??? You’re both going to get old and ugly. Fact. Take care of yourself health wise, that’s the most respectful thing you can do for your spouse. If these surface level anxieties are concerning you I suggest some marriage counseling. Not trying to be a jerk, just experience after being with my SO for 15 years.

I don't know OP, I'm not a therapist and this is a sensitive subject. From my personal experience, I love food, but I like feeling and looking fit even more. Watching TV and eating ice cream is definitely better than working out(I love working out too), but I embrace the suck. Yeah, it's gonna suck, but the end state is better. So even when I don't want to I get up and do it. Soon it becomes an habit, and when I see good results it becomes a nice little positive feedback loop. Ask your husband to include you, I'm sure he'll love to train you/with you. A few days of suck and then it's habit. Good luck.

Would love to share; except then what’s the point of posting anonymously? Plus any non face pic would prob violate some sort of posting rule. Imagine JT, fuller lips, long curly eyelashes, more vibrant blue eyes and Mark Wahlberg body at peak 🍑 lol

This is so adorable. Never change. My GF is the hotter one. I'm working on losing weight. She's reassuring me that it doesn't matter vs other traits... So I remind myself that to keep from over obsessing.

My wife is an “instagram influencer” with 100k+ followers and I’m a fat fuck. Moral of the story: there is none, our significant others love us for reasons beyond our understanding and we can try harder for them sincerely and without resentment.

Don't be so hard on yourself OP. Would you have cared as much about lounging around of you started off this relationship the "prettier one"? First off, beauty is in the eye of the beholder so clearly he thinks you are gorgeous. Second, a stunning looking man is more rare than a beautiful woman, so it is given more weight in society, simple supply and demand. I think the initial seed of insecurity, along with to much time to overthink is creating this stress in your head. That "usual routine" you mentioned above is intense. Give yourself a break! Be nice to yourself. And by nice I mean supportive. Whatever you decide to do, back yourself up and stop second guessing. Wanna workout. Go. Wanna chill. Do so. But with conviction and pride and 100% commitment. You are just torturing yourself by constantly second guessing. You are sitting on the sofa but hating on yourself for not working out. Be a better friend to yourself dear. 🌺

Both have wanted to offer the time for me to ask them questions with little questions in return. Is this expected or lack of prep?
