My husband is a big guy and hes wanted to lose weight for a while. Well now Ive been doing my healthy eating and working out I tried involving him in it too and he said he doesnt like to be pressured to do something, so I dropped it. But I think the real problem is hes afraid of trying and not losing anything. For a while there he did eat better and he was more active and he gained 5 in like a week and he got really frustrated and hasnt tried since. I dont want to bring it up and make him feel bad or anything but I worry about his health and if we both do it it'll be so much easier, not to mention the grocery bill would go down significantly if we didnt have to buy seperate food for ourselves.
But I dont know what to do, I think hes a little jealous because Im doing something and its working for me. Every week when I tell him how much Ive lost he says "good job" but he looks kinda sad. I want to help him but he isnt letting me, should I drop it and just keep doing my own thing or should I try some other approach to it?
