  Yes…I am self conscious about my weight. Fiance knows that I’m not happy with this. He has made suggestions to help me get this under control. They haven’t been mean suggestions. I will just get angry at times, because it’s something that I have to own. I’m the one that has to make the decision to exercise, eat better, etc. We’ve gotten into arguments because I will tell him that I want him to support me, but then I get angry when he makes suggestions at times. After a few times of riding this ride, I finally said that it was something I needed to own. If he wanted to help, he can ask me, “What can I do to help?”. In turn, I’m going to try to be honest with him. Also, I’m going to try to control my venting to him. Since he’s tried to help me and I have shot down his suggestions, I can’t constantly come down on myself to him. I can’t have it both ways.

  I don’t know if something like this will work for you, but so far, it’s been helpful for us.

Just gently tell him that you were not asking for advice, just a listening ear.  And that it hurts your feelings when you comment on such a sensitive topic for you.

I had acne too. It’s genetics. Not pop. Water helps but get medical help.

I once used a prescription to clear it up when I was younger & i am now a faithful proactive user to keep clear!

I’d probably point out something he doesn’t need to be doing but that’s just me. ; )

Good luck!!
