You vowed to love each other for richer or poorer, in sickness and in health. But no one said anything about packing on the pounds together.Beleive it or not, I have gained 15 pounds since I got married about 5 months ago and no, I'm not pregnant! I found a study by Cornell University researcher Jeffery Sobal who states that newlyweds gain more weight than singles, widowed or divorced people. Causes include regularly eating out and women eating the same portions of food as their husbands. Another factor for marital weight gain could be a more sedantary lifestyle. With new responsibilities of setting up a new home and family, there may be less time for exercise or it may be neglected entirely.
Now it's true that we eat out a lot.Our together time often revolves around eating as if it was our main source of fun. Whenever we're bored, it's like:' let's go out, eat and go to the movies.' Then when we get to the movies, we will buy some popcorn, nachos and a big slurpee.To the top of that,I snack a lot. I for instance love snickers and we buy the big pack of about 40 snickers, put in in the fridge and finish it in 2 days! I feel like I constantly need to have something in my mouth, I crave food like crazy! I eat whenever my husband does, even if I'm stuffed,my portions get much larger in an attempt to match his. I don't even know why.....
Plus, I'm lazy and I've stopped exercising while I have a gym home but I only used it twice. I don't want to wake up ten years from now,looking at an old picture of myself and going, 'What the hell happened?'. The other thing is I hate dieting, I can't be on a diet, it just doesn't work for me! Some people are very good at it and can follow a structured schedule of what to eat when and how, I can't! The only way for me to stay fit is to start working out! So, I guess I'm gonna stop talking about it and hit the gym tonight at least stay on the threadmill for 30 minutes even if I'm walking!Running for 30 minutes is a huge deal for me. The reason being I always get bored when I am running. I think about all the things I should be doing,watching tv, laying on the couch, laundry, , cooking, internet... and so on and I am bored out of my mind.But I will keep you posted!
I found these tips on How to Keep Marital Pounds off:
1) Plan a regular exercise routine before or after work with your spouse instead of slouching on the sofa to watch television.
2) Make it a priority to wake up early to enjoy a substantial breakfast to avoid snacking in between meals
3) For a few days each week, plan and cook wholesome meals together.
4) Don't stock up on high-calorie snacks at home.
5) Wash dishes together, or go for a walk after meals. Doing activities together can also help strengthen your relationship.
