good things that happened yesterday:
I got a new job sort of... different job, same company
I made goal for the day

I am a little frustrated with my weight gain this week (.8 pounds). I don't understand how I can consistently lose weight for four weeks, and then during the two weeks I actually eat at the low end of my calorie range and exercise more than ever, I gain. I did take my measurements and lost 2.5 inches in my waist alone so I am excited about that but, I am not convinced that muscle weighs that much. Does it?

    I was always told that muscle "weighs more," but I believe that recently has been debunked. Remember that you can have variations in weight depending on sodium levels & other things that cause you to retain water. 0.8 of a pound is negligible, as long as you don't continue gaining each week thereafter. Congrats on the inches lost! I think that says more than your weight about how much progress you are making. Don't be so tough on yourself! You are doing great.
