The numbers are going up

This is really frustrating. I'm done with my period and dinner last night was an apple. The past couple of weeks I've been working out AT LEAST 4 tims a week and although I do have slipups here and there generally speaking I've been eating well. However I weighed in at 146 this morning after going to the bathroom and even with no clothes on. That's a 3 lb gain from the lst time.

I probably have put on muscle mass but still I should have really lost more fat. I don'eat strength train like crazy, it's something I do twice a week.

So now I'm going back to the drawing board to see where I can cut more corners but I really really don't want to do that. I don't know if I can be any better at the moment. I already eat healthier and exercise more than my roomates and most of my friends and classmates. My incentive to stay that way is that I'll be losing weight and it sux when I'm not seeing those results. Ok there are results but they're very slight. This weekend I put on a pair of size 10 Trina Turk dress pants and they were loose. When I bought them in August they weren't tight, but more fitted. I also bought a vest from Bebe in a size medium....I still couldn't get all the buttons to close but it was still wearable. So I probably lost like 5 pounds of fat in the last 3 months.

Ok I have been having one too many espresso truffles from starbucks, but when I get those it's in place of a meal as to balance out. Also I've been eating more carbs, but still it's in moderation! I've been eating cereal for breakfast every morning but it's the kashi brand with all that fiber in it so I thought it's a good choice. I did have some chocolate cake but literally maybe 5 bites.

I just don't know how much better I can be. I hate to think that I was meant to stay this way.

Maybe you're not eating enough? Especially an apple for dinner...that will slow down your metabolism. Just a thought.

Scales are terrible. I would use your clothes as a gage.

Take a breath. And now another one. :)

Three pounds is a big jump. To truly gain that much you would've had to have 10,000 extra calories, which I doubt is what happened.

Have you considered using something like just to get an idea of the nutritional breakdown of what you're eating? A big difference for me with changing the way I ate was in focusing on the nutritional aspect of food choices, rather than the "diet" focus. Our bodies need certain amounts of all food groups to successfully shed weight.

Just a thought. I suspect it was just an ugly scale bounce, and that you'll see the 3-pounds gone by next week. :)

hey, i know exactly what it the problem is. I may hurt your feelings but listen me out. I think all you have been losing last few weeks could well be water weight. When you start eating healthy and going to gym etc. in the sense getting back to a normal lifestyle, your body gains the waterweight back. Hint... eat like a normal person for a week or two and the weight that you find yourself to be at the end of it will be your "normal person weight". In the sense that you can compare that with any other normal person out there. You cannot really compare a "ive been excercising and dieting like crazy" weight to a normal person on the street's weight. I know im not very good at conveying my point. But hope you get the message.

the worst thing u can do is replace healthy wholesome meals by junk! if u need to have some truffles or whatever then just have it in moderation...but do not skip meals so u can have treats..and if u dont already do give yourself a free day to eat what u long as u dont over do it,it will be ok...and do not eat an apple for dinner..u will only want to bing later...
and maybe lay off the scale for a bit...have u been measuring yourself??

Chances are your metabolism is running slow. Especially If you're having coffee for lunch. To lose the extra weight you are going to have to be more strict with your diet, no more processed sugars, high fat or processed carbs. And 3 balanced meals with minimal snacking. Let's face it, If you want to be smaller old habits will have to go, along with the junk you're eating.
