Day 6 of StSC: Recap of Day 5...Praise & Photos of My Beloved Who Is Mine...before I head out to ENJOY OUR BIG DAY!

Me and My Prince Last Summer (I was WAY bigger)
On June 11th, 28 years ago, in my sister's backyard, with a yellow and white striped tent giving shade to the small assembly of pals and relatives, I married my soulmate. He's been an utter delight ever since. I remember hearing how hard the first year of marriage was, the adjustment to another person.

Well, I didn't have that. We clicked. We got along. We rarely--and still rarely--argue. We laugh like mad, every day. We still find each other crazy hot and I still run to the door to greet him with a hug and kiss when he comes home.

Sometimes, I just lay my head on his chest for a couple minutes to savor his safe return.

with those Asian eyes!
I'm blessed with the perfect man for me. Maybe not for anyone else on this nutty planet, but for me, he's a haven, a sanctuary, a playground, all in one lovely male package. Life with him is peaceful, fun, full of giggles, full of comfort, and full of great discussions about topics big and small.

I also really, really, really, really like canoodling with his hot self. :D

And he smells good. It makes my head spin. Top-notch pheromones.

And he has "Asian eyes"...Magyar eyes, I suppose. The Hungarian in him shows. See the pic above right. Cover his lower face. Ignore the rosy European coloring. Asian eyes..and I ADORE ASIAN EYES. (Japanophilia is rampant within my bosom.)

He married me when I was near-normal weight: 150 lbs.  I grew ill, became a recluse from illness for a long spell, suffered awful dark nights of the spirit, & ballooned to 299 lbs. The whole while, he was the brilliant light that kept me from just diving into a death spiral of depression. He never called me fat or showed disapproval at my naked body. He was always approving of my dreams, supportive of my efforts, and, frankly, besottedly adoring of me.

Who explains such mysteries? True love is a weird, puzzling, powerful, sustaining, wonderful thing. It keeps you from losing hope when things are pretty damn bleak in your blue mind and in your diseased flesh.

At the Hatsume Festival Back in March...still besotted

The Face That Makes My Heart Sing!
So, thank you, Merciful God--and thank you, my beautiful beloved--for so many good times, good memories, lovely laughs, comforting embraces, and for the daily astonishment that you are so right for me.

Back in February...a night full of laughs and hugs...
The legs that drive me wild..back in the 70s (He was a major good Ultimate Frisbee-er)
First time I saw him in shorts, I just about passed out...whoo...
Loving me young and slim with the smile that still makes ME smile...(Yep, that's us in 1982
with my nieces and young and fresh and madly in love and ENGAGED,
and yes, I weigh like 145 pounds there and had natural curls)

Loving me fat and sick and older, with that smile still making me smile...
Still making me all dizzy with desire when you drum
all intense and sexy-like...(at a public performance of Brazilian music)
You are still the one!

The day we became one! Handsomest groom EVER!
And he still looks at me with that tender sweetness!

Anyway, that was just me exploding all over y'all with my mad love. Thanks for your patience.

Recap of Day 5 of StSC:

Calories: 1143
Fluids: All in.
Exercise: 30 minute walk; shoulders/triceps/upper back still sore, so no push-ups work.
Prayer: Yes!
Sleep: Um, don't ask. Yawn.
Encouragement: I did, again, only some blogs. You guys are numerous!

Hope everyone is working toward their StSC goals.

God bless your weekend with health and lots and lots of love!

Happy Anniversary, Princess. To both of you. I wish you a lovely day and many more happy years ahead. I found my soul-mate later in life but it has been a wonderful 15 years. A few hitches here and there but nothing we didn't overcome. I wish you the very best on your special day and on every day to come.

Have a beautiful & blessed anniversary! I loved hearing a little more of your love story. You are both blessed to have found each other & your story is inspiring. I have a wonderful, kind, funny and loving husband of my own. He has loved me through many ups & downs weight & mental health related. I don't know what I would do without him. We celebrate the 25th anniversary of our 1st date the end of this month.

For one: HAPPY ANIVERSARY.Today is special for me, too. My first daughter and baby's 25th birthday! My parents also got married in 1950 on this date. And now you made another happy moment to add to it!
I am curious to the picture behind you...I am always an art watcher. I think your man is sexy with the stubble on the chin.
You are very lucky to have found a functional loving soulmate. I mean functional in opposition of disfunction as the meanie kind of guys that some women have to deal with (me as one). I wanted a tender loving chest like you have, but mine had his hands beating constantly upon his. Both of my trials were like that.
You express your relationship so well. I get the vibes. I actually have been thinking about the topic of unconditional love. The weight acceptance, the change of hair color, style, the eventual drool from age they should gladly dab with a Seriously. It is a long haul and all the ups and downs should be just be the do re mi's in a love song.
