11Use Reusable water bottles for both of you

Drinking water may seem like a normal insignificant task but it is crucial for your weight loss program. Water has the potential to reduce calories and even prevent you from gaining weight. It also detoxifies your body and is obviously the best way to stay hydrated. Drinking water will boost your energy while also reducing your want for sugary energy drinks.

Keeping a bottle with you is a good way of reminding yourself to take a sip of water every now and then, to meet your daily requirements. Filling up your partner’s water bottle and placing it in their bag or places where they often sit is a great way of encouraging them to drink sufficient water daily. This way they won’t have to go get any other drink when they feel thirsty.

12Exercise Together

Your motivation and drive to work out will definitely receive a boost if you have your partner doing it with you. With your partner, you can do the exercises that require 2 people such as crunches, partner-pushups, and others. A study conducted at the Kansas State University revealed that couples who begin working out together are known to intensify their workout by 200%.

Having your partner workout beside you stops you from feeling reluctant to workout. Their presence makes you have a positive attitude towards your workout and helps you form a better connection with each other. Exercising doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to hit the gym, it can be stuff like jogging, swimming, hiking, and even enjoying a nice walk together is good enough. Workout or do some physical activity for at least 120-150 minutes each week with your partner.

Getting less than 8 hours of sleep can cause you to gain weight. Sleep deprivation leads to weight gain. Thus, you might want to consider getting a good solid 8 hours of sleep to help you lose weight. In fact, sleeping less than 6 hours makes an adult’s appetite increase and makes them feel hungry more often. As a result, cravings for foods rich in carbs also increase. According to some studies, sleep deprivation and obesity are linked. This is due to the fact that lack of sleep has an effect on the hunger-regulating hormone (ghrelin+leptin).

Both of you should get 7-9 hours of sleep every night

It would be advisable for both you and your partner to get 7 to 9 hours of sleep every night for regulating your hormones and to keep your hunger in and insulin levels in check. Move the TV out of your bedroom and switch off all electronic gadgets like computers, cell-phones, iPads and such that would keep you awake. Getting into bed at the same time as your partner is a good idea to get some bonding time before ending your day.

14Keep a Timeline of Your Goal with Your Partner

Setting a common goal and a certain deadline together would be a good way to ensure both of you stay focused on what needs to be accomplished. This provides you with motivation to succeed before the deadline is up.

Just in case your partner has to lose a few extra pounds than you, set smaller goals that when completed leads on to the next until the ultimate one is completed. Recording your weight-loss journey along with the goals you and your partner have already accomplished, in a journal is a good way of staying motivated together.

Knowing that a fun reward will be there at the end, once either of you have achieved your goals is a huge motivating factor to keep you going. Your loved one is sure to stay on track with their diet if they know that there is something fun planned for once the goal is reached. Planning little rewards and surprises for your partner for when they complete the mini-goals is an encouraging way to get them excited and set on completing the next goal. Just remember to present your partner with non-food related rewards, as it can turn out to be counterproductive, for those dead-set on losing weight.

Try losing weight and maintaining an active and healthy lifestyle with your loved one by following these guaranteed effective points; both of your lives will definitely take a turn for the better.
