Im having a difficult period on my diet too these past few weeks…and my Fiance eats enough for 4 people and STILL loses weight…it’s crazy!

For me the key is to not give up when Im going through a hard time diet-wise….then I just end up binging cause I’m thinking “Nothing works! Screw it!”

So…I just try to keep going and eventually I feel better about everything and I’m back on track..

 

Good luck!

Yes. Yes yes yes.

FI’s favorite food is bacon. His grandfather had a restaurant (where Fiance learned to cook) and Fiance is STILL FRIGGIN’ THIN. Maybe not as thin as back when we started dating, but that’s age. Lol. I, on the other hand, can look at a picture of a cupcake and gain 1498954 pounds. :p Booooooo.

I know, it’s so unfair! I have a friend who seriously can eat 3 whole, greasy pizzas in one sitting, and he does often enough. And he’s one of the skinniest guys I know!!! Grr.

My Maid/Matron of Honor also has a high metabolism. She can really put it away and she still slim.

My husband and I recently did the Game On! Diet & Fitness Challenge. He hadn’t been working out at all and his eating habits left something to be desired before the game – then he added in the required 20 minutes of exercise per day (walking and jogging on the treadmill) and eating 5 balanced “mini meals” per day… and he lost 4.4lbs in the first week!!! Meanwhile I struggled to make weight because I had already been losing prior to the game.

I use Noom Weight Loss app for Droid, I love it. Between that and now doing Supreme 90 Day workout system, I’m starting to see movement on the scale again. Of course, in a week, I’m going on vacation, so we’ll see how that goes…

Darling Husband was freaking out because in the three years we’ve been together, he has gained TWO POUNDS. Two pounds! Try twenty, hubs, and then we’ll talk about sadness. 😛

@Mrs.Grape – ugh, that’s irritating! I was 130lbs when Darling Husband and I met, and then 4 years later, was up to 160… I started losing weight in 2009 (actively working out and eating healthier), and was down to 145 when Darling Husband proposed. I got down to 131 for the wedding, as I tried to get back to what I was when we met. Now I’m working to maintain a weight between 125-130, and it’s so hard for me. Meanwhile, the weight just FALLS off of him.

Mr Roux has recently lose about 7kg/15lbs, in about a 6 week period. He dropped 2 pants sizes and we had to buy him new jeans and work pants. All he did was cut out energy drinks and easy mac. While in the same amount of time I have been doing C25K, watching what I eat, cooking healthy, trying not to snack, taking the stairs, and I’ve only lost 2kg (4lbs). And then when I got home on Friday there was a family size bag of chips on the counter with a note saying I could have them. I ate a large handful and then knew I would eat the rest if they were there, so I crushed thems up and threw them in the bin. He just doesn’t get that leaving me tempting food isn’t nice, its cruel!
