There's only so much you can do.

My wife told me I wasn't as attractive as I used to be since I gained weight. I gained weight with her while she was pregnant and now I work almost constantly to support my family.

It never seems to end.

When my wife was pregnant, I gained weight with her. She lost a lot after birth, but I kept it on. Now imagine that times 4. Now that the kids are a bit bigger, I have the time and energy to get fit.

It's how you showed love.
