From the 1st day I meet my husband in November of 2009, I have been on the journey to reclaim my health again.
For our 2nd meeting together, I broke out the pics of me at 160 lbs, I had lost 187 lbs and 75 inches with a weight loss program 2 years before.
I had unfortunately gained back 153 lbs, but I was sure that fulfilling my dreams with a husband would make all the difference in my habits.
My husband was sold on my speech that I wanted to get healthy and he took it on as a personal challenge to help me.
After getting up at 6:20 a.m., completing a 6 hr day at School to learn French, and cooking dinner, I took a nap yesterday. My husband nagged me from the time I got up until midnight to go and workout in our basement. Although I didn't feel like it, we ended up doing a strength training and the elliptical.
As we did the workout, my husband recalled the years we have spent on this health journey. We talked about the muscle tone and fat loss now and all the exercise we have done in 2 years and 10 months. Also in the conversation was my difficulty lately with sticking to the low Nutrition plan with long days and hard work at School, then home.
I am truly blessed to have such a supportive person in my life to make this journey. I truly needed to hear the lovely comments my husband said yesterday about my progress lately and what a success our journey together has been.
My weight loss totals 109.8 lbs currently and I am down 3.8 lbs since August 28th. I am very happy with the numbers since the last monthly weigh in because I am reaching lower numbers despite going back to School full time again.
I have had moments of muscle pain, moments of emotional pain, pride, joy, sadness, hunger, doubt, etc. I don't regret any moment because I am living a healthy lifestyle and I have a support that never existed before without payments to a pyschologist, gym or weight loss center.
I have a lot of hope that I will carry out the healthy lifestyle for the remainder of my time on the planet. I take one day at a time and try to make the right choices. Cheers!
