I just saw a sparkfriend of mine had written a blog about this. The suggestions in the comment sections were all about continuing what she was doing, making healthy changes in herself, and one day, perhaps her husband would join her.
Sometimes, we are a leader by example.
Also, he may not know how important it is. Maybe mentioning off-handedly how the changes you are making are making you feel, talking positively about your new changes, will spark an interest in him as well? Does he wish to start a family too, at this point? Maybe pointing out, if he does, that his health effects the chances of conceiving, and the health of the baby as well.
And maybe when you have those days when you wish to 'complain' if your plan is not going well, or you are tired of counting calories or exercising, vent your feelings on here instead of to him.
Just keep doing what you are doing, and he may join in one day. Unfortunately, we can't change anyone but ourselves, but if you are the one who does the cooking, you know you can influence the eating he does at least at home.
It may take time, but your influence may help!

The Christian ideal has not been tried and found wanting; it has been found difficult and left untried.
How many observe Christís birthday! How few, his precepts! O! ĎTis easier to keep holidays than commandments.
