My FI is getting so sick of my comments about my weight and I wish I loved my body as much as he loves it. I am 163cm or 5″4. when we got engaged I weighed 70kg or 154lbs. I now weigh 63kg or 139lb and am only 3kg away from where I used to be. I originally wasn’t trying to lose weight but I am working two jobs that require a lot of a walking and we have been eating a lot healthier and cutting out bread. I now find I am obsessed with weight now I fit back into all my smaller clothes! I was more content bigger even though I was slightly overweight! Does anyone else feel the way I do?

I am feeling you. I’m 5’3″ (161ish cm.) and when I was very thin (58-60kg) I felt very selfconcious and obsessed over my weight… Then our scales broke… I got up to about 68kg. When I stepped on the new scales, I was really shocked! I felt GREAT and thought I looked good too. Now I am working my way back down to about 65kg… But I feel myself getting too caught up again.

I do. I lost 15lbs and even though I always worried, now I obssess over my hips, and squats and waist and collarbones and the food and excercise and my FI is sick of hearing me too. Hugs!

Hrm.. no, the fatter I get the fatter I feel lol..
BUT it sounds like you might be starting to develop and unhealthy obsession with your weight…? If your FI is bothered by it either he’s just being impatient or you’re being obsessive.
What sort of things have you been doing that he considers to be annoying?

Thanks for your comments ladies. I just make general comments that I look fat in this etc I also don’t like seeing myself naked and am conscious of wobbly bits. I feel I am been really selfish because FI loves my body & can’t get enough and I was 75kg or 165lbs when we first got together. I also know that he doesn’t like skinny women. At one stage when I was 17 I weighed 115lbs he saw a photo of that and said I looked so gaunt and looked like I needed a good feed and he isn’t interested in women that tiny. i feel like I need a good slap! I just don’t want fat arms on our wedding day!

OP, I feel ya, I have lost 12 pounds and I am now constantly focused on my mid-section and why my stomach is not flat. It seems crazy to some, but I think so much energy starts going towards physical appearance that it is easy to get carried away.

Kind of but only slightly. I decided to start eating healthier and lost some weight and now I want to keep on losing. I keep on saying to myself that once I get to this certain number I’ll stop but I’m starting to wonder if I wont. Once I hit that number I’m sure I still wont be happy and want to lose more. I don’t really make comments about it though to anyone. I just need to go back to how I use to be and just not care as long as I’m healthy.
