    So, that'll explain my ex's behaviour over the last month and a half then!

    Clearly he wanted us both to start on SW because he had plans all along... hmmm, wouldn't surprise me, wouldn't surprise me at all the way he has behaved!

    I saw that story this morning and thought exactly the same mrsthunderbolt! Ridiculous load of tosh as usual from the DM.

    Is it really that people in a diet are looking to improve their lives and as they get smaller begin to realise that in fact the dissatisfaction stems from more than their size.
    Or perhaps that when you've put in so much time and effort and yet the other half hasn't tried to keep up a little bit, I love my husband but his constant griping without making any effort to change drives me nuts!!!

    What a load of rubbish!!!!
    I'm currently loosing weight BECAUSE I WANT TO.
    I'm soooooo in love with my hubby and the fact that he loves my changing shape is a bonus.
    When i'm where i want to be, I will feel more confident for myself in and our relationship
    My hubby loves me WHATEVER size i am, but I WANT TO LOOSE WEIGHT so i like me.

    I saw this in tv this morning, I've been with my boyfriend for over 2 years, I've been skinnier and heavier during this time! I want to loose weight to feel better about myself not so I can get someone better! Luckily I have the best man for me, such a silly story I think.

    I suspect it's more that the person slimming has been unhappy in their relationship for a while, but once they've slimmed down they have enough confidence that if they leave they can find someone else! Or is that me being cynical?!

    I certainly haven't got my bags packed. Couldn't find anyone better suited to me than my OH :)

    Well this article makes an incorrect assumption first off that renders all the subsequent findings worthless.

    I am not loosing weight to be thin & attractive. I am losing it to be healthy. I might never be slim, even at target, but i will probably live a damn sight longer than if i had done nothing about my weight. This is the basic reason why i'm doing thiis. I love my husband - i'd rather not die early & leave him alone, of sonething i could have prevented with some simple lifestyle changes.

    I think that my hubby did go through a stage of thinking thats why I was losing weight though which put a lot of pressure on at one time. I think he has finally realised I am doing it for me though not what I look like for others!

    Not read it yet, but come on, it's an article in the Daily Fail for god's sake! They're only good for the puzzle page!

    So VERY true! The other day someone tried to tell me the mail online was better than the actual paper. I do not believe them!
