To the Men of PT

I'm trying to convince my husband to be to try PT... how did the men on here get started? Was it self-realization? Or perhaps a little bit of nagging? How would you suggest getting another guy started on this site??

self realization for me. I thought I bought a size 36 pant, got home tried them on and they so well! I was all set to go back and more... then I put on my reading glasses and realized I bought a size 38!!! time to lose some weight!
I'd been putting it off for too long.
I already knew that keeping a log was helpful for me, and somehow I landed on the PT site. Seemed like a good idea, so I decided to give it a try. It's been great! I log my stuff daily, and I find the support of the group to be even more helpful, and motivating. If anyone has even the slightest bit of a competitive spirit, it could really keep you motivated to lose.
personally i think PT is a great tool to weight loss, and fitness. Great idea, great site, great tool!
there are men on here... we are certainly outnumbered, but there are some good groups, and there is a great team of men too... Men with a Mission.
Get him to try it for a few days. get in the habit of logging in daily and soon he'll be hooked.

Tell him that he can complain about his wife in complete anonymity!
