Over to CN.
“I have always been obese. After two kids, a sedentary lifestyle and eating to be happy, I weighed a 106 kgs and was ready to become a hothouse of diseases. And then he came into my life. Throwing away my body issues so lightly, he made me realize that we all have the same sexual feelings as the next person. His simple approach to love, the way my body responded to his touch and still does when I see him was just the motivation for me to get out of my mental doldrums and today I have lost weight.
Today, I can sit on his lap, across him, and many times, I try to hold off my weight, and he just smiles and tells me to sit ‘fully’. That moment. To me is acceptance. Warts and all. Of who I am. No pretenses.
I think I embarrass him a bit when I thank him for motivating me. I guess love is also when you want to be the best version of yourself. Maybe I learned this a bit late, but what I did realize is that you just have to love yourself first… however cliched that sounds. I would love it if you posted this and I can share it with him…and maybe for a change hear him mumble under his breath rather than the usual teasing which still makes me blush. And what I love him for. Among other things. “
