Hubby wants to lose 35 in 12 weeks!

Monday, February 21, 2011

Yep his officially weigh in at work is tomorrow, he wants to lose 35lbs in 12 weeks an average of 3lbs a week, and he is turning 48 on Feb 27, you know what ? He will will do it.
He plays hockey twice a week so now with working out (which we are both heading off to any moment) and our healthy eating he will do it.

I, on the other hand, want to be between 150 and 155 so say 20lbs total, no time limit set, I just want to get there and maintain.
At that weight I am comfortable and a size 8. If the weight is higher but i fit into that size, fine by me I know that muscle is dense so as long as I feel good.
Health wise so far so good.

As many of you know it takes awhile to get into a routine so thankfully I have my #1 supporter Brad on board with our healthy lifestyle. Together we will face the challenges of our mid to late 40's happy and healthy.

Now for the fun stuff - found these photos and had a chuckle hope you enjoy them as well emoticon

    That's great that you will have added support from your husband jumping on the band wagon with losing weight. You are so fortunate to have him be supportive. I only dream of that! Maybe because my guy is 8 years younger! It's showing on him, but he's in denial and/or it doesn't bother him, lol. Yes, being my wonderful age of 46 definitely has many different ways of showing up on my body! So we work harder and we also realize life is short and how much we want to stress on different things. So I'm so glad you are looking forward to vaca and can't wait to see your pictures.

    Good luck! My wife and I are of similar age so we know all too well the trials and tribulations of pursuing fitness as the big "five-o" approaches! You will be successful if you support each other every step of the way.
