Weight Gain is Freaking me Out!

Thursday, April 07, 2011

I am now about six weeks into doing strength training twice a week and logging in my nutrition tracker, and I have to say that it's pretty discouraging to step on the scale and find myself nine pounds heavier! Drinking eight glasses of water a day is my biggest challenge, and I have to say that I've only been able to do that maybe three times in six weeks. Soooooo, I've decided to do a streak starting today on drinking eight glasses of water a day. I am not giving up on myself because of the weight gain. I just need to figure out what needs to be done about it to get the scale going in the other direction. Needless to say, it is freaking me out!

    Muscle is dense so it weighs more. I know its frustrating, but think about how much happier your bones are becoming emoticon Keep it up!!!

    9lbs of muscle? That would be worth putting on weight for!
