DH lost over a pound this week, so he's almost back to pre-vacation weight (he only gained 3 but had a 2 week long trip to Russia shortly afterwards and it's been hard for him). But he looks so different; the two-sizes-lower pants that we bought him before vacation are getting loose, his legs are changing shape, and his back is getting a little bit narrower. He's having obvious changes that others can see, even though the scale is going slow. Thank goodness it's not just me telling him about these changes.
I'm glad he's getting positive comments from people. I think I'll take my measurements this week for the weeks it feels like the pounds aren't going down. Your dh and I have pretty much the same amount to lose so tell him I'm right there with him

Yes take those measurements! It's the hardest thing to do, but it's so rewarding later on (says a person who couldn't face it early on and now regrets it). with men's sizes he sort of has to know his waist measurement, unlike women, though I guess we have to know bust size as we lose weight. Anyway, you will thank yourself later on.

Yesterday we took all his old jeans and khakis to goodwill, so that some bigger men can have more selection while shopping there. It made him so happy to see them go.

I will tell him what you said! He likes support, that's for sure.


Last night I finally calculated the points for the candy today...6 for a serving of the little Reese's peanut butter eggs and 5 for the crunch "nest eggs". Always good to do before you open the package!

Neat for your dh!

Totally agree on the pre-calculating!! Means you enjoy your treat without guilt.

I had a box of teeny Lindt gold bunnies for dh and I...calculated the points, only 2 per. Was looking forward to it. And I LOST them! I put them "in a safe place" so the kids wouldn't find them.

I think the pinched/ill look is part of it. I also think that for some people dieting is an obsession/addiction. The food addiction gets turned upside down and is refocused to weight loss, exercising and counting calories/points. The scale, the clothes and the comments are all positive reinforcement. I do think that some comments are based in jealousy but I think most of them are based on true concern about addition & eating disorders.
I just wanted to make sure that everyone knew this was NOT directed at anyone on the thread. I don't think anyone here has an eating disorder .

I hadn't actually seen that post (I tend to miss chunks of posts), but it's an interesting thought, that it's coming from concern over something like that. Though with me anyone who is close knows that I experimented with bulemia one summer break during college and actually GAINED weight. There went that experiment, thank goodness! It was highly unpleasant.

Wow! Yay! Have you decided to keep going, or are you now setting yourself into maintenance mode?

I was so happy to get on the WII (and not have it yell at me) I over did it!!! I Hoola-Hooped for way too long, and then tried to do the step aerobics-- was I was not qualified to do. But I still did it. I couldn't walk at all the next day. But the thrill of being able to actually use the Fitness board was exciting!!!

I am in maintenance mode. I am going to do that and keep running and strength training to tone up the areas I'm not 100% happy with yet. I don't think I need to lose any more, I just need to tone.
