I’m almost fifty pounds heavier than Cam. And we’re the same exact height. Sometimes it definitely bothers me … I think to myself that people are thinking “what’s he doing with that fat cow?” and so far I haven’t liked what I’ve seen in pictures of the two of us.
So … I’m working to change it. That’s the only advice I can give it’s stressing you out … work on it, ya know?

My guy is a little guy and I am probably 40-50 lbs heavier than him. We have been together for almost 11 years and throughout years in all of our picutres together (high school prom, college, etc) you can see how he is losing his hair and me gaining weight. He too is self conscience of how thin, short and bald he is. We both love each other regardless of these traits and my guy says he loves me no matter the size, but i hate having picutres taken of us because when I look back I feel like I am huge compared to him. Not only am I bigger than him but I am also an inch or two taller than him, sometimes I feel like the Jolly green Giant. Anyways glad to know that I’m not the only one who is trying to work on self confidence for the wedding day and all the pictures that will be taken of us.

Girl I am curvier and taller than my fiance!! We used to get jokes all the time, but he really is my other half, I couldnt live without him! Try not to be self concious, as long as you love each other thats all that matters. I think we are going to look ridiculous next to each other in our wedding photos, but thats us, he is short and thin, I’m taller and curvy. Oh well!

I am also bigger then my Fiance, but as far as I can tell the only one that cares is my mom!!! He has that long lean sort of rocker body and I have the short and round body!! You can definately tell in our e-pics but I think it seems natural and also since we have different backgrounds it is reflected in that. After seeing our e-pics the first time I thought OMG I should work out but everyday when I come home and my Fiance hugs me I know he loves me just the way I am.

My FH and I are both tall (I’m 5’11” and he’s 6’5″) but sadly I weigh like 40lbs more than him (boo). He’s not incapable of gaining weight but he is a skinny bastard and goes to the gym more than me (he also works way less than I do and I eat like crap because I’ve been on the road a lot for work and I don’t have time to work out). It’s never bothered me one bit that I’m a little bigger than him – the height makes it work out just fine. But I hope to lose 15-20lbs and get back in shape again for our wedding. I want to be a little closer to his width than my current width 😉

I’m chubbier than my fi. On one of my first dates with him he admitted that he was more into plus size ladies ^_^ So he digs it so thats all that matters ^_^

I’m about 20lbs less than my fiance but I’m also about 7 inches shorter lol. In pictures it doesn’t look soooooooooo bad. But he is certainly a stick. It makes me jealous because he eats what he wants and never even looks at a gym. I feel like I starve myself, kill myself at the gym and get no where lol. But he loves me for me

Mr. Star is about half an inch taller than I am, but I outweigh him by 20 pounds. It used to bother me, but now I’m over it. We both love how the other looks and that’s all that matters!

i just saw this thread, and i am right there with you. except, i probably think about this way more than i should. i’m definitely a good 50 pounds heavier than fi. he’s very, very thin, and only a few inches taller than me. i’m not obese, but i feel like i look it when i stand next to him. i love his body, and he loves mine, but i often feel disproportionate and self conscious. it’s a constant battle, but i’m working on it!
sweetheartdealer- it’s funnyy, ’cause we look almost the same as you guys from behind! 🙂

Mr.Birdy Boy and I are both chubbies, but he’s been loosing weight (since we bought our first home, he’s been doing alot of yard work and such) and I’m not liking it. I love all his juicyness….(i squeeze him and say “mr.juicy!” i love it and i dont want it to go away. Plus even thought i have through the roof great self confidance and self esteem i would feel a little strange with a slimmer guy b/c i’ve always dated bigger ones. Chubbies make the best snuggly partners!

The picture of you guys walking together is gorgeous – and honestly, proportion-wise, you guys could be me and my Fiance. 😀

I love this thread! Can’t believe I haven’t come across it before now. My Fiance is at least 50 lbs lighter than I am, though he’s 3 inches taller. My weight has been a constant life struggle, and he’s naturally thin (a size 29 waist!). My excess weight is on my mind all the time, but I try to not let our size difference get in the way of our happiness. I turn to him at times for some encouragement to help me work out/stick to my healthy eating lifestyle, but I admit that sometimes I mistake his encouragement for a dislike of my body. I know in the back of my mind that he’s only encouraging me because I want the help, but it’s hard to not let my insecurities overshadow it. This thread is awesome because it’s great to have some comraderie on this! You all look wonderful with your FIs/SOs. It’s so nice to see others in the same situation!
