Ya ya so the title suggests I am on the ghetto side. But really I am super freakin' impressed and proud of Mr. Jones. He always said that he would quit being foolish with his weight and health when we got pregnant. He wanted to be the healthiest dad possible for a few reasons, but mainly to set a good example for our kiddo, and to have the energy to keep up with the little dear.
We found out in May that we did in fact have a bun in the oven, and boom the race was on. I didn't know how serious he was, or what his goal weight would be. But he was damn determined to lose what he could.
He went from 285 to 216. UhMAZing. Those size 44 waist pants? Try a 34 now. He feels great, he looks great, and couldn't be happier.
I was going to make something short and sweet about this to post on my facebook page. Like a "my husband rocks because..." type post. I got to reading around the junked up mess that is my news feed and saw that something like that would not do him justice. I think that the people who constantly post how awesome their husbands/ boyfriends/ etc are... is slightly comical. Do you need the constant affirmation that your man is awesome because he put the toilet seat lid down? He brought you a cookie/ fed you dinner/ did your dishes/ gave up his man card and went shopping with you? I guess I should be happy -er for how "blessed" everyone is (I see that word about 10,000 times a day on the news feed , oh and this one "I love my life" over and over and over. Don't get me wrong, I am pretty happy with my circle of peeps, but good god I don't have to inform 500+ people all damn day about how much better my life is than theirs. Maybe a facebook hiatus is in my near future. Or a spree to hide people. Hmmm...
Got side tracked sorry - aside from all that I am blessed this and that bullshit. All I have to say is this - Dude, my man lost like a whole person in weight just so he could be the best daddy he could be to help me and the little one out (and she isn't even here yet). And yours brought you a pumpkin to carve? ha. ha. ha. If Brett has already put in this much effort I can't imagine what an awesome dad he is going to be.
