Cake and Weight Loss

I'm so proud of Beau.

He's dropped almost 40 pounds in two months.

He has been super disciplined in his dieting and it shows. He was able to wear clothes that I had bought him years ago that were too snug. He's definitely dropped one pants size, possibly two. He is lookin' good!

He's warned me to hold on tight to him because the "ladies" are going to start coming out of the woodwork for him.

Ladies ... I will not hesitate to beat you down. This hunk of man is mine!

He's been on the Take Shape for Life Plan, which includes Medifast meals. He eats 5 small meals (and I mean SMALL) throughout the day and eats one meal of lean meat and veggies.

I thought for sure I'd lose some weight too while he was on it since I would be eating most of what he's eating for his meals. But ... alas ... NO.

You see ... I have a tiny problem with a love of potatoes and cake.

Seriously. Since he's been on it, all I want is cake. And, I've never been a cake person. Not at all. But, I'm not sure what's gotten into me. I WANT CAKE.

I think it might have to do with the season down here (Mardi Gras) and the only part I partake in is the eating of the king cake.

I actually bought only a slice of king cake at a local store on my way home from work one day. I told the girls we had to hurry up and eat it before Beau got home so that he wouldn't be tempted in any way. We split that sucker and hid all evidence at the bottom of the garbage can.

That's probably the reason and a perfect example of why I'm not losing any weight with him.

But ... all is not lost ...K Belle has suggested we start a program together throughout the month of February. She's calling it "Fitness February". I'll give more details this week. Should be interesting seeing as the only exercise she does is pull the recliner lever back to watch TV.

Speaking of cake ... watch this ... you won't be disappointed!

Listen, I know I'm preggo and all that, but I still don't think preggo is an excuse for as many sweets as I've been consuming. I ate any entire bag of nilla wafers within a weekend. WITHIN A WEEKEND. And was totally unashamed, as I'm posting this on your blog....
