3-Weeks - Finally weight loss

Sunday, November 04, 2012

Have been tracking calories in and out diligently now for 3-weeks. In the same 3-weeks, I've begun to exercise with intensity for at least 20 minutes 3-4 times per week. The first week, while I was tracking my food, I was routinely outside of my range for each day. Week 2 I had finally adjusted and have remained within my range every day. Steadily I've been working out with intensity and athleticism and only after 3-weeks have I finally lost my first 2 pounds. My body was simply not going to let go of that and it took awhile to fire up that furnace, I guess. Hopefully we can keep up this momentum.

    I've heard that muscle weighs more than fat, so I was feeling good that I didn't gain weight, because I am stronger for SURE! emoticon

Thanks for the encouragement!

That can happen when you get much more active right off the bat. Muscle retains water while it is repairing after activity and adds weight that you want to have that can offset fat weight being lost to some degree. The scale can't tell us that we gained half a pound of muscle, a pound and a half of water and lost a pound of fat - it just gives the net of one pound gained.
