Talking 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. 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

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!)
