Women & Their Weight
Since you are a woman maybe you can help me with this. My wife and I just had our first child four and a half months ago. My wife put on a bit of extra weight, obviously, and I do not care one little bit. Personally, I think it looks good on her. However, she is beating herself up over it. She is constantly calling herself fat, wears these over-sized clothes, and she will not get involved with me romantically. Every single time she looks in the mirror she gets so mad, and then takes it out on me. I tell her she is beautiful, and I even organized a night out and she refuses to go. I do not know how to get her out of this slump. I do not want to make a big deal out of it, or I will make things worse I think, but I do not know what else to do. I just wish she could see what I see-- a beautiful mother of my child. It is to the point where she will not eat anything, and then she is so tired that I am stuck with trying to take care of our son by myself. Why do women make such a fuss over their weight. She wanted kids, and what... she did not expect to gain weight?
