I'm with him now 15 years - when we met, I was slim. Then I gained weight (60 pounds - thyroid thanks). And I felt uncomfortable for a couple of years. He never said anything negative about my body. He always said, he loves me, he loves my body.
But it was more. I was not confident. And that included my body AND my mind.
Now, Age 39, I feel confident. I know what I'm worth. :) Stretch marks, belly, bingo wings included

I walk in front of my boyfriend au natural all the time. I have stretch marks all over my stomach, scars from my lapband, muffin top, etc... his love for me makes me not care about these outward imperfections. I'd rather not be running around the house naked all the time because who knows who might show up on the porch, but knowing it's just us and the dogs, doesn't matter!

The question is do you feel confident enough to walk in front of your partner in your birthday suit at any size? I've been with my husband for 18 yrs, a few years before I met him I lost a ton of weight went from a size 22 to a size 6 and so I had stretch marks already. Actually I think I was born with them hahaha. I never felt self conscious about walking in the buff in front of him being a size 6 to when I got pregnant for our son, when I got real heavy from being sick and was bedridden for a year not being able to exercise packed pounds on like crazy. He never made me feel bad about my body ever, no negative comments, no disgusting looks , he has always given me confidence to walk around freely. I was wondering if anyone else feels confident enough to do this at what ever size you are now or have been?
Starting to like the new me! Waiting for my garden to come to life!
