    It is still WORTH it to start and to stick with the exercise programs EVEN if you temporarily gain weight - it balances out and you also LOSE inches while you are at it.

    Interesting because my son and I started a different exercise program on May 2nd and I've gained weight - most likely fluid because my fluid pill has been much less effective all of the sudden. Of course our muscles are sore - mine especially. Thanks for posting this article. It really explains it. Of course with more muscle you will burn more calories so it's all good. Very interesting article.

    Logically we know that if we are eating healthy and exercising enough to sweat and huff our air, that we'll be building good results into our body. I am going to continue to go for it with exercise because I've seen the results!

    I've always known this and have gotten irritated with those just starting out saying, "it's muscle gain". I'm not saying we aren't building muscle but that type of muscle weight gain is usually reserved for body builders not for the average Jane or Joe. Now strength and endurance is a different thing:)
