No gain, no loss this week, it's just even steven. I'm not complaining. Having been down the weight loss path many times before, I know that if I weigh myself again tomorrow, I'll probably see movement. I wasn't perfect on the diet. In fact, on Sunday, I was just jonesing for something sweet - so I went and got it. I also didn't get in as much exercise as I normally would. I hope that isn't the case this week - though I know I likely won't get exercise today as it is pouring. Well, I could do an exercise video after work - so maybe I will. On the other hand, my left achilles has been a little cranky, so maybe I should rest it.
Now, another challenge I'm facing is getting A on the weight loss bandwagon. He will do really well, watching what he eats and working out for a while, then something derails him and he stops and just goes back to bad habits. I have to say that I don't think his eating is that bad right now - at least not what I'm seeing. It may be portion size more than content, but he's not working out at all and he's gained back the weight he lost when he started cross fit last year. I don't get it because when he's working out and getting in shape, he feels so good about himself. I encourage him, things go well - then something gets in the way of his workout schedule and that's it - he's done. It's hard not to nag. It's hard to find a way to encourage him to lose weight without making him feel bad about himself. But I've got to find a way. I see the FDNY Lt who died in a fire recently and the man was overweight. More so than A is, but A's weight scares me with his job. The Lt didn't die from burns or crush injuries or smoke inhalation, they say it was a heart attack. I look at him, then I look at A and I'm scared that it could happen to him. And I don't know how to get him to be more fit. I may have to go on a sex strike again. It's worked before - get right down to what drives a man!
