Finding a partner who can support you in your journey to body acceptance and body positivity is key, and someone who can't accept that everyone's bodies change throughout life can be incredibly toxic. Support groups and friends who are also going through the same body image challenges can be beneficial for many people as it's nice to vent to someone other than a romantic partner.

She used to take pride in the fact that she would push herself to the limit to keep up with me fitness-wise. However after our 4 year old and 3 year old girls were born my fiancée began saying that using the elliptical and treadmill at the gym already constituted “pushing herself to the limit.”
