loving the support!!!

My DH is doing so great! He is down 33 lbs and running 5 km at least 5 times a week.

Best of all, he is helping to keep me going!

Yesterday his aunt called to invite us to her house for Christmas dinner. She asked him if I could bring a dessert, and he told her that I would bring some fruit (I love that he made this healthy choice on his own) and then he asked if I could also bring a side dish, since we are both trying to eat low fat foods, and he knows that I make a nice CORE cauliflower dish that tastes like twice baked potatoes. When he told me all this later, I was so proud him for suggesting these things. He has totally changed his frame of mind. It used to be that I couldn't bring a dessert somewhere unless it was covered in chocolate so that he would eat it - now he wants FRUIT!!! I love it.

We really do NEED support in this journey. I used to think I could do it all on my own, but failed every time. This time around, I'm having more success than ever before and he is on board - I KNOW that the 2 are completely connected.
