I'm dieting pretty good. I'm strength training three days a week (30 mins each session) with a personal trainer which always leaves me sweating. I jog and walk in about 3 minute intervals on the treadmill for 30 minutes. I do the treadmill at least three days a week but I try to do it every other day. I have to be careful because the soles of my feet get bruised if I use the treadmill every day. I do have custom made inserts for my shoes.
I've gone from maintaining 142-144 lbs to 149lbs in a month. I took my measurements and I've gained about 1-2 inches just about everywhere. My measurements are still less than they were when I first started though, when I weighed 145 lbs.
I know that I'm going to gain muscle mass and that muscle weighs more than fat. But shouldn't I be losing fat too? Shouldn't the fat switch out for new muscle? What am I doing wrong??
