DH has never been lardy but due to other health issues he's been on a rather restrictive diet. I have eaten the same foods too. It's all super healthy, fresh fruit and veg and pretty much vegan, low carbs etc.

This has been going on for about 3 weeks now. We do a comparable amount of exercise.

He has lost about 9 pounds (he is eating considerably less than he was).
I have lost...........3 pounds.

He is parading around the house claiming that dieting is easy and he has no idea why everyone finds it so hard.

Should I slip some butter in his dinner tomorrow?

(Please note that this is a lighthearted thread and I have no desire to have any dietary advice or analysis of why I haven't lost weight, I am simply sharing my frustration.)

Are you handy with a needle at all? You could sew small weights into his kecks - and few more after each weigh in - that'll teach the smug git.

haha im imagining him twirling around ala "the sound of music"
i bet he wont be saying that when the weight loss plateaus as it eventually does.

try measuring yourself instead of relying on scales - your result will be better i bet xx

Yes to buttering his potatoes, carrots and peas.

Grated cheese onto his pasta

And switch to cream in his coffee, or decant full fat milk into the semi and plead ignorance.

I have for my sins beenot paired with DH who is quick to lose weight, but slow to decide to lose it and has an incredibly short memory when it comes to putting it back on.

He weighs himself in the nip so I can't sew weights into anything.
I could replace his non dairy 'milk' for gold top. That'll do it.

It's a bloke thing. Most men drop weight quickly when dieting. Local slimming club, most male members early drop 4/5lb a week following same diet as the women.

It's because he's a man, men use more calories just existing than women.

DH drives me mad, he eats crap and never puts on a pound. I only have to look at a chocolate bar to put on weight sad
