The Wait Loss

I had been trying desperately to lose 20 pounds since my last baby. I’d bought Pilates videos, aerobics videos and a set of light weights that I strapped around my ankles everywhere I walked. I was trying to run ( but not very good at it, so ended up speed-walking most of the time). It seemed like there was no hope.

A few weeks passed and I carried on with my programs, weights and walking as well as carrying around a baby that was now about 15 pounds all day long.  Something had to break. Finally, I stepped on the scale and saw that there was a ten-pound difference. Elated, I ran down the stairs, straight to my husband and was so excited that I was practically jumping on the spot and blurted “Look! Look! I’ve lost 10 pounds!! Can you tell?”

“Turn around” he said. “Mmm hmm”. He was calm, his face expressionless.

I was so excited!

“Yep, he said, when you turned around, I found it!”

Deflated, defeated and discouraged, I went upstairs to plan how to possibly really look like I’d lost some weight.

To be continued….

  1. I actually didn’t want to “like” this Easter – how cruel! Ten pounds is a great start no matter where it comes from! haha Don’t be discouraged. I power walk daily and it really does tone you…keep going! ~Karen~


    • Dearest Karen this was so long ago.. yes, he was cruel, and is no longer a part of my life nor my children’s. I’ve gained more than that since those years, but he was a mean man and I was young and foolish.
      Thank you for your caring words and kindness – you are such a good spirited woman.



  2. As I was reading this all I could think was just like a man. When we loss weight after having children it’s an amazing feeling for us but I think men seem to just think okay…whatever. Ten pounds is a big deal. I was overjoyed to lose 5 pounds. Shake it off and keep it moving!


    • It is so true.. you just have to keep going.. and going. Now twice the age I was then, it is much more difficult to get the pounds to stay away. My hips are like magnets for wandering calories. 🙂


    • Hahahaha – it feels like a century ago and I wish I could be back to the weight I was then when I thought I had to lose weight!!!!
      I just love good food and wine too much to ignore the lovely tastes that entice my tastebuds and cause me to quiver while waiting for it to be ready…
      Weight loss? Yea, right!
