fun night out.

oh, I ate maintenance calories tonight but it was worth it.
I went to the gym and did my workout and burned 600 calories.
Then I hurried home and got ready for a date with my husband.
I took him to see true grit because I loved it so much and knew he would too.
And he did.
I got to get all dressed up to look hot for my husband.
It felt great.
For years I dressed in frumpy clothes and secretly wondered if people were puzzled that my big, handsome husband had ended up with me, a frumpy..morbidly obese woman

tonight I dressed in a purple form fitting dress.
My husband said I looked good. (o;
I earned every single calorie I ate tonight and while I won't be losing weight tonight, I won't be gaining any either.
It feels good to have earned my calories and it feels good to have earned my body.
Everything about tonight felt good.
It is worth it to lose the weight.
It gives you confidence in yourself, and tonight...
instead of worrying about what other people thought.
I was confident that I looked nice.
Tomorrow it's back to weight loss portions.
Have a great night guys.
Chris out.

Girlfriend, I have thought that soooooooooooooo many times in the last couple of years. My husband has gained about 30 pounds in 20+ years of marriage and me? about 120. He is cute and still has his boyish grin but I look like his "big sister".

I look forward to being able to dress nice for him again! I look forward to not feeling like I might be embarrassing my kids even though they are too sweet to admit it if I am.

Applause! Applause! You remind me what I'm fighting for - getting myself back!

Love this post. You always manage to address so many things (feelings) with so few words. Most importantly, that feeling of how great it is to reclaim yourself. Now where are the pics? You know we want to see the dress...
