BLC 19 Weigh In Disappointment

Friday, June 01, 2012

I weighed in Wednesday and discovered I weigh the most I ever have in my life. I've eaten junk food the last couple of weeks out of frustration and anger. It's time for me to figure out what's going on.

1. I am not staying in my calorie range
2. I am working out on average at least 3 days a week

Ughhhhhhhh...I'm soooooooooooooooooo frustrated right now! I never thought I would be that person who was overweight. emoticon

    I'm not sure I understood right, but it sounded like you are pointing to your workouts for your weight gain?? Working out DOES NOT make you gain weight. There are wives tales out there that say that it does, but they're not based in reality. It is true that if you work out and don't drink enough water, you may retain water and bloat, but in the long run you will lose fat. You can drink more water to prevent this. Also, it is true that muscle weighs more than the SAME VOLUME of fat. Think of it in reverse. How big is 5 pounds of muscle vs. 5 pounds of fat? However, exercise doesn't make you gain muscle without also causing you to lose fat. The added muscle will actually burn more calories when you're just resting.

    Watch how much you are eating, and most of all -- find other ways to help your stress levels. Frustration from weight gain is probably on top of stress from work, life, etc.
