Something that made me smile ! ! !

Cross posted from my blog.

A bit of back story.

When John and I met, I was at my heaviest between 265-270. That meant I weighed more than 100 pounds more than he did, and he didn't care. He loved me regardless of my pant size, or what the scale read. I was never one to hide my weight from him even when we were just dating. I wasn't happy at that weight, but I was happy that he loved me for me.

Today, I now weigh about 30lbs less than he does. When he deployed mid-March, I still weighed 100lbs more than he did. He worked out, strength training mainly, and bulked up a bit. I dropped a bunch of weight, and it's like a new found adventure for us. For the first time in my entire life, my husband can carry me. He did it when he first came home, but I made him put me down really quickly. He can hoist my "tiny hiney" (his words) up in his arms, and carry me around the house.

I'll admit, I was still scared of 'hurting' him. But, not anymore ! ! !

I, by no means, have a perfect body, and I have my flaws, but for me this picture is priceless even with the little bulge of my thigh ! ! !

AWESOME, Tiff! You guys remind me of my and my husband. We've been married 21 years, and it only gets better each day! We are very blessed to have found a partner who loves us for the person we are, and they are lucky to have found such great wifes too!

You truly are my inspiration! Your story is the best, and I know you've worked hard to make this a true success!

WAY TO GO!

Theresa

I am so happy for you! I have been reading your posts and you are truly inspiring to me. I am in the first steps of the VSG surgery process and my husband is still skeptical about it. He just smiled when I showed him your pics. He hasn't been able to hold me for over a decade... at least I haven't let him try. I am so excited about finally making this decision and can't wait to start my new life. God bless you for being such a blessing to us that are about to start our journey. Thanks for making me smile! :-)

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!
