It was just about 4 months ago, the end of July, when Garrett decided he was going to loose weight. When Garrett decides to do something then that is it...... he does it. So for the past 4 months he has been doing the same things pretty much everyday, with a consistency that I just cannot believe. Every morning he has two packets of instant organic oatmeal. For lunch he eats a 6 inch Subway sandwich. Then for dinner, it is whatever I make or a few times a week we have take-out. Add in a yogurt and a piece of fruit for a snack plus a daily workout on the eliptical machine and we now have a 40 pounds lighter Garrett. I'm so proud of how he has been sticking to his plan!
I just can't understand why I can't loose the 10 pounds that have been haunting me since having the boys ("sure, I'll have a cookie"). I mean I exercise ("ok, I'll have a piece of your Halloween candy Kevin"). I eat right ("well, it's a party....I guess I'll have a piece of cake"). I ran a marathon for goodness sake! ("yeah, I deserve three desserts!!!") Can anyone help me figure out what I'm doing that Garrett's not??? :)
Anyway, now you all know his secret. Eating right and exercise. Maybe he should write a book!
