    Partners knowing your weight

    Hello slimming worlders

    Do you guys share your weight with your partners? My fiancé and I were signing up for our mortgage today and with that was life insurance cover
    The mortgage advisor openly asked our heights and weights and clothes size on front of each other
    We are very open with each other but I felt so embarrassed declaring my weight in front of him, even 4 hours on and I'm still upset about it lol I know I'm insane! But was wondering what your views are on this?

    My husband knows my weight, always has done, to be fair it's only a number, he can see with his eyes how big or small I am. X x

    Yeah you're right there, I wish I wasn't so caught up on it! I've always had an issue declaring my weight to anyone

    I would have been completely horrified, Ive always been really secretive about my weight. My oh knows to leave the room if I get weighed on my wii fit!

    Partners knowing your weight

    I hated telling mu oh what I weighed and remember a similar scenario when I was at my biggest. It took me till I had ost at least 3 stone to tell him what I weighed when I started.

    Lol I'm so glad you's feel the same! I was horrified, and I knew it was coming because they asked my OH first, I think it made it even worse

    My OH is so understanding and knows my hang ups and hasn't mentioned it to me, but I'm mortified!

    I don't like admitting my weight (current or start) Im sure he does know it but I usually just say how much I've lost each week or overall which always sounds better than remindidng myself how far Ive still got to go

    I'm the same. Although if he thought about it he could probably work it out its just those figures are too high for me to admit to. Or at least they were!! I'd be mortified to be put in the situation you found yourself in. I think its a very personal thing to ask someone outright like that. They should have a better policy where you write it down. That way you could go second and just hand the form back!

    DH and I weigh in on our bathroom scales every Wed before I go to SW. We have a diary where we write down our weights, so he definitely knows what I weigh. He's trying to lose a couple of stone too, so neither of us are particularly thrilled by our numbers. I'm about a stone heavier than him.

    I'd not fancy having to declare it to someone else though, hate it at the GPs when you've to hop on the scales.

    I can so relate to this. I started SW 2 weeks ago (weigh in tonight, yikes!) and my ex partner, who I still work with, was encouraging and said, "How much have you got to lose? Two stone?" I said it was a bit more than that, not wanting to admit it's actually 6 stone! He said Oh, 3 stone? At that point I chickened out and said yes at least 3 stone. The conversation was left at that point. I was too embarrassed to tell him the real figure because then he would be able to work out how much I really weigh, which is more than he weighs even with his own excess fat. I couldn't bear it if he knew that!

    My husband knows my weight and always has. I figure he loves me no matter what. I would, however be mortified if anybody else knew and on occasion he has nearly mentioned my start weight when in company when weight/loss is discussed. He is silenced by a death stare from me lol.

    Mine knows what I weigh and couldn't care less. I know he loves me regardless of what number a set of scales throw at me, so I don't mind discussing it with him.

    My logic is that since he sees me everyday I can't lie and say "I'm a svelte 120lbs!" if he was smart enough he'd have a pretty good estimate anyway, I didn't say it outright, but when he asked I thought there was no point lying - I've made myself a sticker chart for losses anyway, so it's all on there! But if anyone else knew or asked I'd probably be mortified, unless they ask when I'm at target, then I'll gladly tell them!
