Taking It Easy

Do you ever stress out about details? My husband and I are quite opposite on this one, which is certainly a blessing! I am very detailed, he is very relaxed. Together, we strike a good balance. I am  very talkative and expressive, he is very quiet and composed. Again, it’s a nice balance…most of the time! lol!

Lately, I have found myself with a full plate of life and a clouded mind from lack of sleep, due to our sweet newborn. And let me tell ya, it’s not a good combo! I have been working at losing weight since having Matthew nine weeks ago, but since coming home, I’ve only lost three pounds! That’s right, I maintained again this week, so no loss.

I have had some minor health problems this past week, which threw a wrench in my weight loss efforts. I was really stressing about it, while my husband was, well...not stressing.(Gasp!) I have been placing  imaginary pressure from him on myself. I felt that he wanted to me to be right back to my old weight within something like 24 hours after delivery! Did he say this, you might ask? No. Did he imply this with his body language? No.

So…I don’t know why I think this.

Tonight, I decided to ease up on myself. I’m going to try morphing into my husband, to some degree. 😉 I’m going to like the way I am right now while striving to become healthier, even if it means I must maintain this current weight for six months! {shudder} I will walk when I can, and when I can’t, I won’t hate myself. I will eat right, but if I don’t stay exactly within my Points range, I won’t cry.

Last time I checked, my husband liked me the way I am. He is happy to have the five children in our lives that are the reasons for the extra 20 pounds I carry. He loves me. What a thrill!

I can relax. I can relax. I can relax. Sorry, that was just me trying to convince myself. 🙂

Enjoy your week!
Valerie
