The Bestest Man Ever

Tuesday, March 11, 2008

I have the Bestest Man Ever! Dan has been my #1 supporter and is completely and totally behind my new goals. Yesterday he proved it in a completely cute way and I wanted to share. A little history first. We LOVE tequilla and have been known on many occasions to drinks shots with nothing but a plate of limes to go with them. One of the first things I did was to give up "empty" calories so "goodbye tequilla" at least during the first stage of my journey. In fact, I've had tequilla one time since the 1st of January and it was a weekend at the beach trip.

I weighed in yesterday and was down to 222 on the truck scale, 18 pounds gone! I told Dan over the phone because I was so excited that I had lost my 2 pounds for the week in spite of having an awesome dinner out Friday night. I got home and he was in the garage and told me "I got drinks for us to celebrate your weight loss". I said "Drinks? What kind of drinks?" to which he replied "What kind do you think?". I cringed inside because as much as I thought it was cute that he wanted to celebrate, I hated the thought of tequilla when I've been trying soooo hard to stay with my diet and I really didn't want to have the calories. Anyway, we got into the kitchen and he said "Look, faux tequilla!". He had Crystal Light in a patron bottle, 2 shotglasses, and a plate of limes. So we had a shot of Crystal Light together and he gave me the scale he bought for me yesterday. I weighed this morning fully dressed and again on the truck scale after I got here to see if it was the same and it was. At least I know the truck scale is accurate.

Like I said, I have the Bestest Man Ever!

    That was cute! I have more virtual drinks now, than real ones. Tequila is a great choice, nothing like a shot of Patron before a nice cool margarita, ahh the good ole days, lol. But wait, isn't that why I am here? Nowadays it's protein shakes and crystal light, and if I do have a real drink it's usually rum and diet coke, with lime, only 100 cals per 1 shot glass.
