A little bummed
It could be water weight, if you're really pushing yourself in the gym it's possible that your muscles are retaining water as they repair themselves. But it's more likely that while you're eating healthier, you're not eating fewer calories (lots of healthy foods are high in calories!).
You could try entering your calories and excercise into a program like www.sparkpeople.com . It's free to join and will help you get a better idea of calories going in and calories being used by exercise.
I once worked out at the gym for a whole month 3-4 times a week for atleast an hour and dropped 1 darn pound the entire time. It was soooo frustrating. But I did notice that I could breathe better (I have asthma), and had more stamina than when I began. Sometimes you might have to look for other little things to motivate you rather than the numbers on the scale.
ETA: I never saw any REAL weight loss until I went low carb. I used to eat a lot of carbs and fruit and I felt like I was starving the whole day. Maybe you just haven't found the right eating/exercise combo to work for you yet.
Sparkpeople - is a great website for figuring out portions, calories in/out, and you can even input recipes and see their nutritional info.
Don't get discouraged! Give yourself a good 6 weeks to see some results and don't forget to measure yourself once a month your waist, hips, thigh, arm to see if maybe you are losing inches as opposed to lbs. Sparkpeople tracks this as well.
Good for you for getting active and eating healthier!
My body gains muscle VERY quickly, so when I start working out I gain before going down. Every. Single. Time.
Staying away from the candy is never a bad thing but please don't let the scale stop you...you may find your clothes fitting better before the scale goes down.
thanks for the support. It has been abut 2 1/2 weeks now and although I feel better and my clothes fit better, I still have yet to loss anything! I gained another pound! Oh well. I know I am on the right track.
I will say I feel much more hungry. ALL THE TIME. I have been very good about eating less/then same amount of calories, but I know it will take time. Hearing positve re-enforcement helps though, thanks :)
