Sometimes I really love that man

You all know how I've been struggling with the scale since Christmas.  I've been gaining/losing the same 5 pounds for 2 months now.  Today was yet another disappointing scale attempt.  I sent Hubs a text message explaining how frustrated I am.  He sends me the following message:

I'm so sorry babe.  I don't know if I trust our scale.  Your clothes are loose and baggy on you to where you can't even hold them up anymore.  There is no way in hell you aren't losing weight.  I know that looking at the numbers means alot, but at the same time all I have watched is my wife melt away.  I am so proud of the weight loss that you have already done and I know if you stay with it you will reach your goal.  You look absolutely awesome right now, and to be honest I am envious.  I'm not just saying this to make you happy.....I really mean it.  I know it's hard, but just keep up the good work and remain as dedicated as you have been.  I love you.

Even though he can be a self proclaimed asshole, he can also be sweet and amazing too.  Love that man! 

Because of his words, I'm not dwelling on that stupid number on the scale.  My measurements are dwindling fast, my stamina is increasing during my workouts, and my body feels so much better by the food I'm fueling it with.

Wow! What a great man!

Is it maybe time for a new scale? sometimes they just wear out - it is great that you are able to focus on the other changes you are seeing! Keep up the good work!

What a wonderful wonderful way to start your weekend! Your husband said the right thing at the right time and I wish there were more out there like him! Congrats on one of the good ones. :)But I bet he is the way he is because of what a wonderful inspirational woman, mom and wife that you are!

Hubs gets a couple'a gold stars!!! Just keep doing what you're doing--and dont doubt yourself or your progress. Its working!!! I have to give myself the same pep-talk when the old self-sabotage bit starts up--because for me thats what it is! You're doing great :-D

This is one sweet man - you've got a good one, there. Smart, too. He's right of course - remember the panties post? No way you are gaining and losing the same 5 pounds and needing smaller undies at the same time! The truth is in the underwear!!

Shrinking Mommy said...

that's good of your hubby! I know what you mean about scale not moving! Mine is the same. Why not measure yourself and see how that goes. I am to the point in my weight loss that the scale wont more much (as much as I like). I did, however, measure last month and just did it and i lost 3.75 in. (Let me say, I wish I wouldhave done it when I first started...I would have been amazed!) Good luck and don't let it get you down!

what a great post chick. If I was a betting man, and I am, I would say you are going to hit a stretch in the not to distant future where you just shed 10-15 pounds just blam blam blam. I look forward to that day for you!!

Your hubs gets a thumbs up on that!!!

And hey, losing fat and gaining muscle can mean that your scale won't reflect the positive changes you are making - always remember that!
