    Yeah, but, a little Chippy is good for the mental health of the consumer!

    Knowing the fall is going to hurt rarely stops me from jumping.

    This is the best answer and I think it would be the less dangerous approach.

    You just need to say it in a complimentary way: "you sure don't sweat much for a fat girl".

    Easy, say "I'm fat as **** and feel like **** and need to eat better. I'm way fatter than you, but you use to be skinny. I need to get healthier, will you do it with me? It will help you too."

    Easy peasy imo. But I'm not very vane. I care more about how she feels (physically) than looks. It might not work the same way if you have a different dynamic.

    If you have to tell a spouse to lose weight you need to look in a mirror. They are not trophies and forgive me but superficial relationship comes to mind.

    No straight lines!


    But seriously, they're could be worse things.
    My lovely cannot keep her weight, due to the cancer. She eats seven meals a day and is barely starting to maintain, after losing 16 pounds she didn't need to lose.

    Thank you!
    God is good!
    She is responding to treatment which is keeping it from growing, though there is no cure. No surgery or radiation can help.
    She is a trooper and a shining light wherever she is.
    It can always be worse.
