I gained like 20 lbs and I was not happy. I am now down 6 lbs than I was when I started dating him but I am one size bigger.

The pic on the left is from 08; my heaviest. (gross!) The pic on the right is form a few days ago. I am so happy that I am able to be healthy again. I am still working on my shape.

I think I put on 10 pounds and have since lost 9. We had a lot of late night snacking and I liked vodka a lot, but we have cut both out (except the occasional snack) and I went on meds that slashed my appetite, so I lost weight.

I gained 20 lbs and have shed about 5 or so so I still have quite a ways to go!

I have always struggled with my weight.  So, when I started dating my fiance’, I had lost 30 pounds using weight watchers and had kept it off for over a year.  Then I moved cross to country to be with him.  It was a combination of absolute exhilaration and stress all wrapped into one.  So, over the first year together, I had gained over 20lbs back.  He had gained about 10.  No excuses….we just did.  About 4 months before I turned 40, I decided I needed to make some permanent lifestyle changes.  I cut out diet soda and tried to reduce how much processed food we eat.  We started exercising more by running and bike riding.  I have now lost 25lbs.  I am hoping to lose 20 more before I go dress shopping in February.  I am fortunate the we are on the same page and our each other’s support system!

I gained about 20 pounds since being with him.  I think when you are happy you just tend to eat!  I’ve started my workout program, so I’m hoping that number will start to return to normal soon.  🙂

Oh boy, my Fiance and I met our freshman year of college, so we were in quite good shape being broke and not being able to eat well LOL.  By graduation, we were a bit more shapely, and by our first year out of college – working and bad eating habits – we’d both put on at least 10 lbs. We realized it was out of hand when we saw ourselves in photos – yikes.  

We’ve worked it off like crazy, though, and are pretty much back to our freshman selves again… I’ve kept a few lbs. of comfort weight, but happy overall:)

I lost weight! I have always finished everything on my plate, not I just give it to him! I’m so excited! About 20 lbs so far! I really love having him around, I love to cook and now I don’t end up eating all of it!

I hadn’t gained more than maybe 5lbs before I got pregnant now I still have about 20lbs to lose before I’m at pre-pregnancy weight. I hate feeling fat! There are a lot of people that are suprised that I’ve had a kid though because I’m back to my normal size just a little heavier.
