    First of all--the corny sound effects and the captions made me lol! :)

    Secondly, I think you're right: if you're not eating enough calories for your activity level, your body will hold onto all the fat it can in reserve. What does SparkPeople say should be your calorie level? I weigh a bit more than you--10 or 12 pounds, iirc--and mine is 1900-2100 calories (roughly), with a LOT less activity than you; I do 20 minutes, 5-6 days a week!

    *hugs* to you, and keep your chin up. If nothing else, you're getting healthier, and if the weight doesn't come off now, it will eventually. (Part of your weight gain could be muscle, too, don't forget!)

    Your sound effects were cute!!

    Have you considered that maybe the 1.6 pound was muscle? I know it is disappointing to see a gain no matter what the origin is!! lol but as long as you know you only ate the one high calorie meal then you should be ok.

    I know it feels disappointing to see the scale go up, but from the sounds of things you're doing extremely well. It could well be true that you're not eating enough to fuel your metabolism as you said... but you might also simply be building muscle as you've been so diligent on your workouts and you've said that this has happened a few weeks in a row. So I guess rather than what the scale is telling you... how are you feeling? How are your clothes fitting? What does the measuring tape say? What's your body telling you?

    Don't let the scale get you down. You're doing great! Your perseverance and level-headed approach are so inspiring. Keep it up!!!
