support from your partner

my partner (wife) is 100% behind my attempt at getting a better physique,she buys the food i need ,helps me prepare my drinks etc, doesnt mind how long i train ,and generaly doesnt complain much about the time i need to spend on this,(just a little have a go at me now and then)i think with the support of the partners it makes it easier to accomplish your goals,does anybody have any probs with their partners moaning or the opposite?

    mine hated it - just one of many things we used to argue about. before we separated.

    things like the diet are kind of a problem in a relationship. occasional nice meals out together are a given, but the everyday eating different things at different times does come between you.

    yes i imagine for someone who is serious about their diet it would cause a lot of problems,as you say not spending the time together

    you need a sense of perspective. it's not why we separated, but i would do things differently now, you have to be flexible if you are asking someone to share your life ...

    sorry to come on all depressing!

    thats true mate as everyone is equal,both have a life and just because we get married doesnt mean either person owns the other,both should support the other as if not married,we dont live seperate lives as we are getting to know each other and that should not change with marriage.

    Supporting partners make a huge difference. Hubbie is great with me as long as I don't expect him to go without the food that I drivel over. When he trains with me he pushes me hard. Neither of us trust anyone else as a training partner as we've trained together many times over the last 20 years and know exactly how we need support etc. Bless him, he doesn't even whinge when his hands get stained from the false tan when I compete

    fantastic partner i know exactly how you feel (dont you want to hug them to death) i also know quite a few people having problems with their partners and breakups of relationships this part of building is very sad i think.

    Successful relationships need a lot of give and take. My hubbie plays rugby and I'll never stop him or expect him to stop playing. It's what he enjoys and it helps him get rid of the tension from a weeks work. At the same time, he knows what competing means to me so he supports me as much as he can.

    my girl doesn;t mind me training at all, she gos to the gym loads too.

    however, she is a bit of a fussy easter and when we move intogether (couple of months) i wonder whether my constant desire for protein will both her.

    should be ok though, shes pretty cool

    all will be fine mate as long as you dont change what you do now.it seems that is where the probs come in when people try to change the other partners routines,ways etc.

    there is nothing more encouraging in this world as when your partner tells you she or he can tell the difference in your physique.she can tell me as much as she wants i love it and her(just in case she reads this)lol

    My girlfriend is great, she is also keen to be a healthy eater so we eat most clean healthy meals together, although she does get the chocolate/biscuits/crisps etc lol.

    She is sensitive to me though and tries not to pig out in front of me too much, she never gets much over 7 1/2 stone no matter what she eats!

    I find the biggest issue is I have a 20 month old son and obviously I can't spend as much time as I would training if I didn't have him... not that I begrudge it but you know what I'm saying...

    Mine is into getting a better physique and so on - which I am definately all for. I try to advise him (on diet) and discourage his extremely bad habits. All I can say is that he will be referring to me as Il Duce in about a week.

    Mine hates it, she doesn't like the fact that I'm so strict with eating, doesn't want me to change my body because she likes the way it is etc. etc.

    Would love to meet someone who's as passionate about healthy eating, keeping fit and working out as me. I meet some really nice guys but always look at them and think they'd be more attractive if they had 'muscles'. Shallow i know but sadly thats the kind of men that im attracted to
