I love my husband so much he really is the love of my life. But when I got pregnant I put on 70lbs and my husband put on 75lbs. He has always been a bit heavier but now its over the top and I love him but I don't find him attractive at the monent. I feel shallow even mentioning it. I have tried getting him to go for walks and eating better but hes really not interested. What do I do? What do I do about how I feel? Its making it hard to have sex but I'm not hot either I haven't lost a tun of weight either. I don't know I'm all over the place with this. Has anyone eles had this problem with thier husbands? What are you doing to deal with it?

My husband gained quite a bit of weight with our first child. However, as he is in the military, he HAD to lose the weight to get back into regs. How long has it been since you had the baby? Are you breastfeeding? It takes time, although breastfeeding will help burn calories. As far as your husband, lead by example. Buy good food. Limit the buying of "junk" food so that when at home, your husband has healthy choices. Start going for walks (weather permitting) and invite your husband to join you. Hopefully, he'll come around.
