    Hey guys I saw some amazing pictures of couples that lost weight, which inspires me to lose weight with my wife. Do anybody have any advice on how I can motivate my wife to work out with me?

    Is your wife on board with losing weight? If so, that's half the battle! I never was athletic or liked exercise, so I focused primarily on my food first, then started walking. So I'd recommend starting slow, just asking for a nightly after dinner walk and maybe eventually work up to signing up for a 5K walk (or run!). Honestly, though, I personally don't like to work out with my husband (or anyone really) I'm too self conscious.

    Here's ours! The after picture is actually several months ago, but is the most recent I have. It's wonderful doing this together!
    We have lost a combined total of 220 pounds.

    Wow! Awesome job! You both look great. Btw, I have the same Lane Bryant tank tops and love them! I'm a 18/20 top now, but still like to wear the 26/28 version since It tends to hug all the bumps and lumps in the smaller versions.

    @Wizeman22 What worked for me was a mini contest b/c I am competitive. Sell her on the vision of you alls healthy future and reward her for making a good healthy decision. It can be something simple as getting a couple's massage, a nice something that she always wanted, new gym clothes, etc. For me, it was a new bike. I worked my tail off to lose 20 lbs to get a new bike - to do even more exercises. Make it fun and be sensitive about it. I would also show her this thread to show her that couples are working out together and having success. I think your success rate is higher if both partners (even the entire family) are committed to the journey!!! Make sure you report back on your success :)

    My hubby and I work out together and push/motivate each other. I lost 70 pounds from 2008-2009 and have maintained but just started toning up. He has been up and down for years but recently got serious again. We have 6 kids together. :)@ChadW4521‌
    Beautiful family!
