How big were you when you met your partner?
We were both lighter - I have actually gained 22 kg since then. He probably not as much but I was slimmer than him when we met. He says he doesn't mind, and in fact he is the one tempting me with fast food and treats - I am the one pushing for both of us to lose weight and become fitter.

What do you tell people who ask how much have you lost?
Good point, I always fear that the same people who comment on me having lost weight are the kind of people who behind my back talk about how much weight I gain when that happens. I don't like how obsessed and sensationalist some people are with these things - you're right it should be private. What also annoys me is when a slim person moans at me about having gained half a stone over Christmas - is it supposed to make me feel better? Well it doesn't because that person probably still weighs 40 kg less than me! That said, yu should just tell your husband how you feel about what he does, he might not realize at all that you are uncomfortable with it. Men can be a bit oblivious. ;)

How Often Do you weigh yourself?
Ditto with the obsessive part, I try hard only to do it weekly now because otherwise I tend to panic...lol

Encouragment
Oh man I know this feeling... I absolutely hate when I gain weight (or even stay the same) when I've been good and expect to see a weight loss on the scales. Sometimes I took this to crazy starvation levels - e.g. only eating 500 calories a whole day just out of panic over unexpected weight gain. Obviously that didn't work either! I guess patience is the key. Don't feel bad!

Get Started
I know just how you feel... I didn't even get on the wagon myself... Just watched it crash into a wall from a safe distance. :D Well, like you I am feeling motivated to finally get started. I wish you good luck on your journey!

Hi everyone. I found a pretty good hack for fixing the inconsistent exercise syncing between Fitbit and FatSecret. As noted above, Fitmess is gone and the FatSecret sync with Fitbit only works about half ...
