I Have Competition

I am feeling so great about seeing that big loss on the scale this morning, and it completely carried me through the day in a wonderful mood! I am really excited about how well this is going so far.

It's funny though... yesterday I was reading a fellow blogger's post about how she has lost enough to weigh the same as their husband and I commented that I am really looking forward to reaching that point myself. Well, my darling hubby weighed himself today and wouldn't you know that he has lost a few pounds too! Now how am I supposed to catch up to him if he keeps losing weight as well?!? I may just start feeding the bugger all the things I normally crave and try to plump him up to make my job easier.

Okay, in all seriousness I am actually proud of him. He doesn't have a weight issue, but he's obviously beginning to shed the few extra pounds that he carries on his midsection. Heck, today he even willingly packed an apple for work!

- 8 glasses of water throughout the day
- 1 1/2 cups of grapes
- 6 large crackers
- 1 1/2 cups of pineapple
- 3 cups of pasta with tomato sauce
- 2 pieces of homemade bread with butter
- 1 banana
- 1 cup of grapes
- 2 cups of celery with 1 1/2 Tb. Tex Mex Cheese Whiz

- 3 sets of 20 stomach crunches
- 1 set of 5 minutes of weight lifting with 2.5 lbs per arm
- 45 minutes of walking completed in 2 outings (30 minutes long and 15 minutes long)


  1. Way to go on the exercise, your rocking it!! And yep that was a great loss this week :)

  2. Way to go on the great loss this week. And a little friendly competition never hurts. My husband and I have a similar thing going. He doesn't have a weight problem , and never has, but he would like to lose those extra few pounds around his middle too. It certainly makes it easier when both of us are trying to watch calories and eat healthy!
