Beautiful Days Ahead

Last week I lost 3 lbs.  My husband lost 2.5.  I won for this week, but I’m sure it will be short lived.  No matter what happens, more beautiful days are ahead for both of us.  My husband is trying to get his diabetes under control and I’d like to just look better and feel better.  For those of you following my sugarless journey, I’m still sugarless and loving it.  I no longer crave or wish to eat sugar and now I’m saying goodbye to another decade of weight.  I still don’t look thin by any means, but my clothes fit better and I feel better.  With summer coming on, there are more beautiful days ahead, and I’m including my own beautiful self in those days.  Still not quite time for a before and after, but not as far away from it as I once was.  When I lose another 10 lbs, I’ll post a before and after  shot so you can see my progress.  Even so, I’ll still have a long way to go, but it’s good to document the journey.  I can’t believe I’ve come this far!

Getting into the Act

My husband is now getting into the act.  He is swearing off sugar and challenging me to a weight loss competition.  This is scary because he is crazy competitive.  Right now I weigh less than he does and I think it is his plan to change that and soon.

I want to say that men DO lose weight faster than women, but buddy, IT IS ON!!!  It’s kinda fun having someone to work against or for or whatever.  🙂  We are getting on the scale every Monday night and marking our new weight on the calendar.  Right now we are only 4 lbs apart (He’s heavier)  I just had to say that again.  Ha! Ha!  After a month, I’ll post the differences online.  Hey!  I better get busy!

Sugar!

The desire to eat sugar today was almost unbearable! I didn’t eat any, but I have never felt so much pressure within myself to just quit. The only thing that kept me from it was the thought that my daughter would be disappointed in me.

That’s a thought for all of you out there. Get a partner to help you. Choose someone you trust, who will give it to you straight, but with kindness and love. When you are at your worst, they can help dig you out. When you are at your best, they can celebrate with you. Thank you Dolly for being that person for me. I love you!
