      Hey Buffy...
      Not sure how to fix the e for you!
      Was your husband trying to sabotage you or does he just not understand the issue?
      It is very hard to say no when it is so inviting. Can you explain this to him and get him on your "team" - we all need the extra support.
      Hope you feel better today ...

      Hi Buffy my BF does similar things. he comes home and asks where the wine is while am serving dinner. it's confusing, I tell him no booze today. then he gets a big magnum bottle out of his backpack with a huge smile.
      He knows very well that I am trying with all my strengh to slow down. he also knows that he needs to slow down himself.

      My DH would never do this w/alcohol because he doesn't drink and has grown to not like my drinking. But, he used to do this w/food a lot (which we both need to lose weight, but I have usually been more overweight than him). I've been doing Weight Watchers for over a year now and lost 35 pounds, though. I have to say that the only thing that stopped his saboteur (is that even a word?) behavior is not caving whenever he would offer the tempting foods. It used to make me feel like I was the total party pooper, raining on his parade, not being appreciative, etc. But, bottom line is I need to lose this weight so I can be healthy and there for my family. So, he may not like it that I don't join in the fun of eating all the bad stuff w/him, but I know (coming from a family w/an obese mom who has serious health issues because of it) that I am doing what is right for them and me (regardless of what they understand or realize).

      ANYWAY, I know it is super hard, but you might just have to be the party pooper to get him to stop. It will feel like you are rejecting him and that is really hard, but it may be the only way that he can finally get it that you are serious.

      Oh, another idea (if you are not completely AF, but mods once in awhile) is to get him involved in planning the nights you will mods and make it a special occasion. I splurge every once in awhile on WW and when I do, I get him involved in what we will fix for those splurge dinners and dessert. Like, for Father's Day tomorrow, I let him pick anything. And, for Christmas, I will always tell him exactly what kind of chocolate I want and how much and make it clear that if I said I want the half pound box of Godiva, do not think that getting me the two pound box is four times as good! LOL

      I'm not sure if my Hubby's really aware that he does it or not... but it seems that whenever I'm trying my hardest to be AF, or drink the least... that's when he decides to bring more home, or wants to go out & play pool @ the bar! I've seen it - time & time again.
      He even came to visit me when I was in re-hab (in-patient treatment, for 21 days), with a 12 pack in his truck!:wow:

      Makes ya wonder..what's going on in there...sometimes

      Maybe he doesn't know just how serious you are about this. Maybe you should show him this thread and posts. It would ruin all my efforts if my spouse did that.

      I don't think you can fix the E. I have done this myself with food and I don't think it is something I did on purpose, but none the less, I did it over and over. Maybe it is some subconscious protection, I don't know.

      I've noticed this also with my hubby.
      He says that HE will not stop drinking beer or wine but if I need to...."then I can just quit"....
      I think they have a fear that somehow if we stop.....then they may feel guilty if they keep drinking......so they sabotage our quiting....
      Not sure if they really understand what they're doing, or just take the easy way for themselves...

      Yucks!
