If anyone knows of any resources I can read about this, I would appreciate it. I know I can't be the only one who has this fear, can I?

When I eat well, start losing weight and feeling better, then I think he feels worse as he sees me doing better. Not enough to change his eating habits mind you, but still I think there is an unspoken issue here. Everytime my weight gets down I end up eating the same SAD as he does and the weight piles right back on (along with migraines, hypertension, etc.)
Definitely some food for thought.

I enjoy the changes to my body, but I panic a bit when someone else notices. It feels safer to be sort of invisible.
