We've all seen the ads, fat cartoon woman comparing her weight loss to a husband, friend, even a dog. I am that cartoon woman! I just had a baby a little over two months ago and during that pregnancy I put on 60 pounds. Yes, you read that correctly, 60 POUNDS!!!! Now I am feverishly trying to shed those pounds because I have a walk-in closet full of clothes that don't fit.
My husband, the gentleman that he is offered to lose weight with me. He even set up a contest where the winner gets $250 to spend on whatever they want. Well, just like the commercials; I cut my calorie intake and start workout out like it's my job and hardly lose anything. My husband on the other hand starts losing weight like it's what he's paid to do. Did I mention he eats anything he wants (usually anything that's not nailed to the floor). He's started working out too, but not like me.
It's so frustrating. He has about 15 pounds to lose to my 35 and they're just melting right off of him. I'm just waiting for my dog to start shedding the extra pounds too. Here's to all the cartoon ladies out there!
