Ok, this is been on going in my home for many years.
When my met my husband he was a heavy smoker and very thin man, he weighed less than I did :eek:
Anyways, when I became pregnant with our first child I made it very clear that he would not be allowed to smoke in the home, car or around the child, so he decided to give it up and he did
But, he gained weight, at least 60 pounds to his very short frame, maybe more, he won’t let me know what his weight is anymore.
Anyways, stroke, high blood pressure and diabetes run in his family and my husband just turned 40 in June and he finally went in for a physical after me prodding for over five years :eek:
He has high blood pressure and the doc put him on pills to lower it.
I know my husband needs to lose weight but he just doesn’t care, he eats when he wants, whatever he wants, anytime he wants without thinking about it
Now, I love my husband regardless of his size, if he could remain over weight and be healthy I would not even care but I know all too well from his family history that this will not be o.k.
I’m so worried that he will have a heart attack or stroke, I’ve tried EVERYTHING to get him to lose some weight and take better care of himself but he gets so defensive, no matter how gently and lovingly I talk to him about it he gets just weird and says I don’t love him for who he is, and that really is not the truth, I’m very worried about him, his dad had 15 strokes in five years and it killed him and his mom has diabetes and several of his siblings have already had heart issues.
What can I do? Anything? Just shut my mouth and say nothing? What would you do if you were in my shoes?
I love my husband and I just want him to be healthy.
Please help .
