    I listen to these podcasts about how people have lost a lot of weight, suddenly gained a love for exercise or became a jogger/runner, and became a different person. I was a thin, good looking woman and now I am a fat, middle-aged frump. It makes me mad when I consider the world treats me differently based on how I look. It makes me not want to try to lose weight or look better. My family and close friends should love me for who I am, not what I look like. It is not like I am a different person if I am 70-80 pounds heavier. I still have feelings. It is so sad. I feel almost rebellious against losing weight because of this. My husband and I don’t have much of a romantic relationship anymore, and he claims it is not because of my appearance but because he is tired all the time. I don’t buy that. If I were a supermodel laying next to him every night, he would have no problem. How do I get over my rebellious attitude toward losing weight? I think I keep the weight on because I am mad at society and for the people around me in general, for not loving me as I am. I know it is a sick thought and I shouldn’t feel this way. But I do. I am sick of being judged because of the way I look. I just want to escape from everyone and everything.
