Ashamed of big bloke
QMy fella’s always been on the large side but lately he’s ballooned to 23st. On holiday last month, he needed a seat-belt extender on the plane.
I felt so ashamed and I spoke to him about his weight. I asked if he’d join a gym with me, but he just laughed.
How do I make him see he needs to change? Laura, 45
AWe can lead a horse to water but we can’t make it drink. No amount of body shaming or bullying him will change your man’s mind if he doesn’t want to lose the weight.
Have you told him you love him and that you’re worried? Choose your words wisely. Tell him that you want him in your life for as long as possible – hopefully this will make him see his extra weight really is no laughing matter.
