I seem to be gaining weight instead of losing it. Yes, I know yesterday I consumed the upper limit of my daily calories and fat content...however I also exercised a lot more and over the week I've eaten well I think.
Now I can only really put my weight increase onto the fact that I am doing more strength exercise and hopefully it's muscle mass. I hope to see my weight decrease and/or my clothes feeling looser. I must also admit to struggling to completely follow any diet...I think I need to sit down and begin properly planning my daily meals.
Well I reckon if I keep strong my new lifestyle changes shall give me the rewards (I hope).
Good luck everyone and keep strong :D

    Using your muscles more leads to short term water retention as they heal. Also the body doesn't work over such short periods as yesterday and last week, it's not a machine, and the calories in, calories out is a very crude way of estimated weight loss. It works over a time scale of weeks, you will have to be tolerant and patient.

    It sounds like you are doing everything right. Sometimes we have hormonal changes, fluid retention, etc, and this can be frustrating. Also if you have been exercising and building muscle, this can weigh more, but it also burns calories at a greater rate. So I would hang in there and not let this small blip upset me too much. They say consistency is the key and I am counting on it myself! emoticon
