My dh is helpful as far as exercise. He will walk and do weights with me..play badminton with me and the kids, etc. He is bad as far as dieting goes though. He is trying to gain weight, he's 6ft and weighs 137. He has actually gained 2lbs..he did weigh 135. He wants to eat fried chicken, burgers, fries and stuff all the time. I finally told him that when he brings that stuff home, the boys want to eat it too and I don't want it in my house anymore.
A combination of both--he's very thin, eats well and will be active with me, but sometimes he can be very hard on me and make me feel guilty because I am a very picky eater and have no desire to exercise after Troy goes to bed--I am not a huge fruit/veggie fan and I prefer to exercise first thing, but with Troy it's hard since he's very inconsistent with what time he gets up.
I am going to say helpful. We actually have a team thing going. He motivates me and helps me when it comes to exercise...and I motivate him and help him when it comes to eating healthy. We are each others help depending on the situation
a little bit of both. he is fairly helpful when it comes to the diet part - cuz he is dieting too (counting calories)
but not too helpful when it comes to exercising - i can't get him to do any kind of exercise - not even walks. when he gets home he just wants to shower and veg out.
He loves to go for walks, but won't run, so I almost feel like I'm being held back from getting *more* exercise. I finally convinced him to come kayaking with me this summer and against his better judgment he had a fabulous time and wants to do it all the time now which is good. BUT, if there is a major golf tournament on TV (which seems to be all the time), it's hard to get him away from it.
On the food end of things, he eats too many potato chips and soda, but those things don't tempt me, so it doesn't hold me back, but they're not good for him. Neither of us eat enough fruit and veggies (we're both fairly picky).
I think the worst thing is that our timing is off and we don't seem to motivate eachother. If I am wanting to exercise and push him too much, he gets mad. If he wants to exercise, it motivates me to exercise also, but we rarely agree on what we're going to do for exercise.
