Life’s Not Fair…

In the words of Scar, from Disney’s The Lion King, “Life’s not fair.”  This weekend when weigh-in day rolled around for Dale and I, I found him in the bathroom stepping on and off the scale with a bewildered look on his face.  He told me that he didn’t know why, but he had lost 6.9 lbs in a week.  We are used to the slow but steady Weight Watchers recommended loss of 1/2 to 1 lb per week.  We are, unfortunately, also used to our recent backslide of weight gains.  He was convinced something must be wrong with the scale, so I stepped on fully expecting to be delighted as well.  Well, guess what?  I had gained .4 lbs!!!  LIFE’S NOT FAIR!  I know, from past experience, that it is easier for men to lose weight at this age than women.  I also realize Dale has more to lose than I do at this point and that that loss represents a lot of water weight.  But it still doesn’t take the sting away.  So congratulations Dale!  Keep up the good work!  So proud of you!!  But, life’s not fair.  🙂scale-diet-fat-health-53404.jpeg
