FH and I were just standing in the kitchen, talking about some wedding details while he ate a slice of pizza. I got hungry watching him eat so I grabbed a bag of tortilla chips out of the pantry. He was watching me as I opened the bag and grabbed a chip, so I asked him what was up and he said “Is that on the wedding diet?”
I haven’t dieted at all this entire engagement, my dress fits perfectly and I have no concern over it, and I haven’t been eating any different lately (for better or worse) than normal. WHY WOULD YOU SAY THAT?! I obviously lost my appetite and shoved my one, uneaten chip back in the bag while he ate his pizza.
I’m not mad at him, he was just trying to be helpful and he felt super bad when I got upset about it, but it just wasn’t the kind of thought a plus-size bride needs shoved into her head a week before the wedding! Ugh.
This simultaneously makes me want to hit up McDonalds or eat nothing but lettuce until the big day, LOL!

Men are boneheads. I mean, does anyone ever ask the fucking groom if they are on a wedding diet? Anyway, don’t let this bother you. I posted about a whopper my Fiance let out a few months ago that sent me storming out of his house, “Hey Mimi. I can’t understand with all the heavy workouts and dieting you do, how you are not 10 pounds lighter?”

“Honey, I am completely serious when I tell you this. Don’t EVER comment about what I’m eating. If you start to think about commenting, just keep your mouth shut. I know you want to help — believe me when I tell you that the BEST way to help is to zip it.”

Bahahahahahaha! I’m sorry! I know it’s not funny but if my SO said that to me I’d totally have some snippy(but lighthearted) comments for him…. But we joke around a lot, even if it’s a sensitive subject. I’d look him up and down and be like “And you think that greasy pizza in your face is doing anything for your girlish figure?” And then I would start chomping those chips quite loudly!

@acciotoni: Future Mother-In-Law, my mom, Fiance & I were all talking outside the other night. She asked, in Spanish, if my mom was hungry. I translated. My mom said no thank you. I translated. I then said that Fiance & I *were* hungry, however, and were about to cook because we need food! She laughed and said “the dress won’t fit her!” to my mother in Spanish. My jaw damn near dropped, but I collected myself and translated for my mom.
Less than 2 weeks before the wedding, I do NOT have a senes of humor about this!

@acciotoni: pssh, I’d just call him an asshat and ask if that cheese is going to his thighs or his gut, hahah.

I grew up with parents who thought they were the food police so I totally get why this made you upset. Having someone criticise what you eat just makes it 1,000 times worse. I’m still trying to get over my issues with food and the need to hide eating certain things. Not binge eating or anything like that, but it’s not a healthy relationship.

@Jijitattoo: That’s perfect! He’s made “wedding diet” comments maybe 3 times before, and every time I get annoyed/upset, so I don’t know why he keeps thinking it’s something I want to hear LOL. Even if I was dieting, obviously I haven’t forgotten about the dieting, you don’t have to remind me, jeesh!
@seabunny: Hahaha! That sounds like what was running through my head as I sent him out of the room so I could cool off and not smack him, 😉
@mimi123: Ugh! Men are boneheads, agreed!
@michiru4ever: It’s definitely not an enjoyable thing. Luckily, FH doesn’t do it very often, so it’s not a huge deal between us, but it still sucks when you feel like someone is judging what you’re putting in your mouth!
