Men Suck

Thursday, June 03, 2010

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.

16 POUNDS!!!???

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!

    Yeah.. I know what you mean...My husband has always weighed within 5 lbs of his very fit high school weight. He has no idea what its like to struggle with weight. But it's ok, He's very supportive and not to mention great eye candy to boot - even after 20 years of marraige.

    Hey- great weight loss! keep up the great workouts!

    First congratulations on the lost weight!!! I am so close to that threshold myself, I am hoping next week or the week after that. The loss of the obese tag seems more important to me than the actual number on the scale.

    I had to read your blog when I saw the title. I had said something to my husband this weekend about weighing himself, he rarely does. He has lost 10 pounds without even trying. I stewed at him most of the day, and certainly expressed my despair at how guys never have to really work at loosing weight, and they get so many more calories a day. It does seem unfair, but in the end I am also thankful that even the small changes he is making compared to what I feel I have done are worthwhile.

    And a big emoticon on the 6 month soda-free mark. That is amazing to me. I have cut way back, but just can't give it up completely...way to go!!!!

    Good luck on the rest of your journey to a healthier lifestyle!
