Life isn't Fair

I was confronted with another moment where life isn't fair this week when we realized that over the last year- year and a half, my husband has lost about 65 pounds. How, you might ask.

By doing absolutely nothing. He joined a gym and went 4 times. The biggest change that I can put my finger on is that he has stopped skipping so many meals. So in other words, he lost weight by eating.

I know all the reasons men lose weight easier than women, but still the intellectual part of my brain is just going to have to bow down to the whiny, selfish emotional side and let me complain a bit.

As for me, I am still a non-smoker. Just over two months now. Due mainly to the weather here in the south, where it can't seem to decide if it is going to be warm or cold, my sinuses have been driving me crazy. So most of the last two month have been spent coughing and blowing my nose. Makes the gym loads of fun. I try, but some days I don't seem to get very far.

Still, since I've been here, I have lost a total of 30 pounds. Almost 10% of my body weight. And most importantly I feel better.

My asshat husband lost 30 pounds by doing nothing as well. I busted my ass by going to the gym and changing the way that I eat and I lost 65 pounds, but I lost it in a year and a half. He dropped his in just a few months. Sometimes I wish I were a man. Sigh.
