I really do not know what I would do without my husband. He is able to put so many things into perspective for me it's crazy.
He gently let me in on the fact that although he is 100% behind my weight loss goal, that I may be neglecting other parts of my life.
I took a while to think it over, and I realize that I have been. I am so focused on losing weight that I have let other parts of my life slip, and that just isn't healthy either.
I find myself thinking about food a larger part of the day than I should, and I need to make a conscious effort not to. I want to get to a place when I don't think about food, that I think about other important things and I just eat for energy.
It's a huge hill to climb, but it is going to be a big part of getting healthy.


  1. It is a very easy thing to fall into. Thinking about calories, food, how much, how little, the water, the fiber, the sodium.... It can be a little addictive. Hope you find some balance :) Keep up the good work!

  2. Lucky for you I am a fan of yours.. I have so much to add....

  3. I feel ya on this one - you're lucky to have such a wonderful husband! I'm a new follower - randomly stumbled upon your blog and I'm glad I did! I think you and I have quite a bit in common. I currently weigh 323 and started a weight loss blog. I hope you can come check it out some time. Happy weekend!

  4. I understand it is a huge hill to climb, but if we take it one step at a time before we know it we'll be at the top! And isn't it all balance, we have to balance our weight loss with our lives and that is not an easy task. Hang in there!!!
