Background: Technically she is within her BMI for her height and weight. whoopie... when we first started dating, she had the perfect ratio of muscle and fat, and sexy legs.
We been together for 3 years... and this last year.. she just shriveled up into a very skinny girl. No drugs, doesn't drink.
The bones are appearing around her shoulders and even on the front of her chest.. which is becoming turnoff.
When ever we go out with friends or family they dont exactly compliment her on being "soooo skinny".
To me I feel its like we look like we cant afford food to eat.. thats how bad its getting. It was a bit embarrassing around the holidays visiting family. "Is everything ok with you too? Hows work?"
She has some stomach issues with constipation so she is very picky on her food.. which is mostly veggies.. but she does eat fish and chicken.
How can I even have a positive discussion about her weight... I know this is an incredibly dangerous task. If she gained like 8 lbs things would back to normal.
She keeps saying "I like the way I look!"
Or should I just be thankful that my girl is not some obese fat fuck.
>Technically she is within her BMI for her height and weight
Then don't say shit, because she's fine as she is. It'd be one thing if she was obese and destroying her health, but it sounds like she's actually taking care of her body.
>To me I feel its like we look like we cant afford food to eat..
Stop being an over-sensitive shit.
>It was a bit embarrassing around the holidays visiting family. "Is everything ok with you too? Hows work?"
Jesus Christ, this is just your average small talk.
Those stomach issues might be related to something more serious, like Crohn's disease or something. Major gas, nausea, whatever.
Otherwise, just talk with her about it if you haven't already. It's her body, and presumably in your in your teens-twenties. She'll probably put on weight in a couple years without needing to be asked.
She is on the very light side of the BMI chart.
Before, when we hug its like firmness and press of muscle tissue and fat on the touch... and now.. its like skin and bones.
She has nice set of boobies.. but now her ribs are just poking out and especially the shoulder area.
She is a bit too obsessed with fitness I think.
We both workout regularly.. but I think with her low calories and strenuous exercise.. she is losing crazy weight.
I dont push her change in any way.. I really dont want to upset her and cause some even more eating issues with her constipation problems.
She is not Bulimic... before anyone suggests that. We live together.
Stomach digestion issues need to be addressed then her disordered eating.
That is disordered eating and not necessarily eating disorder.
You can be at a good bmi and still be incredibly unhealthy and malnourished.
She could be depressed and you have no idea, try to cheer her up or something, I don't think I've known a dude in a good relationship with his GF ever try to talk to her about her weight so don't try doing that.
IDK I guess ask how she feels, or tie to your bed and force feed her extra cheesy pizza and ice cream for 2 months, your call bro
We both got a health check up... and the doctor said everything was ok.. other than fatty liver ( which was surprising, she barely eats sweets... but I do.)
This weight issue has effected her period too if that changes anyones opinion on this matter.
If her period is being fucked up she's more than likely malnourished and needs more weight on her.
Either she has stomach issues and needs to see a different doctor or there's more of a mental/emotional issue playing into it
If she's lost so much weight that she's no longer menstruating or is skipping periods, that is a bad sign. She should be mentioning that to her doc. Personally I would do this: tell her you love her so much, and you know the doc said everything was all right, but you're still worried that she's gotten so thin, and it would ease your mind a lot if she got a second opinion from another doc just to make sure everything's okay. And encourage her to tell the doc every little irregularity or symptom she has, so they don't miss a diagnosis.
They gave her hormone pills.
They havent changed much of anything to be honest.. she still is sweet, etc. Not a raging monster
