So, I'm looking for ideas to help me motivate my husband. He and I both lost a bunch of weight on our first round of Atkins a few years ago. The good news is I've kept it all off (although still more to go), but the bad news is that he didn't. The last year or so, he's been completely off plan -- I'm talking cookies almost every day at lunch, etc. Needless to say, he's gained it all back. I'm actually more worried about his health than mine (he has a history of heart disease in his family). We recently moved to a new city and both changed jobs, which caused a lot of stress, and apparently he's coped with cookies.
So, I think he's ready (or close to ready) to have a serious New Year's resolution. So, how do I motivate him without being excessively naggy? We had an argument recently where he said I was nagging ( I was trying to get him to go workout with me, he "didn't feel like it.") I said I'd rather be a nag than a widow.
Anyway, I'm already feeding us healthy foods at home, and setting an example by regularly exercising myself ( or trying to). The one thing I know about him is that he won't do anything he doesn't want to...so...
How do I make him want to get on plan on stay on plan...and exercise? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!!!
