What a gift!

Friday, April 03, 2009

I just had to take a minute to share what a gift my husband is. He has loved me through thick and thin (well, much more thick, really) and never, ever made me feel bad about myself for being overweight. In fact, he can make me feel beautiful even on the days when I feel I'm at my worst. In all my weight loss endeavors, he has always supported me and never judged or criticized me when I didn't do everything right, or even when I gave up. He takes walks with me anytime I ask him to help me get my exercise (and of course, he knows he needs the exercise too) and he regularly tells me what a great job I'm doing.

Tonight, he made me dinner--all healthy, and extremely delicious! Sauteed spinach with garlic, grilled asparagus, and my favorite AmyLu chicken sausages. Yummy!! And to top it all off, he agreed to start using Spark People also to try to lose some weight and get healthier. (He's about 30 pounds overweight and has a lot of heart disease in the men in his family). I hope I can be as supportive to him as he is to me!

I don't know what I ever did to deserve such a wonderful gift in my life. I guess it's just one more example of God's grace!

    I am so happy that you have such a wonderful husband and helpmate. I feel truly blessed that I am married to an equally wonderful man. I thank God every day for the blessings in my life; especially my dear husband. Keep up the great work and support for each other is key with weight loss. I love that the two of you are doing it together! Great job! emoticon

    Hi Sweetie! You are taking the words from my own month too. My hubby is the same as yours, very supportive and LOVES to pamper me with whatever I need to be successful! Like the shoes he bought me, the endless meals he has made, getting up early to make sure I am doing my exercises. He is the best cheerleader on my team! Sigh...he is a keeper, like yours!
