Same here. I've even tried guilt..."I want us to grow old together, etc."

I've used science, begging, not buying it, not serving it, "by example" and simple reason....still no luck.
My DH is not obese but he has put on a good 30 lb since college and his doctor has said he should lose a little and definitely should not gain more. He happily eats what I serve but takes the tiniest portions of veggies and larger portions of any protein or starch. I do make only healthy things and I have limited my baking to once a month, but he eats many meals away from home and I cannot do anything about that. He goes running a few times a week and he started doing that after I began working out--it took a couple of years so maybe in a few years he will start eating better.
Just from experience, I think the "by example" works the best of all the strategies.
For you to be here now, trillions of drifting atoms had somehow to assemble in an intricate and intriguingly obliging manner to create you. It's an arrangement so specialized and particular that it has never been tried before and will only exist this once.
