Husband Deflates


Since so many of you have requested updates on MB's weight loss- not really. [Gosh! I would have thought some of you would be just a teeny bit interested in hearing an update.] I'm going to forgive the oversight and post an update anyway. If you are not interested in hearing it. Stop reading. Now.

35 lbs in 6 weeks?? That's awesome! I can see a real difference in the face. Keep up the good work :) I'm trying to get my husband to "get healthy" too ... Sigh....

Carma,
Is the secret "cumin & chickpeas" or hiding the cheeseballs and the double whisked mayo?

Stacy-
Yes, he is kickin' some diet butt! Men seem to respond well to any type of competition. Maybe that might do the trick with your husband, too?

Mark-
Despite my efforts to get MB eating chickpeas, he despises them. Cheeseballs and mayo have been removed from his diet, although if I was to tempt him with thrice or even quadrupled whisked, he might fall off the wagon. I know I would ;-)

I'm feeling the need to demand full disclosure here.

Last I heard MB does the high school wrestling type diet: starve yourself, dehydrate yourself, lose massive amounts of weight but learn no healthy eating habits.

Now forgive me if I've misjudged and he's become a vegetable-eating, aerobic monkey. But you gotta give hope to the rest of us (mostly female) who eat right, exercise and post 1/2 lb. loss in three months.

Blue State-
Alas, he has not become a vegetable-eating aerobic monkey; more the former, which is why I discouraged him not to do this nonsense in the first place. He also possesses a lot of willpower, a term which I am not familiar with. For example, he likes to point out that he is eating his grilled veggies plain while I douse mine with dressing and eat them over rice. Yeah, he's "fun" like that ;-)
It also helps that he is out and about and not cooped up in an office all day. He burns lots of calories on cold days such as today.
