Find support & recipe ideas here! SparkPeople Just the Two of Us Team Messageboard Do you exercise together? My husband and I used to go to our local Y together, but he's been so busy this year with school that I've been going with a workout partner. I need the accountability. Sat, 16 Apr 2011 14:07:22 EST looking for couples who have lost weight together Hi, <BR> <BR> I'm an editor at a new diet/fitness site, I recently published two inspiring stories about women who lost weight and credit their success to SparkPeople! I'm looking for couples who have lost weight together and want to share their story. (We have a partnership with MSN, so it's very likely your story will be shared with millions of Americans.) Please send me a note if you or anyone you know is interested. Thank you! Wed, 19 Jan 2011 15:57:35 EST Are you & your spouse making any resolutions? Are you and your spouse going into the new year with any resolutions? <BR> <BR> My husband and I are planning on making a schedule for going to the gym -- we've got to be more faithful to it! Sat, 1 Jan 2011 11:57:20 EST What do you do to promote fitness in your home? I try to keep the junk out (NOT doing a good job) and encourage us both to move around. <BR> <BR> We both take part in a challenge at our workplace (yes, we work together) to get the most steps in a day. It's a community-wide competition and right now our team is in 5th place! It keeps us interested and competitive, which is a real plus for me. Sat, 30 Oct 2010 11:45:46 EST Is your spouse health conscious? That can play such a major role in continued success. <BR> <BR> I've really had to express my desires for where I want to be, otherwise my husband just doesn't understand. He has never had a weight problem, so this is completely foreign to him. Because of that I can't be putting any blame on him for the bad choices I make. They are mine! <BR> <BR> My husband does like to go to the gym and he encourages us to take walks around our neighborhood with the dog. <BR> <BR> As far as healthy eatin... Sat, 30 Oct 2010 11:22:54 EST How has your spouse impacted your fitness? (Negative or positive) <BR> <BR> I'd say on the positive end HE was the one to make the decision to join the gym. It's important to him to stay in decent physical shape so that he can still play sports while coaching. <BR> <BR> On the negative -- my dietary plan went out the window. There are lots and lots of things that he likes to eat, that are fine in moderation, that I simply should not be touching. Before we were married, when I lived alone, this stuff never came in the house. I don't ... Sat, 30 Oct 2010 11:17:33 EST What's your favorite recipe for two? I lived alone for so long that I got used to just feeding myself. It so so much easier for me to make healthy choices then. One big thing now is PORTIONS. We usually end up with leftovers and I try to freeze or use the leftovers within the next couple of days. The problem is that my husband is a very picky eater and doesn't really like to have the same thing very often (unless it's something that he really really likes). <BR> <BR> Ideas for recipes to feed two people?
