Motivating eachother

What are some strategies for positively influencing or motivating your spouse?
If you think of it as an act of love, then your partner will too. Approach your partner and simply say, “I know eating anything at any time of the day works for you, but for me, I need help.” Then ask for that help. At the same time, acknowledge and appreciate how big the sacrifice is to your spouse. Most will respond by changing their habits around you. It can also change their habits when you are not around too. Ultimately the best motivation is to show them how good you feel and look. After a couple weeks of consistently eating healthy, this will be easy to do.
