I see the guy every day so it shouldn't be shocking but actually seeing the words... And his weight! He is exactly 3 times my weight.

I never thought I'd end up with someone like this. He was a good looking guy when we met.

Being fat is a destructive cycle for him. It makes him depressed, which makes him eat more. It has destroyed his sex drive. It has ruined his joints so it is nearly impossible for him to exercise. It has resulted in him needing to take multiple medications everyday.

Does it make him a "bad" person? No. But it contributes to him being a bad partner.

Talk to him and make him talk to a doctor.

Sounds like there is some deep satisfaction that eating gives him that he can't seem to find elsewhere?

Diet, exercise, moderation... Oh, and getting yourself into a mental state where that is achievable. Easy, right?!

If your insurance covers dietician visits I highly suggest making an appointment. My husband is not severely overweight,but he's struggled for years to drop the excess. Started seeing a dietician,worked up an eating plan-what he's struggled for years to drop he's now been dropping easily just by a change in how much and when he eats,increasing some things like veggies and water intake and monitoring his intake of fat,salt,dairy,carbs.

He has gone to dietitians, and we went on sparkpeople together. I cook healthy meals, pack him lunch everyday. But he eats insane portions, drinks every night, and eats crap at work.

Like any other addiction, he has to decide to make the change. All of the support in the world is useless until he decides he can't live like this any longer.

She can help him all she can, but until he decides the make the change, it likely won't matter.
