...:::Can we be honest for a moment? ...Have you ever wanted someone to disappear?
It's kind of like when you look into the mirror and you would like to see more mirror and less body image staring back lol......(Not that I'm doing bad, but I think there's always room for improvement !)

After observing my hubbie, (52BINCE) ..gradually disappear before my eyes, losing a grant total of 20 pounds and a pant size, over two years, I decided maybe i could tag along and 'step up my game' ....

I Asked him for a statement ... "In a few words, what would you say changed for your success? .... (He is nearly at goal but has been SO patient the entire time) ... unlike me lol..

Quite simply he said, "My job is a lot more physical than it was a few years ago, and i got used to eating less and not going back for 'seconds.' ( of course I realize men generally lose faster than women)....sigh!

..:::From that moment on, as starchy' as it may sound, i decided i was REALLY going to put my big girl panties on! .....Move more throughout the day and I plan my meals with such care, allowing for a couple of healthy snacks if needed.

And last, if i found myself wandering aimlessly into the kitchen i stopped and asked myself:

Oh ... right! .. emoticon . Just passing through to refill my thermos and add more ice! emoticon

Moral of the story:

I am following my hubbies example with increased activity and before i knew it, 2# disappeared .... vanished ... gone!! I also took my measurements again, since i don't want to rely solely on a scale. ...:::No need to make life more complicated. That's the long and short of it.

Thanks for stopping by and whatever you do, emoticon keep it fun! emoticon
