This last weekend, my wife and I gave each a big hug. You know one of those hugs to show how much you love each other. A hug that reminds you that you are lucky to have such a great partner in life.

As we're hugging, my wife says "I can touch my hands!" Yep, as she was hugging with her arms around my mid-section, she was actually able to interlock her fingers behind my back. She was so happy about it and told me she was so proud of what I've accomplished. It made me so happy!

It probably doesn't seem like a big deal, but it felt so good to me. I was about my heaviest(~420 lbs) when we started dating, so this is the smallest she's ever seen me. I don't see my progress very often, especially a NSV, so this will be one of those moments I will never forget.

I just had to share this moment, and remind everyone to enjoy all of the victories on your journey!
