This is not to bash my husband at all. I love him so much and am attracted to him no matter what. But about 2 months ago, he had to go to the doctor for a minor knee problem and he was told he falls in the category of Obese. The doctor also recommended he get tested for type 2 diabetes. This absolutely terrified me. I knew he was overweight, but he's really tall...6'4...and never really thought it an issue. He's an ex college football player so I always just assumed his body type big. Either way, we've been trying to be healthier. But the other day I took his car to the store and noticed alot of candy bar wrappers, and fast food bags under his seat.
I really want to discuss this with him because I'm concerned about him and want him to be healthy. Any suggestions on how to lightly bring this up? He's the kindest guy I know and don't want to hurt him at all.

Tell him "Honey I found junk food in your car & I'm very concerned about your health, I want you to please take care of yourself because I wouldn't want anything to happen to you I don't know what I would do without you I love you so much" then try & cry (which us women are experts at doing lol) that should get to him & I'm sure he will try his best to take care of himself, I did that to my DH & he is trying a day at a time to eat better, it's harder for men to eat a salad or a fruit or veggies then it is for us women we love those things men in the other hand it's a little more difficult, just be a little patient & try to make his meals take control of his food intake. GL!

Has he been tested? 'Cause Type 2 is a bigger deal than people think and it will mess with you unless you take it seriously and make some changes. Tell him you want him to have a long, HEALTHY life with you. Yes, I would confront him abut the food/candy wrappers. He needs the wake up call and to know that you're watching and looking out for his best interests. (I'm a Type 2 myself)
