Once I had lost around 120 pounds or so, when people found out how much I had lost, I often heard comments like, “Wow! You’ve lost an entire person!” This remark has never felt more appropriate to me than it does today…As of this morning, I have now lost 144.6 pounds, which is more than my husband, who comes in at 143.3 pounds, weighs!
When I put it into this perspective, before I started losing weight, it was like I had my husband taking a piggyback ride on my shoulders all day, every day! It’s no wonder I was tired all the time and didn’t have much energy! Although I love my husband dearly, I’m not altogether sure that’s what the vow, “to have and to hold” was really talking about!
Only 80.4 pounds left until I reach my goal…hmmm, that’s about the equivalent of one of my kids plus my dog’s weights!
