Many a time have I been in relationships where fitness was never a part of the equation. In fact, the biggest reasons why I gained a ton of weight in the past is because of the relationships I was in.
In one particular relationship, the guy I was dating resented me for spending so much time at the gym… so I stopped. Looking back, it is one of the worst decisions of my life. I ended up gaining a whopping 35 pounds after that and the next guy I dated also didn't like it when I spent time in the gym than with him.
Fortunately, I discovered MySlim and ended up losing a ton of weight and then I discovered pole dancing, kettle bells and aerial hoops and was able to maintain my weight since then. During that journey, I also met an amazing man who is very supportive of my current gym-going habits - so much so that he waits for me at the gym sometimes and continues to support me even when I leave the gym covered in insane bruises sometimes.
And I think that's important: to have someone by your side who supports you in your fitness endeavours. After all, why should someone try to hinder you from staying fit?
This married couple takes things up a notch higher by working out together to spice up their relationship. Watch their story here:
