Sometimes having a common goal can bring a couple together especially when they are working together, sharing the ups and downs and encouraging one another to keep going. Although it is hard to see your loved one feeling like this and the feelings it brings out in you, could it also provide some insight into how he might feel about watching you?
Maybe you could talk with him about how you feel, let him share how he feels and then talk about setting a joint goal that you can work on together so you can both feel about about your own body image while drawing closer as a couple. Here are some resources that might help you take this journey together.
