Don't you hate it when men eat more and lose more too! LOL! Hubby jumped aboard a month after me. He has lost EIGHT pounds in four day! And he's eating twice as much as me! LOL!

Ah well...that's life. I should be eating less than him.

One reason men lose quicker is they tend to have more muscle than women (and a tendency to gain muscle much easier than a woman can). One things we can do to combat that is strength training.

Just one of those things we can't do a darn thing about. Men are made up of more muscle and us lucky ladies are made up of more - fat. So be it.

You can't let it bug you. You've just got to persevere and keep on doing your own thing.

The kicker is yesterday he was "boo-hooing" because he ONLY lost a pound...in a day.

Now you must smack him. If it's the first week remember that it'll slow down. I lost 8 lbs in two weeks when I started dieting... I haven't seen that since lol.

My hubby annoys me too- he got up to 210 and was like "wow I need to watch what I'm eating" and just cut out red meat and soda for like a month and now is 190-195 ish- which is PERFECT for him cuz he's 6'2"... I hate him lol.

Yep, my husband his 6'. It's so much easier for him. He's feeling it today though. He said he was close to giving up. He hasn't lost a lb today ;) and he's hungry. So now I guess the work begins.

He weighs 267 (259 now I guess) and in his mind 180 is his ideal. So he's close to joining our club over here.
