    I have tried various ways to tell Mrs that she has a growth up front over the last month.

    Touching a bulge and saying "coming along nicely darling"--- ends up with ---
    WHAT? do you mean:Eeek:


    She asks , last week do I look ok in this --"it looks a bit tight darling" I said,--------" Oh OK , rub it in , don`t you." she said

    I want to help and suggest being overweight is no good for anyone , but how:Eeek:
    Is there a way without me being the enemy:cry:

    When out for a meal, if she had eaten too much she would use the phrase "my eyes are bigger than my belly"

    I would often assure here they were not.:Rofl1:

    She doesnt say it anymore, but they still not bigger.:Rofl1:

    Just put yourself in her shoes ,when she's being honest and complaining about your snoring,farting,drinking,untidiness etc does she hold back ?
    I doubt it ,tell her how it is ,after all they want us to feel we can talk to them about anything. :Wink:
    If your too scared keep asking her about water retention! :Rofl1::Rofl1:

    If you decide to tell her, just make sure that you are near perfect yourself.:Blush:


    If not, don't even think about it.:Smile:

    Look, your not going to win, get your will wrote out, put your affairs in order and prepare to die !!


    But to be fair, many people can put on weight easily and have bother losing it. Have you a dog ? Walking a dog can be great exercise. Maybe if you don't have a dog AND HAVE A LIFESTYLE WHERE YOU CAN LOOK AFTER A DOG, you could suggest to her that you fancy a dog and that you could both take it for walks.

    Or, look at the type of food you are both eating, if it is food which helps weight gain, you could say to her that in view of the recent news stories about "wrong" food, that YOU fancy eating more healthy food and would she fancy eating the same.

    Just be honest, when a woman says 'does this dress make me look fat',
    reply with 'no dear, your fat makes you look fat'......

    And then run!

    Sheila is quite slim, but often she will ask "does my bum look big in this"?

    I usually answer quite tactfully and point out that in relation to the sub-continent of India, it's actually quite modest in size. For some unknown reason, she seems to find this offensive, not sure why ?

    Absolutely not! She would gain another lb per day per cruise statistics and I can vouch for that. Ive just completed 2 cruises in 2 months and put on 1 stone 2 lbs...OUCH!!
    You need to make her think its her idea to slim!
