Feeling Good

Tuesday, May 07, 2013

You know, this blog may very well have a little TMI, but I feel like I have to share it.

3 years ago, I met the man who is now my husband. emoticon At that time, I would have been around 168-175lbs. I felt rather good about who I was and where I was 'health' wise. Now obviously, being in the 'honeymoon' emoticon phase of our relationship, EVERYTHING was good, including sex. (Here comes TMI...)

We used to do it everywhere and all the time! Kitchen, bathroom, couch, you name it, it was done there (even in the day when the kids were up and playing outside!) emoticon

Since that time, my husband and I have both pounded up (IDK where that term came from... LOL!) I went up to 198lbs as of March 2012 and my husband from 190 to 230ish now. The biggest difference has to be that we no longer work out together, if ever.

In the last couple of years, we encountered really major family issues with extended family that led to major depression, stress and frustration for the both of us. Knowing fitness would be beneficial, neither of us had the 'energy' to get up and do it. In this time, our sex life also decreased drastically because of the stress and lack of energy, or so I thought...

Nearly a full 10lbs down now (WI is tomorrow) I felt pretty damn hawt! emoticon I feel like I'm fitting into my clothes better, my shorts from last summer are not staying up very well, guess I should wear a belt, and when I am walking, I feel like there is less jiggling! WARNING! TMI!... This morning, I initiated a session. emoticon I am NOT a morning sex kinda person. I'm not a morning person at all, though I felt like my old self again! I FELT like the momma he met 3 years ago! I felt... almost sexy. emoticon That is not a term I would use to describe myself. Crazy!

I am not where I WANT to be, but I obviously am right where I should be right now. This is how I should feel. This is how I want to feel and I know that as I push forward, slip ups and all, I will feel even more fantastic! emoticon and all that energy and positivity that will come with it is certain to encourage my husband to get back on the wagon.

I love him so much emoticon ! I know now that if I continue to workout, work hard and do the work myself, it is only going to bring out the best in me and in turn, him. This will bring our relationship emoticon to a whole new level. We will rock! I will do it for myself, him, our family and our relationship. We... are a power team!

    nah, not TMI at all, if anything inspiring lol. I hope I can get my hormones figured out enough to be the woman my husband had the beginning of our relationship too. Maybe one day. Sex is so important to marriage.

    way to go on your feeling sexy and confident!

    Great blog yet again! I think losing weight gives us much more confidence and for those "special" moments. Sounds like you have a solid marriage. Good for you! emoticon
