Love him: You're already smart enough to know that criticism merely hurts relationships and accomplishes nothing. Start pursuing aerobic fitness yourself and if he shows any interest in joining you, lavish praise on him. A man who exercises starts cutting calories without help. If you cook for him / make food choices, cook "lean" for both of you. Praise any weight loss lavishly. He's lucky to have you.
