Most of the time, my boyfriend is a sweet, supportive guy. Especially about the weight loss thing, because, well, he’s not really a skinny twiggy either. Although, sometimes, stuff just flies out of his mouth and he’s, shall we say, very lucky I love him. I thought I’d share the good, bad and the ugly, just for a giggle.
The GOOD :
taking a shower together: “I know you’re not fat. You know how I know?”
[ wraps arms around me ]
“See? I can wrap my arms around you and grab my wrist”
Randomly: “You have alot of water weight that’ll be lost quickly, and you aren’t all fat – the reason you weigh so much is because you have a muscle-y base.”
And then there’s the daily compliments of how sexy/cute/hot I am. Which, don’t get me wrong, I’m definitely not knocking. But when stuff like this comes out of his mouth, one has to wonder. Things like, does he have a death wish? Or a subconscious desire to be single?
At the gym: Me [ grumble ] “I’m doing all this work now just so I can gain it back with pregnancy”
Him: “But that weight just melts off”
Me: [ incredulous, murderous look on my face ]
Today, hanging out at his apartment:
Him: “I like that shirt on you. It really pulls you in….makes it look like you have a shape.”
I immediately jumped up and headed for the door, calling him what the result is if you breed a horse and a donkey. He had to chase me and suck it up big time.
And I didn’t let him forget it for the rest of the night “wait a second, I gotta put on the shirt that gives me a shape” “oh, it’s a little hot in here, but I can’t take off the shirt that gives me a shape, because I’ll just be a gelatinous misshapen blob without it.”
I think he’ll be thinking twice before he opens his mouth tomorrow, don’t you? 😉
