Big Love

Lisa asked 'How has losing weight changed your relationship with your husband? How has it changed with yourself?'

Jeremy told me once that after looking at pictures of when I was at my biggest that he never really saw me as a 'fat girl', he has always thought I was beautiful. He went on to add that he was very proud of me for losing all that weight. I can honestly say that I don't believe Jeremy ever felt any differently about me when i was bigger. He has always loved me just as I am..skinny, fat, young, old, wrinkled..it doesn't seem to matter to him. Any differences in our marriage usually came from me and how I felt about myself.

For instances, when Jeremy tells me that I am beautiful..which he has always done..I am more open to accepting that compliment now then when I was heavier. I am much more comfortable with him seeing me naked. There was a time when I use to change in our closet just to avoid him seeing me undressed...no lie.

Truth of it is, Jeremy loves me no matter what...just like I love him (he's gained and lost weight through out our marriage as well). But, for us, daily life is just...better...as skinny people. We laugh more. We go out and do more. We love more...wink, wink. He is most happy when I am happy...and I am much happier now that I've lost weight.

  1. I can totally relate to your post. I started dating my current boyfriend and then I gained a lot of weight.. and now I'm back thinner than I ever was my entire life. I asked him if he felt any differently and he said he just wants to see ME happy.

    I think if we are in a happy place, our relationship is happy and healthy :)

    Love your blog!! You look gorgeous and those cupcakes look DELISH

  2. I love this post! I am so happy for great husbands! My husband and I have been together for just over 3 years. I have always been fat, but he has never seen me that way. And for this I am greatful. He thinks I am beautiful... even when I lose 5 lbs he'll hug me and be like gosh miss skinny and I laugh. but Truthfully he loves me just how I am. And when I lose this weight he will love me just the same. I am just glad to hear you reiterate that :)
    However I know that my confidence will change and that will make for some really fun times
