Some of you may remember way back when I was wondering how long it would take for my husband to comment on my weight loss. I have been silently plugging along, not mentioning "diet" or "weight" but just talking about eating right and getting healthy. As the pounds dropped off and the sizes went down, I too started to wonder when he would notice. But I was determined to get an UNSOLICITED comment.
Well it has finally happened. This morning after a 30 minute ride on my bike, he said to me, "are you losing weight?" I replied, "Yes. Do you see a difference?" and he said "yes, I see a difference." I said, "Fifty pounds so far." Husband's jaw dropped. "WHAT?????" I repeated, "fifty pounds." He looked pretty stunned and said, "That's amazing!"
There you have it! He noticed.
As a side note, one of the reasons I truly value the online community (blogging and message boards) is because this is where I get pretty much all of my support and encouragement. I have no family around but Husband and the kids, and I am kind of isolated at the moment from friends. I need to start making an effort to reconnect in person with friends. Being morbidly obese sucked the life out of me and I withdrew a lot socially. I hope to change that over the next few months.
