Okay...so I am the positive American girl who dreams big, sees the glass as half full, does now and thinks later...a true Gemini! My man is a skeptical, non-dreaming Kiwi man who is cautious and glass half empty!!! But I think I am finally winning the war on minimal thinking at our house!!!
I am so proud of my commitment to workout everyday...even with all my success and my job helping others lose weight, I have never been committed like I am now! I have lost lots of weight and feel accountable to Facebook, my boss, myself, my clients, and even the FourSquare App on my iPhone holds me accountable! But yesterday this was a conversation in our house:
Me: "I still don't like how I look in the mirror at the gym"
Man: "At least you can look in the mirror at the gym"
Man: It means you're actually at the gym!!!
Good point! I shut up and went to take a shower with a big grin on my face and a wee bit of shock!!! He has loved me fatter, thinner and in between. When we met online, he actually responded to a photo that was a heavier me that I forgot to change and had since lost weight...so I actually had to tell him I was 40 pounds lighter!! LOL he met me at what I call my BEST and then I moved here to be with him and I had to learn to eat all over again because there isn't anything I ate everyday that I can get here...except some produce! And things are expensive. So he watched me pack it all back on and be miserable...and loved me! He says I am more myself when I am where I am now...my attitude and confidence is what makes him love me...not what the scale says. Whatever makes me happy!
So...just when ya' think you're talking to a brick wall....
