Our expert says:
A study conducted in the UK a few years ago found that men in general do not like the group approach which works so well for women through organisations like Weight Watchers. The problem is that your hubby may feel embarrassed to be weighed in front of other people. You can only talk to him and tell him that you understand that he is shy of being seen by the group, but that there are many other participants who are in the same boat. You could also ask the group monitors or counsellors if one of them would meet with your hubby on his own to explain the benefits of losing weight and the advantages of having some proof that he is losing weight. This may persuade him to at least allow you to measure him so that you can provide him with proof of weightloss to encourage him.
I sincerely hope that your hubby gets over his negative attitude and achieves good weightloss.
