DEAR REDBOOK READER:

You ladies are much more focused on your weight than your guys are. I hear stories every now and then about a dude who gives gives his wife static when she gains weight, but those guys are what normal guys call "jerks," and they are in the minority. The truth is, I don't notice when Karel gains weight (she wears it very well) nor do I notice when she drops weight, which occasionally lands me in hot water.

Bottom line: Looking healthy (vitally important) is hot, so if your average weight is healthy, and you feel good about yourself, five or ten pounds doesn't make a bit of difference.
