Dear Baxter,

My husband and I have been together for 5 years and married for three.  Recently, I joined a gym to get myself back in shape and to the weight I was when we met.  The problem is, while I'm trying to better myself, my husband lays on the couch and inhales food like crazy.  What can I do?

You must create a desire for him to lose weight.  Has he heard that for every 20 pounds he loses that his "love rocket" will increase an inch in length?   If that doesn't work, just take comfort in that, the fatter he gets the thinner you will look.  Hopes this helps.
