Hi fellow marine wife! I know what you are talking about, every time my husband goes away i lose weight.The first time i stopped taking the pill so i really did not know if it was that i changed my eating habits or just not taking the pill but when he came back and i started on the pill i gained weight again. Now i have just decided to stay on the pill (i don't think it is healthy to go on and off) and i had them changed to one that has differnt amounts of hormones depending on the time in your cycle and i am losing weight. I feel they make more sense than having the same percentage all month thru when you really don't need it anyway. As far as the husband goes i am already letting him now that when he comes back the meals served will be quite different. Good luck!
