This morning, my husband asked me how far I have to go before I will call it good. I said that I really don't know. He is a doctor, so of course he asked me how much I have to lose to be at a healthy BMI. At 5'5" I can weigh at most 150 pounds. That is 28 pounds away. My wonderful husband then told me, "Well please don't go below that then. I have seen you super skinny and overweight. Don't go back to super skinny."
"Well fine," I'm thinking, "if you twist my arm!"
We have been married for almost 21 years, and have known each other since junior high school. He really has seen me all over the map. How lucky am I that he doesn't think I was at my prettiest when I was 17 and weighed 102 lbs!
I really am a lucky girl. I have learned that my husband loves me no matter what -- even obese and depressed. And today I learned that his idea of a perfect me is far better than my unobtainable idea of perfection. I think I will borrow his glasses and start looking at myself more the way he does. Apparently, he likes what he sees!
