We both looked a lot better before the wedding, and I knew she had the motivation and enthusiasm to get us both back in the gym and on track.Dr. Deb Says:Uh oh… You’re counting on someone else’s motivation and enthusiasm to magically translate into a change in your behavior? You’ve got to find your own!He Said:Thing is, I already enjoy going to the gym. It’s a great escape from my crazy work schedule. I love getting on the treadmill and sweating my stresses away.
