    Congrats on your progress so far and on the Red Sox tickets.

Even if you didn't weigh yourself everyday, the muscle weight would still show on the weekly weigh in at some point.

It's one of those, "you have to take a short term hit for long term success" scenarios. It is really frustrating though.

Continued success to you.

    I am reading You on a Diet my Dr.OZ. In the book there is a huge emphasis on staying away from your scale. Concentrate on measurement and how good you feel! emoticon

AMYSCURTIS 1/30/2010 5:57PM, don't weigh yourself every day! I know, I know, I do the same thing and it sucks to see the scale go up when you know you did alot to make it go down. It is probably just water but it really makes you want to give up for a minute. i weigh in on tuesdays too. You can do it, you are doing all of the right things!I hope when i weigh in this week, i lost close to 13lbs total too!

  I understand...but you need the muscle and it will all work out in the end if you keep your calories in the right range.

    I agree - it is probably water. It happens to me a lot. Don't be frustrated - you are doing all the right things. The scale will eventually catch up with you.

  I don't think that the 3 pounds is related to weight work. It may be holding water. gaining muscle actually helps you burn more calories. Our weight fluctuates for all kinds of reasons. Give yourself a month of weight work two or three times a week- and then see what happens. Muscles do weigh more, but they burn way more calories. I find when I add weights, that after a few weeks I begin to lose weight more consistently.

You are very courageous to Blog! Thanks for sharing what feels like a very hard journey sometimes...
