Lose weight as a Couple

You put on that marital-bliss belly together, and now it’s time to take it off as a team. Though the science seems stacked against you—a 2009 study published in the journal Obesity found that just living with a romantic partner for more than 2 years correlated with obesity, inactivity, and sedentary behavior—you can still lose weight with your better half if you take the right steps. Working together to lose those pounds can not only be more productive than working alone, but can be a lot of fun, too. Working as a team, is also good for the relationship.
Couples have so many opportunities to help each other—more than they would have if they were trying to lose weight alone. In fact, a 2008 study found that when one partner enrolled in a weight loss program, the non-participating partner ended up copying their spouse’s healthier behavior: They counted calories, weighed themselves more often, and lost an average of 5 pounds. Use all of the weight loss strategies to ensure that getting hitched isn’t the end of healthy living—together, you can eat better, exercise more, and fight fat. Peel away pounds together! Excercising together will help both of you. It will help motivate, sort of like a competition & make it more enjoyable. So, let's start working together ya'll, let's get healthy & fit! Hope this is helpful!
As always, I look forward to your comments & suggestions. Let me know what you think of my blog. Let me know how I can make it better. Thanks for visiting. Terry
