Thanks everyone! I did do all of the exercise I set out to, in fact, I surpassed it...which might be the problem...never thought I'd say that! I am making adjustments to my workout schedule and I will be more attentive to the sodium. That one is a challenge for sure!

I would double-check and make sure your calories burned through exercise is where it's supposed to be. Did you do all the exercise you budgeted for? If not, you may want to tweak it.

Also, if you eat a lot of stuff with sodium, try to reduce your intake there. No matter how much water you drink, water retention can certainly be an issue. I try to keep my sodium at about 1,000-1,500 mg/day when I'm not being stupid (like this weekend). :)

You are tracking but where in your ranges were you? Did you track your exercise and account for all of your calories burned in your plan? Sometimes it is simply your body needs more or fewer calories, could be you need more protein. Some people have success with low carb, I have reached a point where I only find success when my sodium is in range.

If you're new to exercise then that's probably just muscle weight you've gained, because muscles weigh more than fat.
My main advice is don't stress about it. Weight goes up and down all the time even when you do exactly the same thing, that's just how our bodies work.
Try measuring your success with something other than the scale like taking measurements of your body or seeing how many jumping jacks/push ups/crunches you can do before stopping. The scale really is just a tiny part of this journey.

I could use some insight right about now...Since the end of December I have been working very hard to do things right. I have been tracking daily (with the exception of one day when the internet was down, grrrrr...oh, but I did write it all down then tracked later), eating well within my calorie range, exercising (even when I didn't want to), and making healthy food choices. My first weigh in, I lost three pounds. I was happy about this. I weighed this week and was two pounds up. I don't understand this...I did everything the way I did that first week. If anyone has any words of wisdom, I would appreciate it! emoticon
