    I am wondering if anyone can help, i have been to the gym 5 times this week and burnt over 4000 cals, i have eaten well and have not cheated and have still gained half a pound!! I really dont know why and im quite upset by this, does anyone know why i would have gained weight when i have tried so hard. I have not used any weights at the gym only cardio workout!!???

    I wish I knew the answer because I had the same problem - except I gained 3 1/2 pounds!!

    Was really annoyed by it - mostly by the fact that there was no good reason behind it - I had a good week, no cheating, a weekend that involved no more drinking than other weekend and up to that point I had been losing or at least maintaining every week.

    I can only assume its our bodies playing tricks on us - retaining extra fluid just before weigh in perhaps.

    Do not be put off going to the gym - exercise can only be a good thing - all this nonsense people spout about muscle weighing more than fat it just that - nonsense - until you get to Olympian or body builder level, any muscle increase is offset by the fat youve burned off - so you should still end up with a net loss.

    Are there any other things different? Is it time of the month? Are your clothes consisent?

    I dont have any more ideas, but I'm a Tuesday weigher and hoping my 3 1/2 gain last week was just a blip - will let you know how I get on!!

    Had a 4lb loss tonight - I'd usually be thrilled with that, but coupled with the previous 3 1/2 gain, its only a net loss of 1/2 over 2 weeks.

    Still, I wore my jeans tonight, same as last week, so at least I know its a true loss, and not down to clothes, will be consistent from now own so I know what the true loss is.
