    Bigger than my Boyfriend: How To Deal

    I don’t know if I have been feeling down about my weight or what, but lately I’ve been mentally freaking myself out over my weight and my relationship.
    My boyfriend of almost 2 years is without a doubt built rather slim and is only a couple of inches taller than me. I am built to be a stocky girl, but I am also overweight. I have been working on losing weight and live a healthier lifestyle. I feel like I am never going to really be SKINNY like him. It may sound stupid but there are moments where I feel like I am not as feminine or “girlfriend material” as other women He has supported me in my recent efforts to be healthier. He’s never actually made my weight a problem, but with other people and situations he has said some pretty insensitive things that I sometimes take personally. I’m just nervous about his real feelings about my weight. Is he sincere, or is he trying to hide his secret disgust? Do other women experience this? How should I deal with this while I lose weight?
