Awww, how sweet! When I started losing a little of my boobs, I was nervous for a minute, but I forgot how my husband is about me.. lol He is always like "oooh, I love this or that" haha It's just sweet. I mentioned how my boobs are shrinking and he said "I think you look sexy, nice work baby." I was like "I wasn't sexy before??" (picking on him) he said "you could be 4 times as big as you are right now and I would love every piece of you. I love YOU not how you look, crazy woman." Yeah.. I almost cried! LOL I KNEW that, but.. it was nice to hear.
My mom is always saying how proud she is of me, too.. it's amazing.
WOOHOOO Piichii! My DH is a little sad about me losing my breasts, too, but he also knows I'm happy. He's thrilled he can cup my buttcheeks - one per hand now.. when I used to have three or four handfuls there. Ha!
You are worth having a healthy body!
This is a lifestyle change to be healthy, not a diet and not a sprint to get there.. one day at a time, one pound at a time.. as long as it takes, starting again as often as possible.
Yesterday my mom said I looked beautiful on my way to work and smiled. She said she could tell I have lost some weight already and she was proud of me.
It's rare for my mom to say these kinds of things. She usually goes on and on about how she is in pain or needs to see a doctor for medications. (She is bipolar and has many addictions. Let's leave it at that.)
When my sister was down last week she told me that I looked beautiful. She could tell I had lost weight and I needed to keep it up. She was smiling so big when she said this.
I am trying not to cry while I tell you guys.
Compliment to myself yesterday: I put on a size 42 DDD bra over my clothes and could pinch the fabric about 2 inches in the front where the cup is. I said to myself.. see you have lost weight and showed my husband.
He seemed like he would pout cause I lost some of the 'pillows' but he could tell I was happy and said that he doesn't care if I get to an A cup!
Well, it's not exactly a comment about my progress, but about my appearance.
Mark was sharing about a concert he attended and said he was sitting between a big guy like (a tall broad shouldered - rotund man at our table) and a lady who was - pointing at me, he hesitated and then said :"average." I wanted to laugh because I was sure the word he wanted to say was "large" but didn't. However, the man he was talking with instantly piped in with "and beautiful!" Mark didn't even hesitate and said, "She knows she's beautiful." (He turned a little pink as he said it.)
Later when someone took our picture, I mentioned I looked so fat in the picture and Mark said, I didn't and that I "looked perfect" to him.
After telling my neighbor this, she told me there is nothing wrong with the way I look. (Guess 35 lbs into obese is perfect to some....but it still made me feel good.)
For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love, and of self-control. II Timothy 1:7
Actually, a few days ago I saw one of the football moms (my son played football last year) and I haven't seen her in a few months.. she said "OMG look at you! You look amazing! Check out that beautiful slim face and omg your waist... wow!!! What are you doing!?" and I Spread the Spark of course :)
Then, at my husbands work.. a lady I absolutely adore, but hadn't seen her since last year sometime.. saw me and said "My goodness, babe.. you look amazing and so much happier. I'm so proud of you!" And she hugged me and could reach all the way around me.. and SHE started crying :D AMAZING feeling!
