Is my boyfriend obsessed with road cycling? He has only a 26” waist!

He weighed himself in front of me yesterday and he weighs 10 stone and 2 pounds. I checked a BMI calculator and he’s at the lower end of the scale when it comes to being considered a healthy weight.

He told me that he couldn’t imagine himself being any heavier and that he wouldn’t allow it to happen anyway. Is it normal to want to stay a certain weight? I mean, I don’t think the same way as he does, but I don’t think I would be happy if I put on any weight. I don’t think he’s weird to want to stay a certain weight.

Do you know any other guys who are the same size waist as you are?

The reason I’m asking you is because I can’t think of any other guy who is the same or near enough the same height and weight as my boyfriend. I do know guys who are slim, but not 6ft or thereabouts and a 26” waist.

I know that you are 5’9 so the average height for a man, but do people ever make comments about your weight? Do you get stared at by strangers?
