Get use to it. Men always lose weight easier than women. Could be their higher muscle content, could be because our bodies are made to store fat to nourish a baby when we become pregnant. Whatever it is he will always find it easier lose weight than you will.

Yup. Men generally lose weight faster than women. Get used to it, keep going. You'll get there. On the other hand, weight loss tend to show less on men, so you probably will get the compliments first. Smile

I went from morbidly obese to being the owner of TABDIG - a weight loss coaching service that helps people worldwide losing weight. It's been an amazing journey. From October 4th 2010 to April 3rd 2012 I lost half my body weight - 80 kilos/170 lbs. Since then, I have had two cosmetic surgeries to remove excess skin. I have now quadrupled my strength, gained several kilos in muscle mass, and today I focus on building muscle, optimizing my diet, living healthy and helping people to reach the very same goals. I am stronger, healthier, thinner, happier! If you feel that you need help losing weight, don't hesitate to send me an inbox message.

you can bitch about it and complain and get mad... you can even hit a pillow and write a sob story, paint a lovely angry picture...

And then you get over it Smile

It's unfair...they do three sit ups and lose 20 lbs, we do 300 situps to lose 2 lbs... oh well.

The good news is men's clothing are ugly and shapeless... women's skinny clothes are fab and sexy! Very Happy

sooo... with that in mind, keep going and you'll see results soon enough! Very Happy

LOL @ arse2. You really live up to your user name. How about force feeding him sugar and fat in his sleep? Very Happy

Yep, so not fair, but men do loose faster and eaiser. They naturally have more muscle mass so therefore burn more calories than women do. I lost 3 last week, my husband lost 9 on the Advocare Cleanse. Sad

because we all know it's sit-ups that govern weight loss and not a negative caloric balance...

I wish it were always true. My wife has passed me up by about 15lbs, and we have the same diet. Sad
