I’ve never posted in here before but been a long time reader and I have found so much about this space to be helpful.
I’ve been with my partner for 2 years now. For context, he is a thin cisgender man and I am a fat cisgender woman.
I’ve been going to a therapist in the last 6 months to work on my binge eating, which has always been something I struggled with, but especially since covid. I am really hopeful about my progress so far but it’s definitely hard..
My partner can eat whatever he wants and never put on an ounce of fat. He just doesn't gain weight ever, in fact he struggles to stay at his weight but eats so much.
And it triggers me. He can eat candy and popcorn and have 5 meals a day, whereas i'm trying to 'not restrict myself' but also control myself around food.
I don’t want to make him feel weird about his own eating habits or even call attention to them because I know how that’s felt for me with people.
Thanks for reading 💛
