Does your FI/DH know how much you weigh?
Posted 10 June 2009 - 11:17 AM
FI is pretty thin - 34 waist - but he's very vain and feels flabby, we have been majorly slacking with the gym and he's telling me he won't get on a beach this year, and if something doesn't change our beach wedding isn't going to happen. He can be very dramatic at times
I am a size 10. I weigh alot for my 5'4 frame but I fit into the 10 or 29 inch waist in most clothes. Ideally I would like to lose 20 lbs before the wedding. I'd lost 30 right before I met FI, and I've kept off 20 of them. Again, slacking at the gym, and before I met him, I ate a lot of diet bars and shakes, and some salads, since I don't cook. I also had a time 10 years ago when I weighed over 200 lbs and lost 80 on Weigt Watchers. It's a struggle...I really don't want to go back there.
FI cooks a lot...like every night...and there's pasta, and rice, and steak and all sorts of yummy things...and we go out....and part of it is my fault for having no self control and eating way more than I should but that's another thread.
So yesterday he found out we are going to be invited to a pool party in August and he started freaking out (remember - drama king) that he looks horrible and we can't go unless we shape up now...blah blah blah....and then he said
WHEN I COME HOME WE'RE BOTH GETTING ON THE SCALE AND SEEING HOW MUCH WE WEIGH
and I said, I will not be getting on the scale in front of you. You don't need to know that. He got mad.
I tried to explain to him that it's just a number. I've been doing a lot of Pilates so my body is shrinking but I'm not losing pounds.....he doesn't get it...
I don't think it's any of his busines.
I'm never going to be skinny. And I'm never going to be one of those people who go to the gym every day, and never eats anything good like ice cream or french fries. I know I can lose weight eating small portions and working out 3-4 days a week, I just haven't been doing it.
So now we're in a challenge.
Sorry for the kind of rant but I guess I took this very personally.
But I was curious to know how many of you share that number with your significant other

I think you already said it; "its just a number" if you really think that then why not do it? It is just a number.
Plus if you really want to lose weight having your partner do it w/ you can be very encouraging and annoying but probably very successful
