"My wife with the pretty jowls"
Friday, June 04, 2010
My husband: "Ready for dinner, my pretty-jowled wife?" he actually meant to compliment me on my re-emerging jaw-line, but had a bit of a word mix-up!
It is kind of nice to look in the mirror and see "my" face coming back, though! I've got a hint of a jaw-line and my cheek bones are starting to show, now that I'm past the 25% mark on my weight loss.
He also compliments me often on my new agility and strength, which I have to confess I find really flattering, as I so don't think of myself as strong or flexible. When I was putting weight on, he never once made me feel bad about it, he asked me if I was unhappy with him and, when I told him I wasn't, that was it! Subject over. And now that I'm making healthy changes, he helps when he can, has learned how to cook new, healthier dishes, and has actually dropped 30+ pounds himself, simply because of our new eating style (so he's an associate Spark member, I guess, at least in terms of benefits).
Ah, I'm rambling today--but I thought the "pretty jowls" comment was pretty funny! I mean, I don't think I've ever heard a positive adjective attached to the word jowls...
I hope everyone has a great weekend!
