I hit my ass hard when I fell off that wagon

Well, not too hard, I suppose. I cheated pretty much all week. ::buries face in hands out of sheer embarrassment::

Good news is, I didn't gain any weight, but I didn't lose any either. I attribute that to breastfeeding. What am I going to do when I'm done breastfeeding? I have to change these eating habits NOW! And so does my fiance! He has a good 50 lbs. to lose and he's not even close to getting there.

Which is why Mr. Motivation paid him a visit and gave him a swift kick in the arse. Mr. Motivation=Me. I bet Brian $10 bucks that he couldn't lose 20 lbs. by the time we leave for Hawaii. I honestly don't think he can do it. We leave in 26 days. I think he could least 10-15 lbs, but not 20. I think he'll drop the first 10 pretty quickly because he is considered obese. We shall see. He HATES to lose a bet, so I knew I would get him when I told him I didn't think he could do it.

That may be a mean thing for me to say, but this is my way of being supportive. Brian is the biggest procrastinator of the face of the planet and sometimes he just needs that little push to get him going. That push being my incessant shit talking.

So the goals for this week are to get back on the wagon and to keep Brian motivated by taunting the living daylights out of him. I'm thinking I should take a picture of him shirtless and tape it to the fridge. Then, tape a picture of a sandy Hawaiian beach next to it. I'm the best fiance, no?

Current Stats and Goals:
Weight last week: 158
Weight this week: 158
Goal weight: 145
Other goals: Stay motivated!


  1. I think staying motivated is the hardest thing to do, so I'm right there with you. And I think a little friendly bet with your man is something that can help that. Why not make it a competition even? Hmmm...perhaps I can do that with my DH...hmmmmm.

  2. Haha, do it!

    I told him I think I can lose another 6 lbs. before we leave. That's 2 per week, so I think that's a safe bet.

  3. I think I would win b/c DH isn't into exercising at all, though he as started walking the dog again and those damn men can just go for a walk and lose a pound! We shall see what he thinks of a bet.
