On the bright side, is there any better diet than the heartbreak diet? I've always been thin but had been struggling to lose the last few remaining baby pounds for a year. Boom - just like that, I'm back in my size 24 jeans and 0-2 dress size. I can go shopping in my own closet and rediscover all the cute things that had gotten a smidgen too tight - in addition to the new things I've acquired in my post-affair shopping spree. Ironic that the girl my husband cheated with was twice my size. To think of all the extra helpings of dessert I could have treated myself to over the years if only I had known he was into that sorta thing. Sometimes, I think I'm more mad about all those missed opportunities for cake. Lol. At least I haven't lost my ability to laugh at myself and the world around me.
P.S. I'm still up and down, but hopeful. H has been genuinely remorseful, has maintained NC, and we both believe we can get our marriage to a stronger place than it's ever been. There is still much love between us, so I am hopeful - but wisely wary - that we can make it work.
