small vent, great day

So the last two weeks I've been maintaining. I mean I'm trying to lose but I can't. I've been working just as hard as usual but the new challenge is the new guy. Being in this new relationship is definitely making it harder to lose weight. He has the metabolism of a freakin' animal, it's amazing. The man can eat 4000 calories a day and lose weight. I am having to work out twice a day just to not gain, it's ridiculous.

I have to keep reminding him that I can make my own plate when we eat and that I can't eat the same things he does. I tell him I didn't lose this weight cause I hate food (I LOVE FOOD) so putting it in front of me is not fair! At BBQs he's getting me a cheeseburger and hot dog at the same time! At dinner it's a LB of steak tips, good god! Then he wants to go out for ice cream, come on!!! LOL, I've been doing my best to not give in and eat everything he gives me but I am really lucky he has two hungry dogs that want to eat everything in sight.

Anyways, end of vent. I'm doing great this week and hoping for a loss on Thursday night. I went out with my mom tonight for her birthday and we had sushi and got pedicures. It was her first one ever and she really enjoyed it. I'm glad I could spend such a good time with her :)


  1. "The man can eat 4000 calories a day and lose weight."

    I know. Not fair!

  2. Sounds like a great guy! and now I'm salivating over all the talk of BBQs anbd ice cream... My husband is always trying to give me things I can't eat either... He's adorable and thoughtful but I can't say yes anymore... to the food at least....LOL. *Maria*-Blogger from "This one time at Band Camp..." Check out my blog at mybigfatbandgeeklife.blogspot.com

  3. You've worked so hard to get to where you are, and your guy wasn't around in the beginning for all of that, so make sure he understands how you really feel about being tempted by food and food opportunities. Because of that 4,000 calories thing, men are often clueless about the battle that we women have with food. Seems like no problem to them, but it's a big problem for us.

    Just sayin', not trying to sound preachy.

  4. Men are unfair hahahaha! They can easily lose the weight fast cos of their body structure. Hahahahaha!!! and it sucks sometimes to be in a relationship and u know that ur guy likes u the way u are and then u sometimes tend to lose track cos u know he doesnt really care how u look but then again, you worked so hard and this is for yourSELF so keep the fight goin' !!! :D You're doin great!!!
