I was wondering if anyone is embarassed for their spouse/ significant other? This is pretty pathetic, I know, for me to be embarassed for my husband, relating to my weight.
I was doing ww to get to 135 lb goal weight by this May for a very special graduation for my DH from a master's program. I will be meeting all his classmates he's been with for the past three years. Well, we found out we are expecting back in Sep of '09 and I'm due one week before this big graduation. Not only am I not at the goal weight but I not even close to my usual weight. I would have felt uncomfortable at my usual weight, now I'm just embarassed for DH. Plus the baby belly will likely be gone, so I don't even have that obviously visable exuse. Just a saggy tummy.
So I actually feel embarassed that DH has to introduce me to his classmates as his wife. Also, he is graduating a medical program and I'm an RN so its two fold because I'm supposed to know how unhealthy being over weight is and I've seen class photos and no one in his 40 person class is over weight except DH.
Dh has never made me feel bad about my weight and still tells me how great I look, but I feel embarassed that he has to bring me to the graduation being over weight and everything still loosy goosy in my belly from having a baby, especially because he has a class full of very fit, atheltic, healthy, young people.
I don't feel embarassed for myself, just for DH. Does that make sense?
Has anyone else ever felt this way?
