My Husband Loves Me


Lately I have been feeling a little lot down about my weight. Clearly not enough to do anything about it, but I think about it everyday. If you know me in real life, you have seen me get heavier. If you know me through blogging, you have seen selective/cropped pictures. I've never been huge, but I have been conscious of my weight my whole life. I go up and down and most days I don't care. Until I get to a point where I do. And I'm almost there. But this post is about something that my husband said to me last week. We were having a little fun during nap time, wink wink, and I said something about being uncomfortable with how I look. Mike shook his head.

"Sexy isn't about weight. It's about your attitude and who you are. And I promise you, you're sexy." Melt. Thanks Mike for loving me when I'm up and when I'm down.

That almost made me cry!

I don't know a woman alive who doesn't think about her weight daily. Either she is gleeful because she lost weight or she is bummed because she is struggling.

I've gained 20+ pounds since I got married and I just don't care. I can't starve myself and obsess like I used to. Now I just want to be healthy for my children.

You are beautiful no matter how much you weigh.

Aww your husband is awesome! I sure hope you believe him!

I always tell my husband, if I am beautiful in his eyes than thats all that matters....although I know that for me to believe I am beautiful deep down is a daily battle of the mind. I think women are cheated of the truth so often because the world often portrays beauty way different than the reality of what it is. I have to remind myself of that often:)
Hugs!
