Kody's birthday was Wednesday, Jan. 17 -- and Janelle's former sister wife Meri, who is divorced from him, celebrated her birthday the day before, on Jan. 16, turning 47.

What Janelle, one of three wives of Kody, 49, didn't mention, however, was the temptation she likely faced with the birthday cakes and other tempting food to mark the milestones!

As has reported, Janelle has been has been trying to lose weight for a long time.

For a blog post on Jan. 9, Janelle told fans she suffers from "the F*#k its," which is "when all your food addictions and bad habits speak to you the loudest."

"While I think that is a very harsh and vulgar word, there is no better way to describe this place I can get into some days with my fight to eat clean and keep pursuing my wellness goals," Janelle confided after New Year's Day.

She added, "While I have not learned of any secret weapon to fight against these feelings, maybe awareness is the first step."

Previously, Janelle said in a TLC video, "I've been making some big changes in my life — trying to get myself healthier and my kids healthier — and part of that is what I've been fixing for dinner and that I've been fixing dinner."

Janelle revealed she was avoiding processed foods, pastries, and pasta.

The reality TV wife has been "married" to Kody for 24 years — although only his first marriage, to Meri, was legal, and also his fourth marriage, to Robyn. Kody divorced Meri in 2014 to wed Robyn legally. The family also includes a third "wife," Christine.

As reported, wife #2 Janelle was once married to Kody's first wife Meri's brother!

Janelle has continued with the Kody clan's bizarre living arrangements for years and has always been the largest- looking sister wife.

She's trying to avoid high-calorie food, but as any dieter knows, special occasions can be the hardest test!
