  • I support him when he wants to work out, I encourage him to do more things that are active even if it involves the kids. I bought him a camelback for a Christmas present so he can get out there more.

  • I let him go to the gym. ;) My husband is in the Army (so doing PT every morning) and has been a gym rat for years. He doesn't really need my help to stay fit.

  • I helped him lose a whole person. I left him. =)

    (and no, it wasn't due to weight) ;)

  • Try to support him. Make healthier food, exercise with him, etc.

  • Honestly, it is hard. I have tried to "help" my husband over the years, but it is really not easy because when I tell him he should not be eating a certain thing, or try to help him control his portions, sometimes he gets mad at me for picking at him. It is not that I am trying to pick at him, but help him, but he sees it differently when there is something he really wants and I tell him he shouldn't because it is totally off his diet. OH well...
