Default Stuff my Boyfriend Says

I saw a thread on here called "Something my mother said" and it sparked conversation about "Stuff my Mother says." While my mother has said some pretty whacked things to me about weight loss, my boyfriend is even more clueless. I'd like to know what your boyfriends, fiances, spouses, or life partners have said to you.

I'll start us off:
"Your face feels smaller in my hands."
"Maybe soon we can do it standing up."
And my favorite (This one is more cute than clueless, but I had to include it
"There will never be less of you to love; your personality has always been bigger than your ass."

I've gotten the standing-up one too! Almost the exact same comment!

My BF is pretty dang supportive, I'm lucky, but here's some gems:

"I think you could hit 105, don't sell yourself short" (I have no idea why he thinks 105 lbs. is the magic number, but that's too small for me at my height, it puts me underweight on the BMI!)

"I wish that you only lost weight on your belly and legs and not everywhere."

Within the same day: "Are you sure you want to eat that?" (when I was reaching for some chocolate) and then like an hour later "It seems like you can't eat anything, you should lighten up and live a little" (?!?!?!?!)

I think we've all gotten the 'standing up' one! LOL

My hubby said once... "When you lose all your belly, your boobs will be to your knees."

I wanted to buy more shoes the other day and the comment I got was "Why do you need more shoes? Are you feet losing weight too?" LOL

My BF said (15 years after we met): "No matter your size, my heart starts beating faster when you walk into the room." This was the on-again/off-again BF.

An interim BF said (when I told him I'd lost an inch in my bust): "Go off that diet. NOW!"

Hehe, yep!

My fiancé also tells me he'd think I'm beautiful even if I get really big which is sweet and lets me know he loves me, but it doesn't really help with motivation lol although I don't think I'd ever want him to tell me he'd stop loving me if I reached a certain weight.
