wow, definitely sounds like she has some issues! Unlike your girlfriend, i am severely overweight and yes it does affect your self esteem. But I can't imagine letting it ruin a great holiday, or even worse, ruining someone else's! It's all about feeling confident on the inside - the outside is totally irrelevant. I'm not saying that you always have to feel strong and proud (cause I don't), but at the very least, I will do everything I can to make the best of it. doesn't sound like your girlfriend enjoyed herself at all. what a shame.
