I really like her, but I struggle with my physical attraction to her. What should I do?

I'm 35, I would like to start a family soon, and I have been dating trying to find a woman that I can build a life with. I would say I'm a catch, decent looking, 6 foot, great career. I am the type of man that a lot of women want to marry.

I had my heart broken about 2 years ago and I have had a hard time moving on since. I have had a couple of relationships since then, but I seem to have a weakness for very attractive women with bad attitudes.

With all that being said, about 3 months ago I met a woman, that isn't anything like the women I have dated before. She obviously really likes me basically and treats me how I have always wanted to be treated by a woman. Our dogs get along, we have a lot in common, and she is just easy to be with.

The problem, she is a bit overweight, and I struggle with being fully attracted to her. Everything else is good and I find myself feeling like a dick for thinking this. I like short Hispanic women with a pretty face, which she is, but he body type is not exactly my type. That's literally the only issue I have with her.

I am a pretty sexual person, but with her, I just don't have the desire to have sex all the time. I think she is attractive, and when she gets dressed up I can get into it. We have sex about 1-2 a week. But I just like hanging out with her so much, it's so comfortable it just doesn't seem important sometimes, and she doesn't seem to be bothered by it. But also isn't the type to say anything if she did feel something about it. I have feelings for her, but it's not the overwhelming lust (maybe love) I have felt with the girl that broke my heart.

I feel like this is the type of woman I need. I don't really think of it as settling, maybe just realizing I was chasing the wrong thing. But then the fact that I struggle with my attraction to her also seems like an issue. What should I do here? I feel like I could have a life with this woman if I could get past this issue in my head.
