You look gorgeous in that last photo!!  I’ve been struggling with my weight the last three years, going all over the scale and only wearing maxi-dresses for so long that I forgot what it was like to wear jeans.  Like you, I got myself out of an abusive relationship and then met my Darling Husband.  We had a child together (at the time, marriage was not something I thought I wanted, although a stable, committed relationship was) and I gained almost a hundred pounds over the course of the pregnancy and the following two years.  I’d been underweight all of my life, so it’s felt a bit like wearing a new body, and not an entirely negative one!  I love having a butt! 

But (ha) trying on wedding dresses brought out every insecurity I thought I’d put behind me. I got down to around your current weight for my wedding and felt beautiful… but then I went bonkers.  Let’s just I’ve never met a cupcake or bread pudding that wasn’t down for a ménage à trois.  I have an anxiety disorder (PTSD), and maybe the stress of the wedding was a bit much, because after it was over I stopped caring about being healthy and ate.  A lot.  My weight shot back up, of course.  Now, I’m being kinder to myself, although I eat the same things (darn you bread pudding), I just don’t eat three at one time.  So, I wouldn’t say I’m happy with my shape right now~ hello, flap creature~ but… I am happy with my attitude and what I’ve overcome. 

Isn’t the solid relationship so wonderful?!  Congrats on finding your inner badass.
