How Women and Men Decide What They’ll Do

SHARE
The thought processes and the logic used to arrive at a decision about what weight-loss approach to take tends to be different for women and men. Most women prefer diplomacy; they want to have in-depth discussions with a variety of people and explore as many solutions as possible. Most men, on the other hand, declare war. Guys are much less inclined to spend a lot of time talking with a lot of people; they prefer to make a decision and act on it.
Before starting a weight-loss program, many women feel com- pelled to discuss their options and goals with others—men and women. A woman is much more likely than a man to talk for quite some time—weeks, months, even years—about her desire to lose weight. Thats because before she makes her final decision, a woman needs to confer with several other people—her spouse or significant other, family members, coworkers, friends, and, most important, other successful “losers” at weight loss. Primarily, they are investigating what weight-loss methods are likely to have the best results for them. For example, it is not uncommon for a woman to ask a coworker who lost a visible amount of weight to share his or her insight on the topic. If the coworker is a woman, most likely she will welcome the oppor- tunity to share her story, and the two women will enter into a long dia- logue about what works and what doesnt. If the coworker is a man, he will probably appreciate the fact that the woman noticed his weight loss, but he’ll be much less likely to provide a blow-by-blow account of what hes done to achieve it.
Looking at the way many men make their decisions regarding weight can be  baffling to  women. Thats because when a  man announces that he is going to get into shape and lose weight, it often takes a woman by surprise; it may even be the first time she has heard him talk about it. What many women dont understand is that most men prefer to solve their problems silently and on their own rather
than discuss them with others. So when a man announces his inten-tion to lose weight, its more than likely that hes been mulling over the decision for some time. In a survey of male users of Weight Watchers Online, the guys reported that the decision to subscribe was not a spur-of-the-moment event but the outcome of a period of dissatisfac- tion with their weight.
The fact that women and men both eventually make the decision to lose weight and then pick an approach puts them on common ground. What members of the opposite sex need to realize and respect is that the processes each sex uses to arrive at that point are different and serve different purposes.
