I see the girl in your picture. I'm going to assume that is your daughter. How would you feel if your daughter (or whoever that girl is) came home just bawling her eyes out because her boyfriend told her that he can't be seen with her because she is too fat? You would be VERY pissed off! Now stfu and keep your shitty advice to yourself!!!
People need to stop being such sissies! If your fat (forget pc "overweight"), do something besides crying that people say hurtful things. Sitting on FML or Facebook shoveling McDonald's down your throat is your own fault! Man up and deal with it! Im 6'1" 195lbs, but have that gut showing up. Instead of me looking for sympathy, I'm getting a exercise bike and going to start to do something about it!
I'm not surprised a comment saying she probably doesn't need to lose weight and OP wants a supermodel got thumbed up. Is this some defense mechanism certain women use? Stop living in denial. She has to be fat for OP to have said that, and while I disagree with how he chose to tell her, I fear that there really are stupid, fat women convincing themselves they aren't fat and anyone at a healthy weight is supermodel skinny and must be bashed. Proceed with thumbing me down since I've essentially called you lot a bunch of stupid, delusional fatties with a skewed perception in your favor.
I wish my ex-husband had told me when I got fat. Instead he just let me walk around at an unhealthy weight in clothes that were too small. Once I weighed myself and realized that there was a problem, I fixed it. 25 lbs and one husband less, I'm happier and back to feeling good about myself.
This is exactly what I'm talking about. Stop speaking for the male population. Lauren Alaina does not look 1000x better with the extra 25 lbs on her. If you read about her weight loss you'd know that she's been working out at a gym and eating healthy. News flash, the weight loss is a result from being healthy. I'll just be blunt. She looked chubby before. Now she's eating healthier and working out. And now she looks better. Quit the bashing on healthy sized people. It's annoying women like you who make it a disgrace to be attractive.
In regards to Lauren Alaina: I've seen pictures of her before and after she lost weight. I see nothing wrong with either; she looks good either way. That said, some people don't pull off the skeletal look very well so they end up looking better with a little more weight (read: a healthy weight/pounds, not being overweight... yadda yadda). The same goes for the other way. Also, I'm not saying anyone who's losing weight will look skeletal. I know they don't all look that way. The way Lauren lost her weight is wonderful and even admirable but I personally don't think it's necessary. But then again one person's cup of tea isn't necessarily everyone else's.
Whoa. What? Once you get below a size six? I'm a size two and I have just as many curves as a woman should... just as many as the size six you speak of. You can easily be a size 6 and be overweight. Sizes are nothing but numbers. They don't tell you a thing about whether you're overweight. I met a lady once when I worked in a clothing store. She was very tall, around six feet and very thin; I thought she would have worn a smaller size but she turned out to be a ten because of her bone structure.
116...I'm 123lbs extremely far from fat and I was with an arrogant douche a few years back that would call me fat all the time just because my bones weren't bulging out of my skin...so no.. She certainly does not need to be fat for the boyfriend to call her fat.. He could just be a dick ... Just had to get that off my mind :/
116 I know plenty of people that call others fat or in this case "over weight" just because they plump. or stocky. or their hands dont connect fully when they hug em. Someone is just bigger than one's liking so they automatically fat. OP's other never loved her at all if she was broken up with for such a shallow excuse and he's not worth her time anyways.
She got so fat that the bf couldn't even be seen with her, so obviously she is way overweight than she should be to the point of health risks. Its okay if your not a walking skeleton,in fact i prefer if girls aren't, but don't become obese and let these fml post lead you to the denial of being unhealthy.
If you've gained a bunch of weight recently then YDI. If not then he's a dick.
I feel like there is some information missing from this FML. Everyone is saying he's an asshole, but maybe he came to her politely multiple times saying she's gaining weight and it's getting unhealthy and she chose to ignore him. If that is the case then OP deserves it. Don't automatically assume the BF is an asshole just because we hear one side of the story.
102 - A relationship isn't an excuse to let yourself go, but you're in the relationship because you love the person you're with. Telling them how you feel about the new weight would be ideal; helping them LOSE the weight if the agree to it would be better. If you dump someone because they gained 20 or 30 pounds, you're an asshole. If you dump someone because they gained 200 pounds, that's quite another story.
A 30 lb weight gain is not a small one in my instance. If I put on 30 pounds I would be 5 pounds away from being considered obese....so yeah that's not a small weight gain. Frankly, putting my life at risk by being obese is a valid reason for my SO to leave me if I'm not willing to do something about it. I never said everybody would be ok with it, but we are. I frankly don't care about what other people think...so moving on..
239 - Let me rephrase. While 30 pounds isn't a teeny tiny amount, it's still nothing close to 50 or 100 pounds and can be easily lost whereas 50-100 pounds will take a lot more work and time to come off. If I personally gained 30 pounds, I'd be a few pounds shy from being overweight. I would NOT be okay if someone dumped me because I gained a little weight - unless I was purposely letting myself go. Then IMO they have reason to; it shows your SO that you don't care enough to maintain yourself. But what if you do gain because of something out of your control? What if you're going through chemotherapy, which CAN cause you to gain (or lose) weight? Sometimes people do become extremely overweight because of medical circumstances and it's not right for the SO to be shallow and dump them over a weight gain. Good god, it's fat. It can be burnt off. Even a ten pound weight gain which is common with the birth control pill is grounds to dump someone according to many of you. That's just absurd and incredibly shallow.
FYL SOME people can't control their body weight. That is so terrible that he would just come out and say that!! It hurts knowing, yourself, that you're not the body type you want to be! But when the person you love says something like that... That's just terrible!! FYL
#73, Wow! I'd ask what it is, but I don't think I could handle the simultaneous blush and boner. Weight loss is a depressingly simple matter of calories in vs calories out. As you lose weight, you require even fewer calories. You have to be really motivated to feel satisfied with less and less food. For people like us, the amount of food we need is way less than what we'd want. If you like yourself at 195 and a man who loves you at that weight, stay there. Technically, you can be much lighter, but you don't need to be. Consider yourself lucky.
You CAN lose more. Weight loss is an equation: if you eat less than you burn, you will lose weight. 3,500 calories= 1 pound. However, if you create too much of a deficit, usually 1,000 calories a day, your body goes into famine/starvation mode & holds on to fat. You need to eat healthy food: raw veggies only do not a healthy diet make. That being said, if you and your husband are happy the way you are, you have no reason to change other than for your health. My point is that you physically CAN.
Don't think she felt very strongly about you. If she did she wouldn't care what others thought of you with her.
