  • Well i would start by saying"man did i shrink those pants".. LOL No just kidding.. I had to go about this very carefully... it will take awhile before he even gos there... you will have to bring it up.. but say something light about it... ask him to go walk with ya, make a joke about your weight and see if he will give an opening for you to through something in about him...

  • Start walking together! I've put on a ton of weight and so has my husband. I've been working on it for 3 1/2 months now- but my husband isn't too on bored. So we've started walking together. It's not much, but you have to get started some where.

  • When you call him to dinner holler "SU EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE, Come pig" That should get his attention. Ok, that's mean. Suggest you work out together.
