It's not competition

Saturday, September 29, 2012

First, let me get one thing straight: I am absolutely *thrilled* that my boyfriend is so successful on his diet. He started out weighing about 4-5lbs less than I and he's down over 13lbs now.

The kicker is, I've been eating super healthy, and he drinks beer. Not a lot, but maybe a few (2-3) once or twice a week. He also hasn't worked out in over a week (like myself). I am not jealous. Nope. Not one bit.

Ok, maybe a little.

I just got to tell myself to ignore this little voice and be reasonable. 1. His metabolism is probably faster 2. I haven't been to the gym in a week + because I can't afford it 3. My weight will come off eventually. It is better to do it slow and steady. 4. A lot of Sparkers don't have the blessing of having a live in partner (or husband, sister, roommate, whatever) who has the same health and nutrition aspirations. So I should quit my bitching and be grateful.

    Same thing is happening with me and my husband right now! So glad to know I'm not the only one! He's just as motivated when it comes to exercise and nutrition but he's dropped like 20 lbs in the last 6 weeks and I've lost 9 ...

    I guess the silver lining is that I get a constant stream of motivation (totally agree with you there) but I totally understand being jealous :]
