Happy and Sad at The Same Time
Wednesday, October 24, 2012
My husband and I started our getting healthy program October 14, 2012. I've been eating healthy foods and exercising nightly. When I got home from work he had the scales out and ready for our first weigh in. Slowing climbing on the dreaded scales -yes I lost 1 pound. My husband jumped on the scales with a huge grin on his face -he's lost 25 pounds.
I'm happy for my husband. I just wish I could see my scale numbers decrease more!

You'll get there, hon. I know the men in my family always seemed to lose more faster... I think it's something to do with the fact they already start with more muscle in their bodies. Don't let it get you down.

they will--its always harder for women than men. you are getting more fit and strong every day--thats what really matters. more and more research is showing that body weight is not an overall indicator of health. find other measures that more accurately reward your hard work. you are doing so well!

Men, they can be so gosh darn aggravating, especially when they lose weight so easily, that has never seemed fair to me. But what are you going to do, gotta love them for so many of their good qualities.
I think I read on one of those quiz's they don't lose weight easier than we do, but I think that must be wrong.
You will catch up, now worries. Just keep working at it & you will be VICTORIOUS!!!

Have you noticed any other changes? Clothes getting looser? More energy? Feeling better and confident about yourself? These are just some of the ways to track your progress other than the scale.
Women's bodies are strangely complicated. We are affected by hormones, stresses, lack of rest, etc ... We think of others before ourselves. And the biggy: we do not listen to our bodies.
Hang in there, learn about you using trial and error approach, and you will find the best diet / exercise combo for you. Whatever you do, never give up on yourself.

Oh, husbands! Mine stops drinking pop and loses 15 pounds! If only women worked like that! But we can do it too. And the previous poster is right - it's the muscles! That's why we women have to do strength training too. Or a cross-training program that incorporates some muscle work into it, not just cardio. Hopefully things are looking up for you! Or down, way down, if you will! Good luck!!

Men are so fortunate-they always lose faster and more than us women! The muscles are the culprit!! Good for you -it is great doing it together-it helps!
