I just can't get the darn scale to budge! I have been working on doing squats, push ups and crunches, actually doubling the amount of each that I can do while only doing each group every 3 days. I'm super proud of myself.
I have started walking but only short distances, nothing long, so I know that my cardio can use some help.
I've been keeping my calories around 2k and under though I will be the first to admit that the food choices are not too great.
I've given up soda, juice and milk.
I've given up fast food.
I've gained weight!
What? Yep, I've gained weight and not just a pound or two but a whole whopping nearly 10lbs in about 2 weeks. How can this be? I mean no swelling to suggest that I'm retaining water and even with cutting out salt I'm still not losing.
My only thought is that I've gained muscle and it is causing the scale to shift up. I actually measured myself and yet the numbers are not shrinking. My clothes are not getting any looser.
I'm at a loss.
