over 2 years ago when I started to add exercise. (I had been maintaining a stead weight for over a year) I ended up GAINING weight the first 2 MONTHS! Then I had to look REALLY closely to my foods and actual amounts and found I needed smaller portions and the weight started to fall off.
I got real close to my goal, but the last 6 months it seems to be creaping back up on the scale. SO I was able to order a new set of workouts and started them last week. Things are going better again.
Just keep working on it. The scales will go up and down. As long as there are more downs than ups. If this continues for months, I would see the Dr.
A friend recently bought one of the fitbits and she said it has really helped her realize how much she was actually burning in a day, and had to up her caloires and eat more. Now the weight is falling off again.
