He’s my husband.
Y’all, my husband really, really needs to lose weight. The problem is that he doesn’t seem to be motivated to do anything about it. I am worried about his health. I’ve begged, pleaded, suggested . . . nothing seems to work. I cook about as healthily as I possibly can without being a food nazi and I don’t keep many snacks in the house anymore.
I love the man, honest I do, honest I do, honest I do. Sorry – where was I? Oh yes, I love him. But in all honesty, and I can’t believe I’m even putting this out there, I am not all that attracted to larger physiques. I wish he would lose weight – for himself and for me.
Am I wrong? I always hear women talking about how their husbands should love them as they are, they put on weight because of the babies, etc., etc. I know I should support my sisters, but really, I’ve always agreed with the husbands on this one. It might not be easy, but I think you should try to maintain the physique you had when you attracted and married your spouse. Now, I’m not going to lie – I am a size bigger than I was when I met Smoochy almost 15 years ago. I was a 10 in college, now I’m a 12. I work out, and think I’m in pretty good shape – I do need to tone back up, but I haven’t gone to the extreme in either direction.
I’m not expecting physical perfection from Smoochy, he’s always been big – I just want him to get back to a more . . . agreeable size.
I’m thinking I should just leave it alone and up his insurance policy. Seriously. Is this one of those things where “until he’s ready, it doesn’t matter what anyone else says?”
Has anyone ever told you that you needed to lose weight? How did you take it? Have you ever told anyone that they needed to shape up? What was their response?
