I am going through the exact same thing w/ my fiance.  He keeps complaining that he wants to get into shape for the wedding, and I don’t think he realized how quickly these next 5 months are going to go by!   Finally last weekend I was able to persuade him to go down the the gym w/ me (I was VERY relentless).  And afterwards he said "Wow!  I feel really great!"   He’s been a couple of times this week now so hopefully he can keep that going.

I think you may be surprised at how fast some men can lose weight.  To help my husband, I’ve substituted one of his meals with a salad that I make for him.  So for instance I may pack him lunch a few days out of the week, put some romaine lettuce, an egg, half an advocado, and salmon in a bowl for him to eat.  If I don’t do it for lunch, I make him a salad for dinner.  He’s been doing this for about 3 weeks now and everyone is noticing a difference.  I might add that he does not go to the gym…but this "healthier" way of eating has really helped him shed some pounds.

i went through the same thing with my FI. he was at an unhealthy weight but insisted he was working out so he was "healthy." he finally went to the doctor to get a blood test and found out that his triglycerides and cholesterol were sky-high. i’d strongly recommend your FI going to get a physical and talking to a doctor. sometimes seeing those high numbers (if they’re high – they might not be) can be a good reality check.

my FI ended up losing 50 pounds, about 20 of which he lost in the first 6 weeks. he was already working out for 90 minutes every other day, and he dropped his caloric intake to 1600 calories a day, too. writing down what he eats/drinks and how many calories are in it for a couple of weeks will probably be a good way for him to get a handle on his food intake. calorieking.com is a good resource for looking up how much is in certain things. my FI also increased his water intake. i could do that and maybe lose 5 pounds, but the majority of his weight just melted off of him. he’s not a stick figure now, but he’s much healthier and happier. also, he got to see those numbers in his bloodwork drop.

good for your FI for wanting to be healthier, and good for you for setting a good example – it’s a lot easier to lead a healthy lifestyle if your partner is, too.
