Well I hope this is the right place to post this.
Today my husband said to my son "I'm going to get yelled at about this but I think you and your sister have done more excersize in your life's combined then your mom ever has!"
Well this made me very angry and upset and made me want to come in the house from the shop and just eat everything is site. Don't worry everyone I didn't come in and eat anything, as a matter of fact all I've had today to eat is my ceral at breakfast and then supper. I was so mad I could have spit nails. I lost 6 pounds in the last week and that made me feel good so I just remembered that and will keep doing my best.
But I tell you hubby sure made me angry.

I'd be mad as well. You've lost 6lbs, so who's had the last laugh this week?

Thought this would be handy for you next time hubby mocks your lack of execise. Tell him you're too busy doing housework to go the gym.
How many calories burned doing house work?
In: Diet and Weight Loss, Calorie Count [Edit categories] [Edit]
This is a great chart.
Also to find how much you can eat and still lose weight use this:
To calculate your daily calorie limit in order to lose weight, follow this formula. Take your target weight, multiply it by 4.35 and add 655. Take your height in inches and multiply it by 4.32. Take your age and multiply it by 4.7.
Subtract the age total from the height total, then add the new total to your weight total.
This number represents the amount of calories you can consume each day and still drop pounds
Type of housework
Calories burned per half-hour
Doing laundry 73
Making the bed 68
Washing the dishes 78
Scrubbing the floors 129
Rearranging furniture 204
Yard work 170
Washing windows 102
Washing the car 102
Mowing the lawn 187
Shoveling snow 204
Carrying a small child (up to 15 lbs.) up and down stairs 289

mother christmas...and I hope you let dh know how bad that was for him to say.. BTW...does he have any weight to loose?
I think that's absolutely fantastic you've lost 6 lbs. I'd be estatic if I could just loose 1/4th lb right now. My scales seem to be stuck again.
I love your house cleaning calorie burning list...I hope you showed this to dh..Sounds like you have a good head start with that loss. Keep up the good work and don't dwell on any negatives you may hear. Just stay on your own track and you'll make it with or without going to the gym.

Hubby is now out of the dog house. I told him last night that I wasn't happy with him about what he said and he said sorry, but he knew I was still made at him.
By the way you can add another 2 pounds to my total.

mother christmas...another huge Congrats to you!

Well done, mother christmas!! Your hubby is going to have to eat those words, methinks. haha5758

Oh Mother Christmas I am sorry your hubby had to be so naieve. I would have had a fit too. To tell the children that was not appropriate and it tells them that they can be rude to others. He should have never said that but now that he has I hope he apologizes in front of the kids.
Congratulations on your 8 pound loss. Keep it up.

How are you losing the weight? I have zero will power, I need to put an end to this weight gain, as I get older a few more pounds slip on every year.
