    Oh.. Could this be an issue then, OH been feeling 'not right' the last few days and says is really hungry.
    We had a heated debate about an M&S wrap yesterday lol! Although even when added to my fitnesspal he was still on track...oops!
    Argh!!!!

    Destiny this is what worries me he has weight to lose I monitor it all AND that flipping wrap! And he is eating sufficient to lose around a pound a week but nothing happening. He does try but gets disheartened when nothing happens...

    ... I want to see if he can have a thyroid test but not sure if they do those for men....
