I can’t believe Thanksgiving is next week. I feel like the fall just started. That I just started seeing the leaves change colors. That I just started wearing a coat. That I just started drinking my pumpkin spice lattes from Starbucks. And yet, regardless of me thinking it’s too soon for Thanksgiving to be approaching, the fact of the matter is it is. And with that said, I’ve compiled a short list of do’s and don’ts for my second favorite holiday.
I’m just going to put it on the table. I’m extremely uncomfortable being naked around my partner. We’ve been together for about 8 months, and I’ve put on about 18 pounds. Yes 18. Heck, the number of pants I can fit these days are few. While on one hand I’m kind of happy about the butt I never had starting to grow, I can’t deal with the extra stomach. The love handles aren’t sexy to me. Now my boyfriend says I’m still sexy to him, and even sexier now that there is a little more cushion for the pushin. Ironically, I don’t feel confident like I use to during sex. I wear a shirt and the lights stay off. I know I should go on an Herbal Life slim down or something, but what do I do in the meantime. It took 8 months to put on the weight, so I know it will take some time to lose it. Appreciate the help.
Should I expect my boyfriend to still want to be with me if I’ve gained weight since we first started dating? I mean we still love each other, but I have put on about 30 pounds in the 1 ½ years we’ve been together. And I’ve noticed we don’t have sex as often, but not sure if I should chalk that up to my weight or not. Your advice would be appreciated.
I’m going to try and keep this brief. Since social media has become such a big thing now, I’ve become increasingly more insecure. Men are posting pics of themselves with their rippling abs, their superman chests, their Hulk like arms, and their huge legs and butts that can crack walnuts. And then I look at me. Standing at 6’2″, weighing 240, with a medium/large build, a keg for a stomach, and a butt barely visible. Thankfully I’ve been told I have a nice smile and dimples. But honestly, how is a guy like me supposed to catch someone with mini versions of Captain America and the Black Panther walking around out here?
