    Raquel... you can have my kids anytime you want them! LOL!!![/QUOTE]

    Just my luck you are not local ::::::::: wiping brow ::::::::::::::: hehe

    Goth used a term called Koolaide mom and said it means it's the mom that WANTS the kids in the neighborhood at their house. I had never heard it referred to like that ... I just use to think it was the crazy mom, anyway I guess that's me to an extint.
    But ... today I've had 3 plus my 2 - and they all are very well behaved - but dang the energy. We've had races, horseshoes, the whole swing set thing, and this means, I'm running from one end of it to the other, push me, push me higher, push us, pick me up. etc. then it was time for bubbles, then hokey pokey, and then and then and then ... I kept thinking ... "Any time now you can come get your youngin' for lunch of something" LOL

    Finally it's naptime, everyone went to their designated homes and my boys are conked out - thank goodness for Phen, I'm still energized, woohoo!

    I thought this might be the case...
    He'll just have to get over it, but I'll try and be sympathetic...

    Good luck with that. Last time I was on Phen, I had lost 40 lbs and my exhusband said
    he couldnt see where I had lost it. Soon after, I lost 200lbs. I divorced him.

    Smile Wow!

    I am going to start by congratulating you on you success. You have lost an amazing 34 lbs and have dropped a number of sizes (which means you have dropped a number of inches, too, I'm sure). That is incredible and you should be very proud of yourself. I have also lost 34 lbs and am patiently (sorta) waiting to drop my first size.

    As for your hubby, I agree with the others. He is probably a bit insecure. I would assume he is proud of your effort, but must not show that. My guess is that he loves you very much, but is having difficulty showing that with regard to your weight because your confidence is going to show to others too and that may concern him and so follows the comments that he is making. I am not going to act like I know how your relationship is so don't think that I am, but... Maybe a special night for the two of you would be good. Spend a little more $ and buy a new dress, go to a nice restaurant, maybe some lingerie. I don't know just an idea.

    Bottom line, don't worry too much about his negative comments. Just make sure he knows how you feel... about him, about yourself, and about the comments he is making.

    Again, congratulations on your progress.
    Keep on Keepin' on!

    You know - I'm proud of you for saying something to him. You are feeling good about your accomplishments and it's showing ... maybe he is feeling left behind a bit and doesn't know how to accurately reflect that. Hmmmmm - I'm only guessing. If you are really into "you" these days "new way of eating, new clothes" make sure you are giving him some quality time too - maybe that will help. ::: crossing fingers for you :::

    of course you could just tell him to s u c k it up. LOL

    Default YAY! (this is kinda long)

    Welp, I went shopping yesterday for some work pants...
    Guess what??!!
    I am wearing a pair of pants that are size 20!!!!
    HOLY CRAP! Can you believe it?
    I was in a 26 when I started....
    I feel fabulous...
    My husband kinda wigged out on me...
    The shirt I have on, which looks great on me I might add, he hated it. He said it looked like s h i t on me before I even tried it on...
    I bought another pair of pants that he claims makes me look like I have camel toe (sorry for being indelicate). But they totally don't! I'm not the type of gal to buy clothes that don't fit.... If I did have camel toe, I would know it (cause you can totally feel it, I'm sure) and I would not have purchased those pants. He got mad b/c I told him I was going to buy some work pants and I ended up buying 2 pair of pants, 2 shirts, 2 cardigans, and a pair of flip flops, but I got it all for under $50. So what's the big freaking deal? He got pissy over the flip flops, but for heaven's sake, I got them at Goodwill for $1....
    I don't know what his prob was last night, but he just blew up...
    I was feeling fantastic about my purchases b/c I got them for cheap, they look nice and one pair of the pants happens to be 3 sizes smaller than where I started.
    His tantrum just messed up my whole night. I started crying b/c of the way he delivered the messages about not liking my clothes. I felt insecure and vulnerable. Then he had the nerve to ask me if it was "about that time"! I said, "No, A s s hole, is it about that time for you??? You're the one having a fit!" I know its not about the money, b/c he's dropped a load on his truck in the past week, and if I can't spend $50 on some clothes that fit correctly, then he can kiss it! I don't know what his problem is. He flipped out about the flip flops b/c I just got a pair from Hot Topic a couple of weeks ago (which were on sale for $5 - big woop...). I wore them the other day and they rubbed the skin off the top of my foot... So he was like, "So we just wasted that $5 then???" Jeez, Pal, get over it.
