My Boyfriend Hates My Weight
So...I have always been a heafty gal. I was overfed as a child by my grandmother, and it developed into a disorder. When I was 12, I was 215 pounds. I dropped down to 172 when I met my boyfriend (3 years later), and everything was swell. We got along, he called me beautiful, he couldn't wait to talk to me.
As it happens, he and his family moved to Texas a year later. We talked every single night, and I slowly built up a good amount to see him. I got the money roughly four years after the move. During this period, I gained 10 pounds. When I visited him, he is happy to see me. But I could tell he wasn't happy about my figure. He hinted that I should lay off coffee. He said I should try an Egg Diet, or go vegan for a year. He even called me disproportionate when I wore a dress, because it was 99 degrees outside.
I went home after a week, and immediately get on a diet. However, he was becoming cold towards me. He suddenly got motivated to get three jobs, he claimed to have a lot on his plate, and he only talked to me 3 or 4 days out of the week. Well, with the help of my diet, I lost 40 pounds. When I told him the news, he told me that I am a liar, and said " you look no different". Showed him a picture of the scale. The proof satisfied him for a while.
Month later, we are talking like we usually are. Except, he always asks me how my diet is going, and if I lost anything. I recently relapsed, and gained 8 pounds. He is now giving me the cold shoulder, and telling me that I am not trying hard enough to be healthy.
I am trying all I can. Exorcise, diet, abstaining from sugar and bread, getting outside for at least 2 hours a day. I've exhausted everything to keep him happy, but I'm almost at my limit. I'm considering a break up, but we have been together for so long, I'm not sure if I can handle it.
