like i said, i think complacency in the relationship is the issue here. you aren't attracting any tail so she doesn't have that "desire" to work her ass off (pun intended)

MrVanos - Simple, just look at her mom. If her mom is fat then there's not much you can do as it's in her DNA to be fat (unless she really works at it).

Thanks 2 everyone that replied with USEFULL info. I'm almost sure that she changed her birth control pill like a month ago... i'd say shes gained a good 10-15lbs. She does eat like crazy tho.... i'm so sad, i've tried droping subtle hints.. that just made shi<a>t hit the fan. I really don't know what to do any more....

FYI - changing a birth control pill CAN cause weight gain (hormones bro)

i'm also quite sure she has noticed this gain and in time she will likely say something to you (that will open the door for you and be sure to tread lightly on the subject)

you should get fat...fatter than her. then when she tells you that you are getting fat...you bring out the big guns and tell her "YOU STARTED IT!! and ask her how she didn't notice it on herself." or you could offer to go excercise together. either way. good luck. as long as you are bigger than the girl, s'all good.

I'm almost definite this is the reason for the weight gain because the same thing happened to me. My advice: DO NOT tell her she is fat or else she will tear your ****ing head off. If she says something about her weight gain, reply with something like...yes I've noticed but you're still beautiful blah blah blah. DO NOT tell her you are not attracted to her anymore because of the weight. This will only hurt her and she'll bring it up for the rest of your relationship whenever she is angry with you. She is probably taking the pill for you...yes? So anything negative you say about the effects of a pill she is taking for you will inflame her to no end.

The best way to get her to lose weight is not to suggest that you work out together. It will not work unless she has the desire to do so already. This is what worked for me (I'm such a sucker): tell her you want to spend the rest of your life with her and have a long happy life together, so you want the both of you to start taking better care of yourselves by working out and not eating anymore bad foods etc. Or else tell her to get off the pill.

I gained almost 45 Lb. since I've started dating my fiance over 4 years ago...

I really got fat... I was well built before and now i'm a chubby balloon..

I think it bothers me more than it bothers her... but she's something special.. I don't think I could handle her gaining so much weight...

happened to my girl. the good thing is that her chest got bigger too.

just squeeze and play with the fat and she'll get the hint.

You are now left with an aesthetically unappealing M3. It still drives great, and it still offers that visceral feel from behind the wheel, but you don't look at it the same way. This doesn't mean you want to sell the car, you're just not pleased with it at the moment. The damage is repairable, but until that damage is repaired, it's an eyesore.


Damn, my analogies suck worse than an nipple-hungry infant.
dude, that's a horrible analogy. no one is arguing with you that aesthetic is important. the mere issue we're trying to tackle is what is the best way to get a girl who's gained a few unsitely pounds to lose them. my argument is that using subtle methods to manipulate a girl into losing weight is dishonest and deceptive at best. if one is dissatisfied with his/her significant others' looks, then one should a) be upfront and honest about it, or b) just learn to accept it. you personally wouldn't like to be manipulated, right?? so why is it okay to manipulate someone else??

In a perfect world, I'd agree with you unquestionably. Fact is, most people can't handle brutal honesty. I'm sure you'd agree, yes? This becomes especially true when a situation revolves around the feelings and/or emotions of a woman. You choose to expound on an issue which needn't be.

Didn't read the whole thread, but other than going to the gym, try to watch what she eats. Quit the fast food, and try to make healthier choices when you go out to eat. Also cut back on the dessert and save a buck or two while you're at it.
