My official weekly weigh-in was yesterday morning. I have lost 13 pounds in 4 weeks. It always is easiest at first. The holidays make it a bit more complicated. Last night I took my staff and their spouses to a wonderful steak and seafood restaurant. I stood firm. Ordered the lo-cal options and skipped dessert while everyone else had the creme brulee. It would not have been as easy except my wife and co-workers are being super supportive, both at work and at our gathering last night.
I can't tell you what a blessing it is to have a wonderful wife supporting me through this. She doesn't nag, she just helps. She often eats what I can eat. She tells me she can already see a difference (don't know if that is really true but it is a great motivator) and she listens to me sharing the details of my eating and exercise plan when I am not sure she really wants to hear. It is important that she be proud of me. After all, I am doing this as much or more for her than I am myself. I love her and intend to be her husband for a very long time. Next Tuesday will be our 13th anniversary. What a wonderful 13 years!
