I had my surgery 5 years ago and lost 320 lbs over a 3 year span. My husband had insecurity issues after I lost the first 200 lbs (in the first year). But no matter how bad he got, I stuck it out. Each incident got a little worse than the one before. Well in the past 6 months it got horribly bad. I am now left with a bank account in the red, he drained it. I am in foreclosure on my house because he made it impossible for me to make payments. He's drinking, gambling, and cheating...the trifecta of bad husband behavior. And now I am left wondering why I stayed so long, and I am afraid it's because I didn't want people to think I left because I "lost weight"...I didn't want to be one of those marriages. I feel so stupid. Why did I do this to myself? I really don't think I would have stuck around so long or tried so hard if I was still that morbidly obese wife I used to be. Does that make sense? Am I crazy? Have any of you gone through anything like this? BTW, I did smarten up eventually. I filed for dissolution, which will be in 3 wks and have a new bank account that he can't access.
