I know what you mean! My Fiance can lose weight like nothing when he barely puts any effort forth but it takes a lot of effort and then some on my part!

Fiance looks at the elliptical and loses 5lbs. He’s spent I think an hour total over the last two weeks on the thing, all the while drinking beer and eating pizza like it’s going out of style, and has lost 20lbs.  I’ve gained weight despite being pretty good about working out. I finally caved and joined a gym this week to force myself to work a little harder.

It’s sooooo annoying! Darling Husband is one of those frustrating people that needs to try to gain weight that I’ve always been incredibly envious of. I, on the other hand can merely look at a cookie and the fat will magically appear on my ass. The running joke in our house that whatever he loses, I manage to find. Grrr….

On the upside, his freakish metabolism forces me to keep up my healthy eating habits.

I totally feel your pain.

Yeah, my husband is three inches taller than me and weighs the same as I do, 165. It’s frustrating. Before the wedding, I tracked my calories to keep under 1500, so he downloaded the app and did the same as a show of solidarity. He regularly took in about 4000 calories a DAY…and he never gains a pound or goes to the gym. He’s 32 so I can’t really hang on to the “it’ll catch up to him” excuse any more. I hate him in the most loving way possible. :p

DH’s beer and pizza habit caught up to him a few months ago in the form of 15 pounds.  But, of course, he lost it all in about 2 weeks.  Seriously??  I’ve been losing the same 5-10 pounds for almost a year.  My sister is the same way, though.  She’s a tiny little thing, and it seems like she lives on Cheetos and Pepsi.  So unfair!!

Yes, I know what you mean! My boyfriend is thin and muscular, and stays that way with very little exercise and eats whatever he wants. . . and while I CAN get muscle definition quickly if I work at it, it’s almost impossible for me to lose pudge– especially belly pudge, yuk. It’s hard for me to stay motivated to go running or something every day, especially in this crappy Vermont early spring weather. . . . It’s so annoying but at least I have the small and silly comfort of thinking that hopefully our as-yet-nonexistent children will get HIS metabolism instead of mine!!

If you want long term weight loss you need to change your lifestyle in a sustainable way. Diets dont work, and in the case of the no-carb diet its dangerous. You need a slow steady change, you cant see resuts in one week.

It’s actually the opposite for us. Darling Husband has struggled SO much with his weight. He’s on a strictly no-carb (other than fruits, legumes, and nuts) diet, and he lost a lot of weight with that combined with exercise, but as soon as he stopped working out (due to an injury) he gained back 20 lbs in like two months. It’s SO frustrating for him.

I can’t eat whatever I want, but I don’t have nearly such a hard time maintaining my weight.
