I was looking the pictures of me, kristy, and the kids at the zoo from a few days ago and it reminded me of our trip last October. Looking at those pictures I couldnt believe how much the kids have grown from then to now and how good Kristy looked both then and now and then I saw some pictures of me. Holy crap I was gigantic.
When I met Kristy I weighed 225 pounds and was fairly athletic and in 5 short years i had pretty much stopped excersizing and weighed almost 310 pounds. I cant even explain to you the love and respect I have for my wife who loved me unconditionally and never said a word about my weight. All she ever told me was "I love you and if you are happy with the way you look thats all that matters." Well I wasnt happy so a few dietary changes and a set workout schedule took me from 310 pounds to 230 pounds. And while that is awesome and one of the hardest things I have ever done the person that reserves real credit is my wife. I don't know any.. ANY.. guy who could watch their wife gain 80 pounds and not call them out. It takes a strong person to loose 80 pounds but it takes a remarkable person behind that person to quietly motivate them to make their life better both physically and mentally.
I love you honey and you make me want to be a better person and even if I dont always make you feel that way please forgive me and I will try harder.
