A Little Too Up Close and Personal I'm Afraid

Okay, Skip and I have decided that we both are going to lose some weight. I know I've said it before here , here, and once again here, but this time we really are doing it. Ha Ha, right! No, seriously, we must. It is a matter of life and death. I want to be around when my kids grow up and have their own kids. I want to live a full life, not feeling tired and unmotivated all the time. Okay, who am I kidding? Bottom line- I want to look Hot again for my hubby! There, I said it. It's out there. Lately, I have been feeling so insecure about myself. I have reached a point where I can no longer blame home schooling, stress, or age. I am the only one to blame. I have been so motivated lately reading Kelly's blog, and I want to do the same. Scroll through her recent archives and you WILL BE AMAZED. She lost 50lbs, and that is not all. God gets all the glory! I love that about her. She is doing Fit Friday, and all kinds of other helpful posts for those interested in getting in shape and losing weight.

In case you're wondering, my sweet husband has never said anything negative. Praise God he loves curves! He just knows that I am not feeling so great, and wants to help me by joining in on this endeavor. As much as he loves to cook rich foods for me, he promises to make low calorie dishes for the both of us. Please check in on me from time to time. I would love some encouragement. Also, my friend Laura is moving to town today!!! She wants to start working out with me. Yipee! Hopefully I will check in each Tuesday with results. Pray for me. It would mean so much.

That is so awesome! I am glad your hubby is doing this with you. I have to cook me and my hubby separate meals for breakfast and dinner. I am really interested in trying to eat healthy and I post tips and recipes on my health blog http://heavenhealth.blogspot.com/. If you find any helpful tips please share them! Keep us posted on your progress!!!!

Me again. Do you know who won the woman's conference scholarship? I've gone to the link and the home page and I can't find where they have posted the winning name. Thanks!

It's a constant battle, isn't it? Once we creep towards 40 (or in my case, surpass it exceedlingly...) it's like every single calorie sticks to your thighs.

So long, twinkies. Hello stairmaster!

I'm sure in your husband's eyes you're beautiful, but if losing a few pounds makes you feel better about yourself, then it's so worth it. Losing weight is sooo hard, but his being willing to start cooking low cal instead of the wonderful things he's always cooked for you is a good start.

I'd weigh 300 pounds if he'd been cooking for me all this time! It has to be hard to lose weight when you're married to an awesome chef, but I have faith in both of you.
