Our expert says:
I feel for you and your hubby who really needs to look facts in the eye about his weight. Unfortunately the only person on earth who can take the decision to do something about his weight is your husband. Sit him down and tell him that you are concerned that he is going to die because of his overweight and that it is now up to him to do something about this problem - you need to step away because he may enjoy all the care and worry you are lavishing on him. Try a bit of reverse psychology for a change. And get him to watch 'The Biggest Loser' - a TV programme that is aired on E-TV on Mondays at 8 pm - this should open his eyes. If he is so grossly overweight then he actually need to be treated by a team consisting of a physician and a dietitian. But first get him to take responsibility for his own problem.
