While Steve and I love most of the same foods and we are both relatively adventurous eaters, there’s one big difference. I’m trying to lose weight, and he works out with a trainer 4 times a week to build muscle. Translation: I can eat small portions of high carb, high protein, fatty (read: delicious) foods, and he can afford to eat a ton more. All my portions are measured and calculated (Weight Watchers- It is way easy, do it! I’ve lost about 20 lbs so far with basically no exercise), and his are generous and overflowing. And glistening with somesuch buttery and/or cheesy sauce(s).
And I am green with envy.
Jealousy aside, our divergent food-related goals are actually easy to overcome. On WW, you really can eat anything. Seriously. And I am telling you (ha), Jennifer Hudson would not lie. So I make dinner, serve myself first, and Steve can have the rest. Our summertime glut of veggies will make it easier: with some unfortunate exceptions (here’s looking at you, avocado, you delicious point-laden jerk), fruits and veggies are “free,” ie zero points! Never thought that would be exciting, but it is!
