In a good place

Last night, hubby and I were able to go on a date!  Woo hoo!  I probably won't see him much now that football season has started.  He is the head coach for the High School freshman team.  They practice really late and get so busy.  It was really nice to spend an evening with just was lovely.  We were able to share dinner, going out for the first time since we were both sleeved.  We shared a grilled fish taco and a shrimp taco with a side of pinto beans.  He only ate the fish and some beans, I ate 4 pieces of shrimp and then some of the insides of the taco (cabbage and dressing) and some beans.  There were some left over (tortillas and salsa and veggies, and lots of beans), but we were both full.  We are going to be cheap dates :)

I am really enjoying the sleeve right now.  It is a wonderful tool!!  I am actually feeling full for the first time...ever!  It is a nice feeling to eat only a few bites and be done.  I am also in a good place with my weight loss.  I am losing a pound around every third day lately and I am thrilled with that!  I was down again this morning, which leads me to 75 lbs. lost!!!  Yay!!!

My clothes are literally falling off and I am really going to have to go shopping for some new ones.  I have a few that I can still wear, those that I haven't worn in years, but I am going to need some new ones.  I am getting comments all the time and I am liking the way I look :)  This is really fun!

My husband is doing very well, too.  He is now almost a month out and has lost 40 lbs. total, 20 of which is since surgery. Crazy!!  He is very competitive and really wants to catch me, ha ha!  He is looking good (rowr!! lol!) and feeling better every day.  He is anxious to get off mushies and is getting bored with his limitations, but he is a trooper.  I am SOO glad we are doing this together.  Makes a world of difference!!

I am so happy for you both! It sure makes it easier when you have a supportive spouse and for you, to have him going through the same this is a bonus! You'll be at your goal in no time Sandy! I just hit mine this week and I still can't believe it! To say I am happy is an understatement!
