I married my best friend on August 23rd, 2013.
I have always had the worst self-esteem issues. I used to tell myself I was unworthy of any type of love because I was not comfortable in my own skin. I hated myself. I did everything in the book to lose weight only to gain it back in a few short weeks.
Since meeting Matt, he has shown me an unbelievable type of love. He showed me that I was beautiful. That my weight was a number. That my curves were an add on to the personality. He tells me I am beautiful every single day to where I wake up every morning and I believe it. It took me 23 years to realize it. It took me through one horrifying relationship experience for a guy to tell break me down mentally, sexually, emotionally, and physically for me to find a person like Matt who helped rebuild me and helped me believe I was more then my body weight. It took me finding this blog to realize women are beautiful creatures no matter the size, the weight because in the end it is just a number.
and dammit, I will eat that slice of pizza with ranch and a Dr. Pepper proudly now.
I do have my days, but there are less of them now. I am proud of who I am, of what my body is.
Best of luck to all you ladies. Please feel free to add me. I’d love to meet more people like me :)
