Okay. First of all, I don't really "advertise" this, so...feel special. ;)
I started Weight Watchers in January. I didn't really tell too many people because I just don't like the idea of being on a diet. But WW is online and easy to do, and I'm down with online and easy. That works for me.
I lost five pounds (I was shooting for 15), and, really, if I just lose five more, I'll be THRILLED. Anyway, I'm digressing. Because this post isn't about me. Not much, that is.
It's about Superman.
Superman decided to start WW. He did it before our wedding and lost a ton of weight. Unfortunately, he got off of it and gained it back. (The Married 19 hit us both.)
I signed him up for WW today. Now, I get 21 points. That's about equivalent to 1260 calories a day. I get to eat whatever I want...but it is limited. But not too much. Or so I thought.
Now, I know that Superman is a boy and that he weighs more than me and has more weight to lose than I do. I EXPECTED him to be allowed more points than me.
He gets 37 points. A day. THIRTY-SEVEN POINTS!!!!
That's sixteen points more than I get EACH DAY. For lunch I ate two pieces of cheese toast. It was like...five points. Maybe six. I can't remember. But that's about a third of my daily points.
Superman ate a lean cuisine and TWO granola bars. It was 11 points.
That's LESS THAN A THIRD of his daily points.
So not fair.
He's in the kitchen making omelets right now. Well, maybe just an omelet. Because HE has points to spare.
Me? I used the last of mine of the day on Indian food.
And he just started eating his third granola bar of the day.
