I have had some fun and interesting comments in real life these past 2 weeks. It seems that, after going on 2 years of trying to lose weight, it is really showing or my RL acquaintances have just begun to notice. Several ladies from the church went on and on about it. This scares me a little because this can make me feel like I am done (I'm not!) and I stop trying. I don't want that to happen. Two or three folks at worked have commented on the change and one women who I hadn’t seen if almost a year told me that with my new hair style and the weight loss I looked twenty years younger and that she has never see me looking so happy.
I am posting this now because I think many of you might be like me and have to ease into things and give it some thought. If you are thinking about losing weight next year I just want to encourage you to jump right in. Don’t give Christmas or New Year’s Eve eating another thought just decides what you want to do after New Years.
Todd and Suzy at A.S.S. do a wonderful job with their diet group and they welcome everyone who would like to give it a try. They are encouraging and supportive as is everyone in the group and several of us email each other for more support. So I really encourage everyone to look through their blog and see how the spanking diet works.
Now if you are reading here you are probably a spanko and the idea or a spanking penalty probably intrigues you but I have has several friends who have said that their husband were not comfortable spanking their wife for gaining weight and I can see how this could be a touchy problem for some. But this was the hook for getting Nick to spank me in the first place.
We agreed on a very reasonable goal of ½ pound a week. We have varied the plan occasionally to make it work the best for us. What I needed was to be able to stand in front of the candy machine at work and think to myself ‘if I give in and scarf that down Nick is going to bust my butt’. That helped me make wise decisions. I really never thought of it a being spanked for gaining. I felt that I was spanked for making poor decisions, things like grabbing too many snacks, drinking real soft drinks or blowing off exercising. If I didn’t act like a grown up with my choices and decisions I got spanked. And for me it has really worked.
I had several spankings for my poor choice. However, the only time I felt like I got a really hard, serious spanking was about 6 to 8 weeks ago when I was really losing my focus. I was tired of the whole diet and I pretty much wanted to give up. Thankfully when you have a husband that cares enough to spank giving up is not an option.
I do think that this kind of plan needs a lot of communication and I think the idea must come from the one who wants to lose the weight and the one who is going to be spanked. But an important part of the spanking lifestyle is to better communicate.
I started gaining about 24 years ago and with each child the weigh stayed and I gained more on top of that. My weight is no secret now that we have said Eva and I weigh almost exactly the same now. I am only 5’3” and I had at one time gotten up to 218. I had lost a little when I asked Nick to help me but since that highest weight I have lost 40 pounds. I want to lose 20 more. It will probably take me close to a year but that’s no big deal. If it took 24 year to put it on and I can get it off in three I’m good with that.
It’s only been recently that I dropped into the 170’s, barely! My lowest reading so far is 178.2 and my hope and my goal is to stay in the 170’s though the holidays but if not I will be back there very soon! Okay folks this is my pitch for a lighter ands healthier lifestyle. Think it over and don’t forget to check out Todd and Suzy’s site for the great diet group and many other wonderful posts!
