How a wife looks on the outside, matters to a husband on the inside.

The effort you put into your appearance is extremely high on his priority list.

It only takes a small effort to keep yourself looking “tight.”

One of the problems is that we may only dress good when we are doing it for others and not for our spouse.


I am not talking just about your weight, it’s about taking care of yourself for HIM!

Your husband takes your appearance negligence as you are not doing something that is very important to him.

Men say, “I just want to see that my wife cares enough about me to make an effort.”

If you don’t have a perfect body or perfect complexion, make the best with what you have.


We were happy that our husbands enjoyed our looks during courtship, but we resent it that our appearance should still matter to him after marriage.

GIRLS!!  It is not about being a Size 2, it’s about showing your husband that you are making an effort to address something that is very important to him.

It is all about him!


Almost every man cares if his wife is out of shape and doesn’t make an effort to change.

88% of men said it would bother them if their wife let herself go and didn’t bother to make an effort to change it.

Only 12% said it did not bother them.

What matters most to your husband is the fact that you are making an effort to take care of yourself for him.

 Men were surveyed about the following statement:  It is not important that his wife look like she looked when they met.  It is more important that she makes the effort to take care of herself now for him.

83% of the men agreed with this statement.  17% did not.

Sad to say, a lot of Christian women feel they have taken the vows”…for better or worse…” so what’s on the outside doesn’t matter.

When you take care of yourself or slim down, it makes your husband feel loved and cared for.

One husband said his wife was slimming down for him and it made him feel like a million bucks.

Where do you start?


  1. YOUR husband wants to help you.

97% of men said they would love to do what it takes to help their wife get in shape.

  1. There are many resources out there to help you.
  1. You have a God in heaven who will help you.

NOTE:  Daily there is a new post to help your marriage succeed.

    Are you kidding me? You are demeaning women about their looks. I am 66 years old, been married for 36 years and have kept myself in better shape than my husband. I’m 5’5, 125 lbs, eat healthy, BMI at healthy level, no cholesterol problems. No heart issues. No high blood pressure. No diabetes. Physically active. On the other hand, my husband is 65 years old, 5’7”“, weighs 230 lbs. has diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, eats unhealthy foods; actually has an obsession with food, When we go out together, he defends himself dressing like a slob as “casual”. I’m always embarrassed. I buy him smart casual clothing, which he never wears. So, shame on you. Most women care about their appearance than men.
