    How do you do this, with a family still to feed day-in, day-out?

    I think it will be weird to have them see me now using gloves to prepare their food.

    I would prefer to just do this quietly, on my own, but we eat dinner together and they will look at my dinner amount and monotony and have lots of questions.

    Also, ds's birthday is next week - he will feel bad that I don't share in his special meal and birthday cake.

    What kinds of things did you tell your kids? Are there many moms and dads on here?

    well I don't wear gloves to prepare food but basically I told my kids that I'm on a special diet where I can only eat certain foods and other than that they really don't care...they've seen me do the injections too and really just want to know if they hurt

    I have 2 small children and DH thru this diet to feed. No one really cared, kids ask questions and are curious but it is just food and they really have other things on their mind. I would serve a modified version of what I was eating for them. If I had a grilled chicken breast, then they would have sauteed chicken. If I made spaghetti, I would make myself meat with canned tomatoes. We ate a lot of grilled chicken or steak and my portions were just much smaller and didn't contain oil. You can do this!!!

    I wear gloves when I'm cooking for my husband, no biggie.....Don't want to get the butter and steak fat through my pores and have that affect my weight loss!!! Cook at the same time, use diferent cooking utensils, etc.




    I HAVE DONE THIS BEFORE, THERE IS NO ROOM FOR MISTAKES!!

    I have six children and they know I am on a diet (the ones old enough to understand, that is!). They know that I am doing it to be healthier and to feel better about myself. Also, I am usually so busy cooking/feeding/cleaning up normally that I hardly have the time to sit down and eat when they do. Don't worry, it is only for a short period of time and then you will enter the wonderful food heaven that is phase 3!!!

    I wear gloves when I prepare anything with fat or oil for my family. Use this as a great teaching opportunity for your kids. Believe me, when the pounds start to melt away and Mom starts feeling better and looking better, they'll all be on board. My son is so excited to trade in his always overweight Mom who sat on the sidelines of life for so long for this newer, happier, thinner version. He's a teenager, so we can talk about it more than if he were younger. But, still, use this as a great example of what it looks like for Mom to take care of herself (something that we Moms often don't do enough of).

    Well I've had a serious aversion to raw meat since about the age of 15. I can NOT stand the feel of raw meat. Even just the thought of this is making me shudder ugh. So I have always worn gloves to handle meat (even canned tuna, ya I'm a freak) so this is nothing new to anyone in my family. My 8yo knows I'm dieting. I've been through so many all he asks now is when is this one done lol. My 2yo could care less what I eat as long as he has strawberries, clementines, grapes, mac n cheese, and chix nuggets. My husband also doesn't care what I eat as long as it doesn't affect his food which it doesn't. The only one that "suffers" in my family is me ::shrug:: i did it to myself lol

    Luckily my family is all older. My youngest son currently lives at home.. he's 23. My oldest, DIL and gbaby are about 10 mins from me.

    At first I was cooking 'non-P2' versions of food for my son and then he kinda started doing his own thing. He much prefers when I'm in P3..cheered this last time after I did 53 days of P2. I've never bothered with gloves, etc when preparing their food if I'm on P2.

    I cook a family dinner every Sunday that is rarely P2 or P3 compliant so I end up making two meals.

    My DIL and now my at home son both want in on my next round in February. My son said "hey.. I need to lose weight.. it obviously works and maybe I won't have to cook."

    I have a 6 yr old and a b/f. I make my meal. I ask if anyone is interested in what I am having. If anyone is, I'll gladly prepare extra. If they are not then Daddy cooks for them or they have "sandwich night". Both are very supportive of my efforts. I still bake cookies for them on the weekends because they like them so much . I don't even want the cookies myself but I've never been huge on the sweets so it's not a problem. We do have one rule. NO ONE but mommy is allowed to eat the last apple, orange, or grapefruit. lol.

    I don't wear gloves when preparing meals, but I don't use special makeup or shampoo and conditioner either. My family does not care what mom is eating, my husband feels a little guilty sometimes but I think that's good for him lol.
