    Explain it's for health reasons, not necessarily a weight loss issue. You could also approach the 'more time together' and 'bonding' side of it. The fact that it will give her more energy too.

    Failing that, if she doesn't want to there's not a great deal you can do.

    I agree with Dirtyvest on this one, use the bonding angle. Explain how its something you really enjoy and that you want share it with your favourite person (your wife!) or something along those lines.

    Just say : 'Can you show some interest to what I do? I would really appreciate it. I enjoy going to the gym and I want you to be also interested in it'

    This is what my boyfriend says to me and it works. I feel that I have to show him interest in that.

    There is one way around this problem mate and its a dead cert to work

    Go to the travel agent and book a hoilday some where speical not your normal spain or like some where exotic my wife toned down for Barbados and looked great

    And yes what an improvment in sex life there was

    Just think you will get a nice holiday tooo

    If this dont work well i would give up and just love her as she is
