I was stunned!
My DH said this to me the other day as I was walking down our short hallway.
I actually stopped in my tracks, turned around and stood there for a moment ~ not saying a word.
I couldn't see him, he was sitting in the living room. I wasn't sure what I had heard, I stood there trying to digest those words......not really knowing what he meant.....and then I continued out to the laundry room, quickly setting aside my curiosity and getting back to the ho-hum daily chores.
The next day, my 27 yr old grandson tells me that Gramps (DH) told him that he doesn't want me to get any skinnier. WHAT???????????
It seems that my DH, having been with me for 39+ years and my being at least 50 lb overweight for most of that time, is so used to loving me that way, that my ....."skinniness".....is an unknown and apparently a little uncomfortable for him to comprehend. He doesn't understand why now and not 30 years ago. (If I had the answer for that I would bottle and sell it)!
He told me yesterday that when he was watching me from the car when I was doing some laps at our local track that I looked awful skinny out there!
I was happy.
He was ??????? I'm not sure.
Has this happened to any of you?
I am determined to get to my goal I set for myself.
I will do it!!!
I do not think it is an unreasonable goal.....I feel very comfortable with my SP journey, even tho' weight has been a little slower in coming off this past month or so. But I am not gaining, and that is prime for me.
Thanks for all your support everyone....you're all
in my book!!!

I weighed in this morning.....down a pound. I was pleased.
Now.....it seems that each week when I do lose a pound or two.....I overindulge thinking I am rewarding myself (?) or perhaps I am celebrating (?) ......or am I punishing myself because I don't think I am worth it (?) or maybe I just don't want to believe it. (?)
I might as well roll the dice because I don't have a clue.
Tonight, I overindulged. At dinner and after dinner.
So I went back to my SparkPage and reread the poem I copied from another Sparker.
I am meditating on it seriously as I get ready for bed.
When you've eaten too much and you can't write it down,
And you feel like the biggest failure in town.
When you want to give up just because you gave in,
and forget all about being healthy and thin.
So What! You went over your points a bit,
It's your next move that counts...So don't you quit!
It's a moment of truth, it's an attitude change.
It's learning the skills to get back in your range.
It's telling yourself, "You've done great up till now.
You can take on this challenge and beat it somehow."
It's part of your journey toward reaching your goal.
You're still gonna make it, just stay in control.
To stumble and fall is not a disgrace,
If you summon the will to get back in the race.
But, often the strugglers, when losing their grip,
Just throw in the towel and continue to slip.
And learn too late when the damage is done,
that the race wasn't over...they still could have won.
Lifestyle change can be awkward and slow,
but facing each challenge will help you grow.
Success is failure turned inside out,
the silver tint in a cloud of doubt.
When you're pushing to the brink, refuse to submit,
If you bite it, you write it....But don't you quit!
