I'm Only in Charge of Me

So, yesterday was weigh-in day. Did I make it to WW on time? Yes, I made it there all by myself! Despite the sickness lack of workouts, I'm down 1.6 pounds. Yay! My goal for next week is to lose 2 pounds and finally wave bye to the 300s for good.

As I said, I went to WW by myself. Giggleman accepted overtime again and refused to get up for the only time he could go to. I'm sick of fighting with him about it...I can only control myself and if he is going to be a piss ant, I'm not going to even try. It's not my money he is wasting by not showing up! Showing him how to track his food doesn't make him keep it up. Rolling my eyes and complaining just makes him be more stubborn about making changes. So, I have to change my tactics or let him figure it out himself.  So for now, I'll concentrate on myself and if any of my changes rub off on him, woohoo. At least he has no problem with going to the gym!

In BLBE news, my feed reader is exploding with all the blogs I had never discovered before. Wow! I think I've made it up to the Hs...so much more to go!  This is great and I'm so glad I decided to join.

Way to go on getting to your WI and your loss. It's so true what you said. You can only control what you do. I have the same battle with my man as well but I've come to that same realization.

I'm loving the BLBE challenge too!! Keep up the great work.

Great job this week. You will break the barrier next week for sure! You're right - only hubby can work hubby's program. I'm doing my best to set a good example with for my family, but I can only control the meals I cook. They weren't pleased with my health OP meal tonight, but there was nothing else to eat!

Great job! You can lead a mule to water but you can't make him drink, sooner or later he'll realize for himself what needs to be done to change your lifestlye habits :)

Too true! As much as you want hubby to do this you can't make him. I'm glad to hear you made it to the meeting this week. I'll be cheering for you to hit the 2's this week. You can do it!

Congrats on your loss! It took my hubby a long time to get on board with weight loss. I learned that you need to do what is best for YOU in your life. Keep up the good wrok!

Good job! And I agree, you can't make anyone join your weight loss goals. My husband still thinks "low carb" is the way!

Um, last night he at 3/4 of a 1.5 pound meatloaf!

Just do it for yourself!
