View Full Version : Grrr...I'm up, he's down?!?!

05-21-2007, 07:52 AM
Yesterday, I busted my butt doing outdoor work (with my kids)...

For the most part hubby was inside, working, paper work...nothing physical. After he finished he worked outside for a good hour or 2.

I ate less than him yesterday and didn't eat for 3 hours before bed, he ate an apple right before bed.

This morning, we weighed in (we are having a contest between us) and I'm UP 1 pound...he's DOWN 2 lbs!!! http://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley7.gif

How does that happen? I feel like the Slimquick commercial. http://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley36.gifEdited by: mctaza1

One thing to keep in mind....men lose weight faster than women - I don't know why, but they do.

yes... don't get down on your self. I would recommend doing total of weight-loss % instead & measuring yourselves. The scale weight can bounce up and down through out the day.


Hope this helps.

Thanks! http://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley4.gif

It seems so unfair that he can drop weight faster. http://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley36.gif He does have about 10 more lbs than I to lose, so, I figured it'd be a fair contest...after today I'm wondering if my theory will work.

I hear ya.. I yoyo on the scale all them time. It's very frustrating. I got my body fat tested and my measurements taken so I'm going to go by that. Although I still weigh myself all the time!
