100 lb. Club - DH coming home to a smaller me

View Full Version : DH coming home to a smaller me

My husband has been away on business for a month! A month!! I didn't mention it online because I just don't think that's wise. But he's coming home today, if the weather holds up. :devil: NYC is expecting a few feet today, apparently, and that could delay his flight. Fingers crossed! (toes too)

I have lost about 8 lbs since he was last home and inches too. I know I'm wearing a size smaller than when I saw him last. He knows I was on a plateau as he was leaving, but he does not know I broke it. ;)

I can not wait to pick him up. Single mothering is for the birds! I feel for all the single moms out there, including the moms who's husbands serve our country. You are all heroes!

I could agree with you more on the single parents of our service men and women. :)

Your husband is going to be so proud of all you've accomplished in the month!

I'm a single mother with financial backing lol (aka has a husband that travels for work...first deployment as a Marine & now he inspects ships with a private company. He travels 6-8 months out of the year, blah)

I totally understand how you feel! I loved surprising my DH with my weight loss when he'd come off of a long trip :D

have fun surprising him!!

that should be a very fun surprise, enjoy!!!!

(but I will say being a single mom isn't so bad IMO. Yes, I do all the work, but I also get all the love, so it balances out!)

Wonderful! I know my husband will be so excited when I drop a size.
