- Are you at least 18 years old?
- Have you been participating in a weight loss program for the last 5 consecutive weeks?
- Have you been in a committed, cohabitating relationship for the last two years?
- Do you ever feel like your current partner/spouse gets in the way of your weight loss?
Besides helping to advance scientific inquiry on this topic, each participant who completes the survey may also select to have $1 donated by the researcher to the participant’s choice of 1 of these 5 charities: Playworks, The Carter Center , Teach for America, Susan G. Komen for the Cure, or MAP International. Additionally, participants may opt to enter a drawing for 1 of 10 gift cards (one $100 card and nine $25 cards). The survey should take between 30-45 minutes and the responses cannot be tracked back to you.
I told Amanda I would gladly take her survey, but I do not meet the parameters. Fortunately for me but unfortunately for the survey, my wife is supportive and encouraging in every way of my weight loss. She also is trying to lose weight and is doing really well. In fact I affectionately call her "the carb buster" because she is the driving force of limiting carbs in our house.
I know how hard it is to lose weight even with a supportive spouse, I cannot imagine how hard it must be if you have a spouse that is sabotaging your efforts. If you find yourself in this situation, why not help Amanda transition from being Amanda to being Dr. Amanda and take her survey. All the information you need is here.
