So this might come out as cheesy, but I feel this is an appropriate place to share my boyfriend story, so here I go.
Before my guy now, I had a string of really bad luck. One of them being a violent, abusive, traumatizing relationship that left me in a really bad spot. Like, PTSD bad. I thought that I would be alone for a really long time trying to recover.
Lucky for me, I found what I thought didn't exist - an understanding boyfriend! He's wonderful. We never fight because we talk everything out (and hug at the end), he's patient with me if my PTSD comes out or if I get anxious...he's made me happier than I thought possible, and I love him more every day for it.
Moving on...so I've been struggling with my weight my whole life, never been a healthy weight, blah blah blah. I've lost 60 pounds already, but since the abusive boyfriend my life got thrown way off (including weight loss) and it basically came to a standstill. Fortunately I didn't gain it all back! However, I'm ready to finish what I started.
The point I'm trying to make is the fact that I FINALLY have someone that supports me no matter what. And what makes it even better is the fact that my junk food addicted, anti-fruits-and-veggies boyfriend has decided to eat healthy with me. He pouted at first, but then he said ok for me he'll do it. I know that this is already impossibly long and don't want to make it any longer by going into detail, but I've never felt so completely supported by someone. In my entire life, I've felt that I needed to do it alone because nobody near me was really there for me. Now, about to enter my 25th year of life, I finally get to know what it is like to trust someone enough to be completely vulnerable with them and not have them break you.
