So I weighed myself today, 213.5 but hey that’s all good, I know I didn’t eat an extra 1750 calories yesterday! TMI but again my poop is GREEN, I eat so many veggies that I’m not surprised lol. I also worked out half an hour- so I’m wondering if it’s a little water retention from that? Either way I’m still happy.
So last night my husband’s friend comes over- the one who is trying to lose weight but still eats out daily… He was like let’s go out and get some dinner and I was like no, I’m cooking, and proceeded to make Au Jus pork chops (185 calories a serving), cheesy rice (280 calories a serving), and sauteed zuccini (80 calories a serving- this includes the olive oil).
To my surprise my husband took some of the zucchini! Then he ate it. THEN- okay sit down if you aren’t- HE TOOK SOME MORE! *dies* Then he said “this is really good” OMG WHO IS THIS GUY?! lol.
My husband has been changing a lot of his habits lately. I mean the other day he ATE FISH AND LIKED IT! And then ladies, last weekend he bought yogurt with granola and ATE IT! That with last night I’m thinking “okay aliens must have taken my husband and replaced him with a clone, but I like this new guy!”
His friend was like omg man since when do you like that stuff?! lol. And Chad was like I don’t know, but babe you are starting to convert me cuz I’m craving light foods I never craved before.
I’m so proud of him! I think with time he’ll start eating a lot more healthier and wonder why he let himself miss out so much. I’m just glad that he is deciding to try the things I cook. Like I’ve told him before, I don’t expect him to like everything, but to at least TRY it. And now he’s seeing that he actually likes the stuff!
Changes like these make me really happy, for one, I’ve been able to resist a lot of temptation, SURE it would have been easier to just go out and eat but I decided hey I’ll cook and save my family a few hundred calories and save my wallet too! And yesterday at work someone brought in food and I didn’t eat it- NOT ONE BITE WOO! *does the happy dance* these little victories definitely count in my book
I spoke with my friend and said “you still working on the weight loss” and he said “no I haven’t had time to go to the gym” and I told him if you’d just start cooking more at home and making yourself meals from home you’d most likely CONTINUE to lose the weight. He was like yeah probably I just don’t have time to cook either but I’m sitting here thinking dude- you come over to our house at least once a week to just chill, you watch every movie known to man, I KNOW you have time! But I didn’t say a word, just wanted to hopefully plant a seed in his head.
Have a great day everyone!
