My Husband Rocks~Friday

As you know from a month ago, I have been starting out on my weight loss, that can just really be tough.  I have stayed disciplined, and I am encouraged by the results.  I know that the weight will come off if I stick to it, but it can be difficult.

My weight has been an issue for many years, only in the last year have I felt that it was changing.  I have a husband with NEW eyes, and I absolutely LOVE it. Does this mean I am going to let myself go? No! Actually, the complete opposite. Knowing that Josh accepts me JUST the way I am--FOR REAL--means that I can't wait to look the best I can.  For many years, I knew that Josh was lying when he said that he was "fine" with my weight. (because sometimes it would slip out how he wasn't happy) I could tell how distant he was, too!  Now when he says it...I really do believe him.  He doesn't want me to be TOO skinny, either!

He is free with compliments, and I am thrilled to have such a great supporter. Josh, this last month, has given me so much encouragement. He knows I can do this, but for me...not necessarily do I feel he is pushing me for HIM.  He LOVES how I look, and I am happy.  Many years I have felt that I had other cheerleaders, and I can honestly say that I believe Josh has now become one of my biggest fans. (I cannot be any more thrilled!)

Only a few more months and I think I will be at my goal, but I am more thrilled that I have a husband who doesn't just love me for my looks.  A husband who cheers me on, when I am down!

Thanks, Babe, for the glimpses I get of WHO you have become. I LOVE YOU!!!
You rock more EVERY day.
