“hey. i just felt like sharing, and you’re my favorite person in the small portion of the flogosphere (fat blogosphere… flogging blogs are cool too though) that i follow. if you feel like publishing this, keep me anon though, k?
so. i currently weigh 278lbs- (last i had checked, a few months ago, i was 265). i told my boyfriend this, and he informed me that if i reached 300, he would start threatening to break up with me if i didnt start trying to lose weight. i was pretty shocked- we’ve been together over 2 years and have a great relationship, despite our ups and downs. my size has only ever been an issue in the context of him defending me when his family talks shit behind my back. i do believe that his reaction comes from nothing but fear/concern. i’ve always been big, and never in my life been fit/active, and says he’s terrified that i’ll die before him (that’s a big statement, since he “know’s [he’ll] die by 40” [he’s chubby and a smoker, but is fitter than me]). like i said, my weight has never been a factor in our relationship. i just think it’s a pretty fucked up over-reaction. thoughts?”
There are a few people I’d like to call to the stand when it comes to a submission like this.
Neil and Chisi (anamanajewbee & misschisi)
and Jenny (jennylewren)
Bob (bob4567) and cuddlykatie
My opinion will come in a bit. <3
