Best husband in the world
Tuesday, January 17, 2012
I just want to fess and let people know that my current success is not my effort alone. I am only 4-6 lbs from my ideal weight and closing in and everyday I feel so healthy and fit. I have to admit that I owe my success to the best support team in the world. My husband of 38 years never fails to notice every inch I lose. He has accompanied me on all of my shopping trips to buy my new size 4 clothes and insists that I come out of the dressing room to show him. He is there to tell me how skinny and sexy I've become. He tells me that my new skinniness is on his mind all day and he can't wait to see me at night when we come back home from work.
Even though I think I've hit a plateau as I try to continue to lose, my husband is there to assure me that its normal and expected. The last few pounds are sometimes the hardest. I have been on this weight loss journey a few times in the past and each time I announce that we are going to start eat healthier he always says "Great, I can stand to lose a couple of pounds myself" He never complains about about low fat cheese, the absence of beef, the huge increase in veggies, the switch to whole wheat bread again or the proliferation of flaxseed meal in all of my baked food recipes.
This my day to let him know that I can't do this him. Thanks Mike!!
