Oh No, NOT Again!


Thursday, December 05, 2013

I feel like all I do is complain when I post a blog! I've been working out pretty consistently, 2-3 times a week at the gym with my trainer, and 2-3 times a week at home on the treadmill. This isn't just putting in time, it's me pushing myself to do things at the gym that my body feels for a few days afterwards. I rotate my workouts on the treadmill, going fast enough to keep my heart rate up, then the next time I go faster and even jog a bit. So, back to my dilemma. I was pretty happy with my workouts and my last weigh in, but I got on the scale yesterday and I'm up 4 pounds from 2 days ago! Needless to say, this just bursts my happy balloon! I can't figure it out at all. I did notice my sodium was up a little, but 4 pounds worth? But on a happier not, I took my body measurements this morning and I'm down 2.75 inches overall, with 2.50 of those in my hips. I'm not looking for sympathy, I just really needed to get this out of my system, again :(

    Fluid retention does it to me and I have had three and four pound swings on the scale due to fluid retention. Salt/sodium will do it to you and me and others as well. We are only suppose to consume about one teaspoon of salt per day and anything over that will cause you to retain more fluids. Just keep working at it, be aware of it and still drink plenty of water too and it will work out. Congratulations to you for your commitment to continue the weight loss battle. This will work for you!

    Is your cycle anywhere near, that sometimes has a tendency to assist in holing water and sodium and for sure Sodium is not your friend.

emoticon job on the inches lost. keep up the great work.

    It looks like you have some good advice here. I know that I can show a 4+ pound gain after a meal out - sodium is not my friend.

    Could be muscle, could be water. Weigh again and see what happens in the next few days.

Remember that the scale matters not at all. It's how you feel and how your clothes fit you.

    I think it's muscle weight. My husband and I have been walking and strength training consistently for at least a month. The scale has moved some for me, but for my husband, it goes up and down. He can't get past a full 10 pound weight loss. But he is wearing jeans that he couldn't wear a month ago. And those jeans are lose. I am trying not to worry too much about the scale. As long as those inches are coming off, we are making progress! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Pay no attention to the scale. You will notice a difference in other ways. Keep up the good work and dont give up
