Solid as a rock!

Guess whose birthday it is today?  It’s my wonderful husband Marc’s b-day!

How lucky am I to have this man in my life.  He has been my rock for so many years.  I cannot imagine my life without him.

He is not perfect - who is?  Certainly not me!

But despite my flaws Marc has been by my side every step of the way.  He’s been there for the worst days of my life - like the day my father died - and for the happiest moments - getting my Master’s Degree, hitting my goal weight.

When I hear women talk about having husbands that don’t support them emotionally, it just baffles me.  Men who complain about their wives taking time to exercise or cooking something that they don’t like.  Or men who sabotage their weight loss efforts by bringing unhealthy foods into the home.

I totally believe that I would still be obese if Marc had not supported me in all my lifestyle changes.  We are a team!  Yesterday he met me during my lunch so we could take a short walk for mid-day exercise.  It’s not a big deal - except it is.

He has made me feel great about myself - loving me completely from when I was “chubby” up to morbidly obese and down to normal sized. 

So to the best friend I have ever had - my biggest support - my husband - HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

I hope you have a fantastic day!


  1. Happy Birthday Mark........I too am blessed with one of those wonderful men I thank my lucky stars everyday

  2. Congrats to you both and a very Happy Birthday to your hubby!!

    I was married before to a very emotionally and sometimes physically abusive man. I allowed him to treat me terribly for over 17 years before I finally realized I couldn't fix the marriage and left. Since then, 7 years have passed. 2 years ago I was lucky enough to marry a wonderful man who, much like your Marc, supports me every step of the way. We are each other's best friend and biggest cheerleader. I finally understand what true love and marriage is supposed to be. Ain't it great??? LOL!! Have a wonderful day and do something fun together!

    1. I am so happy you found someone to treat you right!!! Hoping that you have many happy years together!!
