...Sara had personal struggles that had placed her at odds with her husband. She was determined to lose weight — and was frustrated by her husband's lack of encouragement.

In her November online posting, Sara wrote: "In fact, I found one of my 'before' photos (from about 2 months ago) on his laptop — skewed like a funhouse mirror, then a derogatory comment below it. Hurts so much but at the same time I want to work things out."

Sara took comfort in the support she received from others on fitness Web sites, but her husband believed the sites were "scams," she wrote.

"I spoke up last night, but it was frustrating," Sara wrote in November. "I don't want to be disrespectful, but need to share some of the hurt that I am going through. I long for a marriage that is filled with love and encouragement.

"So, I am on this journey alone, at home."
