Ilikechocolate, I can't imagine what I would do if someone was doing to me what your roommate is doing to you! I don't understand why some people just can't be happy when someone they know is bettering themselves.
patti, some of your substitutions sound really good, that is something I will definitely have try.
desertmountain, luckily for me a don't have much of a sweet tooth but I go CRAZY for carbs! Yeast rolls and mashed potatoes are my biggest weakness, I could definitely see myself raiding a room for one of those two items!
My husband is very supportive but sometimes he just doesn't think things through. He now understands why I got so upset, and has agreed to be a little more supportive through his actions and not just words.
