Mike could care less about how much I weigh. He could stand to lose some weight but doesn't care about it at all. He's very secure in his body image like that. His biggest thing is going out to eat or bringing me home candy. Glad he thinks of me but I am trying to get him out of that habit. Its on rare occasion he'll work out with me and that's only happened a handful of times. I know I am responsible for my weight and my weight loss but he doesn;t seem to help either way. He's not one to discourage me but not one to really encourage me either. He can go either way like that. He's a great guy but I would rather he be more helpful than innocently sabotage me like he does from time to time. Gotta love em!

I have to remember to stop and think.

Ron could stand to lose 5-10 lbs, but that's about it. He can eat anything & everything he wants with little bodily harm - I can look at a bowl of chip & dip & gain 2 lbs easily! We both love to eat and we're pretty active. Since I got a new bike last week, Friday night he got a used one & we're hoping to start riding together... we use to ride our motorcycles in the woods together before we had kids. We both enjoy exercising together, but with two kids it's easier to divide & conquer!

Well, I don't have a lot of input on this subject. My husband is supportive of me and my goals but doesn't really encourage or motivate me. He will offer me ice cream, cookies, etc. just like he is eating, forgetting all about my goals.

I try to motivate him but he hates exercise. The most I get from him is a walk around the block (at least it's something). He will eat anything I fix (healthy foods) but also have ice cream afterwards.

The funny things is that we met 15 years ago in an aerobics class. We were SO healthy and fit when we met. I would love to be back in that shape.

I'm sure others will have some good ideas. Good luck to you!

I was thinking today about how Joe is such a good support system. He is like my biggest cheerleader. He gives me compliments and is just awesome.

He however always wants to eat out and eat sweets. So I want to eat that type of food too. He also does not want to workout with me or anything of the sort - unless of course it is biking or golf.

He needs to lose some weight so it really sucks that he isnt more engaged. I also can't figure out how to get him motivated to work out.

How does your husband motive you? How do you motivate them?
