Why Do Men Lose So Much Faster?!?!

Friday, July 29, 2011

Hubby is down another 5 lbs this week for a total of 17 lbs lost in 27 days!! His blood sugar actually got too low for the first time today in the 2 years since he was diagnosed with Diabetes. He ate a piece of fruit to bring it back up. Although I am so happy for him, I am bummed that my no weight loss continues to day 17. Can I call this a plateau yet? Or is my body still adjusting?

He also took the scale away from me today while I was at work so I would stop obsessing. When I was losing, I would only get on every couple of days, then when I stopped, I got on the darn thing 3 or 4 times a day thinking magically the numbers would change and all would be right again in the world.

A special shout out to MOMOFJTEAM who recommended Culturelle for my constipation program and it did indeed "work like a charm". Thank you SO MUCH!!!

    Gabby, I am on C2D10 and the scale has not moved since C1D10, 17 days ago. I lost 15lbs in the first 10 days but I think it was really just fluid (cuz I do retain fluid alot, and even take meds, but its not enough). I am also having issues with being hypothyroid and my doctor said its just gonna be harder for me to lose weight going forward. Just needed to vent somewhere about hubby weight loss cuz I really am so happy for him!!

Dahndee, 5-25 lbs in the colon huh? WOW!!! I wish I could say I was storing 25 lbs!!! Thanks for the suggestion of water, I have always drunk drink of water a day, as thats all I drink.

I am actually beginning to think its the Kefir and Yogurt. Those are the only items I was NOT eating before as I was never a big milk/yogurt person.

    It DOES suck! Men lose so much faster because they carry more muscle then we do, that is why it's important for all us women to workout with weight as well as cardio.

I have a book on different detox's and it said that people can carry anywhere from 5-25 pounds of hardened waste in our colon. Make sure your water intake is sufficient too!

    I know, it's sickening isn't it? My DH isn't even trying to diet and his pants are starting to fall down because he's eating what I fix for myself as well as his snacks.It really isn't fair.
What do you mean by no weight loss to day 17? How much weight have you lost and what cycle/day are you on?
