100 lb. Club - Are your significant others at a healthy weight?

Just curious if you and your SO's are two chubby peas in a pod or if you have disparate body types.

My BF has an amazing body (sigh). He works out everyday... buff and toned and sexy.

He is a great resource to have around though because he knows so much about fitness and exercise. I don't have to pay a separate personal trainer! Plus we have really bonded over the working out thing. It is something we like to do together.

No, mine weighs pretty much the same as I do, which makes him a little less overweight than me I guess, but still not a healthy weight.

My boyfriend is overweight. Right now, I weight less than him. ^___^ Since he is significantly older than me and smokes, I really wish he'd try to lose weight. When I met him, he had to walk cause of a neck surgery. He realized he felt better a few pounds off. I keep telling him it'd be so easy for him to lose weight because of genetics. I'm just hoping since there are so many more vegetables in our meals, he will trickle down on his own and then, he'll want it. I mainly worry for his health and I know I gained 30+ of these pounds cause of his cooking. :(

My bf used to weigh 240 when I weighed 260. THen he went on a diet and I Binged. :(

I then weighed 299 when he weighed 190 which is how far he got down before gaining back 35 lbs in the last few months (It may have been the prozac, we're not sure) but he's lost about 10 lbs since starting to diet with me. It's also really easy for him. I HATE IT. lol.

He's doing the daily plate with me though, it makes cooking meals for the two of us and eating out a lot easier without having to see the other one eating yummay fatty foods!

No he's about average maybe. He's 5'11" and about 182 lbs, he fluctuates as well. I've seen him as high 194lb. He's gets a nice buff bod in the winter because of his job too!

My hubby is overweight as well, just not as overweight as me. It's hard to diet with him because he is such a picky eater...he doesn't really like fruits or veggies (unless ketchup is a veg), and loves soda. I used to cater to him and make him a separate meal from me, but I told him that I wasn't going to do it anymore. He has to eat better, and I told him no more soda (but I can't control what he has when I'm not around).

Now that I'm losing, I think it's starting to push him to do more. He's starting small by making his meals smaller. Every little bit helps! :)

Mines a BIT overweight... but not much. He's about 225 but HUGE like giant shoulders, big "wings" (chest muscles that stick out the side).

He does Krav Maga (Israeli combat fighting), yoga and trains with a RCMP officer. He eats what I cook (just more) and watches his snacks. He's trying to drop about 20 lbs and he'll do it.

My husband weighs 150 lbs. He got on the scale to weigh the dog and he said he (not the dog) gained 2 lbs which puts him at 152. I called him a fatty and he laughed at me. It was pretty funny because he is in good shape and rarely ever gains weight. Then this morning I saw him doing squats and then later on today he had carrots instead of his usual snack which is chips and salsa. I said what has gotten in to you. he told me he needed to drop those 2 lbs he gained.

My mind was boggled. I never thought to stay on top of it. I guess when normal people gain weight they keep it in check and drop the unwanted pounds right away. I on the other hand have gained over 125 lbs before I decide to get my weight in check. And I have made a mountain out of a mole hill. It just goes to show you how our minds work differently than theirs when it comes to food.

My husband was slim, trim, and racy when I met him. (I was, too!) He's pretty short (5'7"-ish) and when I met him, he weighed around 170. Now he weighs around 270. He gained all his weight as soon as he retired from the military. I wish he'd lose it because he has other health problems (pre-diabetes, sleep apnea) as a result. Me? I'm really healthy despite the fact that I'm 100+ lbs. overweight. (Seriously. My doctor can't understand how my blood pressure and cholestorol can be so good! :lol: )

What about kids? Our son is 6'1" and weighs about 180. He was a bit chubby when he was a young teen, but then he grew a foot overnight and it all evened out. Our daughter struggles with her weight. She was athletic in high school and kept around 170 lbs. (she's 5'6"), but she messed up her knees so badly that she finally had to quit the middle of her senior year. That coupled with her part time job at an ice cream shop put about 30 lbs. on her in just a few months. She managed to not gain the "freshman 15" in college, though, because she walks about five miles a day just getting to places around campus.

My boyfriend is 5'11" & weights between 125-130. Nothing but raw muscle! Not a ounce of fat anywhere! He's very in shape! But boarderline underweight accourding to BMI standards... I think its just normal for him. He's very healthy.

I can say we are 2 peas in a pod. I am still more overweight than he is, however now I only have him by about 30lbs. I hope showing him that it is not impossible to lose weight he will find it in himself that he can do it too.

My Dh was 150 when we met. I used to be 130. He could fit into my jeans. He was always thinner than me but after a few years he crept up to almost 200lbs and looked 10 months pregnant. He started walking on my treadmill and did p90x a few times and got in the best shape of his life. He stopped doing that about 3 months ago and is getting back into his old ways. So he's starting to look a little pudgy in the middle. But still nice to look at. lol. His problem is that he loves the junk food and take out. Makes me nutts.

My BF is what I always call "long and lean". He's in great shape and, even though he doesn't come out and say it, I think that he gets disappointed in me that it's so hard for me. He's very aware of what he eats and works out almost daily. It all makes him very, very pretty to look at though!

If my husband's metabolism could have a name, it would be "Speed Racer". :devil:
He is 6ft 1inch...and 1/2. He weighs 185 right now. He is LONG. He has a long torso, long arms, long legs...
I have seen him eat $10 worth of Taco Bell by himself, and be hungry again an hour later, yet the scale doesn't move!!!! He just turned 40 on Saturday so I wonder if his metabolism will ever give out!

My late husband was very thin! Never had a weight problem. He loved to eat! The thing is...he also hated fast food. He wanted a proper sit down meal 3 times per day. And one small sweet. Even his snacks were a production and eaten at the table. There was no grab something on the run with him. He loved his food and he made time to enjoy it. I'm trying to learn from his example.

Mine is a healthy weight & works out religiously....he also has a very physical job where he is free climbing a lot (he inspects ships). I was thinner than him until I had my first child (I went from 140 to 210 pounds,ugh) but if it's bothered him he has never shown it.

01-26-2009, 10:12 AM
mine could shave 15 or 20lbs off. He also drinks like 6 beers a day most days....since I am getting control of my weight he is working on his beer consumption...he will drop the weight just from the drop in beer. He was sick a couple of years ago and was not drinking anything he lost 20 lbs.

I will say he could use a bit more fruit and veg...but otherwise he eats pretty well....I just used to eat like 2x or more what he did ya know have way to much pizza and blame it on the kids...lmao...where did it go?..I don't know ....kids musta snagged the last 4 pieces.....whistles....and walks a:devil:way.

Well we are opposites for sure---my husband is 6'5 and if lucky weighs about 155 dripping wet. I think I have only seen him about another 5 lbs heavier in the last 5 years. He is tall, thin, muscular and has tried anything and everything to gain weight. His twin is also the same. I wish I had his metabolism---he doesn't even have to work out. But he is a great supporter--he has seen me at my highest and I have have always been over 200 since we've been together.

the thinnest i've been as an adult was 226. and i ate like a horse, i could eat huge steak and chips with loads of veg and a few pints of beer than 3 hours later eat a roast dinner.

however now i'm very picky about my food i dread putting on a pound even if it is only dead weight of undigested food

My dear sweet SigO is 6' and says he weighs 350#. I am not sure I believe him (my scale only goes up to 300#). He has been overweight since I met him, and stubbornly refuses to adopt any of my healthy advances. He eats a lot, why have one sandwich when you can have two; snacks out of the bag, when I weigh out my pita chips and put them in a bowl; and drinks diet soda by the case while shunning water, or even juice unless it is mixed with alcohol. He won't exercise, although he is happy to rib me about my gym time or exercise DVDs, and will not, (will not!!) go to the trouble of journeling his food choices.
I think he doesn't want to acknowledge what is right in front of him. He has sleep apnea (which he does treat, thank goodness), and high blood pressure and colesteral (which he doesn't). The scary thing is, he isn't 30 yet, and I am scared that if he doesn't make changes for himself, I will loose him far sooner than... well.... sooner than is reasonable.

My hubby is 6'5 and weighs less than I do, but is still on the chubby side. When we met we were both skinny and tall, but I never really watched what I ate, started losing all my sports/excercise and ballooned. He also ballooned, but not as bad as I did. He's not doing my changes with me, in fact he brought home McDonalds the other day :( But I'm hoping eventually he will. While he's not super over weight he has high cholesterol and blood pressure and takes pills for both. But he's also diabetic and really needs to monitor his food better. He did finally quit smoking though, and I think he's waiting until that change is solid before starting something else which I can understand :)

tell him to be careful. My real dad lost both his legs and went blind before his kidneys failed him and he died, from diabetes. dying in pieces, not so fun I imagine.

this is my major motivating factor right now. I'm 29 and SO scared of getting serious weight related health problems.

I dont' mean to sound gloom and doom on you, but my real dad its like, you'd think after he started losing the first few body parts he would have watched, but I Guess he just never did. :(

My ex was underweight (5'11 1/2, a very bony 170) until a couple of years before our divorce. He began putting on weight rapidly--depression--and before he knew it he was over 200.

We both lost weight together in early 2003, then he demanded a divorce out of the blue. Affair. He remarried as soon as the divorce was final and he's kept his off (I have to see him periodically).

We have gained weight together. When we met I was about 115 lbs and he was about 165 lbs (he is 6' 1"). Now I am 197 lbs and he about 230-240. I am hoping that me losing weight and exercising will inspire him. His main problems are that he never exercises, is a heavy smoker and drinks a ton of soda.

My bf is quite overweight at 390 lbs. He's recently joined me in my pursuit of healthiness but prior to that he was a huge binge/emotional eater. He decided that when his weight prohibited him to sleep lying down that it was time to lose weight. In one week, he's already down about 10 lbs (grrrrr).

My fiancee is 6 feet and 190 pounds. So, about 20 pounds overweight.

He has a little bit of a chubby belly, but you can only really tell if he's naked. When we first started dating, I was always asking him if he realized how gorgeous he was compared to me. (lol)

I had a talk with my soon-to-be MIL once, and she told me that he has no idea how good-looking he is...we got into this talk because (please pardon my sounding full of myself) all of his past gf's have been very...homely? I hope that doesn't sound awful. I never mentioned it until his mom, his friends, and he all said something about it.
Having said all that, my fiancee is a "chubby chaser", lol.

My sweet husband of 24 years is in great shape. Sometimes he makes me sick:?:! If he feels like he is gaining he eats a little less and the pounds drop off. He does excercise but the boy eats alot! Part of my trouble is trying to keep up! But he is understanding to me and very supportive so I will stop with the hating!!!

I am worried about him, but he's quit smoking and that's all I can ask of him right now. He's already missing a leg from a car accident when he was a kid and I think that doesn't help. Makes excercise VERY difficult for him. A simple walk around the block can be very painful. If he lost his excess weight it would be much easier for him to get around, but he's just not motivated. I'm hoping that once I start really losing he'll be more inspired to pay better attention to his health. But I can't nag him to death, he has to want to do it. So right now I'm making him eat what I cook for dinner, but I can't control his lunches or when we eat out (he ordered a burger last night called the "Widow Maker" if that tells you anything about its contents :(

My husband is 6 feet and 175 so he's just right. He was with me when I was 310 and was never ashamed or embarassed about me, something I find very sweet because I was ashamed of me! He loves that I am losing weight but he stressed that he loves me the way that I am but I told him that I need to get healthy and beat this weight battle for once and for all which I have every intention of doing. We walk together sometimes and he knew I wanted some weights and we work out together. Between him and my mom they babysit for me while I work out at night and he has always been affectionate. The funny thing is that he has always been with very small, tiny girls! I am his first tall and big girl. I asked him out of curiousity, why me and he said there was just something about me. :p

My Dh is a little overweight now. 15 pounds or so? I think he weighed 190 when we met and was really into weight lifting and was solid muscle. Over the past 10 years he's fluctuated between that and I think a high of 240. For about 5 years now he's been at around 210 and I think he looks great. He's not so single-minded with weight lifting now and has broadened his repertoire and is doing pilates and lots of functional training and weights together with cardio. He's into healthy eating and regular exercise, so he's a great support for me. He's so hot, in every way!:o
Long before I knew him he had been at a high weight of 310. When he told me this I couldn't believe him and thought he was just trying to make me not feel bad!

My husband weighed 173 pounds when we met in college and he just jumped my scale and he weighes ---- 173 pounds, 25 years later. He is around 6' 2" and so is long and lanky. He really can't put on weight if he tries and he is very, very quiet about that because he understands it's a sore point. :p

About 6 years ago, he started having real trouble with his knees (they are hinged a little funky) and had laproscopic surgery on them both. The doctor recommended bike riding as a really good way to build up the muscles around his knees to help support the mildly funky joints. Very shortly after that, we moved to a very bike-friendly community and he now commutes to work by bike every day that it is possible to do so. He also hikes a lot for fun. He has changed his eating some to incorporate more fresh fruits and veggies. In short, he is probably in better health today at 46 than he was when I met him at 21!

Now, if we could only ease him back off the Type-A, workaholic part of his personality......

My DH of 31 years is maybe 10 pounds more than when I met him. He's about 6'2" - 210 lbs. He could lose about 10 pounds. He never really thinks about food like me. He'll get up on a Saturday at 8am and at 3pm say "Gosh, I am getting hungry - I should fix myself something."

He's a smoker, however - and that really worries me.

My DH has always been slim; very slim when I met him: in the 120's; now twenty years later, he is 130 and thinks he needs to lose a few lbs. His doctor said for his height, 135 lb was his low normal so he wanted him to gain weight, but his cholesterol went up and he has to watch those burgers, which we limit now.

He eats much healthier today; all the healthy meals I make him, and he walks a lot. His whole family was and is slim; so it's partly genes, eating well, and keeping active. I'm learning from him ...

PS ~ I spent too much time baking for him and then eating it; so I don't do that anymore. We both eat better now.

I am blessed to have a wonderful wife. She is blessed because she is naturally thin. She says she works at it but it is just normal for her to eat moderately and want to exercise. She has no bad relationship with food at all.
