From Diet Blog Share:

I’ve been married for 4 years to a wonderful, loving man. While I have maintained my weight at a very reasonable 110 lbs since we’ve been married, my husband has gained 25-30 lbs since then, and has basically “let himself go.” He keeps telling me that I am too skinny and should gain weight. I’m not sure if he’s telling me that because he feels inferior to me physically, or if he really thinks I’m underweight.

The problem is, we both come from families where pretty much all the women are obese, so the definition of “normal sized” is very skewed. Both my mom and my MIL think that a “good, healthy weight” is something like 140 lbs.

Here’s the thing, I used to weigh close to 200 lbs, and while I was losing people in my family kept telling me not to lose too much weight, etc. Now that I am thin and at the point where I actually like my body, I am being told by my husband he thinks I’d be “hotter’ if I was fatter.

I don’t really get it! Should I be worried about what he’s saying? Should I give in and gain some weight so HE’LL be happy? It’s so frustrating… any ideas or thoughts?
