You seem to be around 110, not 140. Stay at whatever size you feel best, but I don’t see how you weigh 140 pounds.

You pretty much look exactly like me, I’m just an inch taller…

Sorry they’re giving you crap πŸ™ I’ve had my fair share of comments too, but never from family. I am healthy, and you are healthy. You are ideal for your height. I hate to say it, but I feel like the people who make the comments are always heavier(and in my case, always unhealthy people) and it’s just a show of jealousy? I don’t know..it’s the only thing that could possibly make sense. You’re beautiful!! Don’t forget it.

With your immediate family I’d probably be upfront and tell them it bothers you, as well as point oit that they wouldn’t enjoy their weight being harped on.

 

With the in laws I might try to make jokes like “bulemia? Haha, no! Just a lot of healthy eating!” With them you might need to let it go. They sound rude. Maybe have your FI talk to them.

I agree you look much smaller than 140, but muscle weighs more than fat so I assume you just have a muscler build! Your not underweight so you don’t need to gain weight, but I think you’d look great even if you did gain 10lbs!

As for family, I would just tell your family you’re comfortable with how you are and don’t want to change. I don’t think your weight would ever be a cause for infertility. 

As for your fiance’s family, maybe tell him that it really bothers you when his mom says stuff like that. Especially since those are very serious dieases to be accused of. I would have him talk with them and while you don’t mind a little teasing, taking it that far is not needed.

I don’t think that you look smaller than 135-140 like PPs said, actually… you are thin, but that is slim for someone your height (and you look great, by the way);

You weigh about the same as me but look thinner, and I’m 3 inches shorter. And I’m a little bit thinner than average myself… so… I think you look right. Its funny, because people also think that I’m “like 110lbs”… If I weighed 110lbs I would look like I was deathly thin (I looked pretty bad at 115), so you do not look like 110 at 5’6″…

 

I think you look great. Unfortunately, when people struggle with weight issues themselves (even if it doesn’t seem that way) I think that many times they assume that the only way someone could be so thin is by not eating. Just know that you are healthy and don’t let people bring you down. You’re doing the right thing.

And good luck with TTC’ing. =) I don’t think your weight is an issue.

you look FABULOUS!! Don’t let the haters in your life get you down with their own jealous insecurities. It’s hard when it comes from those who are supposed to be your supporters and / role models but just remember to not take it personal and continue to live your life the way that makes you feel and look your healthiest. I’m the same weight as you and 5’7 – my weight fluctuates between 130 – 135 and I look far from unhealthy, more like fit,healthy and athletic. If anybody said to me what your mom and sister says to you I would  laugh and tell them their nuts.

@SnurfMurph86:  Wasn’t saying you were! Just correcting because I think that people have misconceptions about weight.

Really don’t listen to them… They are jealous and insecure. You have a fab figure. You are slim but if you are eating healthily and enough then you know you are fine! I had exactly the same problem and I just had to ignore. I’m 125 but only 5’3″. I certainly don’t think I look like I’m fading away!!
