@christina0225:  Ha ha, no I like it when people ask because they almost look at me like I have this deep secret. In all honesty just healthy eating and lots of regular exercise. That’s it. It doesn’t hurt that I have the will power of an ox.

And I love that quote!

I am so glad I found this thread.  DH was a little bigger than me when we met and married.  Now, he’s losing weight and I’m worried that he is going to be smaller than me sooner or later.  He’s 5’7.  I’m 5’5, 165lbs.  When we married he was 190lbs.  Now the clothes he wore then are too big.  I’d guess he is about 175lbs. now.  I’m an “average” size but I’m concerned that standing next to him, I’ll look larger in comparison.  He keeps telling me not to worry because he has very broad shoulders, carrying his weight on top.  He actually works out to make his arms bigger.  But his bottom half is so TINY!  I do feel a bit self conscious.  I think if he were taller it would be less noticible.

My Fiance is almost exactly a foot taller than me with a great body, I am short 5 ft 1 and weigh 181 🙁 There is no doubt in the worldI am siggnificantly bigger than he is. It makes me really uncomfortable some time but he always tells me he loves my curves and I am activly trying to shed some Lbs 🙂

@ThingsThatShine:  I hear you there!  I’m a bit less than you, around 240 at 5’8″ and he’s somewhere around 160 and two inches taller.  And he’s happy for the same reason as your guy 😉 though he’s a little shy about his preferences.  I’d be a bit self conscious if he didn’t enjoy it so much!  lol

My husband isn’t “smaller” then me. However, I just wanted to chime in. When looking at all the photos, I really don;t even notice the height/weight differences, whos smaller, whos bigger, I just see a bunch of beautiful couples!!!

@Treejewel19:  WOWWW! Congratulations on your success! You look amazing!!  I had never seen someone lose so much weight and do it the natural weight. My mom had gastric by pass and went from 310 to 170. I on the other hand have slowly been gaining weight for no real reason. We eat very, very healthy. But I do not eat very much at all (maybe 2 meals a day if that) and i know that’s not good. But i do admit I don’t get nearly as much excercise as I should be getting. So I think that is a huge part of the problem.

When my Fiance and I got together he was 5’7 140lbs and I was 5’2 180lbs. Now I am 100 lbs heavier after having a baby, trying out many different medications for depression and my chrohns/ulcerative colitis and of course the excercise I am missing. I wen was 250 when i got prego, got t down to 230 the first 6 months of pregnancy and then was 285 when i delivered.

Now we are having a destination wedding in Playa Del Carmen and I am desperately trying to figure out how to lose wieght. He deserves to be with someone beautiful and good looking so I want to be able to give him that (he says he could care less what i look like, he just wants me to be healthy and follow in the foot steps of my very unhealthy parents). I have tried working out and incorpoorating more protien in my diet but I haven’t been able to lose more than 10lbs.

But I have 146 days to get myself together before this wedding so I’m going to punding the pavement this summer walking lol! But yea we have about 150lb weight difference…

Yes Im bigger than my fiance too, and i hate it. Im about 45 maybe 50 lbs heavier and we’re the same height. I know ill never be his weight, and i dont think that would be healthy for me, but id like to not feel large next to him.

  

Edit* This picture doesnt accurately show our weight difference, but its the best i could find right now. usually its much more noticable.

There is an 85 lb difference between me and my Fiance. I don’t like it at all. I feel too manly looking to be seen with him at times. I’m trying to get healthier for our wedding and also for my body’s sake. I want to live a long life and I want to have kids and not have them struggle like I did. I’ve lost 20 lbs thus far. It’s a struggle though. Last week I worked out three times for no less than 30 mins. I was supposed to workout tonight but got caught up in wedding details. I WILL lose at least 30 more lbs before my wedding!!

When we first started dating, Fiance weighed maybe 135 lbs. He is about 6 ft. I weighed in the 190s, and I am 5’5″.

Now, nearly four years later (Anniversary is two weeks from today!), he weighs around 180, and I’m about 245. He is trying to gain weight, and I’m trying to lose it lol.

Yep, my man’s a shortie. I’m 5’5, he’s like..5’4. So short, I rip on him all the time for it. Although I’ll go to the grave insisting we’re the same height, haha. It doesn’t bother me at all, other than that we’re both young looking. (Well, I’m only 21, but he’s 26). We haven’t done engagement pictures yet, but I’ll load up one of us that we took the day we bought our condo. FYI it’s like a crappy myspace picture- we’re just standing in front of a mirror in the spare bathroom.

@mandy102:  I’m sorry! But in that case, I have lost 70lbs. I was about 30 lbs heavier than my fiance when I met him.

Used to be. When we first met I weighed about 200 pounds, him about 190. We both lost about 50 pounds together (so I was always slightly larger).  Then I went on a strict diet and he gained some of his back. I’m now about 25 pound lighter.
