Less than my husband!

Tuesday, May 04, 2010

WOW! Never in my life did I think I would weigh less than my husband. Even at my lowest pre-surgery weight, when I first met my husband he still weighed about 50lbs less than me. Then after surgery when I got to about 20lbs away from him. He starts dieting!!!!!! Don't get me wrong, I am really happy that my husband is being more healthy and taking care of him self. However, when I got to within 10lbs of him, he started to lose a pound for every pound that I lost. At one point I had gotten down to about 2lbs less than him. Then, my monthly friend came and I gained my usual 5lbs of water weight. Again, I am so happy that he was loosing weight and being healthy. But, for goodness sakes I just wanted for once in my life to weigh LESS THAN MY HUSBAND! I have been so frustrated, because I am down to a weight now that my body seems to like. (My body likes, not my mind! LOL) I had been at a stall for practically 2 months now. I was bouncing between 172-179. I was sure that this was it for me! My surgery had done all it was going to do for me. Then this weekend, (again after my monthly friend passed) I stepped on the scale. I was shocked!!!!! I finally had broken into the 160's (169.8) to be exact. I was so happy, but at the same time I just knew that my husband (like he had been for the past few months) had managed to creep below me. I yelled for him to please come jump on the scale. He did, and I was so happy to see that he was still in the 170's (172.6). I was finally LESS THAN MY HUSBAND! This was an awesome weekend! I only have one more real goal that i would like to see (weight wise). That would be to, for the first time in my life to be considered at a "normal" weight. The high end of the normal weight for me is 155.

    I was excited when I weighed less than my hubby too. Sadly, part of the reason is that he seems to be gaining as I lose. He is at an all time high. I want him to lose weight but don't say anything. It wouldn't have helped me if he said something to me. Be glad your hubby is losing with you. Think of all the fun you will have together now!

    Lucky! I will never weigh less than my husband. He weighs 145! I'll be lucky if I can get into the 160's!
