the deal

Wednesday, April 08, 2009

So last night my boyfriend James and I went out to eat at Texas Roadhouse. I think I did pretty well by just ordering the salmon and veggies. It was really yummy too. Anyways on the way home I was talking about how much his smoking habit stinks. Literally. I have always kind of been on him about quitting, not just because it smells but because it's obviously really bad for him. So i proposed a deal: If I lose 80 pounds he has to quit smoking. Being overweight and being a smoker are both very unhealthy and both are very hard to quit. He tried to argue that smoking is an addiction but of course so is food to me on some level. SOOO....he agreed!! I am so excited. I have been trying to get him to quit for forever and now to think that I can make him healthier by making me healther is just awesome. I am super motivated today and can't wait to reach my goal!

    I made a bet with my husband too over a year ago. So when I began my weight loss progress in January of this year I'm sure he thought he'd keep winning the bet! Our bet involved me losing 40lbs and him quitting smoking. It worked! I have now lost 51lbs, and he quit smoking on March 19th. I'm so proud of him!
