A Challenge Has Been Accepted!
My husband came home last night sicker then a dog. He was hacking and wheezing. At the dinner table he was able whisper/wheeze/gargle that my sister in law Tasha told her husband that she would be at the weight he met her at in 3 months. HA HA HA... First of all, she wieghs as much as I do, if not more... but her husband seems to think that she only weighs 160 (just because that is what she has on her drivers license.. all together now... HAHAHAHAHAHAH). Second, there is no way she can get down to 130 in 3 months, even if she did weigh 160. Third, there is no way that she is going to look good before I do! Dont ask me why I feel so competitive with her. She and I are nothing alike. We dont really get along, but we dont fight either. We just kinda put up with each other when forced into the same room. We have totally different ways of raising our children... and our husbands are polar opposite brothers. I think that I really just want to look good for my husband. I want his family to see that I am willing to do this to look good for him. I want to be the pretty sister in law.. which will be very hard seeing that I have 3 other sister in laws that are absolutely breath taking.... or maybe I just dont want to be the fat one! Hubby deserves so much more then that. So, without really talking to her, I challenged myself to matching her weight loss. I may not get down to 130 by June, but I AM going to be at least 30 lbs lighter.
So while this is floating in my head all night long, I woke up this morning wandering just how much weight I had lost so far. I broke out the scale and weighed myself. In total horror the scale said 208. I've gained... I dont understand it. I know that I feel better, and I think I look better.. but no weight loss in a WHOLE month.. in fact.. I GAINED! I am devastated. So, maybe its time to rethink my diet. Maybe its time to step up my cardio another notch. I've got to do something, because this just isnt working.
