OK, so ive been trying to get DH to really commit to working out. He does go to the gym 4-5 days a week, but he also goes out to eat that much on his break at work. Ive been threatning to take his debit card away, so he doesnt have that option, but have never fully commited.
So today i decided to offer up a bit of a challenge to him. $ 300 to the first one of us to lose 20lbs.
Now i do know that this is going to be alot harder for me, than for him, since i really only have 20lbs to lose, but i figured it would just push me that much harder to hit my goal weight of 130!! And i wouldnt mind paying 300, to help DH be healthier, after all i do love him and want him to be around and not have an early heart attack!
I also told him that we have to do weekly weighins, and they have to be at home in front of each other! Yikes!
So yea, this should really motivate me, and hopefully him.
just thought id share, were not really putting time limits on it, but i figure it will be a few months, so ill keep you posted on where we are.
That is awesome Shannon!!! Well, just remember, if he DOES take it seriously, guys lose it a lot faster & easier... I dunno why, just how it is. We had some friends do this, they just did a week long challenge, to see who could lose the most in a week and the prize was $1k (it was refund money or something)... but my point is, the challenge really got them motivated and they ended up splitting the money (even though he won) and they're continuing to work hard together. So I think it's great and sometimes that's what it takes to motivate a man, LOL
