We’re Publishing an eBook!

Over the course of the past few months, Kevin and I have been working on an ebook, and we’re so excited to share with you that it’s almost done! The book is called “Honey, Do I Look Fat? How to Successfully Lose Weight While in a Relationship.”  It is composed of three sections; effective communication, motivation, and an exercise plan.  We wanted to tell you all about the book before it’s published because we would love your input. We still have time to add a few things, so we’ll give you an outline of what’s in it and we would love any suggestions! Let us know if there’s something you want to know more about or if there’s a section you’d like seen included in the book.

In the effective communication section, we first teach you some self-assessment techniques to determine how your health and fitness compares to the norms.  Then you’ll learn about the Stages of Change model which will help you determine how receptive your partner is to making a change in their diet and exercise habits. We also teach you how to avoid the 4 big mistakes couples make when having discussions, and we teach you how to be an effective listener. We also include some tips for initiating a conversation about diet and health with your significant other.

In the motivation section, we teach you about goal setting, and how to overcome some common excuses for not exercising. Then we give you some tips on how to get out the door and get started. The book ends with a 2-level exercise plan (for beginners and for more advanced exercisers) which includes both cardiovascular exercise and resistance training.

Please let us know if you have any suggestions! We’d love to hear from you!

The book will be published within the next two weeks and it will be available on the Amazon kindle and through amazon online. We’ll post a link as soon as it’s up!

    Love the concepts covered. From the been there category, it is harder to see someone struggle with this issue and keeping perspective and detatchment
