I have been divorced since 2000. My kids were 2 and 5 at the time. 9 years and 40 lbs later my time is focused on my kids, home, family and job. I have done a little on-line dating, but nothing that has lasted more than a couple weeks. I put up barriers so people don't get too close and can hurt me. The fat works well in that respect, but of course my confidence in myself goes lower everyday.
My X remarried a couple years after our divorce. Now for the 2nd time he is getting a divorce (Not his choice). They have been separated for about 4 months. It is his weekend with the kids and I just found out that he will bringing his new girl friend along for a weekend trip.
My kids are still dealing with the fact that they the family they knew is no longer in tact. No step mom, moving to an apartment and no longer seeing or spending time with their step sisters. I feel so strongerly that this will impact them negatively. He, of course thinks it is just fine and the reason I feel this way is because I don't have someone in my life.
I know this is a diet/fitness/health site, but I just needed to share. Just to tie it in with diet, I will say that all of this just makes me want to eat a brownie!
