You may know from reading this blog, and you definitely know if you know me in real life, that I have been trying to lose 5 pounds forever! At least for a year and a half. At first I had about 8 pounds to lose and then I lost 3, gained 3, lost 3, gained 3....etc.
I just really want to get back to the weight I was before I had our last baby (yes, you heard that right, mom- our last and final :)
I know I am probably being self centered and proud- wanting to look good....but what if I say I just want to be back to how I was for my husband? I know it should be enough to just be healthy- but I think everyone wants to be back to how they used to be...or is it just me?
I have been nagging Dave about a certain soft drink that he has a slight addiction to- (not Diet Coke, that was so 2010. The drink rhymes with salt and is a neon yellow color...). Since I am always trying to make deals and have contests with him about who can lose the most weight, etc., he made a deal....
The deal is that if I lose the 5 pounds (and get to a certain weight) he will quit drinking ____! I think he is hoping I will do it so that I will quit moaning about those pesky 5 pounds and whining about my many diets!!
In the past, I have been on the yogurt diet, the soup diet, Weight Watchers, counting calories, etc, etc......and now I am on the Save My Husband Diet.
And that is why I posted the photo of the cake balls we ate at Starbucks today (see what I am working with here?!? Why would someone go to Starbucks for cake balls when they are supposedly on a diet!?!)
We also went to the library.....
And the park.
Now I am getting on the treadmill and eating cabbage.
How was your day?
