We all want a hot husband or wife with rock hard abs and a perky butt. But this is not about aesthetics, I am genuinely concerned for my loved ones health. What do I do? How can I help?
In the title “My wife is fat”, the word “wife” can be changed to: Husband, best friend, brother, or sister. How do I motivate my loved one to lead a healthier lifestyle? What has to happen in their lives for that light bulb to come on?
I’ve been on a workout/clean eating schedule for a while now. (I wasn’t always this way… more on that later). So, I give them a few workouts and nutrition tips. They do it for a week or so, they lose 5lbs and then lose motivation again. It’s so frustrating to hear them complain about they’re weight or how they look. All I want to say is, “DON’T YOU DARE COMPLAIN, BECAUSE YOURE NOT DOING ANYTHING ABOUT IT” Nobody needs a special pancakes and bacon breakfast every weekend. (Try a special fruit salad and egg white omelet breakfast) … and on a selfish note it’s really frustrating that I can’t go kayaking with my husband because he can’t get in the kayak and I can’t do a local 5K with my best friend because she won’t even try, and has every excuse on the planet for not trying. “I mean they give you beer at the end of the race, how much motivation do you need!!!!!”, all I want is a mud-all-over-our-faces picture with my BFF… is that too much to ask?!?!? I want to share these beautiful moments with my loved ones.
It was a knee injury which was the light bulb moment for my hubby. An injury t happened; the light bulb moment could have been: heart disease, a stroke, infertility, high blood pressure, diabetes, cancer, sleep apnea, just to name a few.
Less than a year later, he’s 60 lbs. lighter, shoulders like a football player, he’s able to go up and down the stairs with out any problems and is healthier, in every scene of the word.… he still hasn’t joined me in the kayak, but he will very soon, at the rate he’s going.
We don’t want to hurt our loved ones’ feelings, but by not telling them the truth, I think we’re hurting them more. Xoxo- The Home Fry
