Hi folks! Hope everything is OK with you guys and girls. I feel like I'm in deep shit. Over the years, my wife has been through several cycles of losing weight, only to gain it back. Her last effort was to work out in YMCA (persuading me to join the gym), but she developed back problems, so she stopped. She gets really focused when she is into this sort of thing, and I even get a bit nervous at how hard she works out, but then when things come crashing down, she becomes a bit apathetic. Lately, she's been reading a lot on her computer and watching TV apart from work. She has an office job, so no wonder she has been gaining weight again. Now she has convinced herself that the only solution is to get a "Slimband", which involves surgery and a $20 000 bill. My biggest objection is that any surgery is a risk, and frankly I thought this sort of thing was for morbidly obese people. She's not even obese, just a bit chubby. Add to this that we honestly can't afford it, at least not if we want to eat anything other than water and bread for the next two years. To this she has now started to look for options in countries like Mexico, which I think is insane. I don't like this sort of "solution". It feels like it will bring more trouble down the line. I have a hard time trying to get her back to the gym. I think she feels a bit let down by the way the gym didn't work out in the past. Any ideas or insights here everyone?
