It often takes time for the changes to show on the scales - especially when you are really working out HARD. I went over 2 months before I showed my first scale drop - and then it dropped over 10 pounds almost instantly - one day it was there, the next I was down 4, then 2 and the 3, and then 2 or 3. That happen both the next two months after no change for 2-3 months.

With love and caring from Nancy ... wishing all of you a wonderful, blessed, and precious day.

This is normal. It can take as much as 6-8 weeks for your healthy lifestyle changes to translate to the scale, especially when starting exercise programs:

I am on week 4 of an intense interval workout program called JNL fusion. Its 30-40 min long and it kicks my butt and I love it! Every workout is mixed with cardio and weight lifting. Here's my problem. I have gained 9 lbs since I started the program. I have reduced my calories by quite a bit, i have cut down on wine. now i prob have 3 glasses a week. My husband and I just recently stopped going out to eat for Lent! I don't know what's going on! I am drinking enough water. I have lost about 1 inch in my waist and 0.5 inches in each thigh but I would expect a little more after working out 5-6 days a week for 4 weeks. what could be going wrong? is there anything wrong? is this normal?
