  • Tell him the only reason the two of you are not having sex is that his foot is in his mouth. I don't have sex with rude people!

  • Tell him he's a pile of crap! That is the most insensitive comment a husband can make to his wife! I hate to say this but could he possibly be having an affair and using your weight as an excuse to not have sex with you and not "cheat" on his girlfriend? Sorry, but it is something you have to consider:(

  • I wouldn't go insulting him back, and make matters worse, but I sure would let him know that I'm not going to tolerate being treated badly. That was uncalled for.

    I understand how you feel, I gained over 100lbs with my first. I also gained about 40lbs with my 2 youngest (though I lost the baby weight from the first), and didn't lose any of it between pregnancies... At my biggest, I was a sz 18-20. After the youngest 2 i was a 16, and I have always been very slight. If I can do it, so can you- I have been back in a 4-6 for almost 2 years now!

    My ex treated me so badly, and said the same things to me. We didn't share a bedroom for the last 2 years of our marriage, and he would tell me things like "I can't even get it up with you in the room because you're so fucking fat and disgusting!". I will NEVER again let someone treat me that way.

    If you're interested in your relationship, I suggest counseling.

  • That was a really mean thing of him to say. You should let him know that he hurt your feelings, and that you are working on it, but your body is never going to be the same after having kids. I'm sorry, that was a really jerk thing for him to say.

  • That's rude. Men sometimes have no tact! We actually have more sex now that I've had all the kids and I am not a size 2 anymore!
