I *do* resemble that remark...

From 1995-2003 my work pattern included 500ml - 1l of Mt Dew in the
morning and afternoon.

Those extra calories easily added up to the weight I gained over that
time.

I've finally kicked the Mt Dew habit, but man it is it one heck of a
pick-me-up in the afternoon.

I have SO BTDT, actually, I'm there every day. Watching my DH eat *two*
sandwiches with Nutella, or two PBJs. Seeing him take another serving of
potatoes with mayonaise, or an extra scoop of icecream and top it off with
whipped cream and blueberry syrup. Letting him take 3 cookies while I have
a small single one. And still he looks like a Greek god, not a gram of fat
too much on his body. Of course, he doesn't exercise at all.

The only way I can deal with it, is preventing I am too hungry at dinner
time, which I do by taking an apple 1 hour in advance. Luckily, I have
never had an appetite for breakfast. At least DH supports me by remarking
constantly how he admires my discipline and how he notices me losing the
weight. He better!

Ah, you sound young, Boemsi. It catches up with men, I assure you.
They carry it differently. The fat packs in around their organs long
before it goes subcutaneious and jiggles. When he stands up in profile
does his belly jut out, or sink in below the ribs? He may not be as fit
as you think.

Aside from that, it's a losing proposition to try to eat the same as an
active metabolism person. Eat differently. No reason to have cookies
or potatoes with mayonaise or nutella in the house, IMO. (Especially
Nutella. We're not safe in the same home together.)

Please eat breakfast. And plan a before-dinner snack. My advice would
be to add peanutbutter to that apple, or maybe some a slice or two of
low-fat cheddar cheese.

But back to the topic of infuriating men... I was at my husband's
workplace summer last week. My role there is to show up with attractive
children and not do anything memorable. (I've been married a long time,
I know my job.) So I'm listening to his co-workers praise how much
weight he's lost using phrases like, "he really worked hard at that" and
I'm biting my tongue trying not to tell the truth, which is that *I*
went on a diet and *he* automatically lost 20 pounds.

Seriously.

Ooh, I'm flattered! I've been waiting for that His father does have a
tendency to develop bit of a belly, got that after he hit 40, so we have
about 6 more years to go. As a contrast, all the women in my family have a
tendency towards pear shaped figures, so my genetics isn't favourable. DH
knows he isn't as fit as he could be, in part because he used to bike a
*lot*, but since we moved we lost that opportunity.

Hehe, there's no arguing about the Nutella with a 2y/o around the house.
But I never liked the stuff one bit, so I am safe. I do eat breakfast:
some non-fat yogurt with Kashi cereal. It gives me a good protein boost
for the day and enough energy to last until lunch.

I'm biting my tongue trying not to tell the truth, which is that *I*
went on a diet and *he* automatically lost 20 pounds.


That's what generally happens with us too... I have given up on watching
men loose 10-20lb in a blink, while I am working for weeks to even loose a
single pound. At this point I've accepted that my body is just different.
I'll wait until I can easily outrun or outbike my DH, then his competitive
nature will kick in: he'll do anything to change that
