today I am really frustrated. I am really trying hard not to lose focus on my goals today. I weighed in yesterday and somehow I gained 2 pounds last week. I don't understand it I didn't overeat all week and I exercised everyday but Thursday. I talked to my trainer and she said that I might have gained weight either because I didn't eat enough calories or I am gaining muscle weight. she encouraged me to continue eating within my calorie ranges and keep working out and she told me that I should show a loss soon. I am getting bored with curves lately and think I need to step up my routine a little in order to lose weight. also my big issue with curves is that the hours are not that convenient for me all the time. anyways, my insurance pays for several clubs here in town and so I decided to join another club in addition to curves which is paid for by my insurance as well. so now I am a proud member of fit for life as well a curves. the good thing about fit for life is that it is a 24 hour access club so I can work out all hours which I think will be a better option for me to get my workouts in. I am not really sure what I am going to have to do in order to pull off a weight loss this month. I am going to focus on making healthy food choices and getting my workouts in every week. so my goals for this next week are:
1. Drink 10 glasses of water everyday
2. eat 3 healthy meals ( 1 carb, 1 meat, 1 veggie or fruit, 1, milk, 1 fat) and 2 snacks every day
3. Workout @ Curves @ least 3 days this week
4. Workout @ fit for life @ least 2 days this week
5. enter my food in the food tracker 6/7 days this week

    I agree with your trainer. Just keep doing the right things, you can shake it up a bit with different diet schedule and such but sometimes we have water or building muscle and the scale disappoints. It really is persistence that wins afterall. I can't lose as fast as others but eventually I lose. And you gave me a great idea to call my insurance company and ask if they pay for any health clubs - doubt it but worth a try. Remember it is the long term that matters and not one week. emoticon

    some days those scales are definitely not our friend !! happens to me but then the next day it is down .... reading some of the Spark info says some food is heavier than others -- no matter that it is health friendly -- but that can surely show up on the scale ... so many possibilities .... you will do fine ....
