Helping loved ones lose weight

I need some advice. How do you go about helpng a loved one (spouse) lose weight. Actually, helping is the easy part, but convincing her that she needs to lose weight. Of course no one wants to hear about their flaws, but being over weight can be such a health risk not to mention that it's tough on self convidence.

My wife and I have been married about a year and she has always been a bit over weight. She lost about 25 lbs one time and she looked great. Unfortunately she gained it all back plus some. I just want to convince her that it is important that she loses the weight again. Of course I am a little selfish in my tactics since I would like her to look better, but either way any advice for how to go about it?

Re: Helping loved ones lose weight

You should start a exercise program on your own, and then mention to her how good you feel why you do it, and if she wants to keep you company while you work out. Etc....

I don't think that it is really a good idea to push someone into doing stuff that they aren't ready to do on their own.
