I think the biggest issue here is that you were feeling good about yourself and his comments made you second guess that. If YOU like you at 140, then stick with what you’re doing. Go for walks with your man of it suits you, but don’t let anyone, not even your husband, make you feel like you’re not enough exactly as you are.

I wanted to add that the thing with people worrying about him not accepting your body after you did is that you even said that you HAVEN’T been accepting your body and this is a recent change. So if this is something he has been observing, he may have been working up the nerve and/or figuring out how best to approach it and not realized that you have shifted your thinking. It’s still a valid topic.

MrsBeck :  you aren’t alone. If its not weight that us ladies deal with, its skin, or hair, or for some – skin tone/color. I use to think “I am wayyy too dark skinned this summer” and I’d feel very self conscious, or if his family visits I feel self conscious if I have a break out or a scab on my face from picking. 

I hear you. Weight is one of those things that don’t “heal up” in a week or two. It takes time and hard work and you should know that your guy loves you very much but obviously knowing its possible for you to be a 130 or 125 may make him want to see a “healthier” version of you. 

I’m 5’5.5″, i weigh 100 lbs on good days lol, but usually i am just under 100. I always feel like i am “too skinny” but gaining weight is tough for me. My Fiance has pointed out that I look nicer when I’m 100+ lbs so I don’t take it to heart and just work on it. 

Men and women both face insecurities, but he is your best friend and I’m sure he means it out of love. My guy ALWAYS worries that HE is too skinny lol.
