    Maybe he's trying to be helpful in a blokey way...

    When I say I fancy something, my mum's partner always says "well you'll never lose weight if you eat that" - I think he's just trying to be motivational and helpful.. Still pisses me off though, but I try and look at it that at least he's not trying to saboutage my weight loss :D

    I got really mad at my Dad the other day when I'd had a really shitty day and was setting off to get myself some fish and chips. He was all "well, if you think that's a good idea..." and I got mad but it stopped me getting them, had some grilled chicken instead, and after an hour or so I felt really glad he'd stopped me!

    He really prob does think he is being supportive and helpful.... and in fairness if he came home with a dominos for you, you'd be annoyed cause he is tempting you.

    I know how you feel though my mum used to do that all the time, saying you shouldn't be eating that or start again tomorrow etc.... thinking she was being helpful but really it made me feel like eating it more just to spite her!! (lol i must have issues) but i really wanted to do things on my terms and didn't needed someone else reminding me of what needed to be done.

    It always amuses me the ways in which our lovely families think they are helping us!

    My doctor who wants me to lose weight used this nice little anecdote to spur me on - He and his wife had recently had a baby and all his wife would do was complain about how her baby weight wasn't shifting. So at every meal she'd dish her plate up and he'd take it straight off her, remove half of the food and hand it back to her.

    Now if I was her, I don't think I'd be too ecstatic but she DID lose the weight and quickly too. As he says, you don't get fat in a famine and if you ARE overweight, there's not really such thing as too small a portion (provided it's balanced food, not tat)

    Just glad he's only my Doctor, not my husband!

    Yeah - I try not to say to anyone when I am offered some thing that I can't have it because I am on a diet the automatic answer is oh yes you can etc. I just say no thanks and if they carry on just say I don't fancy it at the moment. In fact I don't even share that I am on a diet except to a few trusted people. It's like a red rag to a bull for a lot of people.

    I find peoples ignorance really annoying. The great thing about WW is that -nothing- is out of bounds. So if I decide after 5 days, I've saved 3 points every day, and I want a curry - I bloody well will have one and I will STILL lose weight.

    Everyone just assumes when you're on a diet, -everything- that is *nice* is not an option.

    UGH!

    I made a chicken korma last week and someone at work was saying, what, you can have that? Well, yes! I cooked it out of the ww cook book and it was lovely! The same nurse then made me buttered toast in the morning which i politely refused. I get the feeling that she might be a bit jealous because she's been saying for ages that she wants to lose weight.

    It does suck but if you have pp's left then you could have a slice so long as it's pointed. x
