Default Trying to Stay Positive in the Face of Criticism

So, I have dealt with the ups and downs of my weight my entire life. No news there. I am now trying to lose about 20 pounds. The good news is that I am not nearly as overweight as I was once at 225. The good news is that I became a middle-aged athlete about five years ago when I got into cycling, at the same time I met my current partner. The bad news is that he criticizes my weight which tends to make me feel bad about myself and just want to emotionally eat. This is especially true when he gets into a funk himself (like right now). I am trying to stay positive and make positive changes in my life and relationship with food. Yet, it is hard in the face of his ridicule and criticism.

How supportive are other's partners/spouses? What do you do when he or she is not supportive or is critical?
