Strengthening Your Marriage Tips
Why is it so important to strengthen your marriage when you are losing weight? If you are losing weight to become happier and healthier, then you will probably be disappointed once you have reached your target weight if your marriage isn't healthy too. Research shows, on average, a healthy marriage has a greater impact on your health and happiness than reaching your target weight. This doesn't mean you shouldn't also be working on attaining a healthy weight. The key to becoming healthier and happier is to work on using the healthy weight loss tips, strengthening your marriage and improving yourself.
Losing weight can also sometimes be hazardous to your marital health. If you are not careful, your spouse may become resentful and develop negative feelings towards you as you lose weight.
To decrease your chances of damaging your marital relationship, we recommend you do the following:
1. Do not try to convince your spouse to try any of the weight loss tips.
2. Do not make changes to the food or snacks your spouse has always had access to.
3. Do not ask your spouse to exercise with you.
4. Ask your spouse to let you know if there is ever anything you say or do that makes him or her feel like you think he or she should also be losing weight.
5. Accept the eating habits, exercise habits, and the body shape of your spouse. Don't try to force him or her to change anything.
6. Make sure your spouse knows you love him or her just the way he or she is.
7. The most important tip is to work extra hard at strengthening your relationship. Even if you do the first six tips perfectly your spouse could still end up resenting your weight loss and feel negative feelings towards you.
Even if you are 100% sure losing weight will have a positive impact on your marriage you still should learn and implement the strengthening marriage tips.
The reality is we all should be doing more to strengthen our marriages. All the time and effort you put into strengthening your marriage will significantly increase your chances of living a healthier and happier life.
We have developed a series of pamphlets to help you learn the skills and insights that can help you form and sustain a healthy marriage. We recommend you spend at least one week on each pamphlet, learning and implementing that skill or insight. Click here to print a strengthening your marriage progress chart for each pamphlet you use.
