Yes each and every day multiple times by my son, husband, mom....and I right back at them....I always make it a point to make sure my last words to any one in my family are "I love you" as you never ever know what life brings in the next minute, hour, day

I do hear it and say it and it is nice but I also think demonstrating your love through actions are much more important than just saying the words "I love you" daily.
I did not grow up in a family where we told each other "I love you" every day but knew we were loved and cared for.

Weight is the result of what you have been doing for the past week.

Multiple times by DH, moms 1 & 2, and dear friends. And I should have listed God first, who in turn has taught me to say I love you to myself!

Self-talk: Often through the day say "Stop eating; I can have more later."

GOAL: Reduce A1C,BP,tryglicerides,and weight. HOW? Low carb plan with lots of veggies and water aerobics at least 3X week.

One person said that when someone dies it's to late , so its good to say it while they are around, I totally agree with that.
I also made my husband and my son a box of love one Christmas and it was made in case something ever happened to me they could look back into the box and see all the little hand written notes telling them all the wonderful things I love about them.
My son is an only child, so someday when we go I want him to be able to see something from me in my handwriting telling him he was / is very much loved that he'll always be my heart and soul even in death.
I gave them both one for Christmas, because some days when your down and you feel as if no one cares you can look in that box and feel the love someone has for you, I mean it doesn't mean I have to die to be an inspiration to him someday . Maybe when he's older and is on his own if he's going through something he can look through the box and maybe feel a little better, but I always wanted him to have some kind of remembrance from me cause my son is very close to me.

yep. DH I and tell each other at the end of every phone call and when either of us is leaving the house. Also when we say good night.

mom, dad, and sis all tell each other when we are saying goodbye (on the phone or in person).

when you lose somebody, and it's too late to let them no how you feel, you'll never regret the times you DID say 'I love you'

My hubby says it every single day , I don't even know how many times a day because we constantly say it to one another and my son is the same way. Every time he leaves the house before he leaves he gives me kisses , hugs and says I love you (hubby), I even go to the window like a school girl something I've always done and blow kisses he stops in front of the house and waits for it hahaha
My son says it a lot to me also, just the way we brought him up with a lot of love and gives me a kiss before school and says it and then before bed every night he says l love you mom and gives me a kiss on the cheek.
Sometimes one of us will just say it out of the blue when we're in the car or watching a show together and then we'll all say it or we won't say it to one so we can hear hey what about me? hahaha teasing them of course.
I get texts from hubby at work all the time 831, 831 which is inscribed on our wedding rings meaning 8 letters, 3 words, 1 meaning I love you!
I just think it's so important for everyone to hear the words daily from someone who means it and I hope all my sparkers do hear it! emoticon
