Her Binge-Eating Meant Sweets Had to Be Hidden, but When Her Husband Left Some Lying Around, He Got Mad That She Ate One and Junked the Rest

A woman recently asked for some advice about whether or not throwing away food to help with her weight loss was right or wasteful. Here’s what happened.

She’d Baked Cookies for Them

In honor of their visit, the husband’s mother had baked a ton of delicious cookies.

There were too many cookies to eat in one sitting, so to save them from going to waste, the family took some home.

The woman had recently given birth and was battling to shed the baby weight.

She Made a Rule

Because she knew she liked to binge eat, the woman made a rule: no sweets in the house.

Although the rule started out strict, things soon relaxed. The woman said, “If we do have sweets, we store them in designated areas in the house.”

The woman’s husband was told to store any sweet treats he wanted away from her; she didn’t want to see them. ‘Out of sight, out of mind.’

She Went Shopping

The woman said, “I went out for groceries, and my husband left the dishes for me to do when I got back.” The shopping took longer than planned, and then there were the dishes. She felt wiped out.

The woman got started on the washing up and opened up a cabinet to put some cups away, only to come face to face with the two last cookies.

The woman felt mad that the cookies were right there in front of her, but before she knew it, she’d gobbled one up.

The woman was about to eat the last cookie as well when she realized what she was doing.  She said, “I decided to just throw it away because it was the only place of finality that meant I could not get it later and devour it.”

She Told Her Husband Off

When her husband came into the room, the woman told him that she was mad because of where he had put the cookies, and she explained that she’d eaten one right away.

Rather than taking the criticism and being understanding about her binge-eating habit, her husband said he was glad she hadn’t eaten them both; he wanted to eat the last cookie.

The woman told her husband she’d thrown the cookie out for her own good, and he told her she was wasteful. She said, “He literally just had to walk less than five steps over to the snack shelf and put it there.”

Was She Wrong?

Should the woman have thrown the cookie in the trash to stop herself from eating it, or should she have given it to her husband?

The Internet Responded

One person said, “This is not worse by any stretch of the imagination than her husband leaving her to do all the dishes after she did all the grocery shopping.”

Another said, “It really was a win. I struggle with bingeing, and I would class that as a massive win if I threw something I really wanted to eat away.”
