I've just had weigh in number 8 and lost 2lbs. While I'm delighted with the loss, an interesting thing happened last week. I joined the gym. I was sick of loosing 3lbs a week & wanted to loose an extra lb per week, so joined a gym to give me the required kick up the rear. Last Wednesday, Thursday & Friday I burned up 400 calories of cardio in the gym. Drank 4 litres of water each day to compensate for the water loss. Swam 20 lengths of the pool yesterday and end up loosing only 2lbs for the whole week. It's not TOTM or anything so no excuse. I've decided if I don't loose more than 2 or 3lbs next week, I'm not doing gym any more till I 've reached goal. What is it with women's bodies and why are they so bloody slow to lose compared to mens!
