I think you said it all Gayle. They don't understand cause their built different and they don't usually gain weight until their metabolism slows down. My DH has had sales and office jobs the last few years and has gained 70#. Now what he use to do when he put on a few #'s is eat salads and skip breakfast for a week. Sure enough he would lose 20#'s in 2 weeks. Well guess what your body is different at 32 than it was at 25. He is now seeing why I excercise. But he has done no work to figure out why he eats(BOREDOM) so I know even if he loses weight he won't keep it off.
I wrote to offer sympathy and talked about my DH! My heart goes out to you Gayle!
