I have been doing Crossfit for about three weeks inconsistently. I am doing an On Ramp program in which I am learning the basic movements. However, I am also getting a damn good workout as well out of each time. Life has been getting in the way. However, days that I'm not going to the box, I am doing Cardio. Yesterday I ran 3 miles. It's been a while since I've been able to do that. Also, I have been told since I am doing Crossfit, I should NOT weigh myself. I will be gaining muscle..blah blah blah. Well I stepped on the scale this morning and the person who told me that was right. I wish I hadn't. I'm not being discouraged by what the scale says this time. I feel good. In my eyes I look good, so I know I am NOT gaining fat. I just need to set a date in which would be a good time to weigh myself again and hope it goes down.

  It's hard not to weigh yourself - you have to trust the program. Like Health-e-clare says - take measurements & pictures. Also don't get discouraged - look at the CrossFit athletes - they aren't fat they are ripped. If you get ripped and like the way you look are those extra pounds on the scale going to matter?

    Instead of weighing yourself, I would either take starting measurements or take pictures and then compare those every month. I promise you'll see changes that way as the fat starts to melt off and muscle grows.

Congrats on Crosfit and I wish you continued success!
