It can be confusing, that's for sure! I've been trying to lose weight for the past year. My health care people told me to try Doug Kaufmann's anti-fungus diet. Didn't work. I exercised some with it but not a lot. Then the doc PROMISED I'd lose weight with the low-glycemic index diet. Tried that ... didn't work. Again, I didn't exercise a lot. The thing for me is I will lose weight in the first three weeks and then the weight comes right back on. I changed doctors (closer to home) and this new gal told me to exercise an hour a day (work up to it) at least 5 days a week plus do WW. I decided to rejoin SP instead ... it's free!
I've been working out an hour a day for the past month plus watching what goes in my mouth. I've done the same thing this time - I gained 2 pounds last weigh in, BUT I'm staying with this one because even though I gained back 2 pounds (for no reason), I did lose inches. One of the SP articles say weight loss won't be even. So, I'd say keep it up. Keep exercising and watching those calories and eventually, you will see the weight/inches come off. You know it is healthy to do it.
I exercise with Leslie Sansone ... I'm walking 5 miles a day with her now. I'm stronger. I can see some difference in my body. I won't quit ... hope you won't either!
