Tips for Engaged Couples or Newlyweds
Make it a challenge and do it together. Accountability and consistency are the two biggest things that separate a successful weight loss or fitness plan from one that isn’t. Reward each other. If you go to the gym three times a week, share a special date night. The support you share, especially since you are both working towards something together, will be invaluable and it’s fun.
If You Could Give Only One Piece of Advice…
Listen. We often spend so much time trying to make our significant other happy. We try to search for answers instead of just listening. You don’t have to be there to solve everything, just be there to listen.
