Trying Not to Get My Hopes Up

Hubby and I were IMing today and I highlighted the part that intrigued me:

Hubby: what up

me: My next appt with dr. v is the 28th
       I haven't lost anything
       I need you to help motivate me
       I can't do it on my own

Hubby: yes, I can do that... :)
       have you been taking the meds he prescribed?

me: yes

Hubby: cool

me: I missed a week

Hubby: k

me: but then I got back on it

Hubby: no worries... :)
       lets do this thing

me: I just haven't been eating what I should
       And I know it's my fault
       I have lots of guilt
       my bowl is sloshing

Hubby: roger...
       here is what I want you to do. reschedule the appt for next month before 20th

me: ok

Hubby: tonight, you and I will write out some "rules" for us to follow...and me to enforce

me: ok

Hubby: tomorrow, you will go to the grocery store and stock up on the first things we'll need        (2-3 days of stuff) and we'll kick this thing :)

me: alright

Hubby: i love u
       so much

me: i love you too
       thank you

I plan on bringing home wine for us to share during our talk. I should know better than to get my hopes up about Dd. I doubt that's what he means by "enforce". I just can't help myself. I've got all these thoughts swimming in my head and I just know I'm setting myself up for disappointment. But a girl can hope, right?


  1. Stay cool lilmiss! He's practicing the art of leading and that is a really wonderful thing. Gosh, I know how tempting it would be to set yourself up for what you think he might be pondering. I'm not too sure how to explain it, but this thing he's doing now is so good for both of you and if you can hold yourself back to allow him to lead his way, you become a better follower and you build up his confidence. It's all good!

    1. I wish I would've read this before we had our talk. But you are right...
