Happy Wednesday! Today is an extra-special happy Wednesday for me. If you read my homeschool blog, you may already know why:
It’s my husband’s and my 20th wedding anniversary!
I can’t believe it’s been 20 years since we said, “I do.” That makes me feel old. It also makes me feel like we’ve accomplished something pretty doggone special.
I’ve got a pretty special man. Despite the fact that I went from being a pretty tiny little 21-year-old to being morbidly obese at 220 pounds, he never, ever made me feel like he was ashamed of me, disappointed in me, or disgusted with me – none of those things that I felt about myself.
I felt like he must feel those things, but he never made me feel anything less than beautiful, cherished, and loved.
Since I’ve lost weight, he’s both told me and showed me that he likes me much better this way, but that doesn’t mean that he loved me any less when I was obese.
He is very proud of my weight-loss and finds the new me pretty darn attractive, but he also likes the weight-loss because we can enjoy a more active lifestyle together and he’s not worried about me putting my health at risk.
I like that, too.
It’s so nice to be celebrating this milestone anniversary at such a smaller, healthier, happier size. I’m sure y’all will understand that I’m too busy today enjoying some special time alone with my husband to bother worrying about a scale. I’ll update you next week on my weight-loss. Today, I’m just going to enjoy my husband.
Let me know how you did on the scale, though. I’ll be checking in to see.
Do or do not. There is no try.
