I am a 40-something, reasonably healthy, yet significantly-overweight woman. I am a professional writer, currently writing content for a state government website.

I have three dogs - they're all Newfoundlands - and three cats. I just acquired the 3rd - a little black kitten named Tinker.

I am a show dog mom - taking my Newfies to shows locally and around the country as time and budget allow. This means weekends of lots of running around, but very little structured eating. This is my challenge more than anything else. Trying to eat healthily while on the road and in places that don't serve the healthiest food.

husband likes me fat
My ex-boyfriend actually tried to prevent me from losing weight by buying all kinds of crap food - even when I asked him to stop! I see now that it was his way of controlling me. I'm not saying that your DH is that way, but being as independent as I am, I'm of the mind that it's up to me what I want to do with my body - and no one else has the right to sabotage me.

Tell him that it will make *you* feel better, healthier and sexier (it will), and he, in turn, will reap the rewards. Wink
