  • Do y'all live together?

    If yes - who does the cooking? Start cooking healthier meals and don't buy any junk snacks. Opt for buying flavor packets for water and don't purchase sugary drinks.

    Suggest going for a walk and/or run a few evenings during the week.

      no we've actually been long distance for the past few months. i only noticed his weight gain in the last pics he sent.

      He might be eating more as a coping mechanism because he misses you. Not that I'm blaming you at all, but it's a highly likely scenario.

      i thought about that and im ok with that. tbh i like that he might be less desirable to other girls.

  • He's an athlete? Of what?
    Competitive eating?

  • That's not fat. Gross and I think he's pushing out his stomach, but not fat. Great now I have to focus on scrubbing that image out of my mind..

  • It is a delicate matter. You need to tell him skilfully. Anyway boys don't mind if they are fat. So even if you tell him that he is fat , he may not be ready to change. Accept him as he is. If you irritate him , he may dump you.

  • Yeah, best to nip it in the bud; I knew a guy who died of a heart attack at 38 (he was considerably fatter than this).

  • Yes. And you have a right to leave him if he's not keeping himself in the condition he was in when you got together.

  • Yeah, but be subtle about it, if he gets butthurt or something he's most likely not gonna change a thing.

  • Personally I think you should find a way to tactfully tell him that he is gaining a bit of weight and you'd prefer him to take care of himself. I would say the same if the situation were reversed.

  • I tell my boyfriend when he starts gaining a bit. He is very healthy, and it isn't hard for him to lose weight if he does gain about 5 pounds.

    Better stop your boyfriend now than later.
