Lose Weight - Get Dumped.

Ya'know. I noticed a strange phenomenon about weight loss. Being 8stone myself, I often find that I have no sympathy what-so-ever for people that are overweight unless it's because of a medical condition.

To me, weight gain is a result of laziness, then people moan about not being able to do the things they used to. Well, if you're carrying an extra 30 pounds around with you what do you expect? Bodies aren't designed to be over weight. Not really. I know it's because poeple don't have to 'hunt' for food anymore. If they're hungry all they have to do is walk to the kitchen and stuff their faces and humans obviously haven't found a happy medium.

However. I find it pleasing when people don't moan about the amount of weight they have gained and simply help themselves by losing it, but why is it that marriges often suffer for a partner losing weight?

Why is it, that when a partner begins to feel good about themselves, gain confidence and become somewhat happy about their appearence, their husband/wife simply cannot adjust to the positive changes their partner has made? Are they so insecure that they think their partner has changed a lot of things about themslves, maybe they'd want to change spouse, too?

It's funny, because nine times out of ten somebody decides to lose weight, not only for themselves, but for the approval and benefit of the one they love.... it isn't fair that the one they love then rejects them for the effort.

Really, it would be a whole lot easier if you didn't gain weight in the first place. Go to the gym people. It's not there to look pretty.
