Obedience, or Lack Thereof

Coach and I joined Weight Watchers together so that there would be this friendly competition/support automatically built in. Yeah, it’s not so friendly.

Coach gets to eat twice as much food as I do, so tonight, AFTER DINNER, he had to try to eat 9 more points worth of food just to meet his caloric requirement for the day.

9 points is half of my caloric requirement for the entire day.

I’m saying ugly words in my mind.

Anyway, as I was meticulously planning my meals for tomorrow, he was in the kitchen on a feeding frenzy – an apple, peanut butter, wheat thins, almonds, and on and on and on. And he kept asking me to look up the point values for him.

Sensitive guy isn’t he?

Afterwards, I went outside and wrestled a squirrel for a pinecone and some berries. Nutritious snack; lots of fiber.

He thrives on this stuff- math, boundaries, rules, structure, you know- a program.

Me? Not so much. I have a little bit of an obedience problem. I don’t like to be told what to do. HATE IT.

I wasn’t always that way- I was the obedient child, the rule follower, the rule lover. I just got over it.

Way over it.

Anyway, we’re doing it for better or worse. And so far, it’s been worse. Coach has already sabotaged me by throwing my point-friendly lunch away- the perfectly good pork tenderloin and green beans that I made earlier this week. He has this OCD thing where he looks to fill up a trash bag so he can take it out- and he meticulously goes through the refrigerator and throws out leftovers.

Then he claims he doesn’t know what happened to it. I cannot tell you how much perfeclty good food has vanished into thin air, but I can tell you this- I’ve started to call the fridge Houdini.

Coach really doesn’t appreciate it so much.

But I’ll tell you this, if we go to the meeting next week and he drops 17 pounds after eating like a king all week and I lose .2 pounds on twigs and berries, well, someone else might get Houdini-ed right on out of here.

See y’all!
