    uggh! Yes!!   I had lost like 35-40 lbs before I met Fiance. The we meet fall in love and I move to Louisiana.. and gain it all back!! So now Im back up to like 221lbs and I just want to get back down to like 175/180.

    It happens every time I get into a new relationship though. lol

    Yes and yes! I read somewhere that for every long term relationship a woman puts on an average of 15 pounds, yikes! It happens. We get content and feel secure and stop worrying about those extra pounds/calories and inches.

    While I have never tiny but always athletic I gained quite a bit of weight in college due to the studying and eating at random times without time for exercise. I left college a size 18 (was a 14 when I started) and quickly shot up to a size 22/24 while with my Fiance. I was happy, I was loved, he thought I was beautiful so why bother with proper nutrition and exercise right? I did feel beautiful despite the weight and he loved me for me just as I was.

    I will say that for health reasons and the fact that I could no longer do the things I love I ended up changing my lifestyle and lost 120 pounds, which I’m sure he appreciates as well. It is easy to fall back into the security mode of thinking but I had to make the changes for myself alone.

    Fiance and I are both guilty of gaining ‘happy’ weight. I can chalk some of mine (50+) up to pregnancy, and general life reasons, too, though. We met when I was 18 (him 21), and I was actually battling anorexia/bulemia. Obviously once I got that under control, I started gaining weight back, and then with the pregnancy it went from there..
    Fiance on-the-other-hand has probably gained close to 100lbs since we met. He was scrawny all through high school (6′, and 140-ish), but once college hit, he started gaining. I chalk most of his up to a busy, busy lifestyle; working, etc. Plus, he’s a chef by trade, so he’s always sampling, and never eats properly. Lots of takeout, or quick meals for him.

    For the record. A lot changed in my life causing to to be less active and more dependant on whatever cheap food I could fine. College = Freshman 15, no time for sports, no more marching band (which can seriously kick your butt! People think it is just walking around, Its NOT!) more time sitting and studying in class or in my dorm, and my college jobs required me to sit. Also I moved out of my parents home and as cheap as Ramin and the Dollar Menu are, they are NOT good for you one bit. Mr. Hedgie had all the same problems. So we both gained this stupid weight together.

    I met my Fiance in high school so I was smaller then..but I don’t think my 20lb weight gain is because of him… it’s just because I’ve become a woman. well…maybe 5 or so lbs would be because of him haha.

    we have noticed (after not paying attention for a year) that we have actually lost weight since we have moved in together. i was looking at pictures of us at a gathering from last year and then at pictures from the latest harry potter movie and was like “OMG, we are totally smaller now.”

    my parents were visiting today and also noticed it in both of us. 

    two reasons for this that i am just guessing about. i want to be susie home-maker so i do alot of from-scratch cooking… so not as much instant microwave crap we used to eat when there was nobody to cook for. and also we are on a third floor apartment with no elevator so we get alot of exercise whether we want to or not.

    This is so unfortunate.  I also gained weight after Fiance and I got together.  Moreso around the time he proposed as well.  I’m so depressed and bothered by it.  I had lost a bit of weight before meeting him and our first year of dating.  Grrrr.

    I actually lost a lot of weight because we completely stopped eating out to save money for the wedding- haha. But now that the wedding is over and we don’t have the extra expenses, I may be watching it pile back on… haha.

    @brideatbeach: I can actually see us losing weight once we’re on our own and we have to pinch pennies to really survive.

    @Rouquine: Yeah, that was totally it. We had both just graduated from college when we moved in together and were working random part-time gigs while trying to find full-time positions. Now that we both have “real” jobs and aren’t paying for a wedding, we need to be careful and keep using our apartment complex’s exercise center! lol

    I think I have actually lost a few lbs in the 2 years that Fiance and I have been together. When we started dating, he ate fast food almost every single day. He doesn’t have a kitchen, only a fridge (long story) so he just ate fast food all the time. I managed to get him awy from it thank God. Because 1) eating out everyday is ridiculously expensive and 2) it’s just bad for you. He also haden’t gone to the gym in quite some time when we started dating. Now he goes all the time. We also play dodgeball twice a week and go hiking or play other sports for fun. I would much rather do something active then go out to dinner. We can make something healthy at home and save money and calories. Plus doing something active is way more fun 🙂
