I have been following TRP and MRP for over a year, and read all the sidebars, and have applied many aspects of MRP to my 1.5 year relationship to great success.
But, how can you get your wife to understand weight-loss? Mine is about 10 pounds away from looking amazing. She works out. eats good for the most part, but gets frustrated when she's not losing weight.
I have been steadily losing 1 pound a week, and have recently hit 10% bf. When I tell her how little I eat (compared to what I was before) she says "omggg you must be starving, why do you do that?" I tell her that I am hitting my allotted number of calories for the day and that has gotten me to lose 15 pounds and closer to my goal.
No matter how many times I try and tell her to count her calories and track cals in vs. cals out, she just gets all emotional. Yet she'll text me a few days later saying she wants to try the next fad diet.
