I finally badgered DH enough to join the gym....so we joined the YMCA last week. Unfortunately, I came down with my 3rd illness of the month (complete with fever), so I haven't gone yet, other than to fill out the Health Profile and see all the machines...oh, and DD and I went for a swim.

DH has been 100% against going..I have NO clue why. A few years ago, he started lifting weights, and went to the gym every other day. He lost about 40-50 pounds.

When I begged him for us to join the gym, he flat out refused to go. Said there was nothing wrong with him, or his body. He's 6'4 and about 360 pounds...I think last time I did his BMI, it was 42 or 43?

Well, finally tonight, I told him I thought I would feel well enough to go to the gym tomorrow morning. He said he'd get off work at 8 am and MAYBE join me!

I'm SO happy!

Yay!! My DH wasn't ready to lose his weight until he was ready. This spring after being with him for 8 years, he decided it was time and he's lost 140lbs so far. He'll do it when he's ready. I hope you're feeling better!

Lucky mother to five!
