Don't panic. Give your body time to adjust.

give your body some time to adjust to your workouts and eating healthy. It takes time.

Lots of things can cause your weight to fluctuate: retaining water, that time of the month, measuring in a different spot, and/or illness, among other factors.

It should go back down; and the scale is not really your friend if you know what I mean. It shows the fluctuations in your weight really well. Your weight can fluctuate several times in a day, week, etc. Did you weigh first thing in the morning after urinating? I've read that's the best time. Also, I would only weigh once a week (although I have to peek! more frequently than that).

You are right: you will gain muscle mass, but I highly doubt it happened that fast that much.

I wouldn't worry about it that much. Be patient and try not to let it worry you overmuch. It's just a small bump in the road. Don't panic, we all see fluctuations in our weight. I noticed that some of my measurements have remained the same and increased, in some cases, but it then goes down.

I just keep telling myself that I'm on this journey for life, and that does help me. God's blessings! emoticon

Hi MOMMY2525,

It takes much longer than a week to see changes from your workouts. My suspensions are that your muscles are hanging onto a little water due to your body's increased glycogen stores which help fuel your workouts and aid in the cooling off process when working out.

Give it a solid 6-8 weeks for the changes to start showing up, but trust that your body is changing now, even if you can't see them.

Coach Nancy
