Where do I begin this love story and how it relates to Sparkpeople? Maybe I should just start at the beginning.
I needed to loose some weight for my own self esteem, as well as my health. I had gained weight taking some medication as a cancer follow up. So after 5 years, my Dr. and I agreed it was time to stop taking it. I allowed several months to drop some pounds with the help of Sparkpeople.
I talked in my April blog post about a dear friend of mine who lost her battle with cancer. She and her husband worked in the school district with me. After watching my beloved friend's husband grieve so sadly for his loss, I decided I needed to help in some way. It had been over a year since her death. Long story short, in being available to discuss his loss and let him talk about is love for her, we realized that our spirits were connected. A bond developed that was obvious to everyone we knew, except me I guess.
Our friends started to notice that he wasn't as sad as he had been for so long. That he was smiling more, that he was coming alive again.
And then it happened. He approached me and made the first move to make the relationship more than just a friendship. And every day it's a little more loving and every day it's a lot more obvious that we have a spiritual bond that is growing.
I love this man and he loves me.
And without the loss of a few pounds with the help of Sparkpeople, I don't think I would be as comfortable in my own skin as I am today.
And I'm going to continue to improve my health, not just loose the weight. Because we would like to enjoy the rest of our lives together in joy and health!
Wish me luck.
