If my wife complains about her weight but refuses to exercise, eat healthy, or just accept it, what can I do?

If my wife complains about her weight but refuses to exercise, eat healthy, or just accept it, what can I do? Topic: Do all the sister wives work
June 20, 2019 / By Rheta
Question: First off I want to say that my wife is NOT fat. I accept her for who she is and I told her that 100,000,000 times; but as you women know, once your mind is made up about how you feel about someone or something, no man on Earth can change your mind... So with that said, I need help convincing my wife to do something about her weight since it's not going to shed itself away... So here's the deal: my wife has all the time in the world to join her (heavier than her) girlfriends at the gym but chooses to be home and unproductive instead. Now she can't use the excuse she works too hard on house chores because I'm an at home dad (due to partial paralyzing back injury) and she doesn't have to lift a finger. I also make the meals since I'm the at home parent with 2 kids, and when I make healthier meals she tries to unhealthy it up with high caloric dressings and drinking a high caloric soda pop with it. My wife also refuses to just eat less (not stop eating) and she has "snacks" between every meal; "snacks" are acceptable if she wants to lose weight, but the types of "snacks" she grabs aren't (chips, cookies, treats, etc)... You can't call it "depression" because I make her life a small piece of heaven by me doing all the work!!! I think she just doesn't want to be responsible about her weight because she's in denial that her teenage metabolism is gone (she was a size 0 when I met her and now she's a 9 - which I still think looks good but she doesn't) and I think the fact she has a fear of sweating/stinking she refuses to exercise because of that... So I know there's nothing **** I **** can do about this because it's HER problem, but she just complains that she's not as skinny as her sister and then she does nothing about it and I need your friendly advice on what I can say to her or do for her to get this exercise program going!!! Money IS an issue and we can't afford the gyms with daycare, so either she has to go with girlfriends, or we would need to find a babysitter (and a gym that has exercise equipment that won't screw with my back); so let's just assume she has to do this on her own but with my moral support (which she isn't receptive to since it sounds like she wants to lose weight for competitive reasons and not because of health).

to be honest with you, I would just tell her to knock it off. She is being spoiled and a little self- interested. She is insecure and she's looking for compliments and I HATE when people do that, it's unfair and it makes her look bad. I know she is your wife but if she isn't doing to be an adult about any of this when why to to support her? She's just being lazy and don't wanna deal with it. It's not your job as not only her husband but a human being to tell her every day that she isn't fat. That's not your job..if she hates what she looks like she needs to make an effort to go on some walks maybe with the kids, a short run maybe, riding a bike and eating better is all it takes. I don't think it's okay what she is doing but your did marry her and you need to tell her to stop what she is doing and bring her down to reality because she is sounding like she doesn't care about anything but herself. I really hope it all gets better

Well, it sounds like she may be depressed. It's hard to deal with depression. You don't feel like doing anything or going anywhere. You just feel like there isn't a point. Next time she is complaining instead of giving her options to lose the weight try asking what she thinks will help. If she comes up with something she is more likely to do it. Be supportive try inviting one of your friends over for dinner or something and ask him to bring his wife or girlfriend. If she had friends around her she may not be so sad. I know for a fact not having any friends sucks. You need to find away to get her out and about. Don't let it get to much worse or she'll be in a full blown depression. I have lost just about everyone I now in the last couple years and it's really hard to deal when you don't have anyone to talk to. Good Luck. I hope this helps.

Sounds like you can't win for trying. She just wants to biatch, so just listen to what she says and leave it at that. If she won't help herself, there is definitely nothing you can do......

Easiest way to lose weight fast and safely is to cut your calorie intake by eating more on fiber, fruits and vegetables. You'll feel full with fewer calories on them. Fruits, vegetables and fibers are packed with nutrients but less on calories. I lost 10 pounds in just 2 months using these tips. Here are Tips to help speed up your metabolism plus help you lose weight without being miserable. they worked for me =) 1. Fill up on Fiber and Lose Weight Fast Fill up on Fiber - Foods rich in fiber will make you feel satisfied and help curb your appetite, helping you to lose weight fast and safely - so make sure to pack your diet with fruits, vegetables and whole grains. 2. Boost fat-burning metabolic rate by 50% by sipping coffee Sipping coffee before a meal can supress appetite by 35%, plus boost fat-burning metabolic rate by 50%, according to extensive research at Vanderbilt University in Nashville. The study-proven dose : 250 mg of caffeine daily, taken either in supplement form or by sipping to cups of coffee or 4 cups of tea. 3. Lose Weight just by eating Yogurt Yogurt is a calcium-rich food. Research links calcium with lower cortisol production, and it has been proven that women who increase they're intake lose up to 40% more weight than calcium avoiders. Plus Yogurt has live microorganisms which helps proper digetion and absorption of nutrients we take. Make sure to get yogurts that says "with live microorganisms in labels/packages". 4. Try this Hunger-Taming Trick Cut fat and you'll cut cravings. Consuming a high-fat diet may supress your body's natural satiety signals, according to a new study from Pennsylvania State University. Animals who'd been consuming a diet rich in fat ended up eating 40% more of a high-calorie snack than those on average diets. Keep your fat intake to less than 30% of total calories. 5. Feel full on less food. Apples are rich in pectin, a soluble fiber that slows the digestive process, so you'll feel full on less food.The result: You'll eat just enough food to make you happy, reducing calorie intake. 6. Studies suggest people pursuing a healthy weight could lose more weight and burn more fat by including 24 ounces a day of low fat or fat-free milk in their reduced-calorie diet, instead of 8 ounces or less. 7. Speed fat burn with Cranberries. The ascorbic acid in cranberries helps thin liver bile, making it easier for the organ to emulsify fat so so it can be quickly flushed out of the system rather than stored in cells. 8. Boost your protein intake and lose almost a pound a week without hunger. You can try protein smoothies. Packed with nutrients and low in calories, smoothies are a fast, easy and great tasting way to achieve good health. You can find a wide collection of healthy fruit smoothies at : http://fruitsmoothierecipe.bravehost.com By boosting your protein intake from the typical 15% of total calories to 30%, you may be able to cut your daily calorie intake by 440-enough to lose almost a pound a week without hunger, according to a recent University of Washigton study. "A high-protein diet appears to fool the brain into thinking you've eaten more than you have," says the study's lead author, Scott Weigle, M.D., a professor of endocrinology at the University of Washington School of Medicine. Stick with lean protein rather than high-fat, artery clogging meat and dairy products. For breakfast, use low-fat milk instead of water in your oatmeal and sprinkle nuts on top. Eat plenty of beans, fish and skinless chicken breast. 9. To counteract a binge, keep your body's fat-burning furnace running on full blast by drinking Green Tea. Green Tea contains caffeine and the antioxidant epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) , which is proven to boost metabolic rate. In fact, in a recent 3 month study, participants who took Green Tea extract lost 4.6% of their body weight without changing their diet. To get the benefit, drink at least 3 cups a day. Whenever I ate too much, I just drink green tea and I don't have to worry gaining weight. 10. Speed weight loss and double energy levels by eating Coconuts. This tropical treats contain medium-chain fatty acids (MCFAs), a unique fat that is shuttled straight to the liver and immediately burned for fuel. Research shows this little detour revs metabolic rate by up to 50%, speeding weight loss and doubling energy levels Plus my favorite tip : Before you eat, drink a glass of water. This will help you feel fuller without additional calories (water has no calories).
