Sorry... I kinda got lost with the recent posts, (it definitely sounds as though some of you have met some 'interesting' men), but I wanted to comment to the original poster whose husband didn't respond positively about her weight loss.
I can only speak from personal experience, but my hubby has never spoken a word about how proud he is of my weight loss. Even if people tell him "You must be SO proud of your wife!" he kinda just shrugs and tries to change the subject. This used to really hurt me until I thought a bit about it.
Neil met me when I was obese... he married me when I was obese... and he spent 5 years with me when I was obese and before I started on my journey to lose weight. I honestly feel that he doesn't want to give anyone the impression that I am any "better" now than I was before. When I have mentioned this to him he has nodded, but not really committed himself either way. I still believe this to be the case though. Last April he wrote the most beautiful comments in my birthday card, letting me know that he was proud of what I had been able to achieve and he was happy for me that I was feeling better. Oh... there was just SO much more, and it made me cry. He was able to let me know how he felt, but still let me know that he loves me 'unconditionally'. My weight just doesn't seem to be an issue for him. I know that he is pleased for me though, as I am so much happier and confident now.
Anyway... I just wanted to throw that thought out there. Sometimes our partners just either don't know how express what they feel, in case it comes out that they like you MORE when you are slimmer. To be honest, I think I would be extremely hurt if Neil ever gave me that impression. I would hate to think that my looks meant more to him than what is on the inside. That may sound a little cliche, but I am being honest.
Well, I am going to go and see what my wonderful (although sometimes frustrating) hubby is up to. It must be getting close to 40C here and I just can't seem to get cool enough.
Take care all,
Losing weight has given me a "Freedom" that I had never previously experienced as an adult... and I am LOVING it!!!
160kg (2004)... 73kg (2006)... Working on maintaining.
