He was complaining that his entire body hurt. He is seriously overweight. Me: umm..everything? No, my knees,,my back, my calves cramped. So I suggested I could give him some good stretches to do tomorrow.

Apparently THAT wasnít what he wanted to hear.

I ask,him to walk with me so we can do something together. ďI feel I just hold you back. You can walk farther.Ē I say I dont mind slowing down.

I guess my issue is that he wonít help,himself. He knows he needs to lose weight and wonít do it.

Frankly, itís one more thing that annoyed me today in a long list......

I totally get it. That's it, I just get it.

The amount of self-control it takes not to say what I think is staggering.

My husband and I have been walking together at least five days a week, sometimes more since March 22nd. When we used to walk he would go way faster than me and I could not keep up with him because his legs were longer.

Since I lost 60 pounds and have been working out consistently for the past two years, I am in really good shape and somewhere along the line he has found that he cannot walk as fast anymore.

We start together and I zip past him. I occasionally check on him but am usually about five minutes ahead of him. Sometimes I wait for him and walk a little bit with him. He does not mind as he enjoys looking at the scenery and wants me to go at the pace I go so I can get the best workout for me. We both win. Then afterwards we will stop somewhere for dinner and swim in our pool as a reward.

Maybe suggest a walk on a trail somewhere then stop for dinner at the nearest restaurant as a reward. No pressure, just something fun to do.

Will he do a walking workout in the privacy of your home? I found one on YouTube that I really like. That's something you could do together. After a bit the soreness he feels from being inactive will fade, and he will build his stamina and his confidence. Then he might be willing to walk with you in the real world.

Our husbands must be related! There is always an excuse why he can't walk or do any exercise or try to follow any eating plan I have provided. So frustrating!

Is this new pain? I donít mean to alarm you, but I just heard of someone who just tested positive for. covid, and the only symptoms she had been having was knee joint pain. Her doctor said her pains were due to the virus. Do you think thereís any possibility?

No, itís not new pain at all, hence my annoyance. He wonít stretch or ice the knee. Doc told him last year after he tried to clean it out that he needed to lose weight and would probably need a replacement.

He does have a back problem stemming from some arthritis that he does take care of.
