There has been an odd side effect to dieting with your spouse I didn't realize was happening.  We talk more!

It seems that when you have common goals you communicate more.  Duh, that is management rule number something or other.  Amanda and I have been supporting each other on this diet and it is so much easier.  It gives us a natural conversation starter.  For the first time since we lived here, this week, we ate one meal at our pub table in the kitchen in lieu of in front of our monster television.  

Furthermore, our conversations about our day, our cravings, what we miss and the like have lead into more fruitful and thoughtful conversations.  Sometimes couples can really loose track of how much they like each other when the rigors of day-to-day life set in.  During the course of this week, we had a two hour long conversation about serious and not so much type things with the television off.  We should diet more often, just to really remember how to appreciate the love and support that we have in this house.
