An Amazing Mystery

I will never understand the amazing mystery of the manly metabolism.  After my mom got done telling her tale of stepping on and off the scale 2 times, then moving it into the light again for a 3rd time to see her magnificent 9 pound weight loss (see post before this one), she announced that without even trying Dad had lost 6 pounds himself.  Dad does not need even need to lose 6 pounds.  She thought this was funny.  Ya, ha.  So after I hung up the phone I ran back to my wonderful manly hubby and asked if he had lost any weight these last couple of weeks.  You guessed it.  He has lost 7 pounds.  This is a mystery to me.  I never no, no never, lose weight without trying.  On a more serious thought though, it made me think about how much my eating lifestyle affects my family.  I am still thinking about this;  it is something I hope to keep thinking about!

I cannot believe day 19 is almost over.  Just two more days of this Clean detox.  I did 51 minutes on the elliptical today, got all my water in, and ate correctly.  I am just at 14 1/2 pounds.  The weight loss is really slowing.  My books arrived today along with the 30 Day Shred DVD.  I hope to get some reading in this weekend!

I swear my husband can lose weight just by looking at a salad. It is crazy. And it seems if I even smell a cinnamon roll, I've put on at least 5 lbs. I don't understand it.
