In Sex Love and Obesity Part 12 - Peter had decided to move to North Carolina so that we could begin our life together. It was April now and Peter and I were just about to move in together. I admittedly wasn’t handling things very well. My life was an emotional roller coaster. I had relapsed into smoking cigarettes again the previous June & July when the grief of Father’s Day and the Anniversary of my [...]

Previously on Sex Love and Obesity - Part 11 we left of with me falling in love with Peter. Love happens when you least expect it, it’s not something you decide to feel, it’s just suddenly there and there isn’t a damn thing you can do about. I lied to everyone around me. I didn’t tell my closest friends that we had slept together. I didn’t admit that I was in love. At the time [...]

In Sex Love and Obesity Part 10, I introduced you to Peter, a man who was about to change my entire world. He was about to teach me one of the biggest lessons I have learned when it comes to relationships after weight loss. Attention seeking can lead you down a dark rabbit hole. October turned into November. Remember, I told you that November tends to be a defining month in my life when it [...]

Previously in the Sex Love and Obesity series we talked about how someone else had come along and Superman had let me go without resistance to seek the greener grass in another relationship. In my last blog discussed Dissociative Identity Disorder and how after 15 years of managing this mental health issue my next relationship choice suddenly made it a prevalent issue in my life again. Before we talk about the relationship itself, let’s talk about how it even came [...]

Dissociative Identity Disorder – My Super Power

I’ve been trying to decide how to broach this topic for a quite a while now. It’s a sensitive subject. It’s something I want to make sure I explain well so that it is not misunderstood or misinterpreted. It’s something I’ve avoided discussing publicly for fear of judgement or ridicule. But, it’s also something that I feel we need to talk about before we move forward in the Sex Love and Obesity series. Without understanding [...]

In part 8 of Sex Love and Obesity I was getting on a plane and going back to wrap up my life in Portland - put all my things in my car and move myself all the way across the country to be with the man I had loved for the last 10 years. I did that. I arrived in North Carolina in February of 2014 after 3 miserable months in Portland of trying to [...]

In Sex Love and Obesity part 7 we left of with Superman being an unattainable man in my life, me being unwilling to tell him the truth because now that I had lost all my weight for the second time in my life I was plagued with the excess skin issues that still made me uncomfortable with my own body. It is amazing, the shift that happens after you lose so much weight. I always [...]

In the last episode of Sex Love and Obesity (Part 6 - Finding the "u" in weight loss) - I introduced you to the man I loved before my husband. I think we need to give him a name. In the spirit of protecting the innocent (and the guilty) I’m going to call him Clark. Why Clark? Because to this day, he is still my Superman. Let’s pick up where the story left off. He [...]

Before we move on in this Sex Love and Obesity Series I need to roll back time a little bit and tell you about the guy before my husband. Sometimes I think that how a relationship starts determines very much how it will finish. This relationship started before my husband and I had become anything more than friends. It started with him having a free trial to the phone sex service I was working for [...]

In Sex Love and Obesity Part 4 we discussed the emotional end of my marriage. How I was about to move on and how I confident that having lost all that weight I would have no problem finding happiness with someone else. Losing weight isn’t a magic “life is great!” pill. Shocking isn’t it? I’d spent the better part of my adult life suffering from obesity and I was 100{6e74c841b8f362d8aea590534016dc569fd3035eeb9e530df8846b42682c6656} sure it was going to [...]
