Since we have no cute babies to blog about, you have to hear about us. I know, exciting right? May is probably one of the best months of the year. I have always loved the month of May, and this May is a little bit more memorable. It is exactly one year from when Dan started his weight loss plan and he has since lost 60 lbs! He has followed a strict diet and has never once cheated. The "Dan diet", as many family and friends have dubbed it, is NOT so easy to keep. To many of you who knew Dan in high school, this might be a bit unbelievable, if not comical, to think that he is on a diet. But it is true and it is working. Many times I have tried to do the "Dan diet" with my husband and I have not once made it through one day. My lack of self control when it comes to cookies and ice cream probably has something to do with my unsuccessful attempts, but it is hard to give up my love of good food, (good food = fattening food). In fact, the"Dan diet" has worked so well that on many occasions when he has tried to withdraw money from the bank they give him a hard time because he looks so different from his picture on his driver's license. Hahaha. Dan follows this strict diet 6 days a week and then on Saturday he can eat whatever he wants, (you should see the list of treats, Taco Bell, See's Chocolates, and Little Debbies he consumes on one Saturday, but that I will save for another post.)
Oh how we both look forward to Saturday's. We are such nerds, each week we plan our Saturday date all around good food. After we tried out the Melting Pot for our Anniversary, I am truly addicted and want to go every weekend for dessert. We went tonight and got the s'more chocolate fondue. A-MAZ-ING. I recommend it to all you chocolated lovers out there.
Not only does Dan follow this super-hero diet but he also runs 4 to 5 miles a day 6 days a week! I am so proud of my sweety for all his hard work and dedication, he accomplishes everything he sets his mind too. No matter what, he will always look good to me. Here are some pictures to show off his progress. And no, just in case you were gettin' worried about a big uproar over at the Walker residence, he is not mad at me for posting this old picture of him.
Then . . . . . . . and . . . . . . Now
Were one to venture into the Walker kitchen, all they would find is whole wheat bread, wheaties, brown rice, vegetables, skim milk, fruit, and an assortment of beans. Since Dan has been on his diet, this commercial sums up my daily struggle with the food situation in our home. Check it out, it's funny:
