My husband was watching a football game last night, and they had posted up the weight of a QB, and I weigh less than he did! I realized I no longer weigh more than many football players anymore!

Yea! I always hated that. Especially when they would post the weight and my hubby would say something like, "DAMN, what a huge beast!!" (And in my mind I would think..."oh great, I weigh 50 pounds more than a huge beast!")

Keep up the GREAT work Lizzy!

Oh gosh, I know EXACTLY what you mean. I was a 5 foot nothing female who weighed substantially more then the heavyweight champion of the world, most football players, NBA giants, and so on and so on.
Mind-boggling.

You're doing great. Keep at it.

I'm just happy that I weigh less than my Hubby now! He is a few inches talller than me, but I'm built like a drafthorse {stocky} so we are about the same size more or less! Just knowing that I weighed more than he did wasn't helping.

I know what you mean. I always heard the "yah he was FREAKIN HUGE! Almost 300 pounds I'd guess!" and I was of course closer to 400... sigh.
