DEAR DEIDRE: MY husband makes me feel worthless and disgusting because he no longer fancies me.
I am a woman of 51 and since the pandemic, I’ve been working at home and have put on so much weight.
It’s too easy to graze all day, whereas before, I took a sandwich into the office and then waited until dinner.
My husband is 54 and a referee for local clubs at the weekends.
He says he can’t cope with my weight gain and has moved into the spare room.
And I can’t cope without sex. I went online and met someone who fulfils my needs but my husband almost caught me, so I ended things quickly.
I love my husband. He’s my best friend. I just want our sex life and relationship back to how it was.

DEIDRE SAYS: Both you and your husband are unhappy. Please talk to him about how hurt and sad you feel.
You might have put weight on, but we all age and I imagine his looks have changed also.
Remind him you’re the same person and deserve his support rather than intolerance.
If you want to lose weight, that’s great, but do it for yourself.
My support packs End Weight Worries and Relationship MOT will show you where to start.
