My husband, in a moment in bed said that snacking was more important to me than sex. He’s never said anything unkind about my body or eating habits. And he was loopy from pain medication for his back and barely remembers saying it. He’s apologized several times and assured me he didn’t mean anything. But I feel crushed. It took years to have any sense of self esteem and to feel comfortable with my body. I’ve always had weight issues and I have spent more time being on a diet than not.. When he said that I feel like something inside snapped and all I can think about is how I need to loose weight— fast. I don’t know what to do with these feelings. I feel so ashamed of my body and I don’t know what to do.

    I'm sorry your feeling this way. I understand how hard it is to come to terms with "I guess this is my size forever ". With dieting keep in mind medications can affect your metabolism. So trying to boost it could help your dieting be more beneficial. Talk to your doc about ways you can do this. As of you feeling down. Maybe have one final talk to him and not just about how he made you feel but now how you are currently feeling and ask him to help you build your self esteem back. Maybe ask what you can both do to spice it up a bit. Wear something sexy but that covers the parts of you you don't like. Maybe he can give you a sexy massage. Just a few thoughts :)
