I've decided that I'll never get down to my original weight, and I'm OK with that--After all, 8 pounds 2 oz. is just not realistic.
Congrats Lotsa!!! I hope this is the happiness you've been looking for
I believe in manicures. I believe in overdressing. I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick. I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.

I've gotten pretty independant and into myself because of being single for 20 years. I also have trust issues especially becuz of my x-husband.

I decided to just flow with it and follow his lead and it's been wonderful. People may see us as moving very fast, but it just seems right. I know couples who have gotten engaged after just a few months. I think there should be more concern if we decided to marry after just a few months. We both want a year to continue building our relationship and doing the counselling. We made mistakes in our 1st marriages and don't want to do the same again.

Awesome! I'm very happy for you.

I'm glad you're taking the engagement slow and doing counseling. I've done some with my SO starting just a few months into our relationship and we are so much stronger for it. We're celebrating our two-year anniversary in a couple weeks. We just had a session today and I think we pretty much have it down. At this point we just go for "maintenance" and if there's a tricky issue we cannot figure out on our own.

I used to think that if you needed counseling to make it work in the beginning stages of the relationship, it meant you weren't supposed to be together. I don't think that at all now.

Great! Congratulations!

I'll admit I was shocked to read this, but if you truly had a change of heart and were just scared silly before, then I can understand. Congratulations!

What wonderful news!!!! He sounds like a great guy!!
Congrats, Lotsa. My husband and I did pre-marital counseling and it was really helpful. It helps you discuss your expectations, which is really important. We all have them, but the other person might not necessarily know what's important to you. It's good to get those out in the open.

Best of luck to you both!

Congratulations! I wondered where you'd been lately - obviously have better things to do atm!

Some of you may remember the thread I started about the bf who was rushing me and smothering me. I had decided to end it. Well, he came over to talk Memorial Day and we got back together. It's been incredible.

He proposed Tuesday evening. He had sent me a dozen white roses to my work. He called when I got home and asked if he could stop by. He looked very serious and he took my hand and went down on one knee and asked me to marry him. I know a little corny, but I loved it.

We are hoping to get married 4/25/2013. A year from the day we 1st met. We both have to have our 1st marriages annulled thru the Catholic church, so this will take some time. We have a priest helping us with the process and we are starting couples counselling in 2 weeks.

After 20 years I have finally found my Mr. Right......

I suggest you fill out your paper work and submit it as soon as you can and try your best to get your witnesses to do the same. They can't do anything until they have all the proper documentation. You'll get through it though. Congratulations!

You are beautiful!
Hey Lotsa - good for you! It's tough finding someone you can be happy with. You said in the previous thread that you met him at a club you go to - can I ask which one? I think I may know, but want to see if I'm right!

I met him at Eli's. It was a little serendippity. He'd never been there before and one of his daughters told him to go, but not to leave before 10pm. I rarely go there on Saturday nights, but was bored and decided to go and got there at 9:45pm. He was getting ready to leave when I walked in. The rest is history.
From Michael Berg:

Every person has a unique connection to the Creator that can never be extinguished, and every person has a great soul that can manifest important things in our world. To make a person feel less than they are because of something inside themselves, be it faith, race, or sexual orientation, is the greatest sin of all."
