Ok, it doesn't make much sense, but I've gained 5 lbs. I've been working out, doing cardio (4x) and weights (3x) a week. Watching what I eat like a hawk. Ticks me off. Part of me feels like a failure and wants to cut everything out. Live on protein shakes and all bran. I had one minor slip meal, but that can't be 5lbs. That would have been 15,000 calories, and I can tell you that I didn't consume that, not even close. Maybe 600 calories, and I didn't eat much else the rest of the day.

So back to page one. Doing what I can. Working out 45 minutes on the eliptical today and doing weights. Cutting out some other foods that might be hurting me. Can't figure that lightly sea salted almonds could be hurting me, but they're gone. SO ANGRY RIGHT NOW!!!

    Sorry to hear about your set back. You may be doing this already but be sure you are drinking tons of water. When you workout you retain water...a woman can retain up to 10 pounds of water weight!

    The more you sweat, the more water you must drink. Heavily active people usually need a lot more than the suggested 8 glasses.

    I hope you are on track soon. Looks like you are using your anger as motivation..that's good!
