1. He Became Bitter And I Ended It

I broke up with him. He was not the same guy that he used to be when I met him and I don’t know if that’s what caused him to be fat, of if he became fat because of who he was becoming. I tried to get him to go to the gym with me and on my morning jogs but nothing seemed to work really. He became really bitter and began blaming it on everyone and everything around him. I don’t know if I handled it properly but I’m happy to be single again. My mornings are way better now

2. Thousands Of Dollars Later, Nothing

I broke up with her after years of support and thousands of dollars in equipment, nutritionists and programs. What it came down to is a lack of fucks given to stick with anything.

3. 100% Unconditional Love

It’s not my spouse but my SO of 13 years. When I first met her she was 5’5, and what I consider skinny. She weighed about 100 pounds. She became pregnant with our son, and she blew up during her pregnancy which was expected. After she had our son it didn’t seem like she lost that much weight. She still kept up with her appearance, but really made no effort to lose the weight, and I can’t blame her shes super busy between the kids and work. Then we had 2 more kids, after each of the kids she didn’t lose much weight with either of them. Each pregnancy added more weight on to her. She still kept up with her appearance though. As in appearance I mean face, hair, nails, and clothes.

I’m not attracted to bigger girls at all, but I don’t consider her a big girl even though she gained all that weight. If I see another woman her size I am completely turned off. I am so ridiculously in love with her that I am completely blind to her weight gain. She is still as beautiful (maybe even more) as the day I met her. I wouldn’t change one thing about her. As long as we’re both happy and healthy I don’t see a reason to change. My love for her is truly 100% unconditional. I’m 37, and shes 30. I hope I have the pleasure to spend the rest of my life with this amazing woman.
