I have the world's best spouse

Saturday, September 27, 2008

I've lost 24 pounds! Good news but its around this point in the past that people begin to notice the changes in my appearance - and I start to fall apart. It's pressure to keep going and I don't do well under pressure. That was then. Now I have my SP friends and team mates to cheer me on and encourage me when things become difficult. I'm braver and more sure of staying the course.

And I've told my beloved what I just wrote several times. He's been cheering me on and checking up with me on how I'm doing. I share everything with him. My weight, my goof-ups, my triumphs and my struggles. He helps me take my measurements. He knows everything.

Well, today has been a hard day. I haven't slept well the past few days so I'm bordering on exhaustion. Almost too tired to eat. (I did eat and not carefully, but I've logged everything and I'm not too far over.) Anyway, I came back from a shopping trip to find 3 balloons hanging over my chair. He wanted to "cheer me on" and bought them as a sign of his support.

He is so good to me in so many ways. I've read some of the comments and threads written by women whose spouses are not supportive and my heart aches for them. Their journey is so much harder than mine simply because their spouse doesn't cheer them on. I wish every woman could be as blessed as I am.

    I know both you and your spouse, and you're right. You have the world's best spouse. But you know what? So does he! emoticon

    You are so right. My last endeavor - I got to 24 -25 pound mark fairly easy but then I hit a plato and then started going the wrong way! You are so lucky to have a huband that you can share your weight and measurements with. There is no way I can do that with mine- In an argument, he would use them against me. It's hard keeping all of this to yourself. I am going to love to watch your progress! emoticon

    You are so right. We are lucky to have great husbands. I , too, feel so badly for so many "broken" women.......getting healthy is hard enough...but to do it alone....is almost impossible.....As far as what you wrote here......try to just keep teling yourself that you are going to stay on this path forever. There is no "end" to our journey......we are like alcoholics......we will have to stay clean forever. Now that doesn't mean we might not fall once in a while....but we will get back up...dust ourselves off and keep on.....Have a great day, PHOEBEJANE...and give your dh a hug for me too......
