You tell me you are hungry? Well, have this Big Glass of Water dear!

Friday, May 16, 2008

I replied: "You misunderstood, I did not say "I am thirsty", I said I was hungry"!
Then my boyfriend repeated: "We just had a great meal. Take that glass of water, drink it all, let's take a nice walk outside, and if you are still hungry, we'll have carrots and celery!"
At first, I felt a little frustrated by his answer... My taste buds wanted something crispy, and sweet or salty, and I don't know really, but I wasn't "in the mood" for another glass of water (I do take my 8 glasses every day)!

Okay: I did tell him I needed support for loosing weight, but I did not expect HIM, to tell Me What to do!?! emoticon

It took me a minute, after drinking that glass of water, to finally realize how helpful his advice was! And of course, I knew this was the good thing to do, but sometimes, we do not want to listen to that nice little voice inside our head, right? emoticon

So thank you my dear Friend! You just saved me from doing something I would have regretted, and in the end, I was really thirsty! Wish you could always be there, and wish I would listen more, even when it does not really sound like what I wanted to hear!

    lol well water isnt the best tasting, I know what your saying, but I do find myself drinking 9 to 11 cups a day now lol and it was so hard to just get 8 when I started spark! my fiancee is so funny, he will drink 40 ounces of water in 30 minutes and STILL say hes hungry, im proud of him tho, he has lost soooo much weight, I think his problem is hes eating way to little! hes losing too fast but he wont listen to me, and now his weight loss has stopped (im assuming because hes NOT eating enough and doing way too much exercise, but he wont listen to me, but hey he lost 50 lbs since the second week of february, as long as he dont give up he will be ok.
any way this isnt about him LOL congrats on having a great boyfriend :) hugs and good luck with your goals :)

    Bless your boyfriend for LISTENING to you when you told him you needed support! And, bless you for not resisting what you didn't want to hear! Keep up the good work! Your page looks nice. Your little boy is a doll! :)

    Keep listening to your dear friend, and I applaud him for saying something sensible. Do you know how many women would kill for your partner ?
Guard him like a pitbull terrier..
