I know I probably easter egg :(

I can't help but be royally p*ssed off that DH didn't get me an Easter Egg this year, when he gets me one every year.

I've been on a diet since Jan 1st and have lost nearly 2 stone. I've been saying to all and sunder that I've cut down on chocolate (cut out completely for lent) and that I was going to have a day off on Easter Sunday to celebrate my loss so far with a nice chocolate egg.

I was really really looking forward to one! It was like my incentive to keep exercising and eating healthy - having a day off the diet today.

I've been saying all this to DH for months.

I'll know you'll probably all say I could have bought my own egg, and I know that, but DH gets me one every year so I didn't think I'd need to.

DH heard me saying lots of times that I couldn't wait for my egg and that I wanted him to get me a cadbury's one and he'd say okay I will.

But he didn't and he says there's none left in the shops (he only went to look last night when I asked he'd gotten one yet). He says I'm an adult and I can just do without.

AIBU? I can't help but feel totally gutted. Like all my hard work was for nothing. I'll probably have to sneak some of DD's when she's not looking.

You know you've lost sight of what's important when you start missing a chocolate egg wink

Seriously, don't turn it into a 'you don't appreciate my weight loss' thing - go out and buy yourself something nice, you deserve it.

Well done on your weight loss, it's fantastic

You hard work is most definitely NOT for nothing - you've done amazingly!

Any possibility your DH felt confused about whether buying you chocolate would undermine all your efforts or not? Even though you were directly asking he might have got it in his head that it would be more reinforcing not to get you one, and therefore left it too late?

Like all your hard work was for nothing??


Slightly melodramatic don't you think? hmm

YABU. It's a bleedin meaningless chocolate egg. Buy your own.

there has been a National Shortage of eggs this year unless one wanted a Double Decker egg

have some Easter Broccoli instead, and Think of your Thighs

chin up

FCEK Sun 31-Mar-13 10:54:43

yeah maybe he did think it would be undermining my efforts...

hunts for broccoli

Maybe he couldnt get one?? There were literally NO easter eggs in the country, like, at all, yesterday and through some strange fluke of fate we were saved because DP and myself happened to be in tesco during the week and got them then. We usually leave til last minute - we would have been screwed.

I do understand your disappointment but is it really worth sulking over?

I soooo want an easter egg just now <<hope my mum has got me one blush>>

ShowOfHands Sun 31-Mar-13 11:00:12

It isn't Easter until May anyway. Tell him to get you one then.


huddlelikepenguins Sun 31-Mar-13 11:08:13

OP, did you buy him one?

SkinnybitchWannabe Sun 31-Mar-13 11:16:11

Maybe he wasn't sure if you really wanted one.
Im at Slimming World and have lost 1.5st since jan and Im sitting watching my dc break their eggs up into little bits in a container. I could literally rip it from their hands because it smells and looks so darn tasty but I know if I eat any I will regret it tomorrow.
My OH bought me a handbag instead!
So perhaps your OH didn't want to get you an egg incase tomorrow you regret eating one today...even though you said you wanted one?
I hope that makes sense....I've got serious chocolate cravings so my heads in a tizz!!

I think you may need a bit of perspective. You clearly can't mean that losing weight surely wasn't all about building up to an Easter Egg. I understand about incentives and treat days off, and I know how obsessive it's possible to become when you feel that you've been "depriving" yourself. So I'd suggest it would be healthier for your diet long term if you don't get so caught up in the rules. By all means have a day off and eat chocolate. If it isn't today, because you have no Easter Egg, then tomorrow with a big bar of something lovely. I don't mean to sound unkind, but it does seem like you've got a little too caught up.

BrunellaPommelhorse Sun 31-Mar-13 11:19:19

oh fgs go and buy yourself a bar of something and stop being a twat

Loislane78 Sun 31-Mar-13 11:28:38

The great 'National Easter Egg shortage' has claimed another victim.

Tethering Sun 31-Mar-13 11:32:06

Loislane you made me laugh out loud grin

I can't believe that you felt compelled to start this thread ... or that I'm commenting on it.

purrpurr Sun 31-Mar-13 11:37:47

The mind boggles. Boggle boggle boggle. We need a boggle emoticon...

AnonymousBird Sun 31-Mar-13 11:48:07

OP - I'm not sure what you are fretting about.

My DC's Grandparents came to visit yesterday, stayed for dinner and overnight and they came WITHOUT easter eggs for their grandchildren!!!! Now, my parents are very self-orientated, not that interested in anyone else, but even so, you'd expect them to bring something little for a 7yo and an 8yo, hey, on Easter weekend?! DH and I weren't entirely surprised, but even so, I was a little sad for my children that their GP's couldn't even stretch to being a little thoughtful about that (and money is no issue before anyone says it - they just bought a new £50k car....)

So, keep things in perspective. I didn't feel the need to start a thread about that, so not sure why you do!

AgentZigzag Sun 31-Mar-13 11:58:51

Aww for your DCs Anon, especially when you can get an egg for as little as a quid.

Miserable, tight...people <restrained>

TWinklyLittleStar Sun 31-Mar-13 12:17:27

Aww OP I don't think you're being that unreasonable. You're upset that your DH didn't bother to do something for you that he's always done in the past rather than some thin substandard chocolate (I assume), which I can understand. Get him to do something low cal and nice for you. And well done on the weight loss.

pumpkinsweetie Sun 31-Mar-13 12:19:59

Yanbu, considering you have mentioned it so many times to him!!
Welldone on your weight loss op smile

AnonymousBird Sun 31-Mar-13 12:27:23

zigzig - they ain't tight, Dad turned up with a case of champagne for the event! Just thoughtless, completely and utterly thoughtless. I had even forewarned them that DS's school report was simply OUTSTANDING but they could not have been less interested.

OP - well done, though, on the weight loss, sorry I should have acknowledged that at least!

Nishky Sun 31-Mar-13 12:28:18

I tried and failed to get dh an egg yesterday - typically me and the two dc's received fabulous ones from him

I tried to fob him off with the advent calendar I bought him which he didn't eat- but he was having none of it

Seriously if that is the worst thing that ever happens to him, he'll be doing fine.

N0tinmylife Sun 31-Mar-13 12:29:55

YANBU! I went out a week ago and bought Easter eggs for everyone. I then told DH I had bought him an egg, and if he didn't buy me one I'd just eat his, to avoid exactly the situation you are in now. I haven't even been depriving myself over lent, I just love Easter eggs!
