Dear Friends,
After much soul searching and analyzing what I want and deserve, I have decided to seek legal counsel and free myself from this marriage that has so damaged my self image. I plan to shed about 160 pounds in the coming months. Thanks to all for your kindness and incredible support.

Well done! Onwards and upwards.

Good for you!
So, what's the plan?
Exercise and diet?

oh hairy legs, read the OP at least. More of a solicitors' appointment than a fitness trainer situation :D

I am so sorry that my message was not clear. I am the OP of the thread titled Spouse thinks I am too fat to have sex with. My plan is to ditch160 pounds of vile husband. I apologize for the confusion.

Blueeyes, well done you! I hope your legal counsel is helpful, and keep us posted.

Congratulations- your new life awaits you.

Best decision. I read your other thread, you deserve so much better.

I read your earlier thread and seems that 160lbs has been sitting round your neck for some time, deliberately dragging you down... Good luck and I hope you find peace and happiness.

Thank you Cogito! I feel strong enough to take this on and come out on the other side happy, healthy, and whole.

I read your thread! What a wonderful diet you plan to embark on grin

I'm afraid this diet plan is a bit overdue. I'm just so thankful that I am finally strong enough to close this miserable chapter and move on to a new life. Everyone deserves to be loved and treated with respect. I'm ready!!!

Great diet plan! (I read your original thread).

A close friend shed 240lbs about 18 months ago for similar reasons. Best thing she ever did! Onwards and upwards!

Well done grin thanks

Good decision.

I managed to lose 220 pounds 3 years ago.
Surgical intervention. grin

Well done you! I read your OP and was genuinely shocked by what this extra weight was doing to your life! Good luck and I hope you're much happier soon. thanks

I got a bit worried when I saw the title...

But then laughed when your brilliant plan became clear smile

There can be no doubt that you're doing the right thing.

"Everyone deserves to be loved and treated with respect."

Yes! Absolutely true. Never let yourself forget it.

Blueeyes I think a diet like this will be great for your health and wellbeing and definitely good for your heart.

You sound very strong but it will be tough. There are times when you might be tempted to go back to your old habits. But we will be here if you falter

Good luck!
