A Compliment Made Me Cry

I've lost a bit of weight recently, especially since I've been logging on to MFP every day. I was really please about this because one of my favorite dresses was beginning to get a bit tight on me. After wearing it to a party the other night and discovering it to be looser than what I remembered, I told my boyfriend how happy that made me.

He turned to me and said, "You are beautiful. You would be beautiful if you were thinner, and you would be beautiful if you were heavier. You are just beautiful."

I started to cry because I felt so loved. I have never felt more accepted in my entire life.

    Wait a minute....

    You posted a month ago about his comment, and now you two are engaged?

    That might be be coolest follow-up to an original post ever.

    Congrats.
