About a year ago I began seeing my OB/GYN because of infrequent periods and the thought that I wanted to soon be pregnant. He first mentioned that being overweight probally had a correlation. I was in such denial thinking that couldn't possibly be it! To my surprise I seem to be at great risk of being diagnosed with insulin intolerance due to obesity. I lost 20 lbs and have drastically improved my numbers. I'm scared that I haven't lost enough weight and that as soon as I get pregnant by 3rd trimester I will end up on a drug for the insulin/BS issues. I spent months trying to get my husband on track with a healthy lifestyle. I just feel so defeated because now he has lost 60 lbs (working out religiously, good diet) and here i'm floundering. I feel left behind and still the 'fat one'. I'm excited for him, he looks great. But he constantly talks about how great he looks. Meanwhile I sit here thinking about how I look incredibly unattractive and the fact I might just gain everything I struggled to lose with pregnancy. I don't get how i struggle so hard and work my ass off...and he can just switch his mind and motivation from couch potato to Buff stud in a matter of months. Anyone else go through something similiar?

I have had a sweet tooth my entire life. When around carbs, or sugar, I feel as though all control is lost and I just have to eat. I find myself running to bakeries, and grocery stores the moment I have money in my pocket. I could buy three packages of Oreos, and eat them all in under an hour. I hate myself for it afterwards. I hate the way it makes my body feel, I hate the way I can't stop...
I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips. Not interested in being with couples and kids,,,I realize a cruise ship will have a portion size of families and couples, but perhaps they also put together a part of the cruise ship for groups of widows/widowers????
