Ricki has a definite problem with food. That is not surprising, as most of us have issues with overeating, and one can hardly expect her to do better than the rest of us. Yet sometimes the utter absurdity of her cravings absolutely floors me.
Her main cravings are for soya patties and bread. Thus, I have demanded that she ask prior permission before cooking soya patties, but she tries to sneak them anyway on the side. The other day I caught her with THREE patties, and needless to say, she got more than a “tsk-tsk”, but an immediate closure of the computer (which she was viewing a disc on).
And the day before that as I sat down to eat my supper at 9 pm, Ricki groanded that she had “not had supper yet”. This despite having eaten a soya patty with THREE slices of bread an hour before……
So, in the meantime, everytime I want to eat more, and don’t, I mention aloud that I want more, but am NOT taking, because I “choose to eat healthy”. Maybe that will help. But maybe not. In the meantime, whatever Ricki wants to eat has “vitamins”, and whatever she doesn’t want is “fattening”.
