I hate men! (or how the diet is going)

DH has lost 11 pounds since we started the diet on Saturday! I've lost 2 pounds!! :(

It's not fair! He's even cheated more than I have!

Oh well....at least I've lost 2 pounds. It's better than gaining 2 pounds!

We've been eating eggs and bacon a lot for breakfast, or those low-carb cheese muffins I mentioned in the previous post. For lunch we usually have leftovers and for dinner we've eaten broiled lamb chops and broccoli (Saturday), ranch chicken and salad (Sunday), and last night we had a wonderful lo-carb gluten free pizza! The crust is made with cheese, eggs, and cream cheese (I know it sounds weird but it works); here is the link to the recipe: Deep Dish Low-Carb Pizza.

Anyway, I did cheat a little last night for the first time....we have some leftover gluten free chocolate chip cookies in the house and I just couldn't resist them.

But DH has eaten some of them since we started dieting and he STILL lost ELEVEN pounds!!

It's a bit frustrating, to say the least.

Argh! I share your pain. Hubby just has to *decide* to lose weight, and he drops five pounds. Me on the other hand...it takes forever, and then if I *think* about overeating
i mysteriously gain a pound. I think, in all seriousness, that having had the digestive problems I've had most of my life my body switches into "starvation mode" really easily, and then hangs onto every last ounce for dear life. All those years of not absorbing nutrients properly seem to have done a number on my metabolism or something! It's great that you're already losing weight, though...I know you'll continue to and that you'll feel much better in the process.

Thanks, Erica!

I can relate...my body is definitely in starvation mode and is constantly trying to store up more and more for the big famine it seems to think is coming! That really makes it hard.

I know that I just have to focus and take one day at a time right now. :)

Losing 11 lbs that quickly - it was probably water not fat. Two pounds per week is more reasonable. Slow and steady wins the race. Hang in there.

Thanks for the encouraging words, Anne!
