KIND of a scale victory? But the part that's MY victory has nothing to do with the scale, so I'll share
My husband has been trying to lose weight for a good year now, to no avail. He's tried "everything," except for tracking calories. That was the one thing he did NOT want to do, even though he watched me have great success with it. He just wouldn't have it.
Last week he opened up about his struggles with his weight again. I assured him that I loved him regardless, but if he was willing to commit to just 7 days of calorie tracking, that I would help him with it and I promised he would see a drop if he took it seriously.
He has taken it seriously! He's lost 7 lbs in 5 days. He understands that much of it is probably water weight at this point, but this is the most significant numerical progress he's ever seen, so he's excited and now he doesn't want to stop.
I'm so excited for him. He's my best friend and I love him so much. I just want him to see himself in the way that I do, and I know this will be a huge transformation for him, not only physically but mentally.
