    Slim Sharrie,

    That's awful, I'm very sorry to hear that.

    On a plus note however, fantastic for you doing something for yourself! He'll soon see what a fantastic strong woman you are.

    Best of luck and looking forward to seeing you progress on here. :D

    You're going to be going through a really tough time emotionally for quite some time hon... *hugs*

    Think of losing weight as your positive thing through it all. It's something you can control and influence, it will give you more self esteem, as you say, and is something so personal to you that nobody else can take away from you...if you see what I mean!

    It would be so easy to turn to food to comfort yourself, but this wouldn't be a good thing...so your idea to lose weight is perfect. You'll be healthier, feel better and probably stronger to deal with all the sh*t you're going to have to deal with.

    Good luck...and don't forget that there's oodles of support here when you need it.

    Thanks

    Thanks to everybody who has replied to me!! I am finding it really difficult at the moment - I have an ache inside me which wont go away, I am heart broken!

    I keep thinking of all the negatives like him starting a future without me, making plans, without me and worst of all meeting somebody else!!! How do I cope with that?

    I feel so sad and confused :confused:

    Sorry for moaning...

    Thanks 'Fallen Angel' I can't see any positives at the moment and can't seem to move forward. I feel so lonely.

    I could do with a brain transplant and remove him from my mind for 6 months.

    I'm so sorry, what a pig. Try and think of all the horrible times with him, don't dwell on the good times it will make you feel worse. Is he having a mid life crisis? You need to grieve for a while, but it's a brand new start for you too, and the possibilities for your own future are endless. Good luck x
