Guest Post by Rod Devreese

Gaining weight is associated with aging and many other factors. That’s why people, especially married couples, start gaining weight as they grow old together. Reducing weight should be the common goal of both partners in order to keep a healthy marriage and a healthy lifestyle.

However, if you don’t have any idea about how to start a diet plan to lose weight, the best thing to do is to seek help from a nutritionist or health care provider. You should find ample motivations to start a healthier life: Maintaining a healthy weight can reduce the risk of illness and the risk of losing the spark in your marriage.

Because your metabolism starts to slow as you age, it’s important to pay attention to what you put into your body. Likewise, you should avoid being so rushed through a meal that you have to frequently rely on fast food, which has very poor nutrition. To make sure you that you’re always looking the best for your partner, you need to research a choose a diet plan that you both can stick to. Encourage each other and be amazed at the results!.

If either of you starts gaining weight, join forces in a common goal to stay healthy and rediscover ways to fit an active lifestyle into your schedule. It can be very challenging, so you both need to be committed. Just make sure you have an open discussion about your goals and limitations, so that you know where your partner stands. You each should have an opportunity to voice your preferences and concerns so that you know to motivate and accommodate each other.

Emotions and food go together. If you notice that your partner is putting on more than a few pounds, you should consider the emotional state that accompanies this kind of physical change. Is there underlying tension in your relationship that’s causing one or both of you to find your solace in food? Couples who argue a lot sometimes use food as an emotional substitute to relieve anxiety. If you suspect that either one of your is gaining weight in response to emotional distress, make sure you address the underlying emotional issues just as much (if not more) than the physical issues.

Following healthy diet plan and workout program will not only help you shed extra pounds, but it will also help you relieve anxiety. Gaining weight can make you feel unattractive and bottom-out your self-esteem. Be considerate of your partner’s sensitivity (and your own!) about their weight gain and focus your efforts on being understanding and supportive. You guys are on the same team! If you’re in it together, it will be easier to achieve your mutual goal to stay fit and attractive for each other.

Exercise will help you lose weight, stay healthy, look sexy and have fun! It’s a great couples bonding activity and it will open up new doors to enjoy spending time together. Plus, it’s a little romantic to talk about what you want to teach your kids, even if it’s as simple as healthy eating habits and exercise.
