Congratulations on the relationship. I know where you're at. About 6 or so years ago, I had ended a relationship and was a lot bigger than when I started it. I decided to re-claim my body and was well and truly on the track. I was losing weight, going to the gym regularly and loving it (I mean I was doing pump, step and boxacise classes
). I was loving my new shape and my new fitness and felt great about myself. Because I was so wonderfully happy with me, it showed and I met a guy, we fell in love, moved in together, got engaged and built a house.
Sadly for us, it fell apart about 5 years after it started and I left the relationship bigger than I've ever been in my life. I was so happy in the safety of the relationship that I stopped exercising because I wanted to spend time with him. I changed my focus from me to him and paid the price.
I know my story is a bit doom and gloom but I'm now 113kg and struggling to find my focus and determination. A new relationship is such a wonderful gift but so are you, to yourself and your loved ones. You have had such an amazing journey so far so don't stop. You are an inspiration to all of us who feel we are losing our own battle.
Get him involved so that you can still focus on you and spend time with him. Remember that you also need to be apart so he can miss you and want you even more than he already does and spending time focussing on your healthy lifestyle will give him that time.
I hope it all goes well.
