Planning the Diet
Diet planning, for us includes the following things. Most of the reasons are purely selfish, I admit it.
Prepare the household. All three of us. I continue to tell babyboy on a daily basis that once school is out, we will begin dieting. I’m doing it this way because I will have more control (evil maniacal laugh) over his eating. It will also give me a chance to teach him to eat properly without any outside influences. Get him trained and used to it.
Other half doesn’t have a weight problem. He could stand to lose a couple of pounds, but he can actually do this without much effort: all he does is cut out fried food and he drops 20 pounds. It’s sickening. I should give him a kick in the butt for it.
We have a *ton* of beef in the freezer that I just can’t bear to throw out, so we gotta eat it. Once dieting commences, there will be no beef. Other half can eat however he wishes outside the home, but inside, *i* have control (evil maniacal laugh), at least until I have my own self under control, then slowly, danger food can be re-introduced.
Kitchen cabinets, fridge, all get cleaned of danger food, including butter (which I won’t miss – I use it when it’s here but can do without when it’s gone). Crackers, cookies, chips, ice cream, beef – all this stuff goes. Most of it is sent with the other half to work, some is trashed.
