For me, one of the biggest deterrents to weight loss is laziness. After a stressful day it’s just so much easier to order a pizza or get Chipotle than it is to cook. But that’s exactly why we’ve been coming up with easy, low-carb, healthy, delicious meals.
Well, we’ve decided to do it again. Last year MR and I engaged in a friendly little weight-loss competition ahead of our holiday in Thailand. We raced to see who could lose 10 pounds the quickest and found great success. Sure, it took us an embarrassing 103 days to do it because we basically kept losing the last two pounds every week and then gaining them back every single weekend (thanks to booze, carbs and fun). But we did it, and that’s what matters. What does not matter is who won. (Me.)
Total score: -10.5
Well, we have officially passed the 100-day mark. Also known as the point in which this friendly competition – that was meant to be fun and last about six weeks – has turned into a somewhat sad and discouraging account of one reasonably fit couple’s weekly loss and gain of the same bloody two pounds.
