I am 51years old and have been overweight my whole life. Overweight turned into obese after my first child. After six children, I didn't want near a scale or mirror. Self esteem in the toilet. The story of the woman who just wanted to touch Jesus' robe cause she knew he would heal her has had an affect on me. I too know with His help success is months away. I feel more empowered than ever before. This needs to be an informed journey not an emotional one. Learning to like me. Can't wait to cross my legs when sitting, lifes simple pleasures.

I need advice (long)
I am so sorry you are hurting right now. Men and women are so very different it is amazing sometimes that we can share the planet at all. Respect yourself and your feelings. Talk to him. Tell him how you feel without going on the attack. Be prepared for him not to get it. Sounds like you two are in different places of maturity. Respect his need to go out with his friends even if that means drinking to excess. He wants/needs to be respected. I suspect you are the one that is going to have to make the first move to save your relationship. Don't fool yourself that marriages are 50/50. It doesn't work that way. Ideally it all balances out though. Without sacrificing yourself, be the wife he wants. He will step up. Pray about it too. You CAN do all things through He who strenghtens you. Keep the faith. Good luck
