I have a boyfriend!


So I guess the title explains it all.  Michael and I met online and started dating a few weeks ago.  We've been spending lots of time together and talking/texting all the time.  This morning we talked and decided to make things official (and even made it Facebook official, haha)!

I'm so very happy and couldn't have asked for anyone better.  He has so many great qualities and we have so much in common.

I wasn't sure when the best time to tell him about my lap-band surgery would be.  I know that some people wait awhile before talking about it.  But I wanted to be open and honest about it because if he wasn't okay with it then he obviously wasn't the right person for me.  So I told him about a week after we started dating and he was so supportive.  His ex-girlfriend had weight loss surgery so he understands all about it and all the hard work that goes into it.  He never tries to be pushy about getting me to eat things and is so respectful about that.  Which is so great, because we've been going out to eat a lot so I'm trying to be careful.  After I told him, he keeps saying how proud he is of me and is so encouraging about me wanting to reach my goals.

So far everything has been great and we're really excited to see what the future holds!

  4. I'm so happy for you!! It's wonderful that you felt comfortable enough with him to tell him about your surgery and even better that he is being so supportive. I know that one of the reasons I've been successful in my journey is due to the amazing support I get from my husband.
