    Yes, we both know what each other weigh and clothes size. We are both about 20 kilos overweight, he just carries it much better as he is 6 and a half foot. Besides the fact that we would both like to lose some weight, we certainly don't give each other grief. It is what it is!!

    Dh doesn't know, and I wouldn't tell him unless I was happy with it. Even though I don't look like I did pre-baby (over 4 years ago..) I somehow (insanely) feel that if I don't tell him how much I weigh in his mind I will still look fit and slender...

    FWIW I'm 75kg, optimum weight for my frame is 55-60kg (according to my GP), so I'm 15-20kg away from my target range...

    No he doesn't. He's average weight sized 32 while im classed as obese size 20. He has guessed once and I just said 'yeah around that mark' but it's really like 20kg more. He does know my clothing size which is enough I think.I thought about telling him, but the day he guessed he told
    Me that his aunt was X amount and died which was only a few kgs more than me :S I then thought I didn't want to upset him.

    Yesssss, I think that is how it plays out in my mind too, because he can't see my dimply thighs or wibbly belly when I do the nudie run from the bathroom to the bedroom.

    I have no idea what I way..so hubby wouldn't. He doesn't care...we met and I was 65kg then up to 72kg ( well uni course we had to measure weight)......was 20 kg's lighter after having no.3. But even then hubby said he can't see any difference..ok big tum with bub in it lol ( men).....but he always tells me he loves me for me when I was 20 and now as 34......and yes Im skinnier now and you know what he dosen't ever see it. Idiot sees he married the 'package' and loves it???? He hasn't changed a bit..lucky him , lucky me( when will technology allow men to have kids......kindergarden cop lied)

    Yep. I b*tch and moan about my weight, especially now I'm pregnant and finding I'm gaining more than I'd like.

    When not UTD it helps me to celebrate when I work hard and achieve and when I'm going the other way, I try not to weigh myself anymore though, I guess I feel I shouldn't feel embarassed to tell my husband, I have a history of body image issues/eating disorder and it's probably better to keep my thoughts in the open. I have a thyroid problem and it's been hard for me to deal with my weird metabolism... I think DH is sick of hearing about it all. I know he loves me no matter what.. and did joke with me when I was heavier than him while pregnant with DS.

    So glad I'm not the only one with that crazy thought process.

    Lol I had to tell my partner because I wanted him to come to my scans and appointments and it would've come up anyway. He's like a medium in clothes and I'm 2inches taller and size 20/22 so he didn't really get my way of thinking. When I told him he didn't believe me, was like 'but that's huge and your not that big'. Not great for self esteem I tell ya. And now he's all 'I'm worried and don't want anything happening to you or the baby'. Ffs. The doctor is happy with what I've been doing and where im at. I know he loves me but GRRR
