    I'm lucky to have a super supportive husband. He loved me younger & smaller, pregnant, at my heaviest, and now still loving me throughout my weight loss. He just loves me smiling. :happy:

    My boyfriend is the one that pushed me to start losing weight, he said that my health was at risk. Psh, like he's a doctor (although he was right) but now it's more about just getting healthy than "losing weight" really.

    My Fiance loves it.

    He tells me I have a "glow" when I work out... I tell him he's delirious, its SWEAT. :)

    He tells me he loves me just how I am anyways.. But he knows its important to me, so if I start binging on something he'll take it away, and save me from myself.

    He has lost 20lbs too though, without hardly trying!! UGHHH.

    My wife is supportive, she's a bit jealous that I have the drive and motivation to go through with it finally. I think she's worried I'm going to leave her, but that's not going to happen. Love her too much, not to mention I'm beyond socially awkward.

    My boyfriend thinks I should stop where I am but still tone up a little. I want to loose at least another 3kg (7lb) and tone up. On the flip side - when we are out and people comment on my weight loss he always makes it known about how proud of me he is and makes sure they all know just how hard I've worked. He's my biggest fan club.

    Its interesting, he says that he is proud of me as he has been wanting me to lose but now that I have, he thinks its enough. And btw..he is very fit and has always been.

    I think a lot of SOs say things that they think are supportive or nice and are taken the wrong way.

    My wife is very supportive, and has told me I look great at all ranges on the scale. I know she thinks I look better when I look better though to be honest. It's not hard to figure it out.

    Honestly my husband is very supportive about it as long as I'm doing it the way he thinks I should be doing it. NO treats EVER! NO going light on a workout, no matter how you feel. Eating perfect. We went out for dinner the other night. I had a mountain dew. I got dirty looks, I'm down 62 lbs. He likes to say crap like "Just b/c you've lost a little bit of weight doesn't mean you need all new clothes! I should buy a belt." I was in a 20 now I'm in a 12.

    My husband has exactly zero interest in listening to any conversations relating to food or exercise. But he finds many ways to let me know that he appreciates my new look. It's taking both of us a bit to get used to the idea that other people (men types) also appreciate my new look.

    My bf's happy with whatever I choose to aim for/what make me happy. He doesn't really say much about it tbh, but if I need his support then he is there which is nice :)

    My hubby likes me on the heavier side and has no problem telling me that. For a while he was seriously trying to sabotage my healthy eating but he's stopped realizing it wasn't working.

    He fell in love with me when I was almost 400lbs, through my gastric bypass and through regaining a bit and now trying to smooth it all out again... he supports me no matter what. I have the best hubby!! <3

    I'm very fortunate my husband is incredibly supportive of pretty much anything I do.

    Initially, my husband said he was annoyed with my new-found fitness "thing" because: 1.) I was not eating enough and was cranky, and 2.) I would constantly talk about my workouts. And frankly, I probably was talking a little bit TOO much about it. However, for Mother's Day he got me a power tower, dumbell racks, and a roman that to me says he is supportive. He is generally a fit/active person too, but we can never lift together because we would be fighting over the oly bar.

    He doesn't really say much about it.It's kinda irritating sometimes because I would like some encouragement from him.He's actually gaining weight because I'm not helping him eat all of the junk he likes to eat lol.

    My boyfriend loves me just as I am and was, but he is very supportive of me trying to reach my weight loss goals. He even offers to go to the gym with me and be my trainer. He makes sure to let me know how beautiful he thinks I am with every pound I have loss/gained through this process. :heart:

    My hubby doesn't say a whole lot about what I am doing. He smirks a little when I dish up my plate and he catches me measuring out the salad dressing with a measuring spoon, but that doesn't bother me. He's told me he has noticed, since I have been working out, that I am in a better mood and have more energy (and drive :devil: ). I honestly didn't think he really even cared, but the other day a friend came up to me to ask about this "fabulous new diet" my husband had told her I was following! I had a good laugh at that later, because I still eat all the same foods, I am just more careful about portions, and snacking!
