{30 thoughts} I love my husband!

I guess it should go without saying that I love my husband...but I want to shout it from the rooftops! He truly is the best husband for me.

He is my biggest supporter, confidant, friend, and is one of the only people who can really get me to stop, listen & think {the other is my Mom...more on her later}!!!

What I am most proud of is how he has come along on this journey with me. He's lost 40 pounds himself!! He will get up at 4:30 AM (yes, in the morning) to go to the gym before work. I can't even get up at 5:30 AM to go to barre3 and I L.O.V.E. barre3. We were both very overweight, unhappy with ourselves, and our marriage was down {but most certainly not out}!

Jason is my complete opposite and my better half. For those of you who are lucky enough to know him, he is a man of few words. But when he does have something to better listen. So, I did just that. Here's some questions I asked Jason while we were sitting around at home one evening.

Why do you like that I like barre3?
Because you are more happy than you've ever been since I've ever known you. When you have a bad day you go here and come out happy. And then you come home happy and I like that.

What changes or choices have you made that you are most proud of?
Just the overall choices of what I eat. Now when I go get lunch I rarely eat a burger and fries and instead I get a salad.

Our salads at Buffalo Wild Wings

What is one thing about me on this journey that has most surprised you that I've done?
Stick with it. Not that I thought you couldn't do it but you used to get so frustrated at everything and give up. You don't do that anymore.

Do you miss anything about our "old" lifestyle?
No. We're happier, healthier. No. What's there to miss. Do I miss fried food? No. I tried fried food a few weeks ago and it tasted terrible so now I don't miss it anymore.

Looking at the future - where do you think we are going?
Up. To the top of Mt St Helens next year - for a start.

Anything else to add?
At first he said no then 5 minutes later he said...
We just keep inspiring people. People at my work talk to me about making good choices or going to the gym.

I definitely started crying during some of his answers. I just love how much happier we are and I love how much happier he is with me. Not just my body {but he isn't complaining about that, that I assure you} but me as a person.

I love my husband. Yes I do!

Fingers crossed {to a wonderful next 50+ years}...
