My first thought is that it had to do with stress and the cortisol levels. I've been eating the right amount of calories for my body and eating healthy foods. I wasn't sure if the cortisol would cause me to store fat even if I was eating right, but I guess it makes sense that it would... That sucks. At least it's treatable. lol

Are you training too much? When you train too much, your body retains more water than usual. Try a 2 day rest, and weigh yourself again.
Hey guys, so I'm faced with a dilemma. I have been exercising and eating healthy for over a year now and I've lost 30 pounds since last January. I allow myself little cheats every once in a blue moon, but I eat healthy 98% of the time. I watch my calories and make sure that I'm getting enough based on my activity level and my BMR, etc. I've been exercising, but not over-doing it. I do weight training 3 days a week, 30-40 mins of cardio 3 days a week and try to get 10-15 mins of cardio in on the days that I'm weight training. In the past 2 weeks, though, I've noticed that I'm starting to gain weight. I've gained about 4 pounds in the past 2 weeks. There's no reason for it. I've been very stressed because of starting a new job, but I haven't been stress-eating. I have no idea what's going on and I'm beginning to get discouraged. Can anyone give me suggestions as to what might be causing this?
