Don't say anything.

Just ogle skinny chicks, and make sure she sees you doing it.

Trust me, She already knows.

There is no way to approach this well.

"Honey I got you a present..... It is a year long Jenny Craig membership!!!" Then run.

Seriously tho. If you cant talk about it honestly. You may be cruisin for a breakup. I find it is best to use the band-aid method. Communicate it " quickly and effectively" and drop it, If she will not fix it, Bail.

Now there is an approach
Link Posted: 3/5/2006 12:26:31 AM EDT
Tell her that you love her and if you mean it the weight won't matter.
Link Posted: 3/5/2006 12:27:32 AM EDT
Start working out, go on jogs or bike rides, and ask her to join you.
Link Posted: 3/5/2006 12:27:34 AM EDT
Tell her you think YOU need to lose a few pounds, she will probably tell you she needs to too, the NEXT step is the hard one(doing it)

Otherwise there is no real effective way to address the problem without a nuclear aftermath.

Get in the bed and tell her to move her fatass over.
Link Posted: 3/5/2006 12:34:45 AM EDT
I now weigh 5 lbs less then I did at 20.

My body is WAY better too.

I put myself together, because I wanted to.

She has to want to put it together, you just can't make her.

Link Posted: 3/5/2006 12:36:41 AM EDT
Hey, I want to join this new gym and they have a family deal. Why dont you go with me?

Or if you pay me enough money I will tell her she needs to lose weight.
Link Posted: 3/5/2006 12:40:25 AM EDT
Say this, "Let’s get in shape so we can wear our bathing suits at the beach for our vacation". Of course you'll have to take her to a beach sooner or later. But just work out together and eat right together. The key word being, together.

That is very true, best point so far.

Buy a large ham, have her cook it, as she is cooking going to kitchen and say"I love you honey" and kiss the ham and walk out

start your own workout regimen, then see if she wants to come along. Make it fun for her too, not just lifting weights.


If she still doesn't want to fix herself, and you're not liking the cow she's becoming, then it's time to reevaluate your relationship.

Work it off of her.
Link Posted: 3/5/2006 2:23:01 AM EDT
What a dilemna, there really isn't any way to come out on top of this without hurting her feelings somehow. Yes, she already knows. But, if you bring it up or say anything about it, she will feel twice as bad.

Only thing that is going to change her is her own free will to improve her health for herself.

My only suggestion would be to start doing the shopping and only buy the good stuff. No potato chips, etc. Good luck, bro.

Its posts JUST LIKE THIS that remind me why I see so many "Getting a divorce" threads on Arfcom.

If you cant overlook the fact your girl put on a few pounds........

40lbs is not "a few pounds."

It's moved beyond an "attractiveness" problem into the realm of "health problem." Anyone who won't take care of himself/herself physically is bound to have OTHER problems that you won't like.

You are so screwed..... Have your girlfriend read this post. If she dosnt kill you, it will motivate her.
Link Posted: 3/5/2006 3:13:31 AM EDT

Many, many people who post in this thread are going to burn in hell.


BTW, are you in pretty decent shape yourself? Make sure you are walking the walk before you bring it up to her.

Link Posted: 3/5/2006 3:21:39 AM EDT
Tell her you want to go on a diet to lose a few pounds but it would be easier if you didnt do it alone. You can even suggest that if she's eating the bad stuff that she does it somewhere you dont watch. It'll make her think about joining in on the "fun" of the diet.

My wife and I both lost 40lbs about 2 years ago doing that.

( we both gained back 40 too!)
