My Husband Is Packing On The Pounds…
How Can I Help?
Thanks for the great website – it’s my new favorite daily addiction!
Okay my question isn’t about kids – it’s about my husband, Tony. We’ve been married for 9 years now (we’re in our mid-thirties) and Tony is really starting to pack on the pounds.
When we married he weighed 190… but now he’s up to 260 and climbing.
I keep myself in good shape and am a keen runner and yoga fan. I nag Tony all the time about his weight but he doesn’t seem to want to change – he says he’s tired from the kids and work and doesn’t have time to exercise. Plus he eats really badly when he’s not at home.
I think he’s given up and get annoyed when friends comment on his expanding waistline….
How can I get my old Tony back?

But let’s be honest, it’s also unfair because you work hard to keep your shape not to mention, you probably wouldn’t mind a little of the old, sexy Tony back.
So here’s what I would suggest:
