Day 29....about ready to throw in the towel...
Wednesday, February 29, 2012
Not with my diet mind you, it is going quite well. I have not been on the elliptical lately because I've been sick with a bad cough which makes maintaining my balance on the elliptical a tad tricky but I have been walking. I've stuck to my WW points and have lost 2 weeks in a row. I'm down to 218.2 which is the lowest I have been since I started this journey but I yo-yoed back up to as high as 224 but now I'm back down and my next stop is 213 which is 5% of my total weight lost since I started ww. I need to get back on the elliptical more, but I have been lifting weights. Just hand weights mind you, but it is still some form of strength training. My arms are becoming more defined and goodness are they sore right after I lift those weights. The 4 lb weights were not much of a challenge anymore so i switched it up the 8 lb weights.
As for my towel....my dh (grrrrrrrr) has been eating all my diet foods. I bought myself some quick meals to eat when I am in a hurry and not in the mood to cook anything. I also bought them because lets face it when the kids or dh treats themselves it's nice to be able to have something I consider a treat too. So I bought myself a bunch of those and he has eaten all but like 4. He has been eating 2 meals at a time! He just called here to tell me he's going to stop eating them because they don't leave him full enough so he gets a belly ache! OMGosh I am beyond irritated about this. The whole point of buying these meals is to eat within a specific calorie range or point range and he eats double that and is not dieting at all. It infuriates me that he does this. They're not treats for him, he isn't actively trying to lose weight or exercising so it's not okay to eat all of my diet food. He would just as soon eat a big bowl of ice cream as he would a diet ww bar, but he'll eat the ww bar, still be hungry so then he has ice cream too! It doesn't upset me that he's eating more or that he isn't dieting it upsets me that he's eating the diet food I bought for myself which leaves me with not as many healthy food choices in the house. When that happens I tend to make bad food choices so it would be really nice if he'd help with that not make it worse!
ok, done ranting for now. going to go relax with my poor little boy who is sick home today.
