  • Hubby is letting you feed him pizza when he's trying to lose weight? LOL!

    Good for you for taking responsibility for your own life and actions, and discovering how much more FUN it is when you take care of yourself. High fives!

    • Lol Judg,
      I know! It's part of my evil plan to win!! Actually, he told me at the start of this that he wasn't going to change his diet much, just exercise more. I said "That is COMPLETELY fine with me!"

      • That sounds suspiciously like cheating. I guess he hasn't figured out that 80% of the battle lies in food.

        • I don't consider it cheating because I have tried to talk to him about food vs exercise many times over the year. I gave information but he has to use what he wants to use. Therefore, all bets are off. I sooo have this in the bag. As of this morning, after bacon, eggs, and a glass of water, I stepped on the scale (I can't help it! Friday is my normal weigh in day and it feels weird!) and I am 6, yes 6 lbs lighter than I was on Tuesday. I know that this is not fat, but water. But when you are in a numbers contest 6 lbs is HUGE. He laughed last night as I was munching on my pepperoni and said, "I guess you forgot that you are in a contest." I smiled, popped a pepperoni in my mouth, as said,"Nope, just making sure I enjoy every minute of it!"

          • Hey, he got fair warning. And there is nothing like a real-life demonstration to convince people.

              • Feeling very good today. Had a great weekend of playing outside with my big girl. Little one was stuck inside for most of it, feeling miserable. She had shots last week and was suffering from a fever on Saturday and Sunday. She is all better this morning, but I sure felt bad for her! I ate fairly well this weekend. We had a work event to go to for my husbands job that was offering a huge buffet and alcohol. It was a very fun time. I did okay with eating. The meat looked like processed deli meat, so I stayed away. They had a beautiful oyster bar so I stuck to them. Had a few beers, then the crab dip called my name. I ate a TON of it, but instead of going for the crackers or bread, I grabbed a bunch of veggies and sort of had a fondue thing going. I ate a few other things that I'm sure I wasn't supposed to, but all in all I consider it a great success.

                Yesterday I was feeling remorseful about eating so much the night before so I just stuck to my chicken and veggie soup. It is yummy and full of everything I need so I felt as though I recovered well.

                Today I was rummaging through the fridge, trying to figure out what in the world to take to work as I was STARVING, when my amazing mom shows up (she watches my little one during the days) with a thawed out, T-Bone steak. Yahoo!! Score! She said she was thinking of me and thought I might really enjoy it. So I threw it in a pan full of butter and took it to work. It's already gone : ) My mom is awesome. While the steak was cooking, I threw together a big salad to have later, so my day is looking great.

                I feel smaller today, I'm not sure that it is very noticeable yet as I have quite a bit to lose, but I have a feeling that I will be going down a size in my jeans fairly soon. I am cautiously optimistic that I will be able to wear my 12's (they are really really forgiving 12's) this coming weekend for my daughters birthday party. Let's see how it goes!

                Oh yeah! I am also doing (trying to do) the You Are Your Own Gym basic workout. I have yet to do day two because day one literally made my arms stop working for 2 days. I feel better today, meaning I could put my bra on and a shirt over my head without crying this morning, so I guess I can do day two now. I have several short term goals to keep my competitive spirit going. Obviously the first one is to beat my husband : ). One of the longer term goals is to participate in the Tough Mudder in September of 2013. To do this I need to get A LOT stronger besides just losing a ton of weight. I have been too chicken to register but by January 1, 2013 I want to weigh 150 and be able to do at least one pull up. That is the day I will register my name.

                • Whew!

                  Sick kids sick kids sick kids everywhere!! Not sure what happened but it has been a bit of a whirlwind the past couple of days. My poor little one had a fever all weekend due to some shots that she received (so I thought). She wouldn't eat, sleep, and was burning up. It was terrible and I felt so bad for her (an me, as I was up with her during these days)!! Then yesterday I got a phone call from the school nurse that big girl had a fever and a lot of tummy pain. I picked her up and she was just miserable all day and all last night. Her fever hasn't broke yet but it is much lower so I'm hoping that by tonight she will be able to get good rest and return to school tomorrow. Through all of the stress of sicky kids and no sleep, I have stayed totally primal. Wait, I did have a beer, but it was one and it was YUMMY

                  I've totally got the hang of this right now. I have figured out that if I keep eating things that are super delicious and decedent, I won't miss the things that I "can't have." For instance, last night I went out to dinner with friends and couldn't have the steak sub that I was eyeing.. But instead of ordering the dry chicken plate like I probably would have a month or two ago, I ordered the prime rib special with a baked potato on the side with extra butter (got a VERY funny look for that and I suspect it was margarine so I hardly touched the potato at all). It was mouthwatering and I gobbled up that 12 oz steak faster than anyone else finished their bird food plates.

                  Yummm.. And all of this with weight still coming off. I'm still recording in fit day and I think I may be exceeding my calories by just a bit, but not too far off, and I completed day 2 of YAYOG last night and day 3 this morning. I'm really trying to stick to the commitments I make to myself right now. I have not done that enough in a very long time so I'm trying to get back into the habit of not breaking promises to myself. Because of this, I have to say, myself loves me right now!!

                  Hubby emailed me that he has lost two lbs this week. Take that! He says. I emailed him back that was so awesome and that I had lost 7.. He wasn't pleased. I reminded him that any weight lost from either of us is a reallly really good thing and that we are on the right track. He grudgingly agreed. Whatever. I'm feeling pretty darn proud of myself right now!

                  • 7 pounds in one week?

                    You are so right about concentrating on what you can have. Somebody congratulated me on my discipline recently? What discipline? I'm having so much fun eating.

                    • Today is officially week 1 weigh in day. I was exactly 6lbs down. Not a bad week for a girl that couldn't get out of the 180's for 3 years!! My little one is into waking up early right now so I have been up since long before sunrise. My big girl woke up crying and feeling absolutely terrible. Her tonsils are so swollen that they are almost touching and she still has a fever. So off to the dr's office for us later. Meanwhile, I have day 4 of my workout to complete at some point and a TON of work to get done.

                        • Finally, the healthy household has returned!

                          My poor girl was so sick through Friday. Once it was gone though, she bounced right back to normal. This weekend was wonderful, though the food plan sort of went out the window. Lots of snacks, burgers, beer, etc. We had my 2 year olds birthday party on Saturday. The weather was amazing so we had it outside. That afternoon, my little court threw a big block party, our birthday party sort of rolled into that and so it was a great day outdoors from morning until late at night. It was just a really nice time for everyone.

                          Yesterday, the party kept going with family celebration. I ate a very primal dinner of shish kabobs, but then dipped into the Orio's a little later. Oh well, I'm still feeling really great and have no worries about not being able to hop right back on the plan today. I have left over kabab's in the fridge for lunch, black coffee for this morning, and gave away all the left over beer to my neighbor so that it wouldn't even be there for temptation this evening with dinner. Gotta get those calories back on track because I don't even want to imagine what my intake was this weekend! The weight bet is still very much on, and hubby ate just as poorly as I did this weekend. I am hoping a few days of clean eating with offset anything from this weekend and that I will see at least a tiny loss on Thursday. We'll see!

                          • Are you doing it by percentage of weightloss or lbs lost?

                            • Ecks,

                              We are doing it by percentage. So, for example, me losing 10% would mean I need to lose 18 lbs, and he would have to lose 22 for his 10%. I figured that was the only fair way to do it. I was slightly concerned that a big weekend of parties was going to set me back pretty bad, but already this morning I am on track to a possible (small) loss this week.

                              Today I had chicken wings (baked by me) for breakfast and am now enjoying some coffee. I plan on stopping at the store on the way home and getting a yummy steak. I'm really craving fat, like, drink a can of coconut milk kind of craving. So I plan on having steak and veggies tonight with lots of butter and maybe even some bacon. Gotta listen to my body after all

                              I haven't really worked out since Friday. Just totally not feeling it at the moment. We've been playing outside so much that I am just counting that as my workout. I think that is good enough for right now. I am planning a big event for my church on Friday evening and the stress of that is driving me absolutely crazy this week. Trying to remember to take deep breaths and know that there is plenty of time for me to get everything done that I need without worry or fail. Eeks!!!!! Time to meditate..

                              • Ok so it is fair then It helps that you are both close in weight. And really not that heavy. You're only 10lbs heavier than my initial goal weight!
