You are very strong for sticking to your plan......its easy to eat thru your emotions!! \
I was wondering if the next time you could ask your dh to make you a similar meal...then you can eat together and not feel deprived or angry. But, your meal could consist of chicken breast, plain baked potato with yogurt topping,,and maybe even some mushrooms and peppers and onions cooked in some chicken broth to soften. If pizza is planned then take a whole wheat tortilla , spread some pizza sauce, little low fat cheese,,some veggies etc..and there is your pizza. I find its all about choices..and challenges, when i see something I want to eat I try to figure out how to make it low calorie.
My dh would like to have an occasional bag of chips..my major weakness..so I would make some popcorn. If I could not help the craving I would take about 5 chips..and slowly savour them and tell him not give me anymore. ! He eventually stopped bringing them home..he felt too guilty.
