Lost 4.2 pounds! And gained a discouraged husband.. HELP!
Friday, May 31, 2013
Well I got my act together and lost 4.2 pounds this week. My husband didn't lose any weight (seriously lost 0.0) but I think he's still down 10 pounds, and it is better than gaining. We've made a lot of changes this past week including him exercising more so we were both expecting some weight loss. I just don't know how to keep him from being discouraged. He started using our recumbent bike a few days ago and he was doing 6 miles at the highest resistance at around 12mph. He's been watching what he's been eating. Last night he didn't eat anything past 8, and he felt confident about losing weight. Now that the scale showed 0 he's a little depressed, discouraged, and I'm scared he's going to go back to eating unhealthy. If anyone has ANY advice on what to do to let him know that it is natural would be awesome!
Now to me.. It feels AMAZING to know that my work has paid off. Especially because last week I weighed in at my heaviest weight ever 229.5. I was terrified to cross into the 230's. Although last friday I weighed in at 7:30 am at 229.5, when I weighed in to my Weight Watchers meeting at 12 I was 228. So I'm interested to see what it shows today. But I've always weighed in on my WiiFit Board so that's my definite weight in my mind.
Gotta get ready for work. Good luck every body.
