Ive been married 15 years. And Im here to tell you, those 15 years have been:
Phew. When I think of my life with Alpha Hubby these past years, I can honestly say that there is a place a couple can live that makes ordinary marriage pale in comparison. It is beyond my wildest dreams and imaginings. Most hope for, but few discover, this place. I am a blessed woman.
Alpha Hubby is a haven for me. He offered sanctuary 15 years ago and I took it. Ive never looked back, not one time. In his love, I am not only complete, I am known and understood in a way no one else on earth has accomplished. He is a total man and makes no apologies that he wants to take care of and protect me and our family. Very old fashioned. And Im here to tell you phew baby!
One reason I am sticking to this journey and NOT giving up is Alpha Hubby. He is a man beyond what I ever dreamed of meeting and loving. Hes been an amazing support in any endeavor Ive tackled and believes in me so strongly, I sometimes think he is blinded by bias.
I am winning this battle and when I get on the other side, look out! Every meal I eat that is good for me healthy, wholesome and low calorie it is not only for me, it is for him. I am learning to eat to live, not live to eat. This is harder than youd think my family had celebrations around food. It is OK to celebrate and still keep your eyes on the end goal.
Every time I break a sweat (and I HATE to sweat), I do it for him. I have to go get into the fountain right now. I have leg exercises to do. That water whipped my bootie this past week. It provides far more resistance than I ever dreamed. Imagine when I can swim laps whoo hoo!! I cant wait until I look smokin in my bathing suit really. And I am not going to cover up and say the politically correct things people are supposed to say when they give their reasons for losing weight. I am losing weight to make hubby proud of how I look, even if he is the only one who sees me. In a sense, I am doing it for me cause the benefits are outstanding!
And yes, I know that I have to be doing this for ME in order for it to really work. But when I do it for him, I am doing it for me, too. We are one and by golly, half of us needs to look a little less bulky!
