They come in three's right ?

Well, it's been the most horrible 2 weeks of my life. I haven't been on sparkpeople because I found out on halloween that my husband is having an affair and in love with the other woman. He left me in a house he tore apart to remodel and never finished. I love him but he does not want to work on our marriage and is gone. This hurts so much because our youngest child just went to college in sept. Needless to say, I'm now one pound away from my goal weight. I don't recommend this kind of weight loss to anyone. I'm trying my best right now to survive. My exercise has not stopped and I'm running my first 5k this Saturday with a lot of support from my family. The other woman was actually running this race to but she has decided not to. Thank goodness.

    I went through a similar thing except I cannot imagine how harder it is for you because 1) youre married to this guy & 2) you have children together. I commend you for sticking with your exercise but am concerned that youre losing weight that way. I did that too. I couldnt eat because I was so depressed and I also became conscious of my weight. Knowing what the other female looked like made it worse for me because I compared myself to her, always telling myself that she must look or be better than me for him to choose her over me. How I recovered from it, was I got counseling & had support from my family and close friends. All of which constantly reminded me that I was better than the person I was telling myself I was or, what he said I was. My brother suggested moving my focus to succeeding in my career. Something other than weight loss. Which I did. With more responsibilities given to me at work, I began to eat healthy to sustain energy throughout the day, continued to exercise & do really well. It must've taken me at least a year to get over things, but I noticed it became easier and easier as time passed.

    You deserve better honey. I know that it is easier said than done. I wish I could give you a hug because I know it hurts :( Cry whenever you want to cry, but always come back into focus afterwards and own everything you set your mind on. You'll be in my prayers xxo

    I am sorry. I can tell similar stories and it's really a terrible thing to go through. Just if at some point he comes crawling back, remember this moment and how he's not worth going through it again. Once a cheating scumbag, y'know.

    Continue taking care of yourself! It's wonderful that you're still in the race this weekend! Even better that the whore had the good sense to drop out of it! Maybe that weight loss over the last 2 weeks will stick and you'll be at your goal this week! I've found that if I'm sick or otherwise not eating and lose weight, it comes right back as soon as I'm better.

    I'm sorry that you have to experience this. I've been there and burnt the t-shirt. I want you to know that I am proud that you are strong enough in yourself that you are continuing with the things that will help your health. Keep up the good work and like all things in life, time makes it easier.
