Ok, so I've been on my diet for a little over a week now and I have ganied 2 lbs. I have kept within range of calories and done MORE than my share of excercise... (I'm pretty athletic; swimming once a day, aerobics, and walking for stress relief) I am eating right, exercising, and using sparkpeople.com like crazy and for what? t a 2 lb. gain! I know it is probably water and muscle (I am VERY sore and drink about 6 extra 8 oz cups of water a day) but it's still a bummer. I'm getting impatient.. and this is always my downfall. I need to tough it out and not give up! ... ... I hope!

    Thanks you guys for the feedback! Yes, I think I may be over-exercising. I tend to get VERY impatient and as soon as I eat something I want to work it off... no matter what it is. It's hard for me to think that not exercising a day or two would benefit me.... though I'm sure it would.. I mean it makes sense. I don't need to injure myself. AHHH if only I could be patient....

    Hang in there! If you are consistently going over your goal fitness minutes or calories burned, adjust your goals so that you will get a more accurate calorie range. Also, if you are doing strength exercises, your weight might increase or stay the same even as you get skinnier. Try taking your measurements and compare them to you last ones. Hope that helps and hang in there!

    Don't get discouraged! Sometimes are bodies are weird. Make sure that you are eating enough. If you are doing a lot of exercise, you need to make sure you have enough fuel to run the engine!

    Best of luck, and Happy Sparking!

    If you are sore all the time, you might be overexercising. Let your body heal before you continue, you will do it much better once your muscles heal. Otherwise, your muscles will not be able to get stronger and you will miss out on having natural calorie burners.
