I have decided that it is officially unacceptable that my husband weighs less than me. A lot less. Think double digits.
I once heard an older couple described as a "10." I didn't get it at first, until it was explained to me that the husband was the skinny "1" and the wife was the round "0."
I was not amused. Why? Because this analogy hit a little too close to home. It may be cute for couples to be "10s" when they are old...
Ryan and I are not old.
And just as I don't like being the round one, Ryan doesn't like being the twiggy one. It is not manly to weigh much less than your wife.
And so, we are on a mission. We have dubbed it O.F.U.R. or Operation Fatten-Up-Ry. Some of our ideas include the following:
1. Ryan drinks whole milk and uses half-and-half on his cereal.
2. On Sundays, we make Ryan a meal that he can eat each day for lunch while I am at school. This week, I made homemade chicken pot pie, and I used lots of butter and half-and-half in the sauce. Yummm. (I won't be eating any of it.)
3. Ryan will get together with his buddies more often for pizza and wings. (This will be good for his stress level and social life as well.)
4. When I make a healthy dinner, I will eat one serving, and Ryan will eat three or more.
What do you think? Will this work? What other suggestions do you have? When making your suggestions, please keep in mind that O.F.U.R. stands for Operation Fatten-Up Ry, not Rachel, and I cannot have junk food around the house to tempt me.
Speaking of junk...let's get some junk in Ry's trunk, shall we??
