Today’s OPP is from Candy and she needs your help! Here’s what she said:



Over the last year or so I’ve put on a lot of weight—about 55 pounds. I was going through a tough time and stopped caring and really let myself go. It caused a lot of fights with my husband but I guess he finally snapped and recently told me he wants a divorce. That was kind of a wake-up call for me and made me realize that I needed to take better care of myself. But it also made me realize that my husband didn’t really mean it when he said “For better, for worse.” He’s ready to throw away the 9 years we have together because I had a bad year. At first I wanted to turn this around and get back in shape to save my marriage, but now I’m not so sure it’s worth saving if he doesn’t love me for me. I’m so torn. What do I do? Let my husband walk out because he’s not happy with my weight, or try to get back to where I was to save it? -Candy
