yeah...that's my only complaint too - and the thing is - he's ALWAYS tellingme he doesn't care - he loves me for me and not my weight - yet at the same time, he's very supportive of me wanting to watch/maintain my weight loss - but he's not pushy about it at all. He makes very healthy dinners for us (yeah, he loves cooking and cooks most of the time) and we both shop for the same types of groceries...and he asks me if i went to the gym after work - but he doesn't PUSH it either - he never makes me feel guilty for not going and always says supportive things when i DO go (he tries to go a few times a week himself) - and if i DO eat something bad for me - or we decide to both splurge on something - he's NOT "oh you shouldn't eat that"...he's - it'll be fine - we'll just do better tomorrow. it's as if we both have the same issues/philosophy when it comes to our weight. we've both even lost about the same amount of weight in the past (i lost 60 - he lost 50) and yeah - we both have things about ourselves that we don't like - yet i love every inch of him...even though he's got a smaller pant size than me - he has a "beer gut" that is a bit of a "hangover" but i love it! lol (btw, i wear a size 12 in women's - he wears about the equivalent to a 9/10)
and yeah...it's that second statement you made - we just don't know how to value ourselves...which i've always found strange - due to the fact that i come from a very loving home - my parents have been married for almost 35 years - always VERY supportive...yet it's more the outer social stuff (school, friends, ex's, crappy jobs, etc...) that's always made me feel "not worthy"
Even though I went to college - got my degree - got a FANTASTIC job.
but why is it SOOO hard to accept the GOOD things in life?
