    Yea that's what I tell DH too. Not every command is going to be a godsend but you just have to grin and bear it.

    Yep, pretty much before field med everyone PSI's down here for a little bit. DH did for like 2 months.

    Well DH isn't much of a paper pusher. He hates it. I, in fact, love it. Don't know why We always say that I should have joined the Navy instead. His recruiters were always trying to get me to join and his parents suggested it to me too.

    But yea. DH used to work with a unit that did a lot of paperwork, all the time. Now that he's working in a battalion, he enjoys it so much more.

    Exactly. Like I'll make fun of DH and tell him he's getting fat, in a joking manner and he knows I'm kidding because we know he's not.

    I think, what I think is big for me isn't really all that big. I just have a small body frame. Really, I do.. I can fit my hand around my wrist and then some. It's probably 4 inches or so in diameter I know. Freakishly small.

    But yep, to me my DH is just my DH. I wouldn't be able to tell if he gained weight unless it was a lot. I notice a lot more when he loses it than if he were to gain.. Not like he has gained anything in the past year and a half anyway

    Yea. If I could still fit in the prom dress I wore my senior year, I'd definitely wear it again. However, it was tailored to fit me perfectly then.. The dress was a 0 and they had to take it in. So I doubt it fits now. DH went to a different school, but it was my old high school actually so and the location sucked so we opted just to go to mine

    Yea. I totally hear you on the ex business. I got over it pretty quick, we dated for a little over a year or so. But the weight thing wasn't even just him. It was his mom, people around me. I dunno. It was just unhealthy for me.

    Like some days, I feel humongous, and other days it's like hey I feel good about how I look. I try to avoid saying I feel fat in public or around people I know it makes uncomfortable. & Yea I totally get why you stopped being friends with them. Real friends don't blow you off because you tell them how you feel. I have only a couple of real friends from high school that I really keep contact with.

    Thank you, really. I appreciate it. My DH tells me all the time, usually just out of nowhere but it's always nice to hear it from some place else.

    Ooh! That's such a pretty dress!

    Yea, lets just say I had a pretty emotionally abusive relationship with my ex towards the end of it. He brought upon a lot of insecurity about myself. Especially telling me that I was fat AND ugly.

    Plus I know a lot of judgmental people and I guess after all the emotional/mental abuse. It just kind of stuck you know? Like some people will ask me if I think other people are fat and to me it's no, but every time they tell me I'm smaller than that I just don't see it.

    I would try therapy for it but I think it's just a self image problem I have with myself. I take comfort in the fact that my husband is blatantly honest & loves the way I am now. To him, he doesn't see a difference

    But still, I think that dress is super cute.

    Yea. It sucks. What sucks even more is how everyone that's used to me being super small, constantly reminds me that I've put on weight. I've got slight thyroid problems so I guess that attributes to it. My DH says I'm fine the way I am. He doesn't need me to be stick skinny anyway. But also my laziness has attributed to it as well.

    Me and my sister. One of the others that has reminded me about how my weight now is SO much more than it used to be.. Thanks sis.

    good thinking! Pfft.. high school size. That is completely dead for me.

    That is me "high school size" and I thought I was fat then I had actually lost a bit of weight a few months after that when I broke up with my douche bag ex.

    Sounds like mine. He can never just wait. I don't mind being the one sending out the goodies. I can't afford to gain anymore weight I might as well run for an hour straight every day this weekend to keep Thanksgiving dinner to show in my stomach

    No Spam sandwiches this Christmas, not for him. He's getting prime rib It's a tradition, my mom ALWAYS does it at their house so we'll be there for that. But yea, the food never lasts. I made him this chocolate peanut butter fudge.. and I think one day he came back to find that someone ate it all

    Plus not to mention every time I was on the phone with him, someone was always eating the food. Everyone would be like "is that your girl? tell her the cookies are awesome." Or they'll actually take the phone from him and say "you know.. if he doesn't want the peanut brittle you can send it to me"
