Engagement Story!

Friday, October 10, 2014

My name is Jessica, I am from San Francisco, CA. I am 26 years old and am getting married October 24, 2015! It seems like a ways away, but I feel like I have so much to do! lol. Dan and I have been together since November 2012, and he is just the most amazing man ever. For the longest time I couldn't even call him "my boyfriend" because it just didn't fit our relationship, so I started telling people he is "My Forever Person", which got shortened to "My Person" lol.

Dan proposed to me just a week before my 26th birthday. He planned a whole San Francisco day for us, and our first stop was at a beautiful lookout point of the City.

He said, "The stairs we climbed paved the way to a beautiful view. We will start today as the rest of our lives. I hold your hand with each step, and I'll always know you'll hold mine right back. Each step is a little work, and we expect it, but it is worth it, because at the top there is beauty and our home together. I love you, and will love you more every day, as I have since the day we met. I would love to hold your hand each day and each step for the rest of our lives"

Then he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him! With the most gorgeous ring evvvvvver.

After that, we celebrated! We went to brunch at The Cliff House, then drove to Saucalito to a lookout point and walked around the town (and bought a christmas ornament to remember the day), and then back to SF to The Ferry Building for dinner and another beautiful view of the City. I have 3 Loves of My Life. Dan of course, San Francisco, and my dog Sparkles lol.

I have been on my weight loss and fitness journey (this time around) for a solid 2.5 years. I initially lost 30 lbs the first year and plateaued. Just recently my weight has been creeping back up so it put me back another 10 lbs :-/ Ultimately, I just want to finally get to my goal and stay there. Highest weight was 198 lbs, and today (the day I am truly recommitting to the process) I am 175. My goal weight is somewhere in between 125-137 lbs (we will see when I get there.... honestly, I like my curves, so if I am healthy and toned at 137 i'd be happy).

    Congrats on your engagement! I saw your post and it seems like we have similar goals, so I figured I'd pop over and say hi. I'm getting married June 13, 2015 and would love to be in the same weight range as you, (but honestly I'll be happy to make it to 150) Maybe we can keep each other motivated along this journey.
