So this morning I was celebrating my minor victory: I have once again crossed the threshold between obesity and just being overweight! That nagging two pounds almost drove me nuts, I seemed to be moving in the right direction, just in .2 lb increments. Finally, this morning I was at 168.9, which made my little bloated wii character just a little less round. So I was excited about number, and I decided that it was time that my husband step onto the fit. I was hoping to shock him into exercising, but that jerk has lost over 16 pounds since he last stepped on it at the end of March.
How can he lose 16 pounds just by tweaking his diet... he hasn't cut out soda... he doesn't wake up every morning at 6 to do cardio and strength training... he never gets 8 hours of sleep unless I let him sleep until 11 on weekends... WHY IS LIFE SO UNFAIR!!!
Ok, so I'm being a little melodramatic, but still grrrrr.... that's just frustrating.
While I can fume over his undisciplined 16 pounds, I am pretty excited that he crossed the same threshold that I did this morning. That 16 pounds basically blew obesity out of the water and he's got a running start towards normalcy.
I guess I'll have to celebrate my victories away from the scale... like the fact that hubby and I were able to meet up with friends at Wild Wing Cafe (Like Buffalo Wild Wings, but SOOOOO much better) without giving in to those little delicious breaded wings. We ate boneless, skinless chicken breast marinated in one of their sauces with steamed broccoli on the side, and we LOVED it. Drew did have a soda, and I had a large beer, but I think we earned it with our disciplined main course picks.
Plus, today marks half a year that I have been soda-free. I can't let Drew steal ALL of my glory!
