Gained or not?

Tuesday, July 16, 2013

Recently I've been rambling on about wanting a fuller figure and wanting to gain 2kg to do so.

Well. I've been updating my profile, plus blogs under the impression I had gained a good 2kgs.

What I don't understand is - despite eating more, and having had no formal exercise - how can I appear to have gained 2kg when in fact I only gained 1kg?

64.6kg was my maintenance weight for a good month. Good.

Since this whole gaining thing began I've been on a rollercoaster - trying not to gain too much but definitely trying to gain.

I woke this morning to realize I'm 65.2kg, whereas last Wednesday it was 66.8kg.

My calorie range for 2 weeks has been in the high 2000's and only recently have I gone back down in order to maintain and am eating 1600-1900. I shouldn't lose in this way - I'm not even doing any cardio the way I was before - except for strength training and in that I am making sure I am getting my protein - plus with this you're supposed to gain muscle right?

Could all the extra foods be causing water weight gain and I've stopped myself from gaining more thinking I'm already done?

What gives?

    Weight is a strange, strange thing. I hope you can figure it out.
