DH NEEDS to lose weight. he has to lose 30lbs or 3inches off his waist. i've been pressing him to eat right, a certain amount of calories a day, and when he gets home i press him to get on the wii fit or the excercise bike. he gets on it sometimes, but when it comes to the eating he eats what he wants, doesn't even think of calories. when i press him about it (i did the talking thing a long time ago, pressing him is the last thing i wanted but it's what it's come to) all i hear is that he gets it from work every day, he doesn't want to come home and hear it too. to him, i'm supposed to be here to listen and support him. i AM supporting him, but doesn't that also consist of getting him to work out here? if he doesn't lose weight they could chapter him out, and we can't afford that. i'm so stressed and pissed right now...Answer Question

I assume he is aware he needs to lose the weight and he probably has no will power. I suggest you both check out the SparkPeople web site. It's free. He'll be able to keep track of his progress without you pressuring him.
Make small changes at first - replace beverages with water, bake, broil, and grill - no fried foods. What I found really helpful was after plates are filed with normal size portions at dinner - put all leftovers away before you sit down to eat.
Find exercises you can do together that don't feel like exercise - my favorite is dancing. Martial arts is another idea. Anything that gets the heart pumping burns calories. Playing basketball or indoor volleyball?
