Excuses. I know. I'm in control of what I eat/drink and how much/little I exercise.
That being said, I had a couple of surprises today.
Surprise #1: I lost another pound this week. Just a pound but that's better than I expected.
Surprise #2: As of this morning, I am able to cinch my belt one notch tighter. Hopefully I can keep it that way.
Christian and I went out for a walk this evening and I told him I was fat. He asked my why I was fat and I told him it's because I drink too much soda and don't exercise enough. He asked why I drink soda and I told him I like it, but I shouldn't because it's not healthy. Christian then lectured me about how I should drink milk instead because it has calcium in it and that I should eat more fruits and vegetables for vitamins.
I don't know how my six year old got so smart.
I told him to scold me any time he sees me drinking soda. "Christian," I said, "if you ever see me drinking soda, say 'stop that.' Tell me that I shouldn't be drinking that."
He liked that idea and proceeded to tell his best friend that he's going to tell his dad to stop drinking soda.
But I'm down a pound so that is a victory. I'm getting skinnier - albeit slowly. Now I just need to get rid of that extra fluff below my chin.
And no, I'm not just talking about the beard. Although, that needs to go too.
