Does DH/SO know your weight?

Yes, he does. I have a condition that makes it difficult to gain weight so I’m always letting him know when I gain/lose since it’s usually a direct correlation with my overall health.


I do not know his weight, but he is in the process of losing weight via exercise and diet changes.

Yes my Darling Husband knows my weight. I’ve recently lost weight so when I went onto the dr today & stood on the scale I snapped a pic & sent it to him. But…he also knew his much I weighed at my heaviest too

My FH and I actually have the same nutritionist and have gone to meetings together. I need to gain weight and he needs to lose so we are each other’s accountability partners and we celebrate whenever I gain or he loses.

I don’t hide it but I don’t tell him every day. We weigh ourselves on the same scale and it always shows the last number when you turn it back on. So I’m sure he sees my weight all the time. Once in a while I’ll tell him if I’m really excited about it.

hes probably the first person in my life who knows when I gain or lose, since he sees me naked all the time. If your SO sees you naked, they could probably guess your weight. Not telling them doesn’t change what the scale says, so why hide it? 

Darling Husband does see the physical report I get from the doctor each year and I see his. I think being healthy is an important part of life. since poor health affects both spouses, we are very upfront and accountable to each other on any health issues.

I mean, he sees me naked, so at that point what difference does the number matter?

I mean honestly he probably has a better idea of what I look like naked than I do. But still sometimes I feel a little shy- totally irrational I know. We’ve been losing weight together lately and we send each other our weight graph results, so he definitely knows now.

My weight isn’t something we talk about, but if he asked, I’d tell him. Plus, he could easily look at the weight listed on my driver’s license if he wanted.

He knows, only because I was weighing myself and he looked. I’m okay with him looking, as long as he is still heavier than me tongue-out

nope, he does not. He’s skinny, and I am fat. I hate the number on the scale; he says he does not care but I DO!

MrsWolfaith :  We both share our weights with each other on a regular basis, as well as our latest fitness goals we’ve reached (how far we’ve walked, how much we’ve worked out/lifted, etc.) and how we feel we’ve done with eating/consuming (alcohol). However, niether of us is plus sized or larger sized (whichever is the correct terminology, no offence intedend). I don’t think it’s a mandatory thing to share your weight at all, whatever works best for you is good. For us sharing this stuff is motivating, if it’s not, skip it.

MrsWolfaith :  my Darling Husband knows cos we use a fertility app to keep track of when my period is so he gets the “heads up” re my pms and he accidentally saw it while I was logging… but he pretends he doesnt know and doesnt say anything about it because he knows how anxious I am about my weight. I find that so sweet and caring. I actually put on about 30 pounds since I met him and he says “i cant tell you are still very hot and beautiful to me”. But he gently encourages me to exercise because he knows how it hurts my confidence and also for my health.

MrsWolfaith :  he didn’t for years but we joined a gym together so he found out my weight at he same as I found out his. 

I put on loads of weight in the beginning of our relationship I realised I had to do something when I realised I was avoiding looking at myself in front of a mirror from the neck down. I’ve lost a significant amount of weight so I’m now slightly plus size but comfortable in my skin. I am now also OK with people knowing my weight. My husband has only ever been supportive and accepted my size at any weight. 

I’m sure your hubby  is the same as mine and won’t really care what the numbers on the scale read. Just tell him.
