DH's New Groove

Tuesday, December 20, 2016

I am speechless. emoticon

I just talked with DH and I'm so happy, I had to write this post! emoticon I have to let my excitement and glee out somewhere and it is too late to call my BFF!

We talked about so many things, I don't know where to start! I'm so giddy! He wants to start eating right, he's talking about getting an eating plan together with me so that when I get off this program and transition into normal eating, the family will be eating right already, so I can eat what they are eating, and not have to go get totally different emoticon groceries for me. emoticon He wants to start taking salads for lunch to work. emoticon

emoticon He wants to start working out, everyday after work on the treadmill for at least 30 minutes. My DH. Wants to start working out again. And eating right.

Why?

Because he wants to have the energy to keep up with me. emoticon

I've been talking about my hiking training and goals and setting dates and plans, and he's realized he needs to be working out and eating right too, or he's not going to be able to do those things with me. But not only that, he's realized he feels like crap and wants to have that energy again.

And it didn't stop there. emoticon

He's talking about saving emoticon money, finally getting some things taken care of that really need it, and... getting me my emoticon service dog this year! What! I was dancing in my chair while he talked (and those of you who know how much pain I'm in know what a big deal that is!)

And he's serious. I can tell by how well thought out his plans were and how he was talking, he really means it.

He's even considering giving up sugar! emoticon

I told him I will keep fresh tea always in the fridge if he will just give up sodas. He agreed!

I think he's come to the point that I was at over 12 weeks ago. So many changes I wanted to make but most of them I could not make without his help and cooperation. So I changed what I could with getting on this program and losing the weight and getting in shape (still working on it, but I'm getting there!). But now? Now that he's on board? Oh the things we can accomplish!

This is the start of something beautiful, I just know it! I was already excited for the new year and all the possibilities it brings and all the plans I'm making and goals I'm setting. Now? Now I am so hopeful!

There was more, but I won't go into it. I am so hopeful right now. There is no way I could sleep, I am so overwhelmed with joy! Every time I've brought up the service dog it's been, we'll it's a great idea, but not now. Now to be putting a plan in place to actually get the dog?!

I've been talking a lot about my goals and plans for the new year with him. I have high hopes for myself; losing the weight, Flylady, training the dog, homeschooling, hiking... all those things I've been talking about. And now? Now so many more things are now possible! I've been holding myself back in several areas because of this or that and now that he is on board too? OMG!

Okay, had to get that out. I'm so excited still! About everything! Especially DH getting in shape and me getting a dog and... well, all of it! LOL. But I do have to go to bed at a decent hour, so I'm off to take a shower and relax and try to get some rest! Hope you have a beautiful night my friends! emoticon

    Wow... that is great news. I would love to get my DH on board.. if nothing else, just so we could have something we do together. Make sure he does baby steps. We don't want to freak him out the first week... perhaps giving up the soda for at least a week before anything else. Good luck

    This is great news for you and your family. When couples do it together, it's a little bit easier because you can support one another. Good luck to you guys!

    'a cop on a horse looked down at little Moana on her bike and said, "did santa claus give you that?" she looked up at him and smiled, "yip." "well then," said the cop, "tell santa claus to put a reflector light on it next year." and handed her a ticket.. lil Moana looked up at him and said, "nice horse you got there, so did santa claus get you that too?" the cop laughed n replied, "he sure did." "well then," said lil Moana with a cheeky grin, "next year tell santa claus the dick goes under the horse, not on top!"
