    I really can't get my head round this one. last week lost 4 3/4 lbs, this week gained 1 lb but am down a full dress size! including knickers lol! Last week hubby lost not much and I had a big loss, this week he lost 3 lbs and I gained eating the same things (we are on the same points)
    Go figure. Need to keep motivated so pls kick me up the bum :mad:

    Are you exercising more than him? i would say (novice on these things so could be wrong) that you are gaining muscle and toning your body. Did you measure ur husband and if so has he lost inches as well?
    well done on dropping a full dress size that is very impressive

    yes he has lost inches. I am not exercising at all at the mo cause i have just had a minor op to my foot. I am also hypothyroid which sometimes throws me a curve so think I have to suck it up but today has been an awful eating day. thanks for the input x

    Just keep thinking about how you WILL fit into whatever your perfect size is. Scales can sometimes be off, and its by no means evident of your hard work. The fact you are losing inches too is a huge indicator of that!! Keep at it and the pounds WILL shift. xx

    Thanks Hanna, i am in much better frame of mind today and sticking to programme like glue !! IT WILL COME OFF! Just impatient me .
    I spent yesterday altering clothes to fit and was feeling good about how much I had to take in . Soon will have to get rid of them because it will be impossible to alter them any more.

    congrats on changing size so drastically, that's got to be such an awesome incentive, if a little bit of hard work altering your clothes! x

    Well done vicki that's brill, don't worry too much what the scales say it's the inchs that counts,

    Funny story actually my dad was weighed at the doctors and he weighs 10st 10lb he is 5 ft 7 & wears size xl t-shirts my daughter who is 5ft4 and weighs 10st 3 and is a size 10 and very slim, we were pretty surprised when he told us his weight the other day as he weighs not much more than my daughter but he looks like he weighs more than he does even weighed him on our scales cos thought he must of heard gp wrong lol
