I think all girls have the same problem.  Guys eat more than us.  I really have to take a step back when he is eating something that I want to think if I am really hungry.  Just because he is eating doesn’t mean that you have to (though we sometimes feel like it because it is a bonding experience).

you could work out with some girls instead of your SO. That could help and like what MissAsB said watch what you eat, and try to get him to eat a lil healthier.

If you live together, you can ban all bad foods from the house.  That’s what I did.  I told him he’s welcome to eat what he’d like on his own time, but I can’t have the unhealthy stuff around me.  He was totally ok with it, he even enjoys some of the healthy meals I make.  And this probably isn’t the best approach, but I just think of upcoming events to motivate me.  Obviously the wedding is doing wonders, I’m more disciplined now than ever before.  But even little things, like a friends birthday party or a family bbq or vacation.  These are things that keep me on the right path.

Totally counter-intuitively.  I threw out the scale and starting finding ways I enjoy working out.  Now it’s my me time and my stress release – if he wants to join me that’s great, but he knows that I tend to zone in.   Also – I do a lot of strength training which has given me a serious appetite – I often eat more than he does just because I’m hungrier.  MissAB is right that it’s important to eat the amount that is right for you and the foods that make you feel good, rather than just doing what he’s doing.
