Just wanted a take a moment of thanks for my husband. I have not actually told him that I am trying to lose weight, as I want to lose 15lbs before I actually say those words to him to prove that I can do this. Obviously, living with me he has noticed that I have made some drastic changes, especially in regards to what I am eating.
First & foremost, I am thankful that I have ALWAYS felt loved by him no matter how much weight I had gained. He always made me feel beautiful, no matter what the scale said.
Second, I am grateful for his support despite the fact that I have yet to open up to him about my goal. Like I said above, he has noticed quite a few changes & is supporting me unconditionally. For example, he lets me pick where we dine out so that I can select a place with healthier options. Also, one night he noticed that for my nightly snack, that I had pretzels & mustard. The next night, that is exactly what he brought me. Last night he made us a salad, in mine he put the 100 calorie cheese cubes that I had recently bought @ the store.
Third, I appreciate how respect he is of me & how he is quietly honoring my choices, until I tell him. Last but not least, I know that when I do officially tell him, I know he will say something like "I believe in you Jen & you can do anything you set your mind to. Just do it for you!"
My husband is my best friend. Lucky, lucky me!
