My fiancé is my biggest supporter and motivator. He knows how strongly I feel about my weight and wanting to lose weight. But he knows how to motivate me without making it seem as though he thinks that I 'need' to lose weight. He makes it clear that he loves me the way that I am but that he understands my need to feel comfortable in my skin.
On the other hand, going to the doctors (any doctor) is stressful because of when they weigh me. Every year I stress about going to the gyno, not because of the exam but because I know that after they weigh me I will be handed a piece of paper labeling me as obese because of my weight. I know that physically I do not look obese but my bmi measures that way. I have a lot of muscle in my legs and I believe this is part of my weight problem in terms of bmi, as well as my body structure itself. I am only 5'5-5'6 but weigh over 200lbs. But looking at me you wouldn't guess that as my weight because my body type (wide hips and rib cage) make me being a little heavier look normal.
