You will come to know that what appears today to be a sacrifice will prove instead to be the greatest investment that you will ever make." --Gordon B. Hinckley
Wow can that be applied to weight loss or what? We are making sacrifices by eating healthier, avoiding junk food, spending time at the gym, or at home exercising, maybe not going to our 'favorite' restaurants. Whether you'd like to admit it or not, weight loss is a HUGE sacrifice, and how true is it that it will be the greatest investment we will ever make? I know for me my weight loss is going to help control my asthma better, my joints won't ache as much, and my PCOS will be under better control...hopefully one day allowing me to get pregnant and have kids. As for my husband he is more 'morbidly' obese, and losing weight is going to help him in so many ways: Blood Pressure, Asthma, Joints, Sleep Apnea (hopefully). If he doesn't lose weight he may end up dying at a younger age.
Rob (my hubby) texted me earlier today, apparantly they got the orders for his oxygen, and they were so worried about his low levels (which they won't tell us just how low they are until we see the Dr on Monday) that they tried calling then were just going to come to our house 'just in case' they could catch him so he can start on the oxygen ASAP. SCARY! Thank goodness he was late to work because he was making hamburger gravy for their baked potato pot luck they had tonight. So they were able to catch him at home and get the machine all set up. Rob is a little freaked out, and said that if I wasn't going for the pot luck, he'd have me come for his lunch so I could hold him and love him better. I'm scared out of my mind, he could have died on me if they are that low that they are making it a priority/emergency, they called over 6 times this morning trying to get a hold of him but he was sleeping. Golly...now I'm crying...again
Oh and I left early from work to go to Rob's potluck, showered was ready to go, walked out the door, had my purse sunglasses, shut the door which was locked...CRAP no keys! I don't recall a time when I have EVER done that. We don't have spare keys as our landlord had them stamped Do Not Duplicate....so Rob had to come and open the house for me so I could get my keys and go to his work for the potluck. BTW Rob works about 25 minutes away :P Good thing he loves me!
