Poll: Does your spouse/ significant other help or hinder you weight loss efforts?

mine is very supportive, but I was thinking how impossible it would be if someone was sabotaging me daily. My mom came for a quick visit and totally derailed me.

Nobody can hinder my weight loss efforts because it is 100% up to me to make the decisions. If I choose to skip exercise or eat what I know I shouldn't that is MY decision.

I agree with the previous poster. But, I also think that if someone is sitting next to you, eating soemthing you know you should not have, it doesn't make it easy.
I'm lucky b/c my boyfriend and I got for walks together, and exercise together when we can. He is being very supportive and is a good infulence on me b/c he has such good habits of his own. :)

I read this Harvard study that concluded that people snack primarily because it is available. They took people who worked in an office and put candy and snack food very close so they could see it and reach for it. As they moved the snacks incrementally inches away they statistically ate less and less. If it was no longer in arms reach it made a big difference, and not being able to see it made the biggest difference. So it might be choice, but it is tougher the more accessible it is.

Supprot says help... the Strawberry Milkshake Oreos, White Cheddar Cheetos, Classic Coke, and ice cream bars in the freezer say hinder.... I think hinder wins over.

My boyfriend totally hinders my weight loss...he has the fastest metabolism on the planet, eats 24/7, and eats the most gnarly fatty foods EVER...of course, since it's there and my will power totally abandons me in my time of need, I totally chow down...

oops! :/
