So I was talking to my ex tonight cause he comes over two nights a week to spend the evening with number 2 son. He looked at me and here's how the conversation went...
He said "your doing really well, how much have you lost?"
I said, "40 lbs" with a big grin
He said "wow that's great, how long has it been?"
I said "since Sept 20, about 12 weeks"
He said, "that's fast maybe too fast"
Then he said " well the hard part will be keeping it off"
Now is that a backhanded compliment? Not sure but I sure felt like backhanding him! I know that will be the tough part, I know because of how many roller coasters I've been on before. I know it is the biggest risk but I don't think it will be the toughest part. The tough part will be staying commited to a proper nutritious eating plan, controlling my alcohol intake and staying active. That is the only way I will, or any of us, will maintain our weight in a healthy range.
I kept my cool, I packed up my stuff for kick boxing and left saying a fond farewell to both! In the car I had to chuckle, here he is struggling to lose some extra weight but he is eating Lean Cuisine's (which I hate and don't believe they are a good nutritious choice) and snacking on crackers and some candies.
So what is the hard part? The way I see it:
The first hard part is making the commitment to change your life, the second is to still with a plan while you change and the third is to live with the plan forever. I'm in the second phase waiting with great excitement for the third!!!
Keep moving and be happy!
