Before Pictures

Saturday, April 13, 2013

I had my husband take some before pictures for me yesterday. I was expecting to see someone completely out of shape, but what I saw in my pictures was bad, really bad. I told my husband to pretend like he hadn't seen them and then had the realization that he has to look at that EVERY day. Cue waterworks. I had a total melt down. He gave me a hug and told me that he thought I was beautiful, but man was that a wake up call. I am very grateful to have a wonderful husband that is supportive and treats me so well. At some point when I have lost all of my weight, I will look at those pictures and be grateful that I am not there any more. For now, I will use them as motivation. Wish me luck all, because I am going to need it. emoticon

    I too have a supportive husband. He celebrates every pound I lose with me. I know he is always in my corner. It's a great feeling.

You will find you can do anything with a supportive, loving husband backing you up. Good luck on your spark journey!
