It’s a new year’s resolution common among women and men: to lose weight. We are now in week 4 of the proposition.
My husband has lost 8 – 10 pounds, while I have lost and regained the same two in a cycle, not on a cycle, as I should have been.
To account for this disparity, I note that we have chosen different friends:
He has Will Power as a tight companion, while I enjoy Ginni Tonic. She’s a Limey.
My friend Cheryl like Abe Ear, while Diana likes Sham Payne, who is very bubbly.
Who’s your weight gain partner, plump-and-perfect reader?
Honest ear? Wow, that is cool. Always there for you!!!
Hmm…my weight gain partner is Hub E’s habits. 🙂 One of the professors in our school is doing a study about new, co-habitating relationships’ effect on eating. When first married, your habits start norming to each other. While I don’t indulge in all of Dan’s habits (desire for oreos and chips), he does l.o.v.e popcorn. He makes it; I eat it. More carbs than I should indulge? Yes.
I also sit A LOT at my job; and am not motivated to work out at home – because I just want to spend time with Dan – who wants to spend time relaxing on the couch. I lost my work-out partner when moving to Arizona.
The long and short, though, I lack Will Power. I’d rather hang out on Lazy Street. Maybe my friend is “Poor Me”?
Jessica, you are a funny, zestful writer.
Pop Corn is a life partner of the family we’re in, Jessica, though I used to tell people that one of our secrets to happy marriage was that Larry didn’t crave ‘my’ Mama Chocolate and I didn’t eat ‘his’ Pop Corn…
Well, I crossed over to his POV. He is a strong protagonist, the leading man of my life. He also enjoys Abe Ear like Cheryl.
My friend is Hindu: Seeit Eatit.
So,Jim, is it more fun to chew the fat verbally or literally? You are a Hoot!
