I can totally relate to what you're saying, Donna!
I was a runner for many years, and very physically fit. Then along came menopause, followed by widowhood and depression, and voila`-- much more of me to love these days! I'm still quite active (though not with the intensity I used to have because of time constraints), and eat well. I do have a metabolic disorder, though (PCOD), and so the weight is tough to shed.
Like you, I firmly believe that God will provide the person who will love me for me--in fact, my Shrek and Princess Fiona post pretty well sums it all up!
Ahhh Shrek, once again a fairy tale character captures our hearts. What I would not give to have a real life Shrek!
But perhaps I need to work on being more like Fiona?!?!?!?!
