My husband, my inspiration

This past May, I was specifically told by my husband that I was not allowed to blog about him losing weight. He said he needed to do it first. Needed to accomplish his own goals before I, well, put it out there. I respected that. And now that he has reached his goal, I have the “green” light.

I blogged a couple of months ago about the Tweightloss Challenge that I began on Twitter. My husband was my inspiration. I wanted to lose the baby weight after the birth of my 4th son. I knew I needed some encouragement from my Twitter friends (since I’m “on” ALL day, every day!). And, I am happy to say, as of today… I’m 5 pounds from my goal!

I found 2 photos last night. One was taken in October 2004. One was taken in August 2008. Both have my husband and my brother, Adam, in them. The babies in the photos? The 2004 photo is William and my nephew, Jake. The 2008 photo is Henry and my nephew, Dylan. I emailed the photos to my husband with the caption… “Hard work goes a long way…” And, my God, honey… you worked so very hard.

2004 – Upon seeing this again, my husband asked me, “Who’s the fat, ugly woman with your brother?”

2008 – Honey, who’s the ripped hunk with my brother?

  1. Wow, he looks awesome! Totally hottie:) I should blog about my hubbie, he lost 45 pounds, and I’ve never talked about it on my blog. I’m not very nice, huh? ha.

  2. Congrats to both of you!!! So proud! Matty doesn’t look like “Fat Guy in a Little Coat!”

  3. Congrats on being so close to your goal!!! And your husband truly is an ispiration!! A healthy lifestyle does so much for your mind and body. Way to go you guys!

  4. I have watched Matt’s transformation with my own eyes… and I am in awe of his self-discipline… especially because he doesn’t obsess about food, talk about food, judge other people’s food intake, avoid eating with others… he just goes about his day, eating nutritiously and exercising smartly.

    Bravo, Matt. You are a great inspiration to your 4 little boys, too. That is the greatest gift of all.

  5. SO true. I spent this morning out on town, taking photos with my youngest son. It was great. Just him and me, doing something that he loves. Very special that.

  6. Oh, wow!!! Congrats to Matt!!! That is awesome! 🙂

    Congrats to you too, Audrey! You are doing great! Only 5 lbs away from your goal!? You totally rock, girlfriend! 😉 XOXO
