Joanne Posted March 2, 2008 Share Posted March 2, 2008 Earlier this week, my DH "did" practice for my 9 year old's baseball team, which he is coaching. After that, we went to my oldest's practice. My DH (56, btw, with 4 adult boys and 2 grandkids) grabbed his glove and went into left field to "help". He exited the field after a total of nearly 4 hours of baseball practice and said "I have to lose 80 pounds". I said "Are you asking for my help?" (I lost 50 or so pounds since he's met me). He said "Yes" . "Will you read anything?" (Me) "No" "Then you will have to trust me. Do you want me to plan, encourage, cheerlead or kick in the butt?" "All of it". So, we've been doing low carb all week. It's the first time he's done low carb (he did one of the deliver meals to you plans back in the 80's). He's thrilled with the eggs and bacon and not so much with no biscuits. If you don't already know, the first time you do low carb, with a strict couple of weeks, the results are often dramatic. He's lost more than 8 pounds already! He trusts me, I think, but he still wants pancakes! What does this have to do with my 888 list? Gary Taubes, "Good Calories, Bad Calories" is on it. It should count for 2 books, IMO. Very challenging. I knew some of it having researched low carb before, but it's a great book. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
