I'm interested on people's views on this subject.
I work with a guy who's wife insists he stays below a certain weight. This guy is quite tall (a little over 6 ft) and he has never actually been 'fat', or even chubby. Wife has recently placed pressure on him to drop down to a certain weight by Christmas. He has over 5kg to lose before Christmas, and he has been really putting in the effort.
This got me thinking - do you feel justified telling your partner to lose weight? And would you feel okay if your partner told you to lose weight?
I can't help but feel it's quite hurtful, especially if the weight the person is carrying is not significant or detrimental to their health.
My DH is certainly cuddlier than when we first met (he was really underweight back then actually), but I think it would be a massive blow to his self esteem if I told him I wanted him to lose weight. I'd also be hurt if the shoe was on the other foot.
