We were at brunch after all; you are supposed to stuff yourself silly.

In addition, people who work out in the hopes that their toned physique will snag them a suitor might relax their gym routine once they’ve found a mate. Obviously this isn’t true for everyone, though...
This week, over in the Ask YourTango forums, a user wants to know if her boyfriend really has a problem with her weight or if he was just on a drunken rant, and well, I'll let her explain: "Recently, we went to a party, and he had a little much to drink. When we got home, he proceeded to tell me that he didn't feel like our sex life was up to snuff because of my weight. He said that he didn't feel attracted to me because of it, but that he loves me for who I am now.
