Does DH/SO know your weight?

We don’t have scales in our house, I have made a point of not weighing myself since recovering from an eating disorder in my early twenties. The only time Darling Husband and I both knew how much I weighed was in hospital when I had to be weighed for anaesthesia dosing. Neither of us focus on our weight, we just try to make healthy choices.

Give or take about 5 pounds. But we both lift, so a lot of our lifts are compared to percentages of body weight so it’s just a thing. Honestly, i tend to be skinnier at 150 than 140..because much weighs more than fat.

I was 113 lbs when I met my husband (healthy weight, 5’4″) and I’m now 215 lbs.  He knows my weight, I tell him, and he tells me his.  Him knowing my weight is not going to change it, and he loves me at any weight.

My current SO knows my weight. It took a year, but I did eventually feel comfortable enough to tell him, which is a pretty big step for me–I never told my ex husb, and we were together for 12 years. However, our weight really only coming up in coversation lately because we both want to lose weight for our wedding and honeymoon next year. We fell victim to the “happy relationship weight gain”

I weigh in the 120s, and have never fluxuated much from my wedding weight – maybe 5 lbs? In addition, I workout a lot so I don’t think the number means anything, just the way I look and feel. I’ve been lower weight than now and flabbier.

that said – HELL NO! He can mind his business, as another poster said.

My husband knows my weight, give or take 5 pounds or so (I fluctuate so much). Heck his whole family knows it because they all like to ask what size I wear for some random reason (like oh, what size was your wedding dress!). I feel like I can be comfortable letting my Darling Husband know what I weigh and I am and always have been extremely self conscienced of it.

Yeah I don’t care if he knows. I complain to him when I ate too much and gained a few pounds. I recently hit my “all time high” and was pretty down about it. (He doesn’t care). I’m up 15 lbs since we met and would like to get it off, so I excitedly tell him when I’ve lost a few! I know his, but he fluctuates way more than I do!

Mine knows, but that’s because he’s mentioned his weight before and I sourly said it was the same as mine and he carries it better.

Yes. Didn’t think anything of it, and I’m on the heavy side (size10/12…at least I think I’m heavy). I think you should be comfortable with your SO knowing everything/anything about you.

Despite the fact that I have 20/25 pounds on him 😂

Fiance knows my weight. I mean, he’s seen me naked, so cat’s out of the bag. The number associated with my various rolls and stretch marks is sort of irrelevant.

MrsWolfaith :  Good for you! It sounds like you have a great guy 🙂 Glad you’re feeling better about things.

I think my fiancé would know my weight within about 5 lbs. That’s probably about as close as I know my own weight, actually. I don’t weigh myself more than maybe once a month.

He’s been dealing with an injury lately and has lost quite a bit of weight because he hasn’t been able to do any of his usual physical activity and his appetite has gone way down (and i think he’s lost a lot of muscle mass) so HIS weight has been a really constant topic of conversation since I’m worried that he’s wasting away. I probably know his weight within 2-3 lbs these days.

I don’t care to know his and I wouldn’t tell him mine even if he asked. I don’t think it’s necessary.

We both know one another’s weight.

Im not self conscious about it though. I’m less underweight than I was when we first met. He knew I had certain weight goals which I’ve reached recently and been maintaining.
