On a recent episode of Dr. Phil (see video clip here), a guest shares her frustration over how her husband will not allow her to lose weight for fear someone else will want her.
When Kim and Clint prepare for the holidays, food is the main focus. “The holidays – Clint says no diets, no workouts. It’s all about eating what he wants,” Kim says. “Every holiday, Clint says, ‘Bring out your fat clothes,’ and I say, ‘We are wearing our fat clothes.'”
Kim, who use to be a size 8 says, “I know I can say no to the food, but I wouldn’t want to, because my husband would probably have real issues.”
Clint agrees that his wife could lose a few pounds and he supports her decision, but also says he only wants her to lose “some” weight, not too much, and only for health purposes.
This really sounds like a form of abuse and very selfish on Clint's part. I think from here on out, if a man tries to feed you when you don't want to be fed, it should be added to the list of things to be very careful of, because it could mean he's trying to fatten you up so nobody else will want you!
