Last night my OH stepped on the scales and discovered he'd lost a stone. He's not even on a diet!

He's been the little devil on my shoulder, sneaking pringles and cake into the shopping trolley and turning up with take-away, but as i've been in a diet, he seems to have lost weight by proxy. 

He weighs less than me, and he's lost more weight too. I'm in a huff now.

Edit: so I have to update this. I stepped on the scales myself, and they annoinced I had lost 3lbs since yesterday... I thought something was foul, then realised a tiny corner of the scales was resting on the bath mat. I moved them, and regained my 3lbs. I told OH to try again, and he put 6lbs on! He's now the one in a huff with me... I'm feeling slightly smug :D

Yes -your world is my world.  I have just had to get over it and accept I have v trim husband who cares about what he weighs.

But yes - simply not fair....


Well my OH doesn't really care what he weighs, always likes to think it's muscle weight! But he was a bit smug to have gotten back to his uni/teen weight.


So unfair!  My husband lives off sweets, chocolate, crisps and anything he fancies as well as substantial meals.  He stays the same weight.  It is not a "healthy" weight - he is definitely grossly overweight, but his weight doesn't change whatever he eats, and he sits on the sofa almost permanently day and night.

If I ate what he ate - or even proportionately less taking my height into consideration I would continuously put on weight until I was unable to move or fit through the door.  If I don't regularly exercise and watch what I eat I continuously increase in size.  To constantly be on a diet is my only choice if I actually want to stay alive and healthy. 

And since our recent holiday (on which I put on 4.4kg) he has been demonstrating that his trousers are looser.  Damn him!

Ha ha, yeah, so frustrating that men can eat so much rubbish! At the end of the day though, I think it's important to be healthy too, so think how much your arteries are thanking you!


Hehehe 😂 Sorry but this really made me laugh!! My hubby loses weight every time we have had a healthy eating burst!! Grrrr
