    FAT I got fatt(er) but damn my daughter makes a nice blueberry cheesecake (and a to-die-for malteaser cheesecake) BUT on a plus - the cardiologist says no evidence of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy - MRI supports a conclusion consistent with athletic enlargement (35 years of tri's will do that). So darn it, I'll just have to start training again.

    I'm so sorry to read this Skel. I've been pondering it a few days before deciding today to finally post. I'm not sure of how much value I can add, but I can add my own experience. Far too much of your story was familiar to me. Far too much. I too had been with someone for a number of years, who cheated on me, though I didn't find out for almost two and a half years later, I too decided to stay in the relationship, he also lost his job in his chosen industry, was unemployed for a long time, refused to consider jobs which were not precisely what he wanted, left me holding the bag and him making no contribution, I too lost my ability to be kind and became mean and spoke without thought, I too ended up running out of energy. I found my peace when I finally realised he was a liability and I kicked him out. It was hard to reach that conclusion, mostly on account of the loss I felt for the relationship which I had committed to heart and soul, not to mention legally and financially, but the truth was, he wasn't in it with me anymore (assuming he ever had been which I actually now doubt). I am now in a relationship which really does make me happy, with a man who truly is my partner, who has my back completely and is as committed to this relationship as much as I am. We share similar values and goals, though the execution of same doesn't always align, we are learning to work together. It now also appears it was good for him too. He did end up getting back into the industry he enjoys, he now lives the lifestyle he always wanted to enjoy but being in a committed relationship wasn't consistent with that lifestyle, and he has a girlfriend (and possibly also a child he would have had to have fathered while he was with me, but that is a whole other story) in Asia, which was also what he seemed to have always wanted. Please do what is right for you. Not right for him and not what others expectations might encourage or discourage you to do. This is your life, you only get one, don't waste it being unhappy. Require him to step up and work with you so you can both be happy, or cut yourself loose so you can be happy and at peace.

    I’m about 7kg over weight. Life happens. Stress. Depression. Wife who is an awesome cook. Kids. All your time goes to others. Heaps of reasons people put on weight. It’s working at getting it off that’s the main point. its like saying why do people allow their skin to look like a saddle bag. Why don’t they look after their skin. It’s the largest organ in the body. Yet some look like 20yrs older than they actually are and basically need a good iron. Usually queenslanders

    We gave my Mum one of these last year, mostly made up of our surfing holidays. Mum thought it was the best thing ever. mrs FP gave me a coffee mug with the pic below on it a couple of years ago and I use it every day. People like personal stuff.

    Kids - natural "form". Before our rules of 'sit down', 'stop running', 'be quiet' really affects them...

    Time to ask him to leave. Best to have someone else in the house with you when you tell him and also when he packs his stuff. He's a liability.

    Hugs Skel, wish I had something more constructive to offer. If you ever want a break in Sydney we have a detached room you're welcome to inhabit for a few days. You're a tough little cookie, I'm sure you'll come up with the right direction to move forward.

    Very little given in our house this Xmas, we have decided to focus on experiences instead of things, the kids got a few things, Judd got a guitar as he shows some signs of good music coordination at school, so we found him a good condition secondhand child’s guitar with beginner book and DVD, Azra got some books as she loves reading. They have experienced another two overseas trips this year already and two east coast trips so we figured that was enough. Nik and I got each other nothing, we get enough during the year.

    I feel for you here Skel, especially being on a relatively small island, it’s not like you can just keep driving. I don’t get on with many public sector types as the sense of entitlement is staggering and something I can’t comprehend.. Couple that with it being the graveyard of ambition for most, I can see why he’s lacking motivation to work in the real world. Above all that for mine is the cheating, WTF? C’mon Skel, you deserve better than that. The kid thing is bloody tricky. I was absolutely dead set against that merry go round again but just couldn’t live myself if I didn’t try Mrs FPS sake. PM me if you want some perspective ( I have no idea how old you are? )
