I thought they had the most precious story. Of course, I have a soft spot for couples who meet online and are long distance.
Listen To Your Heart
It’s no longer uncommon for newlyweds to tell you they met online. It’s the perfect way for two busy soul mates who live on opposite coasts, like Amber and Derek, to find each other. They connected via a website called BlackPeopleMeet.com back in early 2009. She lived in San Diego and he was logging in from his home in Brooklyn. They “clicked” instantly — pun intended! — and kicked off a friendship filled with long phone calls and fun webcam chats. After a year of virtual bonding, Amber and Derek gave in to the overwhelming affection they felt for each other and upgraded their relationship from friendship to “official” couple. “Derek asked if I would be his girlfriend,” recalls Amber. “I said ‘yes!’ We then decided to take the next step and finally meet.” It was the craziest thing she’d ever done, but when Derek offered to fly Amber to New York for five days to visit so they could finally enjoy each other’s company up close and personally, she happily accepted.
If I Had One Wish
After a year of long-distance love, Amber and Derek had mastered making their relationship work. For her birthday, she flew out to visit him in New York. When she arrived, she was disappointed to find that he had no real special plans for her big day — or so she thought.
The next day her local friends picked her up for dinner, and when they arrived at her favorite restaurant, Derek, his family, and all their friends were waiting to honor her with a surprise birthday party. “I could not stop crying,” says Amber. “I was so shocked. After we ate, the waitress brought over my birthday cake and Derek told me to make a wish. I closed my eyes and wished for him to propose and when I opened them, Derek had placed a ring box on the table in front of me.” He got down on one knee and asked Amber to be his wife, and just like that, her big wish had instantly come true.
A year later they became husband and wife in a romantic ceremony filled with whimsical joy. Share their love!

Same outfit, approximately 6 months apart. I may not love what I look like now, actually there is a lot I wish I could change, but I know I have made the right decision in choosing recovery. The day I took the picture on the left, I water loaded myself to weigh ten pounds heavier. I had woken up at 3:30 in the morning to exercise like crazy until my parents got up to monitor my weight and make sure I ate every ounce of my breakfast. The picture on the right was taken a few days ago. I didn’t mean to put on this outfit to take a before and after picture, but the minute I put the shorts on I remembered this picture. I cannot believe the difference. I do not even know the girl that was on the left. Yes, I may have been skinny, but I was days away from killing myself. Literally days. Today, I actually want to live my life and have a future. Today, I may be uncomfortable with my body, but I am learning how to accept that. #transformationtuesday #beforeandafter #weightrestored
Holy fucking crap! I think this - by far - is my favorite recovery before/after. The change and her testimonial are amazing.
Yay you ♡
I don’t think I can ever reblog this enough, you are such an inspiration, and your smile on the right photo is just amazing. ♥
