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?
