Belly fat is super dangerous for men! Is he getting regular health check-ups? If he’s not motivated to keep that in check, maybe he needs his doctor to scare him a bit!

Mr. KM recently lost 40 pounds and it has done him a world of good. Granted, he’s only 25 but still. Get Mr. Bluespurrs to the doctor STAT! And have him scare him a little bit. We’ve been trying that with my dad for years but we don’t think the doctor is scaring him bad enough. Pull out the big guns!

Belly fat is so much more dangerous than people tend to think. Not only is there a layer of fat under the skin but there is dangerous visceral fat creeping around and surrounding his vital organs. This can lead to all kinds of nasty things like cancer 🙁 I agree with the above posters and have him taken to a doctor so he can learn what kind of danger he is really in!

If you can convince your husband to do a physical, his doctor might give him some more motivation/help in terms of losing weight.  I know my husband was diagnosed with diabetes at a routine check-up and it motivated him to lose 50 pounds and totally change his habits.  A year later, he’s a million times healthier and happier, which is awesome.  Hopefully, checking in with his doctor will help your husband feel like he needs to take his health more seriously.

My FI’s stomach I named Buddha…lol.  His problem is that he thinks it’s muscle, but really it’s in that stage before the fat starts to droop.  If it sticks out as far as it does, it’s fat, not muscle, but he doesn’t get that.  He is starting to look like his father–and I told him when we first met that if he let his health get that out of control I would leave him….starting to stress!  I don’t want to marry someone that doesn’t care to take care of themselves!  We want kids–I don’t want them to lose their father at a young age–his father is in his early 50’s and not doing well at all, and he’s following in his footsteps.

A shopping trip to try on new clothes may do the trick.  Those fitting rooms are never forgiving!

Is there anyway that he can pack healthy meals with your help for when he’s on the road if that’s where he does his worst eating? Could you start a daily routine that you do together…like going for a walk?
