Help! what's going on?

#1
I weighed myself this morning and I have put on 3 lbs! How did that happen? I am watching what I eat and have started going to the gym 3 mornings a week. Could it be that I am putting on muscle weight? Will my weight start going down soon? How frustrating. Maybe I should start measuring to see if I am losing inches.

Hi

You'd have to work out a helluva lot to gain muscle weight. But what normally happens if you are not used to exercising is you retain water - something to do with protecting the muscles (but don't quote me on that!)

Keep it up and it'll drop in a day or two. And yes - definatly start measuring!

Good luck!

Oh my goodness –*I hope you are right. Thank you for replying and easing my panicking. It may be water retention. I certainly feel like my legs have swollen a bit (does that sound stupid?!). I will try to drink loads of water and that should help.

Hi

I don't think this heat helps - my rings feel tight, always a sign for me that I'm holding water :)

Yep - drink lots :)
