IMO, although I am far from being a professional, weight gain from fruits is not the kind that stick to your ribs, for example. How do you feel? Do you feel fat and unhealthy or is the scale making you feel that way?
It might also be all the water in the fruits, which is not bad I think, but will show on the scale!

210. At least, no gain this time.

Ugh! Bad week, diet wise. Will try to do better this week. DH is on holidays so, theoretically, I should have plenty of time to cook.

176.6!

 

Finally a loss, and a good one!

Next week is the last one of this challenge right?

If I could only see the 175s.... Man... That'd be nice :)

Oh, well.  At least I've been getting some good walks in.  It'll probably show up on the scale right after the challenge ends.  orngtongue.gif

142. I doubt I'll be seeing a loss before the challenge ends. I'm okay with that, but sorry to my team! Getting to my goal weight may take a while longer than I originally thought. My legs have improved so much and I'm proud of the effort I've been putting in. I've made some major lifestyle changes and I'm proud of that too. I will get there.

Ugh I missed last week. I'm having trouble losing while I'm in limbo waiting for biopsy results. 231.4 today.

Hockey tonight, Friday, and Sunday, if my ankle isn't hurting. Can't walk every day like I used to do. Doing the best I can exercise-wise, could do better with diet though.

164. 

 

A little upsetting because I was down to 162 on Wednesday before leaving for a short visit to the ILs.  Guess I shouldn't be too hard on myself, the ILs eat VERY carb heavy and I usually end up gaining.  At least I lost this time.

I'm sad to have gained a bit this week, but yesterday my husband said "hey, you're really starting to look fit." And some jeans that fit snuggly last week fit perfect today. Maybe I'm losing fat/inches and gaining muscle.  I wish I had measured myself a few weeks ago!  I've been exercising a lot...1000 minutes last month and aiming for 1300 minutes this month.I'm not even counting all of the yard work I'm doing as exercise.  I just wish the scale would show that I am doing something!

post #158 of 184

So sorry. I weighed in yesterday but forgot to post it. I'm back at 134.8

MrsGale you definitely gained in muscles, which eventually leads to a weight loss! I'm there with you, when I started doing weights and busted my ass only to see that the scale didn't budge, I got disappointed. Now it's finally moving downward, but that 2 weeks or so that your muscles are replacing the fat feels like you are busting your ass for nothing. Not true! Be patient! And looking and feeling more fit is a reward in itself :) Jut learn to appreciate it!
