I’ve thought about this off and on the last year. My husband loved me at 300 plus pounds. That’s the only size I had ever been. He loved my curves and all. He loves me no matter what size. He’s had me at size 30-32 all the way down to size 8. I have so many beautiful notes from him telling me that “I am the most beautiful woman in the world.” from before I lost weight. BUT I do exercise every night after the kids are in bed and this takes away from our time together. He never complains and supports me but I still think back to the days of big bowls of ice cream sitting on the couch watching TV together. Don’t get me wrong we still hang out but an hour less each night if I’m on the exercise equipment. I have recently started attending a boot camp and toning class at 5am each morning. He never complains about the alarm waking him up a hour and bit before he needs to get out of bed. (I suppose that since I get back with 30 min to make a nice warm breakfast for the family that it makes up for it. :-) )
I appreciate his support and loving me enough to tell me when my weight was too low and putting up with me when my weight started getting higher than I’d like. He is the greatest husband in the world and he is mine for all eternity. Thank you Dan for all of your support and putting up with my new crazy eating and exercise habits.
My kids never were embarrassed by my weight. They say I was just “mom” but they will admit that they like that I am smaller now. They do get frustrated sometimes when I want exercise during the day or create a new “healthified” recipe. I admit not all of my recipes turn out great on the first try. They find ways to spend time with me in our very small exercise room and have given up a bedroom so that we can have an exercise room in the house. They are great kids and they love me no matter what size I am. I am their mom and will be for all eternity.
