Default My GF is getting too fat

I have a situation. I've been dating this girl for 7 years. I really think I want to marry her and I told her so. Well now she is getting a bit too comfortable in the relationship.

The other night, we were getting it on, and the bed f*cking broke. The next morning, through a bit of digging, I found out she weighs over 200 pounds now. Keep in mind, she was a sexy 140 when we dated.

So how exactly do I tell her to lose weight. That was like a $400 bed set and I can't afford buying new beds. That's as bad as the time when I bought the first set of Xbox 360s and they would only last for a couple of months.

How do you tell a girl to lose weight without offending her. She knows she's fat, I know she's fat, all her friends know she's fat, heck, even her dead auntie is visiting her in her dreams telling her she's fat, but it's just a topic of conversation I just can't bring up directly.

I still love her, but damn, she needs to lose a few pounds because that love is going to dwindle when another expensive bed set is broken. Sorry if I sound superficial, but this is a serious problem in our relationship.

LMFAO 200lbs? Holy shit.. You should go for runs and suggest she comes with you. Or start going to the gym and make up some shit about how it would be fun if she went with you. Do things together and it'll help encourage her.

whoa when I read the title i was gonna say something along the lines of "youre a douchebag, you shouldnt care blah blah blah" but gaining 60 lbs is crazy.

Do you weigh a lot? maybe she feels like she can get away with it.

The best way is to offer to do a "couples fitness/yoga/pilates" course together or something, like make it seem like you want to spend more time with her. I'm sure if you can find out a way to find out her weight then you can figure out a way to ask her

If you are dating someone for seven years and not married ditch them and start over. SEVEN YEARS?

Aside from that tell her the truth. She's getting big and it's unhealthy and you're not going to stay around to watch her get sicker and sicker.

OP is a chubby chaser...

talk to her about it. tell her it's on your mind. plant that seed.


i was in a similar situation in my last relationship.

i ended up hurting her feelings. we broke up soon afterward.

Just tell her that she's overweight but don't tell her she's fat though. Or heck just tell her that you're both getting fat and you both need to go to they gym and eat healthier because you want to spend more time with her when you both get older.

Narrow all your doors by a foot, then pretend everything is normal. She should work it out.

Bullshit That would be the most awkward thing ever.

Do you guys have a mutual friend you both are close to? If so, there is your key to help get this situation fixed. Talk to her about it, don't just be like "shes fat af and it needs to change", be real genuine about it. She might even work out with her to give her that extra motivation. If you guys don't have that mutual friend well...still try talking to one of her friends you know a little better

LOL thanks for the laugh op. One of my buddies had to deal with the same issue, they started working out together and now she is in much better shape. Just gotta join the gym together and start eating healthy at home, the bitch will love you even more if you help her get in fit.
