Isn't he amazing...

My wonderful husband, Justin, is well, so wonderful! At first I was going to title this entry “has nothing to do with weight” but then I decided that really it does. You see my wonderful husband left me a note in the garage yesterday so I would see it when I got home. He attached some cute frog stickers with it! It is that kind of encouragement that helps me continue on with this life long journey of loosing and eventually maintaining my weight. He is constantly filling my “love tank” ; ) (for those of you who haven’t read the “Five Love Languages” you should really invest, even if you aren’t married it is a great lesson to learn).

So today I am wearing not only an XL scrub top, but XL scrub pants! When I started out on this journey I was wearing a 3X top and 3X pants, and I think I was pushing on 4X. I think I am currently in the transition stage between 2X and XL because I fit more comfortably in the 2X, but more happily in the XL! If that even makes sense.

It is amazing how God will turn an opportunity to help a friend into an opportunity to help you. Yesterday my friend and I decided that at 8:15 we would work out. Now she lives in Moore, OK and I live in Edmond, OK so we weren’t going to meet up, but rather keep each other accountable for the work out. My first thought was that it would be easy because it is around that time that Justin and I usually do DDR anyway, so no problemo right? WRONG! Justin was super tired and so he decided to take a nap for a little bit, which left me on my own for working out. If I hadn’t made that arrangement with my friend I wouldn’t have danced at all.

Yay, I made your blog! As we were walking around our neighborhood last night, I was telling Steve what an encouragement you were to me yesterday. I was having a blah day, and you encouraged me, yet held me accountable to not sit in my pile of self-pity. My exact words to Steve were, "she was just a really good friend today" :o) I'm looking forward to our next workout appointment!
