    Why Nature Sometimes Sucks

    I was hoping to have something exciting to post but I'm going to have to disappoint my fans. I'm afraid I have the January blahs. The days seem to drag on after the holidays.

    I went to Mr. Sign's doctor appointment today. He is down 63 pounds from his highest weight. Do you have any idea how exacerbating that is to me? I'm happy for him but I'm disgusted with the fact that nature makes things so much harder on women.

    Our (ancient) primary care physician gave me his reasoning for why men lose weight faster. When the world was in it's human infancy, it only took one man to procreate with 20 women, therefore, women needed to thrive through all conditions, especially famine. Women's bodies are designed to hold onto all weight in order to produce and nourish an infant. I hate to admit that the old geezer makes sense.

    My late wife and i started Weight Watchers together. I lost weight faster in the beginning, but she lost much more than me in the long run. I lost 50 pounds but she lost 80. So hang in there kid, you'll be the biggest looser in your house when you guys cross the finish line.

    Hubby loses faster than me too. I hate it when others notice he has lost weight then look at me and say when do you plan on losing weight! :(

    I'm so glad Mr. Sign is doing well. I like to think your Geezer-doc's explanation is a good one too!

    Suze said...

    Only 20 women! That sounds very specific. Lol

    I have a touch of the blahs too, give it time they do bugger off eventually. :)

    me loves women's bodies!:)

    don't get frustrated sweetie, it will all come.
    Actually it's more likely you will keep the weight off when losing gradually than a large amount quickly.

    Yep, women also have an extra layer of fat that men don't. Same reasoning. But it makes them feel so soft and cuddly! Let’s cuddle sweetie!

    Don't you worry about it, sister.

    Women are made of hardier stuff than men...it's that simple. We can bear the trials and tribulations.

    Take a look at yourself: mind, body, and soul. Aren't you more what your essence truly is NOW than you were back in October? THAT'S growth. Who cares about exact poundage numbers!

    happy 300th

    all the ladies i know say the same thing about men's ability to lose weight

    ----

    men may also be more single minded...

    while women are way better multi-taskers than men (in my experience) men can maintain this obsessive focus that i do not generally observe in women

    it may spill over in some strange way

    300 posts. Yowsah!

    It makes sense but it's still not fair. I'm not lovin the diet thing, can ya tell? LOL! I miss Hortons! And I think they miss me too.

    This is not a competition!

    Self defeating behavior is not going to help you make an important lifestyle change...

    Who cares who is losing weight faster?

    The important thing is that you are losing weight together.

    Right focus brings about right changes...

    Now c'mon, quit being a baby and enjoy the success you both are having!

    Share the victory, don't grouse about it.
