canadianmomtofour Posted September 4, 2012 Share Posted September 4, 2012 I was hoping to get some ideas from everyone here about how to help dh. He is approximately 70lbs overweight. He gained the weight after we started having children and has twice lost and re-gained 50lbs. He has just turned 44 and is now the heaviest he has ever been. I am afraid for his health. I am only 34 and I am terrified of losing my husband! The problem is, he is unable to lose the weight without a LOT of help from me. I have to essentially be his life coach. I tell him when and what to eat; how and when to excersize, and be his cheerleader. I've done this in the past, but now I am TIRED. Two of my kids have special neurological and medical needs, and I am homeschooling three of them this year. I don't have it in me to do it for him, but the alternative if I don't is scary. How do I motivate myself to motivate him? I could use some ideas for some fun, family activities to get him active. We like to cycle and can put the 4yo in the bike trailer and the 6yo on the tandem, but that only works in the summer months. He loves to play squash, but we would need babysitting for that. Help!
