Also, your weight isn't accurate immediately post-workout :) I think all of us trying to lose weight can definitely understand your feelings- three weeks ago I had lost a pound, then two weeks ago I started a new, more intense strength routine... and my weight was up 3 lb the first week and 2 lb this week! Wrong direction, right? It helps me to tell myself that working out is making me healthier regardless, and if I've tracked my food I know that I didn't eat enough to gain that weight and that it'll adjust back down eventually. Keep at it, keep eating healthy and working out and making healthy choices, and the weight will come off! And don't get on the scale too often! Aim for once a month (which I can't stick to...I end up weighing myself at least once a week- something I'm still working on!).
You can do this. Yes it is frustrating that we have made unhealthy choices and gotten ourselves into a situation where we have to work our butts off to lose weight- but you know, we just may end up healthier in the long haul by learning to make healthy choices and be ACTIVE!
