I’m just curious to see if this is a common thing or not.
Ive always been kinda self conscious of my weight even though I feel like I carry it well. (Doesnt every girl tell herself that? 😉)
I’ve never told DH my weight because there is no reason for him to know.lol We are currently going through infertility right now though, so we go to the doctor all the time and of course every appointment starts with that dreaded walk to the scale. Usually I make sure DH isn’t looking even though I know he would never say a word. He truly loves every bit of me. I know it won’t change how he feels about me obviously, and it is my issue, not his. I am just so tired of feeling anxious when I get on the scale in front of him so I am thinking of just telling him my weight and getting it over with.
Have any other bees felt this? Does he/she know your weight? Are you self conscious about it?
Also, I am not one of those ladies who weighs a 100 pounds soaking wet and thinks they’re big.lol I am a plus size woman and I usually wear 16/18 clothing.

I’m a plus size and am much larger than your size and my husband has been told my general weight just from medical forms he’s needed to fill out over the years- the kicker? Every time he’s filled out a form he has to double check with me because he can never remember! lol he always things it’s much lower than it is- gotta love that man!

I’m also curvy and my DH doesn’t know my weight. I’m pregnant now so even more self conscious about it lol… I make DH look away when we’re at my Dr together and ask them not to say it out. I’m just open with him about not wanting him to know and he’s cool with that.

No lol. He tells me his all the time (we’re losing weight together for the wedding), but I havent told him mine. It makes me self concious because I’m only like 10 lbs less than him lol. I honestly dont think he’d care. He knows my goal weight. Just not how far I am from it lol

He tells me his all the time…but he doesn’t know mine. I wouldn’t be moritifed if he knew (i’m plus size so DUH I don’t weight a hundred pounds) but I don’t just go blurting it out lol.

He knows my weight just because the scale is in the bathroom and I’ve used it in front of him, but he has never come out and ask. I don’t have a problem with him knowing the exact number, he has seen me naked and is always happy enough lol!! I used to get somewhat self conscious about it, until I accepted the fact that he’s seen me naked/bathing suit/shorts/whatever and could honestly guestimate my weight anyway if he really cared to. I’m sure we think about it way more than our husband’s ever would.
I’m sure he wouldn’t think twice about the number on the scale, but if you don’t feel comfortable sharing the exact number then I think it’s fair that you don’t!

DH can mind his own business I’m actually a lifetime member of Weight Watchers so I’ve been bigger than I am now but big or at goal weight aint’ no way no how I’m sharing this with him.

SO doesn’t know my weight, though only because I can’t imagine a time when it would come up. It wouldn’t ever bother me if he knew.

yes and i don’t care if he knows. we went through IVF too for DS and my current pregnancy, i only got weighed once at the beginning of each treatment cycle. now i get weighed every time at OB appointments.
DH is a big guy and i have known his exact when he is working on losing weight but i know roughly what it is now.
if i was overweight, i probably would care.

I’m as open about my weight as I am about my height. I will answer truthfully to anyone that asks either. I don’t consider myself slender nor plus sized.
Fiance and I are open to each other because we usually fluctuate the same way…If we have been eating out a lot and/or not hitting the gym as much, we both gain weight. And vice versa.

I had never told him. He barely was allowed to know my pants size lol! I accidentally blurted it out once and he didn’t believe me and was also super surprised that I had finally told him since it had been hush hush since we started dating. This was after I had lost 50lbs so I was very happy with the number. If he had found out before back when I weighed nearly what he weighs I would’ve died of embarrassment and shame.

Yeah he does. It’s not really a point of conversation tho

Fiance is also my personal trainer so he gets an update on my weight on a bi-weekly basis lol.

I’ve been trying to lose weight for when we TTC next year. He’s knows my weight because I like to tell him when I reach each of my goals and he’s also my support when I’m struggling. So, yes, my husband knows my weight.

Ehh he has heard it from time to time (though I’ve fluctuated by about 20lbs a couple of times since we’ve been together, not counting my pregnancies). I would prefer he not know lol but I can’t exactly explain why, he knows my body inside and out and has watched me grow and give birth to our two children…it’s just one of those things I want to remain a mystery to him 😊.
