How Relationships Cause Weight Gain

It's official. I can no longer eat with the mister. He eats anything he wants, whenever he wants, and doesn't seem to know that portion control is even a concept! And the kicker is, he looks great.

And since he's sort of a takeout food junkie, we've decided that even though we might be eating our meals together, it's likely we won't be having the same food.
