These are my ‘lyrics’ to A Day in the Life
Got on the scales today,
The needle stopped at thirteen stone or so.
But what made me rather sad
Was that someone else was feeling down,
Having had the needle run around and around….
I’d like to see that poundage fall.
I have always been heavier than Hubby, at one stage by 20 kilos, but this reduced to around 12kg or 2 stone (28lbs) up to a couple of years ago.
2015-16 saw me gain a little which turned out to be more than I thought when I joined SW and had an official weigh in. It was a shock and wake up call.
It hasn’t been until recently that I have been chasing that elusive 5 pound loss to catch him up so that we actually weigh the same.
The thing is, he’s catching me up, and that is not good………….. not good at all.
Our little experiment where he was eating more or less the same as me turned the tables somewhat and he put weight on. He hasn’t lost it, and is now just a pound lighter than I.
This is not good for his mobility and circulatory problems, so has to be addressed without delay.
My food diary will be a guide for both of us now.
Tonight, we’ll be having a Di’s-made chicken curry, and I shall be adding extra carrots and onions to the mix. Lunch will be a salad roll for him and plated salad for me.
Maybe it is the heat as the pair of us have been sweating buckets.
However, sweating heavily does not reduce the fat pounds.
