    Since living with DH, my weight has gone up and down.  Most of it has been due to health issues.  Some of the weight I gained wasn’t healthy, looking at it alone.  During that period though, I actually started to get over a long term illness, so I don’t look at it as unhealthy that I gained it, I just view it as part of getting healthy and now the next part is to get back down to where I was.

    Only a few, but I’m always up and down. It doesnt have to do  with us living together.

    @greenidlady:  I am 15lbs heavier then I was 3 1/2 years ago when I met DH & he’s 45lbs more. In our single days we were both a LOT more active. DH rode his bike to/from work EVERY day & rode 50-60 miles/day on the weekends & trained for a lot of cycling events. I was a nanny at the time & chased toddlers all day & spent a lot of time at the gym. We enjoy different types of physical activity so we don’t workout together but want to spend all of our time together, so it’s just a matter of finding the right balance. DH has also been promoted at work in the time we’ve been together and has a way more stressful job then he did before so I think that also contributes to his weight gain. Currently I do pilates 2 days/week and yoga 1/week & DH is trying to make time to bike to work instead of drive. Up until we got pregnant I cooked all of the time, mostly healthy meals but right now I’m too tired/sick/lazy to cook so we’ve been eating out a lot. Both of us are maintaining our new weight’s & soon I’ll start gaining some pregnancy lbs.

    We’ve lived together for almost a year and I’ve lost almost 30lbs in that time. he’s gained about 10lbs but he’s been gaining muscle so it’s a good thing!

    We’ve been together for about 7 1/2 years. In that time, I’ve gained over 40lb, lost a lot of that, and then put a load back on… I’m a good 28lb or so heavier than when we met, and two dress sizes larger.

    On the other hand, he’s probably gained 50lb or more. We both like nice food and nice beer, although he eats **** as well, and I don’t. If I’m completely honest though, I only maintained my weight at a nomal BMI by only eating fish, vegetables, and occasionally fruit and meat, and working out for at least 2 hours a day. I now eat and exercise more normally and less obsessively (I used to weigh my food and have charts for protein and vitamin intake), and I’m overweight. I’m trying to reconcile myself to the idea that it might just be my biology.

    Still think DH could lose a few pounds though… even 7lb could make all the difference to his health.

    I gained at least 25 lbs when Fiance and I moved in together over 4 years ago. I got happy fat from romantic nights eating cheese and wine. I have lost all that weight now but it is definitely a danger when you first move in together. The gym is much less exciting than a lovely night in for two.

    My weight goees up and down… I weighted close to 140 a couple of years ago and then went crazy trying to get into shape for our wedding. My ideal weight is 125. I went down to 118 for the wedding… mostly because of excitement/stress. I am now up to a bit over 130 and want to lose about 5lbs in order to feel really great about myself. We are also going to TTC soon and I want to be in good “before baby” shape if that makes any sense.

    I havn’t gained one pound..I have actually lost weight since our wedding which I attribute to the stress of having a wedding and buying a house in th same year lol. We lived together before we got married so we had already established a rountine together for eating and exercising. We never eat take out food and make all of our meals at home since I have a very bad stomache problem. I’m also training for a 5km run so this had probably helped in the weight loss also. I refused to be one of those people who gained weight after marriage as I know 4 girls who got married last year and they have gained 25 pounds each since then!!

    I’ve put on a few pounds since the wedding and feel awful about it.  Before the wedding I was training for 2 half marathons and was doing weights a few days a week, and slimmed down considerably.  My workouts have ceased to exist after the wedding and I admit I have been eating anything and everything I’ve wanted for the last few months.  Its starting to add up and I’m really noticing all definition I had is gone.  With fall coming up I plan on staying indoors on the treadmill or spin bike to work it off…again 🙁

    I’ev gained like 20 pounds. but thats probably due to the fact that I was a starving, nervous about the wedding, on my feet all day at work student prior to the wedding. I have a desk job now, I’m more relaxed and I eat 3 meals a day. I think I’m at a good weight now…..hope it just stays here and doesn’t keep increasing.
