Do You Remember.....?

Do you remember those weight loss commercials where the husband and wife and both sitting there all chubby?  They decide they are going to cut out pop.....or start eating salads?  Then man proceeds to lose 20 pounds or something and the wife loses 1?

Oh, look....I found one of them on YouTube!

"Now, we are both unhappy!" is another one....

It is so and so funny!

"I haven't had bread in 2 years!"


We have had a little taste of this around here.  My husband decided that he was "fat"....because he could no longer fit into his clothes from high school....and he had to move to the 4th hole on his belt loops.  But, you have seen pictures of him.  He is NOT a big man.

Anyway, he started having a few more salads....and exercised a handful of times and voila!  This morning he announced he was victorious.  He is back on the 3rd hole and no longer had a gut.

Yay him, right?

I have pretty much completely given up on my weight for the time being.  It is too exhausting to think about food all the time. To think about what you can and can't eat.  To hear the whiners and the complainers about what is or isn't in the pantry/fridge.  And, mostly because, back when I was trying, I was exercising almost daily, did all the stuff you were supposed to do and....well, you the videos again above.  Sigh.

But, I am going to try to go back to the Trim Healthy Mama way of eating (separating carbs and fats - no potatoes, rice, sugar) and see what happens. Because, when I was following their guidelines before all my thyroid stuff happened, I did actually lose 45 pounds and kept it off - until everything with my thyroid made things sort of blow up in my face.....and I gained it all back.   I have seen some spectacular transformations by people that seem a lot like me - so maybe there is hope.

So what does that mean for you?  It means that you will be hearing about it whether you want to or not, because it will have to be a big part of my thought life and all of that jazz.

On that note, I will leave you with one more of those cartoon thingies.  By the way, I am not endorsing this product....or planning to use it.....I just love the spot on commercials!
