Getting ready to wean

I'm an EP for nearly 15 weeks and really need to start weaning. For the first 10 weeks I pumped 8-9x a day, then dropped to 7x a day. For the past 10 days I've pumped 6x a day. For me getting mentally prepared to quit is really difficult. I'm quitting because it truly has impacted my marriage in a negative way and I'm very uncomfortable. Most notably, my breast have increased by 6 cup sizes and I wasn't small to begin with. For those that managed to significantly reduce then retire - how did you mentally prepare yourself? I can't put my arms around why I can't do this mentally.

I am sorry that I can't give tons of advice about weaning - since I am not in that boat yet... but I can relate to other parts of your post.
