ve done it every time I’ve recommitted myself to healthier eating … until now.

I enjoy Unclutterer, even when it makes me feel like crap. I’ve done this too, and also as Dad eat whatever is left from everybody else’s plates when the meal is done… this may have something to do with my weight going from 180 after kid #1 to 235 now after kid #3 is two and a half. They propose a “putting it in a bag” to eat in moderation later… I’ve got a few years of historical data showing that if the food is in the house I am going to eat it. I think the better option for me is to get rid of it, or at least get better motivated to leave it for others to eat.

  1. I’m with you – starting back at the gym today. As much as I love accountability with the wife on my workouts, I really need a guy to smack me around when I’m not eating right.

    Another problem I have is that we have an impossibly small pantry door on a full sized pantry. 30″ closet, 18″ door. You can never find anything that’s not right up front, so we waste a lot of food, and since we never seem to have the right thing at the right time we eat more poorly.

    Aubrey rarely cooks (I love to cook, but I love to cook what I love to eat, which means heavy sauces, meat and starches). I know it’s an uphill battle from here but it’s one I need to wage.

    Get rid of that food, man! Donate it if you can, otherwise toss it. Start fresh.
