Always knew it was coming, I guess. She's always eaten an atrocious diet (tons of simple carbs and starches, almost no vegetables unless they're slathered in cheese and oil, a taste for fatty foods inherited from her parents) but youth and jogging kept it off more or less. Tonight at my kid's little league game I turned to see her approaching from a few dozen yards away and despite a very loose fitting top she looked heavily pregnant. Except she's not pregnant.

The other day when I came home from work my wife told me that when she dropped off our daughter at daycare, one of the little girls there asked her if she was about to have another baby. My wife replied no. The little girl went for the kill and told her that it sure looked like she was.
I burst out laughing when she told me, and thank god, my wife laughed heartily as well.
Not married but one observation I have made is that some women simply get pregnant again when they don't lose the baby weight or hit a weight-loss plateau. This way they have an excuse for being larger.
Will have to be made.
If she is ready to go to the gym encourage her to go and you'll take care of the kids. For wifey, Zumba and other gym classes have worked wonders. After she comes back from the gym I make sure to ask how her work out went and look interested. Wifey got to take intitiative and you support it. Surprise her with a vitamix or go with a nutriullet or something to get her thinking about having nutrition over calories. There is a good documentary movie about what you eat out on Netflix you guys should watch together. Lastly, it can hurt if you guys work out together or jog in the morning if possible.
The good news, she is not screwing around as many hot wives or husbands sincerely do. Be honest it sucks to have a fat wife,but it also guarantees to lead to depression for her and the other health effects are beyond belief. So there are other good reasons to expect her to take care of herself for the whole family. The bad news is she will get mad at you get in shape and screw the whole freaking neighborhood. So is life. Laxatives in her food every 3 to 4 days is also a option but an get dangerous.
serious answer, without making it about HER weight, lead by example. and come up with FUN activities you can do together.
I was in the opposite situation. I was the fatty. she started eating healthy, working it into our lifestyle, got us into tennis which is a blast. I started to look around at the guys we played against and realized I needed to make some changes. You hang around healthy people...you start to get health.
The WORST thing you can do is just tell her she needs to lose weight (she already knows).
Does she have fat friends? Cuz that will make this harder. They move in packs. Wolifing down onions ring apps and 1,000 calorie Mudslides.
