I am in the same situation - both the husband and I have a pug. I know - not the point. Anyway - it is very difficult to make the healthier choices when all the triggers are still there. I attempted to get my husband to understand. For the most part, he keeps his junk food in one cupboard and I keep out. But there are still things - even being in maintenance for over two years now - that he will bring into the house and think I should just ignore.
While I would love to say that his choices to be unhealthy don't get to affect my choices to eat a healthy diet - and that I should be able to tell him that his crap isn't allowed in the house. I never thought that was fair to him. I am the one who changed. And I don't feel like I can push my changes onto him. While it would be nice if he would join the healthy party - I can't make him.
