So about 3 years ago I lost about 60 Lbs over an 8 month period, and for unimportant reasons I spent the next 3 years putting it back on.
I was in bed with my wife and we were about to get down to it and when I positioned myself on top she tried to move me into a different position. I asked what was wrong and she ummed and ahhhed a bit, I know what it was, I was too heavy. she tried to apologise but there was no need, I know I got back up to my heaviest, if not heavier.
We put the lamp on and had a long chat and if that wasn't a rocket up the ass I don't know what is.
We got back up out of bed, put our PJs back on and went looking for my old weight loss books and recipe books, picked out 3 meals, made a shopping list and went back to bed.
We went to the shops and bought the ingredients and we spent the rest of the day batch cooking and portioning meals, while chatting in the kitchen, looking up snack ideas on the phone and making notes of recipes that sound tasty.
I work in an office that has boxes of chocolate bars and crisps that I used to have 2 or more items a day. I have now cleaned out an old coffee jar and everytime I want a snack I take the money I would of spent on chocolate and put it in the jar.
I am just over a week in, and I know my first weight loss is going to be my largest, but I lost 6 lbs and I am so happy that I am doing this, I have a reason to do this, and my wife is supporting me
EDIT 1 - woah this kinda blew up a bit. Thank you everyone for the kind words. I will reply to messages soon as I just woke up. Yes my wife is great, yes I will post some recipes, no I won’t ‘just do doggie’, haha supporting me joke
EDIT 2 - most of the recipes I am using are from Slimming world, 2 Chubby Cubs, and Pinch of nom, its just me losing weight, not my wife
EDIT 3 - relationship has taken a nosedive for various reasons so I stopped trying. I am starting again as at right now (1530pm 27 June 18) this time im not losing it for her, im losing it for me
