Of course, [he] won't compliment [her] on her weight loss. He wanted her fat! Because of his insecurities. He doesn't want her to feel good about herself! That's what all these years have been about. Keep that self-esteem on the floor! He knows he's not good enough for her, he's known it all along, and if she ever realized that, she'd be GONE! And guess what? That's exactly what happened! Tell her...take her time...she doesn't need a man to define herself. If the right one is out there, he's out there. She won't find him if she's tied down to ONE, just so the world knows she CAN get a guy. Take it from one who's been there. Screw the world, too. She's not the fat chick anymore. She's free and single because she WANTS to be! And if Mr. Right isn't out there, well, there's a lot of Mr. Wrongs you can sport f--Well, let's juts say she figured I could "enjoy" them. Yeah, not really my thing, but I get her drift.
But she's right. I used to always say that he NEVER supported my weight loss, even though he didn't like me fat. But in his own way, I guess he needed me fat so that, in his mind, I wouldn't leave. Besides that, he had an eating buddy in me. It was a no-win no matter how it went down.
