Quick question... What pizza Medifast recipes would you like to see offered in restaurants? Hoping for any response. Second question of mine... As I walk down this windy road to skinny I cant help but notice something. Skinny DOES NOT mean Pretty. Let me explain.



Talking.

To my fiancee Shannon yesterday about how excited I was that I can now feel hip bones and have definite collar bones now, and she gave her typical, 'That's great babe' response. This frustrated me and I proceeded to tell her that I wished she were more excited for me. PAUSE I have to explain the greatness that is my fiancee. Shannon is perfection. She allowed me to quit working 2 months before.

Surgery.

To focus on getting ready and it has been 2 months since.

Surgery.

And I am still not back to work. She went to every dr appt, 10day Medifast diet class, stayed in the hospital and took a week off work to take care of me post op. She has worked overtime to make up for my lost income, she has bought every protein drink known to man just to have me say YUCK I hate that one too! lol She has the.

Patience.

And compassion of a saint and is super SEXY lol. She also is unbelievably supportive of my diet. I think she knows it better than me sometimes. But in true girl fashion I had to gripe about something and here goes PLAY Shannon simply said " babe I am not and never will be obsessed with weight you knew this when we met. I thought you were breathtaking at 327lbs and see the same beautiful woman -66 lbs later." This shut me up real quick! When I started this I did it to be healthy but secretly I also did it thinking that being skinny would automatically make me see myself as pretty 24/7. So I began to look around at skinny people and NEWS FLASH they are not all pretty LOL and then I began to look at pics of myself and while I am super proud of my accomplishments and have a definite goal, which is to be muscular and healthy, I can scratch be pretty off of my list.

Thank GOD for sending me such a perfect creature her.

Patience.

And simplicity are just what the dr ordered more times than not. Anyway, see the beauty in yourself today =) MUCH LOVE.

Was...will I still look good? I know...my health was VERY important to me, but deep down was the feeling I would be winkle and ugly skinny...lol..

It's whats inside that counts. If you radiate from inside your beauty will come shinning through...indeed Jess, you are beautiful...

Love this post! Your fiance sounds wonderful and you're BOTH lucky to have eachother. You hit the nail on the head. Not all skinny people are pretty. Inside or outside..

I have a feeling my husband will feel the same as your fiance. He loved me fat, so no matter what I look like, he will love me anyway..

Good job on the weight loss. Keep up the good work..

You already are beautiful.....

Itself was for our health. I had a low self esteem not out of "feeling pretty" but b/c I didnt respect myself nor was I disciplined enough to take corrective actions to better myself..

As a "fat girl" I always thought I was Hot...lol and I still do today -77 lbs..

"Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.".

Congrats on your loss so far. You are very fortunate to share your life with someone that special..

@Josie thank you so much for your kind words... Congrats on your weight loss as well :) I couldnt trust that I would follow through with what I started and that confidence is what I love the most about this.

And you are right it does give you low self esteem. I always felt HOTT as well lol with hair and makeup done anyway ! To me it just looks like I was overfilled with air or something lol I am gonna add my before pic to my photos..
