fulenn #2 son has always been sensitive to peer pressure and things like that. He first started going off his diet, when going out to eat with friends. Then he passed his military PT re-test, and decided to go off it for a month or so.
He posts his running times and distances on facebook with some app. I've noticed that his distances are getting shorter and his speed is slowing down. Thursday night he rode his motorcycle to our house, so he could go with the Wife and I to a viewing (relative of a friend). I made sure I had enough time to cook dinner after I got home, before we left for the viewing. We stopped on the way, and him and the Wife got fried chicken to eat in the car. I told him if he had let me know, I would have cooked enough dinner for him. He said he liked fried chicken, I said, "Your running times are showing that fact." He took a shot at me later as we were walking into the funeral home, "I think your vegan diet is making you shorter." I replied, "That's because you're wearing motorcycle boots, genius."
oregonmom This way of eating would be SO much simpler if I was single. Although, I'm not entirely sure that my Wife's adversarial position has not helped me to be more compliant in some ways. Sure there have been a couple of cookie incidents, but I do intend to win our contest of wills.
Thought you might be getting quite close to her weight Dis . Good job! Dlee I'm really lucky to have a very supportive DH!

Hope everybody has a good weekend.
It is not confusing at all, really. She is irrationally insecure. People like this are afraid those in their lives are going to leave them. If someone is losing weight and getting healthy an irrationally insecure person can easily feel that it's only inevitable the other person is going to leave them. Once they believe it is inevitable then they will do anything to create their own self illusion that it's the other persons fault and they start sabotaging everything trying to provoke the other parter into blowing up or doing something horrible so others will also see it's their partners fault, hoping to gain some sympathy from someone.Debbie wrote: She would rather you eat her way and die early then just support you, her husband, and be grateful you may live longer and be there for her. I'm confused by that.
