If you’re planning to walk down the aisle soon, you’re probably already putting some extra care and attention into eating right and working out. After all, you want to feel and look your best on the big day! But what happens if your fiancé isn’t quite so gung-ho about your healthy lifestyle?

1. Have a frank conversation. Your fiancé is—and will soon legally be—your life partner. If your fiancé’s unhealthy habits are throwing a wrench into your plans of looking radiantly healthy on your wedding day, speak up. It may be that your fiancé is completely unaware that you’re trying to lose weight or become healthier.

  1. Jenn, I really like what you have written here. Some differences between individuals in a couple are good, but I totally agree with you that with something as important as health and fitness goals, the couple needs to support one another. I’m just a skinny guy who stays naturally thin for some reason, but I can definitely imagine how much work it takes for others to stay be lean and fit. What you have written is great advice for women, and men as well! It was a pleasure to read your blog.
