My husband and I (30+ years married) were both very active and very slim until I was badly injured in a sledding accident (broke my back in three places). Then both of us quit our activity but didn't stop eating the way we always had. Ten years later, I had gained an embarrassing amount of weight and he was beginning to gain. I have struggled now for five years to lose it, his came right off. He was badly injured on the job in 2014 (fell off a roof and crushed both ankles in more than 100 pieces each) and his Dr. told him, he was fortunate to be slight and to never ever gain any weight because the added weight would ruin his healing forever because of the extra strain it would put on his feet. This scared us both into action! I am walking, learning to run, again, and doing yoga every single day. Both of us cut our food portions in half, then in half again! Sugar is off the menu. We must BOTH be slim and healthy by summer 2016. Now that we are both on board with the plan, it is working for us. It is nearly impossible to lose or even maintain good weight and health when your partner negatively sabotages your every positive effort.
