Welcome to WOW. Body images. It seems in today's society if you don't look anerexic you're heavy. That's a really sad image to live up to. The wonderful thing about being a woman young or slightly more mature is that we should be comfortable with who we are.
Granted if that image is really obese then check with your dr & see what can be done. If you're 5 / 10#s over that's not obese.
After reading some of these blogs there is a pattern, if your boyfriend is making fun of your love handles.. making sounds etc then it's time to sit him down. Let him know how it's affecting you. He may not realize it but, that too is a form of abuse/ control. It's makes you uncomfortable. Let him know it's time to stop it.

Good luck.
