Because I made that choice for myself when my partner liked me being big and I have never been happier even though she is long in my past.

If you want it, if you need it, do it. I understand the excitement of the gradual growth of a woman's body because that's life sometimes. I understand the excitement when it is intentional. I also understand that if physical attraction is the sole reason I love and am with someone, I need some serious help and I have no right to be in a relationship.

My significant other is on a journey to finding her own happiness right now. Part of that journey has been and will continue include losing weight. But I love her and my attraction to her body is only one small facet of that love.

Love yourself first.
There need to be more people in relationships with this opinion. I think that phelan4022 wrapped up what needed to be said quite nicely.
