Our Current Weight-Loss Project

Two years ago, the two of us began working together to lose weight as a couple. Using a transformational combination of team work, behavior modification and craving-management techniques, Weight Watchers® (click here for our quick summary of the Weight Watchers® offerings), and lots of mutual love and understanding, we have together lost 100 pounds between us, turned our weight loss into a fun and romantic sharing process, and maintained our new weights. We are delighted to announce that we have just finished a new e-book telling our story:


  • Eager to lose weight with your partner and strengthen your relationship at the same time?

  • Ready to benefit from the support, encouragement and ideas of a couple who's done it?

"“Not only does this resource-laden book provide an easy to follow, practical and honest narrative on weight loss, it also served as a bonding experience in our marriage as we read it to each other page-by-page. We were reminded of our shared vision of mutual support, renewed health and vitality. Together, we have lost 105 pounds.”

Excerpt from the Introduction:

"In a world that is gaining weight by the minute, weight loss is truly a life-saving topic. Sadly, the need for one or both members of a couple to lose weight very often becomes a source of conflict or criticism which separates the two as much as, or more than, the weight itself ever would. And conflict rarely helps reach the goals of weight loss, either!

We have had the experience of losing (over) 100 pounds as a couple and striving every step of the way not only to lose pounds but to protect and enrich our new-found love relationship in the process. We so often see partners criticizing one another for the need to lose weight in a way that damages their relationship. We want to describe some of the hard-earned lessons that helped us grow smaller and more loving at the same time."
