Knock those love handles out! Become a member at Merritt Athletic Clubs with your significant other. Love makes the world go round, but it can also add to your waistline when relationship weight gain creeps up on you. Visiting a fitness center regularly will help you stay in top shape together.

It’s great to have someone to share your life with. It’s not so great when that same contentment makes it tempting to stay home and eat in front of the TV. Add in the pressures of parenthood and the stress of juggling career and home responsibilities, and it’s no wonder people in committed relationships tend to put on weight.

Working out together will help you stay healthy and attractive for each other. Obviously, it’s cruel and not even effective to get into name calling and nagging if your partner has a gotten a little bigger than when you first met. The most effective strategy is to support each other in making constructive changes to improve your future.

In addition to your gym membership, there are some other strategies for handling this situation. Work on eating better. The combination of physical activity and a balanced diet is the best way to lose weight safely and keep it off. You should also try to view the problem objectively. You may feel like your partner got heavier as a sign of disrespect for you. In reality, it may mean that they trust you so much that they’ve let down their defenses and feel more comfortable indulging in food. Hang onto that trust while you work on getting back in shape.
