The more the merrier! Unfortunately for me, when I stopped buying junk food and soda and worked out a lot, I lost about 15 pounds and my already small waisted fiance lost 20 pounds without any gym involvement! We both stepped on the scale yesterday and he's about 30 pounds lighter than I am! Granted, he's 3 inches shorter than I am and has a smaller frame, but GEEZE!

It reminds me of that slimquick (or some other bogus diet pill) commercial where the woman is doing everything she can to lose weight and drops about a pound while her husband drops lots of pounds.

LOL... there was another commercial I saw before that had animated characters. It showed a man, woman, and a dog... all over weight. Then it mentions how drinking more water can help weight loss... shows the man and dog slimmer, but the woman the same.. then went into information about some pill thing for woman.

It just reminded me of that when you said that. Men can definitely lose weight waaayyyy easier than women it seems without trying.

Yeah, I think that's a different commercial for the same pill!

I think it has to do with men having a higher metabolism because they are built to have a lower fat to muscle ratio where as women need more fat to make the babies. Unfortunately the fat we need for that doesn't burn calories as much as muscle, so we're more susceptible to the extra blub.

OK, so I have been going back and forth on playing this season...last season I got within a couple pounds of my goal weight and I know there is no way I can WIN because I don't really have a lot left to lose.

 

However, we have been camping this week while FI's kids are on spring break and I have been a total PIG!!! I'm sure I've packed quite a few pounds back on, but the crux of my decision making process was about 15 minutes ago when I went to make myself my oatmeal for breakfast and instead of having it, I had a handful of tortilla chips and 5 marshmallows. WTF? Really, who does that?

 

So, sitting in a beach chair, snuggled in a blanket because its still cold out, and watching the CO river flow by I have pay pal-ed Ann from my blackberry (Ann let me know if you don't get it) and vented to you all - thx. :). My running shoes are here and I should go for a run, but I'll probably sit here and enjoy my mimosa and the quiet while the kids are fishing..

 

Long story short - I'm back for season 6!

Yay Deanna, welcome back to BL! Hope you're enjoying your trip.

 

Girls, those commercials are so true. I love when the guy gets skinny and the woman just loses her boobs. So not fair! lol

Wow I should see if my FI wants to do it is as well. he could def stand to lose a few lbs. But I doubt he'd get really into it. But if he did I may do better bc we'd b competing against eachother. I'll talk to him and let u all know.

Ha I asked Joe today, and he said no. he needs to lose weight but just keeps putting it off. We'll start playing alot of tennis here in the next week, and then he'll lose a lot of weight just from playing, but he said he would starve himself to win. I tried to explain to him thats not the point, but he wouldn't listen! I don't really want him to compete cause I think the boys will win. They can lose weight SOOO much easier than woman! It would only discourage me more.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
