I too remarried in my late 40's. I was thin, and hadn't had sex for years. My sex life with my new husband was awesome. But then in the summer of 2006, one year before we got married, the weight gain started. It came on so fast I couldn't afford to keep replacing my clothes. I started wearing my fiance's shirts...to work!!! Within 6 months I gained 40-50 lbs.!!! I was this fat person in my wedding dress. My husband was so supportive. I went into a deep depression. We both lost our fathers that year. I began to lose my libido fairly quickly. I finally got on Prempro, and on the right dosage. It has helped, but my weight is still in the way. You know, this may sound silly - but I found out how differently overweight women are treated. It's been a real learning experience. I feel invisible. I have not been happy with myself since.
