Guest blog by Polar's Dad

So I asked my husband if he wanted to do a guest blog, and he jumped at the chance, so here it is...


After reading her last post yesterday I wonder to myself if I should be jealous of Sheldon Cooper?  Since I don’t consider myself a nerd and my wife does, I think I should be worried that Sheldon is going to come and sweep her off her feet right in front of me and I won’t understand what is going on due to all the scientific knowledge being thrown around. 

I am here to support my wife in her goal to lose weight.  I will help her and do anything that I can do to make it easier for her.  I will eat fish, even though I cannot stand the taste of most fish, and try new dishes that I would normally never even look at let alone try.  
But I owe a lot to my wife who basically helped me out of one serious funk that I was in 4 to 5 years ago.  When I met her I was probably as close to my low point in my life as I could ever possibly be.  I went through a very bad break up with my whore for an ex-fiance.  She made me so self-conscious of myself that although not diagnosed I would say that I had a social disorder.  

I was unable to do anything outside of my own house.  I couldn’t even force myself to get out of the house to go do things with my friends or my brothers.  If I had to go to the store I would either go after 10pm when I knew no one would be there or around 6am for the same reason.  I even had problems going to work and had to literally talk myself into going after sitting in my car for 5 to 10 minutes.  
Then I met my wife at work and she helped me out of my funk I was in and has encouraged me to get back out and do things.  She was very understanding and wasn’t pushing me if she knew I was not up for it that day. I am not a person who really likes school all that much. but she has encouraged me to get back into school to help better my career. Even though I didn’t do it as fast as she would have liked I did get back into school at the beginning of 2010 and I am actually kind of enjoying it.  
My beautiful wife helped me turn my life around and I can’t do enough or say enough to thank her for the help that she gave me to become the person I am today.  She might not think that she had a lot to do with it but she had everything to do with it.  I can honestly say that I don’t know where I would be today if she wouldn’t have helped me and gave me that little push that I needed and believed in me.  For me that was something I wasn’t use to having-my significant other actually believing in me and trying to help me through my struggles instead of putting me down and making me feel like I was a worthless POS. 

I know she will accomplish her goal weight with this diet because once she puts her mind to something she will accomplish it.    I am very proud of her for making the decision to better herself and myself for that sake (but she is the one that matters the most). 

I wish everyone that reads her blog the best and continued success in your life and hope you all achieve what you are striving for. 

Sheldon Cooper you better sleep with one eye open because I am coming for you.

It's so great that you two found each other. She helped you get to where you are and now it's your turn to help her get to where she wants to be. It's perfect.

Don't worry, Sheldon Cooper doesn't really have what it takes to keep a real woman. He won't even try to make a baby the old fashion way 'cause he thinks it's too messy. Sheldon's just the fantasy, you get her in real life where it really matters.
