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.
