Gaining Weight – 00:31
Fights – 4:14
When you’re in love the world seems brighter around you, the sun shinier, the birds chirpier, the sights…. uh… sightlier. The point is that you’re happier and nothing could possibly go wrong. Your life has reached its peak and there’s no way it could get any worse. No way. No how. We might as well just end the video here because there’s no way somethings going to come along and change your perception of love. Yes, love is a beautiful thing. Hugging, kissing, laughing, holding hands and gaining weight. Wait… what was that last part? Today folks, we’re going to ask and answer the question: Can Love Make You Gain Weight?
We’ll just get right too it and say sorry to burst your bubble here, but you might be gaining weight due to your recent fling with whomever.
This is especially true when you’re newlyweds. Often, as a new couple, you go out more, you spend more time sipping cocktails and looking into each other’s eyes and most of all, you stop watching your weight. We mean, the whole point of staying in shape was to get a partner and now that you do you can finally be comfortable, right?
This isn’t just speculation, either. Our friend and frequent collaborator PENNY GORDON‐LARSEN had this to say about this fact: “The researchers concluded that living together increases both men and women’s risk for obesity.
This phenomenon is called concordance: or gaining weight together. It has everything to do with all that stuff we talked about a minute ago. Going out more, staring into each other’s eyes, yadda yadda. About this happening, PENNY GORDON‐LARSEN said: “Women who live with a romantic partner have an increased chance of becoming obese within a year, and men’s odds increase within two years. As a whole, married couples are most likely to experience this weight gain within two years.” All in all, she found that weight gain behavior is contagious.
There’s also a factor of happiness. That’s right, whether you have a happy marriage or not determines whether or not you might gain weight. The SOUTHERN METHODIST UNIVERSITY discovered that: “Other research has found that young newlyweds who are happy with their marriage tend to put on extra weight. In contrast, couples who weren’t as satisfied with their relationship tend to gain less weight.”
So what can you do about it? Well, our best advice is to work out together. Take a walk after dinner, maybe find a fun activity that you both enjoy that’s also exercise. Marathons, sports, gym sessions, these are all great ways to shed those extra relationship pounds. There are other ways to prevent weight loss too– you could eat out less, for starters. Making homemade, healthy meals is one of the best ways to lose weight. Remember the old adage– abs are made in the kitchen. Another thing you could do is to choose healthier snacks and meals, ones that you make at home. Bottom line is this: be conscious of what you eat and make sure your partner is as well. Remember, you’re there to support each other.
So there you go. You conquered the weight gain and now there’s nothing that could POSSIBLY ruin your good time in the relationship. Nothing. Nothing… at… all… Alright, enough is enough, we’re going to pop your little bubble here: sooner or later, you’re going to get into… a fight.
Don’t panic, conflict in a relationship is a good thing. Experts have found that: “When there are no conflicts in a relationship, there is no trust in it either. If you keep your feelings to yourself, you can’t change anything. Arguments help let out the anger and tell your partner what you don’t like. You’ll find each other’s weak spots and begin understanding each other better.” You just need to make sure that you don’t have what we like to call “ugly fights”.
Ugly fights are the loud, bombastic conflicts that are chalked full of criticism, defensiveness, contempt and stonewalling come into play. Some of these words might be confusing in the context of a relationship fight, so let us go down the list and make sure you’re on board.
