My cardio exercise is great. My strength is okay (I get it in most times I'm supposed to). My eating is waaaaaaaaay off what it is supposed to be. I know what I need to do, it's just a matter of doing it.

If you have been exercising more, it may be water retention until your muscles get used to the extra activity. That often happens with me whenever I start my program up again, or suddenly raise my exercise levels to higher than before.

Keep going and the scale will go in the right direction soon.

Well I guess this week I gained exactly a pound :( Not that I am ok with that, but I feel ok about it. The scale says I dropped 2 percent of body fat and I have been exerciing more than I ever have and I think I may be starting to like it. Hopefully this next week I will see a loss again.

That's the trick, I think, to not feel down on the weeks when we don't lose as much.

I lost 4.5 pounds this week! I'm so happy cause by the end of the week, I was getting kinda down and wondering if I could really do this. Losing the weight has motivated me more than I could have guessed and I KNOW that I can do it!

I was going great guns and then the past couple of days I fell of the wagon again. I need to get back on, but I think I am chasing it right now, lol!

Perhaps we can give each other a boost back on the back of that darn wagon, eh?

Well done on reaching your goal (exceeding)! How long have you been maintaining?

I got within about 10 pounds of final goal and then stopped. I think I was frightened of not maintaining and so 'decided' to gain weight again so as not to have to deal with it.

Please be my cheerleader!

I am at about 159/160 right now. I am more than 10 pounds overweight. Not back to obese, or anything, but I am running out of clothes as I have sent all my 'fat' clothes packing. I have beautiful new clothes, never or barely worn that are now too tight. Help!

It might be the exercise more part - your muscles holding on to water until they get used to being more active. I'm sure hoping that's what mine is. My official weigh in on my challenge Teams is tomorrow!
Yikes! My Team loses major points when we gain as a group!

So I weighed in today even though my weigh in day is not till Tuesday. I am up a little over a pound, but don't get it cause I have been eating good and trying to exercise more. It did say my body fat is down 2%, so that is a good thing, but why is the weight going up? I should just wait till Tues to check, but sometimes just wanna see how things are going.

Some people do find it helpful to weight less often than once a week. There's been many a blog with the title, "I'm throwing out my scale!" or, "I'm hiding my scale". lol!

I do weigh myself most days but only take the 'official' weigh in once a week. The others I try and ignore.

I'm thinking of packing away my scale since I found myself weighing in again today even though I know there hasn't been enough time for any change in my weight.

It's hard to stick to the once a week weigh in that I planned when I have a bad weigh-in. I don't want to be weighing in everyday. I know it's not the healthiest thing for me.

So that's not it then. Maybe your body is just not up to peak efficiency as you are feeling poorly.

Munchies - yeah, I guess putting on my favourite show tunes and belting them out might curb them. Problem is I can still sing with my mouth full! Not well, mind you, but still...

I've been suffering with the flu for the past couple days so I haven't been doing much exercise.

How is your battle with the munchies going? If you like singing, it might be a good way to avoid it.

And when we don't get enough, our bodies hold on to any water it can. That might be a factor.

Plus, have you been working out harder and longer than usual? If so, your muscles hold on to water for a bit until they are used to the new level of exercise and then they release the extra.

I'm at 151.

I know it's probably water weight... I've been eating good but not getting in enough water.

Hi all,
Down 1.2 this morning, thought it would be more just because I had a really good week, but that is okay. I am moving in the right direction! Hope everyone has a great week.

Very good choices, Cherly.
sorry you're not happy with your weigh in, JAANDREWS! Let's kick it up a notch together. I wasn't happy with my weigh in either.
