Ms. Wang, my husband agrees completely!

"You don't alter VERA to fit your body, you alter your body to fit VERA!" - Bride Wars

I had about 7 extra pounds sticking to me like white on rice that were accumulated during all of my fall travel and over the holidays. I finally got sick of it and I have been "dieting" (I use the term extremely loosely) for about 3 weeks and the majority of the extra weight is gone. Fyi - my only tricks are portion control and lots of water. Anyway, I was cooking dinner the other night, the Beau walked in and tugged on my semi-sagging pants and our conversation went something like this:

Him: You are about to lose your pants there buddy!
Me: I know man,what are we going to do about that? (thinking that the only logical answer to that question would be for him to say that I needed to buy new ones)
Him without missing a beat: I guess you better start eating more! Exits room.

Seriously? Seriously. At my house we apparently don't alter (or buy) clothes to fit our bodies, we alter our bodies to fit our existing clothes. You can't win for losing at my house. And I mean that in the most literal way possible.

haha!!! That is too funny! I love the fact that he called you buddy!

Lauren said...

Ha Ha...sounds just like a typical man.

Sara said...

That is hilarious! Men just don't have the need to buy new things like we do! They could wear the same clothes for years and never get tired of them!

Practically Perfect... said...

That's funny :-) And congrats on the weight loss!

Lis said...

Hahaha that is cracking me up!!

Men just don't get it!

Anytime we need a little reminder they really *are* wired differently, we read a classic like this!

Great post Miss Belle,

Piper Jacquelyn said...

That's so cute! I wish I had that problem - needing to eat MORE, that is....

Am said...

You gotta love the man that thought first you should eat more instead of being excited that you were getting skinnier. Congrats on the weight loss!

Miss Type-A said...

aww your man sounds so funny! men are so different than we are!

NNS said...

I agree with the beau. Clothes are too expensive to buy new ones as much as I gain and lose weight(well actually just gain for the past couple of years). HOWEVER, if you lose as much weight as I need to - then you are allowed to buy a whole new wardrobe as a reward - no questions asked!:)(great motivation that way)

Tina said...

There must be something wrong with my boyfriend then because we had almost the same conversation and he did say 'I guess we need to go shopping then'. No wonder I love him!

Mandy Rose said...

That is too funny! Hey, I would take it as a compliment that he thinks you are so skinny you need to eat more!! Men crack me up!

Life of a Savannah Bride said...

You're losing weight for my wedding, aren't you? Awww how sweet! Just kidding. That's great! I'm still trying to lose.

Barefoot in the Park said...

sounds like something that would come out of my bf's mouth!

Andi said...

Limey calls me Buddy too. He would have told me to get a belt though instead of eat more. If I say I want a new sweater or something from a catalog he says, "there is this free boutique just around the our closet. Look for something like that in there"

Andi said...

Oh, forgot to answer your question! For the soup I usually cut up bite size peices and saute them with some chile powder. It is more restaurant like when the you boil the chicken though. That's also easier. Next time I'm going to cook the chicken all day in the slow cooker with the bottle of salsa then at the end add the other ingredients. I think that would make the chicken more tender.

Milltini said...

So funny! They really are from Mars...

Julie said...
