I know how you feel! I definitely put on weight when FI and I moved in together. Have you talked to him about bringing junk food into the house? I know I wouldn’t be able to resist all of the carbs and sweets. Ask if you could incorporate some healthier choices and try to limit junk food in the house. FI and I did that, and he lost a few pounds too. 🙂

When I’m hungry at night (usually when I crave pizza/chocolate), I ask myself if I am truly hungry. If I’m not, I wait until morning. 

Do you count calories? It works well for me because I’m able to work in delicious treats in while losing weight. Also remember, the food will be there tomorrow. No need to overeat — trust me though, I know it is tough!

My FI travels for work, so I understand how easy it is to stick to a diet when hes away, and the opposite when hes home!  I will do things like make turkey meatballs with pasta, but eat my meatballs with spaghetti squash instead.  Or I make turkey tacos, but eat mine with a lettuce wrap instead of a flour tortilla.  Or, I make burgers/ pulled pork but eat mine over lettuce and serve him a bun. it requires very little extra effort and keeps both of us happy.  I really recommend skinnytaste.com for healthy recipes that taste great on their own, but can also be made with their full-calorie versions for your FI (as described above).  Hope this helps!

Don’t feel bad for eating bad foods, in fact abstaining altogether is worse than having an occasional snack. I agree with bridebee13, make all the tasty food he wants nug switch done items for healthier versions and give yourself a slightly smaller portion.

oh and if you don’t already add some exercise into your day, there are tons of free videos online! You might find that you can maintain you weight with exercise and still eat some junk food that ypu crave. 🙂

souza_2005:  lol I gained weight by trying to eat like my husband too! He just are so much and I didn’t think he looked different so I joined in and bam! 20 pounds! >.>.  I’ve lost about 5-7 pounds already though, and DH chimes in “imagine how much you’d have lost if we didn’t eat out last weekend” lol. The weekends when he’s home are the worst (for my diet) since I just want to snuggle, eat with him and not work out! But I’ve gotten a bit better, if he eats something yummy I’ll indulge every now and then but with smaller portions. It helps keeps my cravings in check.

It sounds like you’re putting a fair amount of physical activity in. Have you thought that perhaps you’re not losing drastically or you feel your gaining perhaps because your body is substituting some fat for muscle, in light of your increase in exercise?

Just a thought! 🙂

to me it doesnt sound like you are on diet, just eating clean. Which is perfect for the body esp if you train.

have you asked your husband if he would consider trying to eat like you? in my previous relationship i looked horrible, since i am with my FI i am in my best shape ever. We help each other because he knows be not following good “diet” ends up in me very unhappy…

 

alsp, i do les mills too so i know how body changes and you should start using measuring tape instead of a scale! I am 110 (heaviest 118) lb but i can be 110 and “110” and looking totally different (2cm extra on when cheating)

I have had similar trouble of having my routine disrupted. It’s so easy to say “oh I’ll just eat whatever today and start over tomorrow” and then just keep backsliding… I have recently stopped keeping track of the scale and have started measuring inches instead, since my goal is to look slimmer. I started doing higher intensity workouts and I noticed a difference right away, which inspires me to eat better. My fiancé ears much larger portions than I do but I’m the only one who cooks and we eat whatever I feel like making, so I started doing more chicken and fish with two differen veggies instead of a veggie and a starch. Hopefully we can stay on the wagon!
