Craig has been very supportive of my "healthy" food choices this Spring, and has been eating all of the same dinners as I have, with the addition of extra bread. I may have one thin slice, he usually has several. The rest of the day he is on his own and has not really cut back on higher calorie foods.
We each get our own breakfasts, I eat a high fiber cereal, and he usually has ham and rolls, or some frozen packaged dish. He likes Chile Rellenos from Trader Joe's.
He usually snacks at night, but isn't buying things that would tempt me. We used to share ice cream and/or English Toffee on a regular basis, but not any more.
As I look over at him right now, he is eating a bowl of one of his favorite sweets. Eagle Brand sweetened condensed milk. It's almost like liquid white chocolate! I never could just eat it like he does, straight from the can.
On a recent shopping trip he bought chocolates and cookies.
He also continues to drink a couple of glasses of wine almost every evening. That IS a temptation for me, but it is my choice to not indulge. (In the last couple of weeks I have slipped a few times.) And just because I shouldn't have any doesn't mean he can't.
BUT, what urks me is he has lost weight! He is getting skinny!
It seems that if I lose one pound, he loses two.
His doctor did tell him he should lose ten or so pounds, but he has dropped more than that. I think he is close to his weight when he was in his 20's!
Why is it so easy for him and so hard for me?
He doesn't even exercise and I walk on the treadmill every day!
Not fair! His hair isn't turning gray either!
I AM happy with my own progress. I'm down 29 pounds, with a long term goal of losing 15 more to get to where the charts say is best for my height and age. If I don't, I'm OK. I feel very good right now.
