All The Things He's Said

Today I would like to share some of the comments that "Temptation" has made over the course of this week in regards to my weight:

  • Spooning in bed: "I can wrap my arm all the way around you now."
  • Watching me walk on the treadmill: "You've definitely lost a lot of weight."
  • Walking to the car: "You need new pants, those are too baggy now."
  • Sitting in the car with his hand on my leg: "Your leg feels smaller."
  • On the couch watching football: "Flex your arm."  then "It's a lot smaller, and firmer."
  • Getting dressed after a bath: "Wow." and "You're going to need new bra's ... or a boob job." (I tried to warn him at the beginning of this journey that I would lose the weight from my bra first; it's obvious in the pictures from November and December that "the girls" are shrinking.)
  • Staring at me while we were both watching TV: "The first place I noticed it (weight loss) was under your chin." 
  • After pinching my bum: "Soon there won't be anything left to pinch."

  • After stepping on the scale Monday morning and telling him what I weigh: "You look like you've lost a lot more than that, you must be building a lot of muscle."

My financial crisis of the past few days has ended ... or perhaps been delayed for another 6 months to a year, so we decided to grab supper from a window instead of trying to cook in our disaster of a kitchen.  We still wanted to keep it cheap, and of course I am always thinking about places that have healthy options.  I named off a dozen places with chicken/salad alternatives and he finally said "You need to just pick somewhere because I want you to eat something that you're going to enjoy and be happy about."

I'm thinking if he keeps this up I may need to rename him; "Temptation" doesn't really seem to fit lately.

  1. Those are some great NSV's you got going on there! I'm glad you are back among the living and hopefully the wallow-fest is over. I get like that sometimes myself so I know how debilitating it can be. Non Scale Victories are where it's at. You go girl!

    I have no idea what any of those songs are. I am officially old. At least I recognize some of the artits so I must not be too far gone.

  2. Wow - you are about the same size and shape as I am. I am working to get down to 135 also, but I was hoping to get there by the end of this year. I wish my girls would shrink... :)

  3. I would like to shrink my butt and thighs more than my girls but alas, nature is a cruel mistress

  4. Lovin' the playlist! And getting those compliments from your man is AWESOME..keep up the good work. Glad to hear about the crisis being gone, or delayed. I got laid off from my almost 10 year gig with IBM summer of '09, so if you're going through scares about that stuff I can relate!
