Re: Some advice for my wife please.

joe-

i started zoning a few weeks ago and started CF in Nov. i hit a plateau with just CF so i knew it was my diet. within a week i noticed a big change in my appearance and performance but not my weight. with women it's just up and down. since i started the zone i have yo-yo'd between 157-155. but i have noticed that i've been losing inches and am leaning out.

i think i started (13 Jan) out with a 37" waist at the navel and am now down to 35" (6 Feb).

ditch the scale or at least don't obsess over it. measurements and visual changes are what show me my progress.

good luck!

That's totally normal. Most of someone's weight changes from day to day are JUST WATER!!

I weight myself about once a week. It's a much better indication of gradual weight loss than the day to day measure.

Remembered, 1 liter of water weighs 1kg or 2.2 pounds or about FOUR 8 ounce glasses of water!! (hopefully my math is right... )

As they say, "A pint is a pound the world round." (One liter is a little more than 2 pints).
