Hard work equals... weight gain... DO WHAT!!

Tuesday, July 05, 2011

I know I know... you're gaining muscle! I've lost NO inches and gained 3 lbs... In 14 days I have burned AT LEAST 200 calories a day. I've been running, swimming, bike riding... P90X, Zumba... whatever I've done it. I'm supposed to be losing inches though... right?

I have to admit I dont exactly stay within 1200 calories a day but I havent been over the 1500 calories!!! Shouldn't I be seeing some kind of results? I like exercising so I'm not going to stop but WHY AM I GAINING? WHY AM I NOT LOSING INCHES? UGHHH!!

    Also, to have a weekly loss of one pound 500 calories need to be burned every day. If you are meeting this requirement, try watching your deficit on your reports page to make sure you are getting one. Another option may be to reset your goals, that may change what your intake is as well to adjust for calories your are burning. Sometimes eating too little can cause a gain as well.

    Also, where are you in your cycle? Hormones play a role in when and where we lose.
