    Amazing post, thank you! I love how you mentioned we need to be setting good examples. It is hard to expect other people to jump on the healthy train if there are sweets and other temptations around.

    • awaitressnomore says:

      So true. Thank you! Any sweets I really want I’ll go out and buy when I want them so not having them in the house to grab when I’m hangry or craving some junk food or sweets.

  2. Thanks for sharing the marvelous info. It is an excellent article which helps me a lot. I expect we will get this type of informative article more and more.

    my husband LOVES soda. he likes all kinds of it. and can drink 2 L a day. It drives me nuts, especially because now our kids are teasing for soda. i don’t drink soda, and would prefer it to not be in our house at all. i have yet to find an alternative to this. he has switched to coffee while he is at work (for the winter, and he still puts a ton of sugar in it), but when he is at home, it’s all soda.

    • awaitressnomore says:

      Oh gosh, yeah. Soda is such empty calories not to mention the icky stuff they put in it. Has he tried healthier alternatives like Zevia or carbonated flavored water?

    Thanks for sharing these tips! As a newly married I’ve been trying to incorporate healthier choices as well as setting the example. Not always easy but necessary!

    • awaitressnomore says:

      Thank you! I’m so glad my boyfriend and I hit a good agreement on that early on. He was very open to healthy options. Getting him to go to PT for his back though was a whole other story 🙂

    Some great ideas. Totally me with snack stored in the car

  6. I love the idea of setting a reward! And a cheat meal is a great idea so that you don’t feel like you’re missing out all the time.

    • awaitressnomore says:

      Yes! When I feel like giving in I love knowing I have a reward/cheat meal waiting for me. I also keep a list of all the reasons why I try to live healthier and bring it out when I’m feeling bummed out or frustrated.

    This is great not only for my significant other but for myself as well! Getting back on track is definitely going to be easier with this in mind.

    I love this post! I understand that sometimes it can be very difficult to stay on a healthy track when you are with someone who eats unhealthy. I definitely agree that it is important not to be too pushy, but to explain your reasoning. I love all the detail that you included for each step.

      Aw, thanks, Sheree. It can get definitely be hard and having someone with similar goals or at least someone who is trying to be healthy too can be so helpful.

    these are all so great! my husband and i are both very active but really need to focus on eating healthier. the advantage and disadvantage of living in Dallas is the abundance of amazing restaurants and the ease of ordering delivery from them all.

    • awaitressnomore says:

      I bet! Yeah, my boyfriend and I really need to get into prep cooking on Sundays. It can get time consuming cooking every night and easy to make bad choices. The Dallas area sounds amazing!

  10. Candy says:

    These are amazing tips! I need to start using some of these suggestions since there are a few people in my life that I really struggle to help. I really want them to eat healthier for their own well being 🙂

    • awaitressnomore says:

      Yeah, my father’s inability to really take care of himself really made me think about what I wanted in a significant other and for myself. Best of luck to you. Let me know how it goes!

    What an awesome post! I’ll try your tips 🙂

  12. Naomi says:

    This is really interesting for me except in my situation I’m the significant other that needs a bit of a push in the right direction as I have a health condition too. Will share this with my partner.

    • awaitressnomore says:

      Being self-aware is a great first step! I know all about having health conditions. I wish you the best of luck. Hopefully, you and your partner can team up together to help you make some healthier tweaks.

  13. Candace says:

    My fiancé is bigger than me on eating healthy, so he often pushes me way more than he needs to. These are some great tips on getting your significant other to make better choices with food!

    • awaitressnomore says:

      It’s great to get a point of view from the flip side. Hopefully these suggestions may help him be supportive as opposed to pushy. Let me know how it goes!

  14. Chrissy says:

    These are all such great tips! I love the idea of a reward. I’m a foodie, so I have a bad habit of eating all the things, but a reward might just do the trick. 😉

    • awaitressnomore says:

      Thanks, Chrissy! I love food too. So much, haha! I’ve just learned to save up my splurges for food that is worth it 🙂

  15. Nina says:

    I love the idea of having healthy snacks ready. If not, I’d likely just snack on whatever I could find. Also people can encourage each other so much.

    • awaitressnomore says:

      Yeah, I always run into trouble when I’m hungry and driving. Knowing when you’re more likely to make unhealthy choices can help stop you from doing them. So tough though!

  16. I’m saving this for later! Loved the snacks and rewards lol.

  17. Marissa says:

    Wow! Great points. I’ll definitely put some of these into place
