My guy is so great about being supportive of Weight Watchers. He supports me in general by telling me how proud he is of me and by telling me how hawt I look (although he said that before I decided to drop a few pounds).
But I really appreciate that he’s willing to eat Weight Watchers food with me. Weight Watchers recipes are really good (it’s not like he has to eat something gross!) but for a guy who works out an average of 2-3 hours a day and doesn’t have an ounce of extra fat on his body I think it’s pretty rad of him to "eat weight watchers" when I"m in town for the weekend.
What about you? How does your guy support you?

That’s so sweet of him! What a great guy 🙂 I feel a bit like cheat to share since I’m not planning for a wedding, but this reminded me of the conversation about marriage I had with my man today – he’s all into it and was saying how he’d really want to go to the gym and get running regularly (he’s a bit sporadic at the moment, it’s winter), he wanted to look good for the day and the photos hehe (he’s fine and normal and I love him as he is though!). I was thinking… "wait a minute! Aren’t I supposed to be worried about that stuff??" I guess when we get engaged I’ll think about doing something, but I’m so slack and have never been a regular exerciser that I don’t really believe I’ll manage to do much. Just to tone up and have a nice flat tummy (to his disappointment – he loooooves it soft). But yes, i’d have miles of support for whatever I wanted to do! He always wants me to be his running buddy and do all sorts of things together. I LOVE playing indoor sports so I guess that’s what I’d try to do as my exercise. Good luck!

Ha my guy and I made a pact to not eat fast food. As I am the lesser-willed of the two of us, he’s pushed it on me for a month now… and I am used to it. In fact, I ate fast food once (needed something to eat to take advil!) and felt SO BAD about it, I don’t think I can do it again.
He has told me we can eat WW friendly (i’m doing that) and pushes me to exercise, too. He’s sometimes a little exercising nazi-ish, but I love him for it!

My guy looks great, goes to the gym almost every day and is very athletic. I can’t keep up! But he is very supportive of WW and other diet/fitness efforts. I think its because when I do these things, I feel better in attitude, mood and health so he knows that its something that makes me happy (in turn, him happy "happy wife happy life").
I’ve actually been very pleased that he has been so supportive of one of my diet rules – no eating after 7 PM. He usually snacks on something later which is fine, but he’s been really good about earlier dinners.

The Hubs has been a great help to me while I’ve tried to get healthier/lose weight. He has diabetes, so he always has to watch what he eats (and when). This has helped me really be aware of what I’m eating, watch portions and plan balanced meals. Plus, we go to the gym together, so we keep each other motivated and active. There are definitely days where I don’t feel like going, but he’s already dressed and ready to go, so I motivate.

My FI and I just started the couch to 5k fitness plan, which I found in one of the posts on WB. It’s been great to get running again and has really helped get me back on track and not sprinting out of the fitness gate too fast. He’s been so great at pushing me when I need that kick in the butt to go for our run. And it’s been fun spending that time together after we both get home from work, enjoying the outdoors and doing something healthy! 🙂
He also has been super supportive in my efforts to cook healthy food and do things like substitue thinly sliced zucchini for pasta.

My FI is very supportive of me and even cooks WW food for me and is careful about what he buys for the hosue since he knows I’ll get tempted by certain things (chips!).
He also is supportive of my yoga practice and sometimes lets me use him as a practice student. That has been really helpful for me as I’m trying to teach more and more and he says he gets a lot out of it too! 🙂 Now that I’m starting to get teaching jobs, he brags to people about how he gets my classes for free and that just helps me feel really good. He’s sweet!

My FI is a super healthy eater, and from dating Day 1 he’s been a big help in helping me to be a healthier person. He helps me by cooking well, and he runs with me when I am having a bad day :).

When we started dating (two and a half years ago) we were both coming off of bad divorces, and each of us were looking our best…due to not eating all that much during the divorce process. Finding happiness seems to add inches to your waistline and pounds to your weight! So we’ve gained the weight together, and are now working together to lose the weight.
We do certain workouts together, and other seperately, but usually on the same days. We each weigh in and measure and try to make good food choices, including counting those calories together. Having the freedom to be accountable to someone has really helped me, and it’s nice to know that if I’m going to "cheat" on our diet, I have a partner in crime!
Either way, we’re BOTH getting into shape for our wedding, and it’s great to have a partner or buddy to do this with. I don’t think that I would have made the progress that I have without him by my side…

The hubs is very supportive of me in my weight loss/fitness. He is first to notice weight lost and makes sure I know about it. He also helps gets me to go to the gym when I don’t feel like it. I’ll tell him that morning, make me go to the gym…I know I need to go but I think I’ll probably feel lazy. LOL! He’ll give me a guilt trip about it until I walk out the door. I hate it at first but I thank him a LOT after the work-out!
