I joined The Biggest Loser Club at work and even though I am the oldest I actually won for the most weight loss last week out of 42 people. I was really proud of myself! I called my hubby to tell him of my achievement and he really complimented and encouraged me.
My hubby wasn't going to be home for dinner so I decided I would give myself a treat for dinner. Then I really started rationalizing so I thought okay I can afford a DQ oreo cookie Blizzard. Yup, thought it did it. Of course I felt so guilty that I didn't eat anything else for dinner. How do we spell s-t-u-p-i-d. So instead of enjoying a victory I was racked with guilt.
My dear sweet hubby who has never criticized my weight gain but has constantly encouraged me came home from his meeting with a treat of congratulations for me thinking I had a salad for dinner. The treat? A Wendy's oreo frosty.
I didn't dare turn it down because it would hurt his feelings plus I didn't want to share my stupidity. So, lessons learned here....the treats aren't worth the guilt and my hubby is still wonderful.
