Quote from "Nights in Rodanthe"

Monday, June 08, 2009

DH and I watched "Nights on Rodanthe" with Richard Gere and Diane Lane last night. (I bought it for $1 at a yard sale this weekend.)

I loved this quote at the end of the film, when the main character is speaking to her daughter.
"....there is a different kind of love one that gives you courage to be better then you are and that makes you think ANYTHING is possible. I want you to hold out for it."

How true! When I think back to my former relationships (well before I met DH) because of my obesity I gravitated towards anyone who showed me what thought was "love". In reality these guys were NOT the type to give me the courage to be who I am, and even better than I am.

I am so very thankful that God brought my DH into my life ten years ago.... he is an awesome man.

I finally saw the scale move a little bit today -- down 1.5 lbs. for a total of 32 lbs. gone. I know part of the culprit is my lack of exercise this past week. If I move more, the scale will move more!

Here's to being more active (either at the gym or on my home elliptical) this week.

    Congrats on your weight loss. Say goodbye to 1 1/2 more pounds forever.

    I am a firm believer that God puts people in our lives for a reason. Your DH is just what he thought you needed. Cherish what you have.

    Good Luck on your journey. I am very proud of you.

    Take Care and God Bless ! ! !
