Noticing a Pattern

Monday, May 27, 2013

So I've noticed lately that on my days off, I tend to ignore spark and also most of my diet. I go over my calories, but I don't go over by much. I think a lot of it is because my husband was on board with losing weight and then suddenly has decided its too much work. We have been going out to eat a lot and when he has the attitude of "I don't care," it makes me have the attitude as well.

However, I know I'm seeing results and seeing stuff change. I mean, the biggest thing now is that my wedding ring is on a necklace instead of on my hand because it just doesn't fit anymore. I have sizers ordered but they may take up to 2 weeks to get here.

My pants, unfortunately, are in the in-between stage. i can put on the size smaller but they are still pretty tight.

I've also noticed when I'm at work, I'm extremely focused and I watch my calories and eat a lot better. I think I just need to realize that Mike can eat at McDonalds as much as he wants, but I don't have to eat there as well. I can always make a sandwich at home or find something else to cook. I can just go with him and sit while he eats.

Anyone else know what I'm going through? Weekends are rough for me and ti's worse because I work a 12 hour job, my weekends last 3 and a half days!!!

    My husband can tend to be that way too, in the beginning it was all good. But the last several months he's been slipping up. Wanting to go out to eat more again, wanting more sweets and junk in the house. And it is tough. We just have to be tougher.

    so I've turned weekends into 'weight losing concentration days'. that's when I can decide best what to cook and eat (and how much);
    and most importantly, that's when I really have time to exercise... walk in the woods, swim, dance or clean house.
    and I've set my weigh-in day for Monday morning.

    watch out for that "I don't care" attitude! you will care... when it's too late!
    been there, done that.
