In brief: Talk about weight

Tell him you love him and that you are concerned about his health.
People that are overweight are at a higher risk of developing things like diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, sleep apnea, heart disease, and on average live shorter lives. So you can tell him that you want him to be around longer and to be able to grow old with you, and to do that he needs to get healthier.
