After 7 years of marriage I left my husband because we were at a point where I knew he did not love or care for me, and I was tired of settling for someone who did not put in the effort like I did. My stbx claims he was tired of me being overweight because I not only looked ugly, I acted ugly. I can admit, I am not happy with my weight (I went from size 10 to 16) and have wanted to change it for a long time. I gained weight when I had my 2 kids, 6 and 2. But am I wrong to still feel like it wasn't all my fault? When I tried to approach him in a reasonable manner so that we could come up with a plan to eat healthier/be more active he would say he didn't think he should suffer and sacrifice because I was fat. When I went to weight watchers and saw weight coming off he would convince me to quit going. He was not supportive of anything. Am I wrong to think that maybe he has issues within himself that caused him to be unhappy and take it out on me? Am I wrong for thinking he should have loved me and supported me no matter what, because I am beautiful on the inside? Anyone one else been through this kind of thing?
