My husband is on a diet (self-prescribed). He's got a little weight to lose.
A few weeks ago, he announced that he is now "off sweets". Meaning that he doesn't really crave any sweet stuff anymore. He wanted more salty healthy snacks.
I thought ... ok, ok, ok.... cool, cool, cool...
Let's see how this plays out.
When he comes back from grocery shopping, he still brings home some chocolate bars though. He says they are "for me" and he's "not going to touch them". (I do have a sweet tooth and some cravings from time to time.)
I don't mind them lying around. Good to know that they're there, but I didn't feel like eating them just yet.
Today, I actually DID feel like eating some chocolate. To my surprise, the chocolate bar was already have gone. As there are only two people living in this house ... well, you get the point.
If I didn't know it any better I would say my husband is lying to himself a little about not wanting sweets anymore.
I think there's a quote that says "The hardest person to be honest with is yourself."
It's true. It's hard.
I try to pretend that I don't want something, that I don't care about something, that something is not bothering me.
But deep down, I know it's a lie. And eventually, it will come up.
Better be honest immediately.
