Anyone who reads my blog knows that my weight is a constant struggle. I'm always trying to eat healthy/deny myself/work out/cut calories . . . etc. And to no avail. I have managed to drop a few pounds, but I still have much more weight to lose. A couple of weeks ago, I got discouraged, and decided that maybe it just doesn't matter. I gave into some of my sugar cravings. I indulged in Halloween candy. I ate some pie. It tasted delicious. Then I stepped on the scale and realized that I'd gained 5 pounds in just a few days. Now I have even more weight to lose . . .
Enter my dear husband. Last Thursday he decided that he wanted to lose some weight. He exercised once, ate smaller and healthier portions, and stopped drinking diet Dr Pepper. He's already lost 7 pounds in 5 days. This morning when he got out of bed, he looked as if he had lost even more weight over night. He was noticibly thinner. I'm not trying to say that he hasn't tried - because he has tried hard. But no harder than I've been trying for the past 2 years, and he's lost more in 5 days than I have in 5 months.
Please someone tell me how life is fair!
