your life line will be shorter if you waistline is longer.you have to stomach this fact however unsavory it is!
OBESITY MAKES ALL PROBLEMS MORE BIGGER.,it invites heart problems,skin diseases and whatnot before it deskins you
thinner stomachs makes thicker contacts,because in love skin to skin is not a sin

the loser is the winner(weight, not love)

No not at all, that is infact the right way, Theory says that the person with more waist line has more complication of diabetes and more over it can increase the chances of Diabetes. Now listening to this fact I think you can ask your dear ones to lose the weight and reduce the tummy by natural process. Activity is very important.
