All over the place....

Friday, February 08, 2013

My weight has been all over the place. Bouncing between 137.8 and 140.6 almost daily. It's been a little crazy. Last time, it was so easy - a lot of work with a lot of results. I don't know what is going on this time around. I sat down adn really started thinking about it and put together what I feel is a good work out plan. I think I need to work more on my nutrition and get really serious about it. I have been holding it between 1200 and 1500 calories every day but the quality of the food has not been there. I need to lay of the snacking in between meals unless it's fruits or veggies. Just because I am working out more does not mean I get to eat like crap!

    You seem to have an exercise and diet plan in place. Just stick to it. And it could be the sodium, but, really, there is only a 3-pound variation which could be due to all kinds of reasons. Thanks for sharing...and many of us share your problem! :-)

    I think susan is probably right it sounds like water retention. Up you water consumption and watch your sodium. If you are working out more you will be needing more water than what you are used to.

    Other than that check your portion measurements, I always find "guesstimating" leads me to a plateau.

    Keep up all the good work you are doing though. I once plateaued for 3 weeks then on the forth week lost 4 kg, it is quite common especially if you strength train. What keep me motivated was the tapemeasure not the scale. emoticon

    Maybe look at the sodium content of your snacks? If you are gaining and losing quickly in that range, it's probably water retention.
