We started weight loss classes at the same time. She has lost twice as much weight as me. ( she is two stone heavier than me) at first I was really pleased for her. But now when I ask her how she thinks she has done each week, she rattles off loads of food she has eaten, while I have been very saintly! She has also just started taking thyroxine for her under active thyroid, so I said that this is probably helping. She has just come from a check up to announce that she is losing weight naturally not from the drugs. I love my sis and want her to do well and her health issues to improve, but the nasty little side of me is a green eyed starving monster! Just writing this has helped me get it off my chest. Rant over.
It must be frustrating but as long as you are losing you should be fine. Slow and steady win the race!!!! And it's easier to maintain if you lose it a bit slower. You shouldn't be starving though!!! Keep it going and good luck.
She has more to lose, those with the most to lose do tend to lose weight the fastest at first. Losing a pound when you are 4 stone over weight is easy, losing a pound when you are only 4 pounds overweight is a lot harder.
Try to build some more exercise into your lifestyle.
you sound like my sister. I have 50 pounds to lose she has 10-15. I WILL lose more weight than her on the same diet because its easier to lose the more you have to lose. I would be upset if I thought she was annoyed by that!.
I haven't showed I'm annoyed with her, or tried not too! The other thing is she eats crap food. No fruit or veg, and up to dieting, her salad crisper in her fridge had her choc bars!
It's a good point at her losing quicker as she is heavier. I still have a lot to lose ( 4 stone to my target, but I haven't weighed 9 st since I was 16!) I lost some weight before I had my dd14, and it was slow and steady then.
