Time for a new you my partner encourages me to eat rubbish by kindly buying choc for me and multi bags of crisps when I haven't bought them with my big shop .Think he sorta feels threatened in a funny way by the new 20kg lighter and more comfortable confident me .....please use this as a trigger .It will distract you too as you plan, shop and eat differently.
