I’m pleasantly surprised how much traction this “staying fit” throughout life – even during and especially after having children – is gaining in our culture. It’s still a somewhat taboo topic that seems to inflame many people wanting to deny that weight and healthy body size matters, but it makes me happy to see more people writing about it in a positive way.
Here is an article with a title I couldn’t have picked better myself (so elated!!):
This is undeniably true, and yet, sadly, we just are not “allowed” to talk about this – or write about this – without people being offended at the simple truth. Men are visual and love to see their wives looking sexy and thin. Being fit and in shape makes them less likely to feel tempted all the time by other women, or to look at porn even, according to my husband!
Give the article a click, it’s a good, balanced read.
So yes, I agree, staying fit for your husband truly IS one of the “best gifts” you can give him. 😉
