@cbee:  It is so interesting to me. I could write a novel on how the world treats you differently when you are deemed more “attractive” according to society’s standards. Just in hospitality and retail alone I am baffled by the better service I recieve now versus before when I was heavier. The world is a funny place.

@sehrler:  You and your Fiance look perfect together. Seriously!

@Mrs.Firefly1:  Thank you! I took me about 18 months to lose the first 120 pounds and in the past month or so I have lost another 10. I had about a year where I was just at a plateau and didn’t really try to lose, just not gain.

@bestbuddies:  Ha ha I agree! Baked goods are the devil in my house. I do go a little overboard sometimes with avoiding certain foods and my Fiance says I am too hard on myself. I think after losing a great deal of weight it is hard to NOT focus on every bad thing about yourself, it is very frustrating. Today my Fiance brought me a chocolate milkshake. Love him for thinking of me but uggggh the calories. I drank it because I work hard enough to be able to have some minor splurges every now and then, but boy do I feel guilty sometimes.

@Treejewel19:  yeah, it is very hard. Also, I LOVE, LOVE to bake. DH also has a sweet tooth but he just gets to stay skinny. LOL Seriously, if I could stop piggin out on baked goods I would probably loose a bit of weight…but, it is a serious addiction that I have tried to stop many times. SIGH….

We are similar in size now, but I’ve weighed more than him our entire relationship. I’m working hard to change that, but he’s still got 30 lb. on me for now.

I am so much bigger than my Fiance…  uch.  He’s 6’1″ and about 165, I’m 5’7″ and well over 200…  my goal is to lose about 50 lbs before the wedding… that’s on top of the 10lbs I’ve lost so far!

I wouldn’t even worry about it.  You two love eachother and that is what matters!

For the record, my husband is 52 and I am 29.  He is 508 155 (on a heavy day) where I am 504 and 250.  We are an odd couple but we are soul mates and nothing can change that!

@Treejewel19:  What an interesting study on human psychology.  You should write a book!  I experienced that to an extent when I was younger- I lost 30 pounds from 7th to 8th grade.  All of a sudden I was “popular” and people thought I was cool, I got asked out.  The year before, those people had been very cruel to me.

I think your story is really special and beautiful.  I am proud of you for working so hard, and I know you and your SO are special, will love one another through anything.  That is what it is about!

@bestbuddies:  That is like me, I can’t NOT eat sweets.  If I can only eat X amount of calories in a day, I want them all to be ice cream and candy!  ๐Ÿ™‚
