I hate wasting food, which typically results in me eating what my kids don't. It's hard to lose weight like this! Ugggh

My boyfriend tends to buy excess food all the time- and then in my mind, I'm like... well, I can't let this food go to waste... food is money, I better eat it so I don't feel guilty...
Then afterwards it's a mixed feeling-  happy that I ate the food and that I wasn't wasteful, but also sad as fuck because I wasn't hungry to begin with but ate it anyways and feel like lard.

I hate wasting food.  It's such a... waste.  Why did my mom ever tell me about starving kids in Africa?  The guilt!

Same.. If I am not hungry enough to finish my plate I will still do it because it's too little to actually put away into the fridge and eat later

Ugh I hate this. I grew up poor so I was always taught to eat everything on my plate and eat quickly. So now I eat even when I’m over full, I eat what my kid doesn’t eat, and I fight with my hubby for not eating his food and be wasteful. It’s so frustrating.

I hate wasting food. Especially if someone made it for me. I also hate wasting money which is hard when I make something to take to work so hubby thinks I'm eating and then I don't want it, I want to ditch it but then feel guilty.

I used to. I sometimes have this with my kids because if they do not finish it, I have the urge to eat it. But then I also ponder whether it is worth gaining weight over. So, depending on what it is, I either throw it away or save it for them to eat later.

Ugh. Yes. My oldest son is the worst. He's 20 and he'll bring home a foot long sub or something and then say, "hey Mom, I can't eat all of this. You want the rest." I can't seem to say no and watch it get thrown out.

Lol, me too try logging every calorie if you can. I just roll with it. Left overs if big enough go in a small container in the fridge, small bites I eat and call it lunch. xD
That's it no more hummus. (The next day has more, lolz.)

I talked to my bf about this yesterday. And the amount of pain it caused me as a kid. I grew up really poor... so wasting food is kind of a trigger. And I don’t need that pressure when I eat. He understands... he said if I’m full then I’m full and he doesn’t mind wasting a few dollars... plus he said he’ll eat what I don’t lol!

Yes i always end up going shopping and i feel like im the only one who eats it. I dont like to cook cuz nobody eats the left overs. When we have left overs we eat out and thats fucking frustrating. Money is constantly wasted on food. Fucked up part is i get food stamps so we shouldnt be spending any money on food. Either way yes its hard to lose weight with this mentality.

My SO is very wasteful which pisses me off  A)  because I pay for everything    B)  leftover food can be a big temptation for me

 

My solution - try to salvage anything I can, put it in the freezer and re-present it as a different meal later on!    


Just another functioning anorexic, anorexically dysfunctioning.....

Ugh leftovers are the bane of my existence. I’m usually the only one who will eat/serve leftovers because of this. Usually I freeze a lot. I cut bell peppers up and stick them in the freezer then pull from the bag when I need them. Our dog is spoiled rotten with questionable items, but I’ve had a saving grace lately in that regard simply because my mother in law has access to a couple of pigs and they eat everything
