Ok for me to lose a half pound or even a whole pound it seems that it takes forever to show on the scale. Forever meaning at least a week before the scale goes down. It is like a sledge hammer working diligently hammering away and then finally, bingo! It is gone. I am thrilled for the loss. But then my dear husband decides he needs to lose some weight and in 3 days, he loses 11 pounds. I am so happy for him and I tell him that is wonderful. Keep up the good work! But deep inside me, I feel a little frustration and maybe I am envious of his achievement. Then I feel guilty of not being able to do as well as he does.
It is what it is, but still I would like to some day magically look on the scale and say, I lost ten pounds! Yes, I know there is no magic in losing weight and that his loss is probably a lot of water loss and may not stay gone for very long. Still I am a little jealous of not being able to say, I just lost ten pounds this week.
Now that I vented, I feel somewhat better. Off to the toolbox to get the sledge hammer.
