Valentines Day NSV from Hubby

Friday, February 15, 2013

Ok so I had a great non scale victory yesterday thanks to the hubby and me being brave.

I am finally starting to feel better about the way my body is and trying to accept it no matter what size I am so for Valentines day I told my hubby he could go down to Victoria Secrets and get me something pink and a baby doll style. I was so nervous about what he was going to get me and that it would not fit and I would look fat in it and he would not like it on me.

He got me this pink lace satin slip nightie and I was so nervous. I love my hubby so much and he has always found me sexy no matter what size I was so not only was I trying this for me but more for him.

I put it on and almost cried. It fit (almost a little too big) and I looked pretty great in it, well except for the chest area. My tatas have fallen and they can't get up (without lots of help) and it is a good thing I don't have a big complex about them. Hubby really really liked it too.

I still need to work on the self loathing inner dialog that takes place in my head because when i looked in the mirror and thought I looked good, but then I immediately went to saying yep, look good but........... if the thighs were thinner it would look better. I have to work on that, my hubby thinks I look beautiful and I should think that too.

Time to start loving myself.

The one I got was more of a Candy Cotton pink.

    Hot Momma. Looking sexy and feeling sexy, that is definitely a NSV.

    Awww...I bet you looked great in it! And lots of guys like ample thighs! My will never be skinny and that's OK, but I'd like to get ride of the fat on the inside of my knees! Truthfully, I don't think I look too bad naked in the mirror, and I'm way older than you. (Yes, things are saggy!) Tomorrow I'm shopping for a swimsuit or 2 for the upcoming cruise and because I only have my aqua aerobics one and it felt a little big the other day. Yay!

    I have a supportive husband too, which is nice. I'm the one who isn't nice to myself. Even when I lost all the weight the last time around I could still find areas I wanted to improve. Focus on all you've accomplished and celebrate the fact that you have such a supportive hubby! emoticon

    I actually told my BF I was giving up my self negative talk for Lent. I think that is something God would approve for anyone. I was inspired by Spark Shelli's Vlog.

    Funny that we expect more perfection from our bodies than they expect. Of course we think that's what they expect because they are visually bombarded with perfect bodies all day long. I'm still surprised when my husband tells me I'm sexy because I instantly think "What? Saggy boobs, stretch marks and jiggly bits? Are you blind?" Apparently putting on that sexy lingerie disguises all of that, lol. I'm sure you look more fantastic than YOU think. You are doing GREAT and one of these days you will see it, too.

    A lovely Valentines emoticon gift. DH did well with this sexy nightie. Slip style can be worn under clothes, not just a nightie.

I bet it looked great, felt wonderfully silky against your skin and gave a big confidence boost. emoticon

With age comes droopy parts (droopy eyelids, tatas and tushies) however just think how many things you can and have changed! emoticon emoticon

    Amazing that you let him pick one out and that you enjoyed it minus the tatas part. Keep up all the good work! And as a friend once told me to do, write on your mirror (or do sticky notes) of 4 things you love about yourself and look at that list anytime in the mirror and feeling icky. It really helped

    You are just so cute. My tatas (I haven't heard that word before. :)) have fallen as well.

Loved your blog.

    KUDOS!!! That is so great that you allowed him to go pick out an outfit for you. And I am so proud of you that your first thought was that you looked good. I know the whole negative self-loathing talk all too well. But little steps will get our mind set right. Way to go!
