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.
