Make sure that you are tracking your nutrition accurately. I weigh ALL of my food and enter it into the Nutrition Tracker. It may be that you might need to eat slightly more in the lower range than the higher range. It may be that your weight has naturally gone up because you are developing muscle which requires more fluid to build them. In time the weight should start to come down.

If you find you are still having problems you may benefit from talking to your Dr. It may be possible that there is something medical going on which could be causing this, and in part, a simple blood test may help to identify that. Also, ask your Dr for a referral to a Registered Dietitian. Take some of your SP Nutrition Daily Reports with you so that she can see exactly what and how much you are eating. I know that mine helped immensely and only took a couple minutes to figure out what the problem was. After that the weight started to slowly come off - far better than quickly :-) I am now at my goal after having lost a bucket load of weight.

Are you tracking your nutrition accurately, by weighing and measuring your food? More often than not, if you aren't measuring, you are underestimating the number of calories you're eating.

Exercise helps the process, but weight loss is about the food you eat.

If you just added exercise to your routine, it's also common to see an upward shift in weight as our muscles soak up water in response to the demands you're placing on them.

The body will adjust to routine tasks. Speaking from experience, I had to change your habit before I saw changes. You may to try and increase the speed, change the duration of time or change your exercise time. Many of these factors are needed to made in loose weight. Don't quit, stay determined and things will work out.
