Default Husband still losing

So my husband hit his goal weight last week so he moved to phase 2. He had a weigh in today and he had lost over 3 lb again this last week.

Doctor was worried it might be his thyroid but I know from a few others you sometimes still lose on Phase 2... but that much more? They are having him move on to phase 3 and if he still loses a bunch next week may have him get his thyroid tested.

He had it tested before we started the diet and it was normal, which I am not sure why the doctor had it tested originally, I think he was just tired etc and she wanted to rule everything out.

Thoughts? Now me when I hit my goal it's okay if I lose some more but he REALLY doesn't want to lose anymore, especially when it's till 3-4 lb a week!

I didn't lose in phase 2 but lost 5 lbs in phase can be still in ketosis in phase 2 and even into phase 3 when you're not in ketosis your body can give you almost a "free" week.

Good that he has a doctor watching it!

I had told him originally to change his goal as it had been 150 because I was worried he would still lose.

I guess we will see what the next week brings. My firned in phase 3 was still losing .5-1 lb a week for 5 weeks, but she hadn't lost everything she wanted in Phase 1 so it was okay with her!

Congrats to your hubby on making goal! That's awesome! And also, isn't it annoying how much faster men lose weight than us? If he's worried, it's good that a doctor is keeping an eye on things. Sounds like it's not that abnomal to keep losing in Phase 2.
As for myself, I hope to keep losing once I hit Phase 2. I plan on doing that around the first of June, regardless of my weight at that time. Since I know weight loss slows as you get closer to goal, I know that I may not be at goal by that time. But I'm still going to move to Phase 2, and then to Phase 3 and try my hand at maintenance over the summer. I'm going to need the mental break from Phase 1 by that time! If I get back into the mindset, I may reboot and go back to Phase 1 to get to goal...but we'll see. So far, I'm happy with my weight loss, I can now shop in regular stores, and my health has improved about 100%! I will be even more awesomely cool by June!

I ended up staying on phase 2 for 4 weeks because I wanted to give myself a "cushion". I lost about a pound a week, but I also added more strenuous exercise. I am finished with the first week of phase 3 and have not gained or lost. I know everyone is different....

My losses continued into Phase 4. I went into Phase 2 about 2 lbs over my goal and had continued to lose to 8 lbs under goal. These 10 lbs came off over a 2+ month period. I'm 3 months into maintaince now and have been pretty stable (2-3 lb range) for the last month or so.
I won't worry about the additional losses unless he his heading for the "underweight" category.

I'm 9 days into Phase 2 - I lost 2.2lbs after being on Phase 2 for a week, and I weighed myself this morning and I'm down another 1.6lbs! I wouldn't worry too much about it. We are still at a calorie deficit in P2 and P3, just a smaller one If he is STILL losing in maintenance and tracking calories shows that he's eating enough, that's when you may want to get it checked. Till then, no worries

My hubby is losing weight and he is not even on IP. It is because I've changed what we are both eating, but I told him to stop it! One of my goals is to weigh less than him.
