Its been a little hectic getting things set up for this diet launch. Its kind of funny because this is my second time on the diet. Really, its a eating style change more than anything. I did follow it for years and it worked great but moving here saw me straying.
Anyhow, I sat here planning over the past few weeks and was overwhelmed with how much more supportive my husband is regarding my proposed changes this time.
He is still a bit iffy regarding the food. Some of it does go into things he doesn’t like. However I told him that any complaints he has are to be held back and not voiced in front of the children.
My children are enthusiastic about the foods. I took a thought written in one of the books regarding this diet and made them each a promise. They had to try each food a minimum of 15 times at different but at successive meal the food item was served. If they did and ate the food as given to them, I would then allow them to not have that food item the next time it was served.
So far Number 1 is at serving 2 of fresh tomatoes and still hating them.
Number 2 is less than enthused about a variety of things but has yet to decide she wants to 15 count something out of her diet.
My husband is very enthusiastic.
I made a Bean and Onion pizza for me for our weekly pizza night. He just raved and raved about it. My kids… well lets just say I pulled it out of the oven and we all ate from that pizza. I really enjoyed it and do look forward to having it again.
But in general, the husband has been great and I just wanted to put out a public thank you!
He hasn’t coughed, sputtered or made gagging sounds at the food; which he did the last time. He hasn’t complained too much about the starting costs. He did encourage and actually proposed that I take a membership to Curves. He promiesed that I can go tri-weekly to Curves. I took out an insurance plan on this by buying a 1 year membership immediately. I figure his loath to ‘waste’ will work best here!
And today when I ran my first incentive plan by him he approved of my idea. So yay! Thank you!
