Confusing results

Wednesday, February 27, 2013

When I've been eating healthfully and exercising, my scale seems to be stuck, or worse, creep upwards! However, when I go over my allotted calories for the day, my weight seems to trend down. Too many days in a row of too many calories, and the weight jumps back up. I'm frustrated. I'm eating at the upper end of my Sparkpeople range to keep my metabolism from slowing down. In the past, my healthy habits of eating well and exercising always resulted in 1-2 lb weight loss each week. What's happening? Why am I not seeing results for my hard work??

They say muscles weigh more than fat so maybe exercise has built up yours.!!

    Your body doesn't always react immediately to what you're doing--it can take time for behavior to show--so that going over isn't why you're losing. Consistency will get you there--lots of inconsistency will show up as inconsistency on the scale.
