My name is Hilary and I’ve gained 2 pounds

K, I’m working out WAY harder then I have in the past, I have been so sore a couple of days I haven’t worked-out, but I think that’s probably for the best.
I’m not snacking.
I’m trying to keep portions within limits.
I’ve gained 2 pounds.
Some thoughts I’ve had:
1. I’m not eating enough? I need to make some little baggies of veggies that I can pull out of the fridge and have a little snack on when necessary. Things like cucumbers, broccoli and carrots that I can have cut-up and ready at my disposal.
2. It’s that time of the month? Mine is so random who knows….
3. I should stop doing both and just become gluttonous.
4. Maybe I should start calorie counting again. I’m fairly sure of the calories that I’m consuming after I did it for the 4 months before… but maybe just do it a week and get a better idea of things. {sigh} It’s REALLY painful though, really REALLY painful.

Anyone else have any ideas? I have heard that when you start a new workout you’re gonna gain a few pounds at the beginning, and I’m fine but if I hit the old 200 again I’m gonna blow my lid. Really, I will.

Some info for my peeps

    My weight fluctuates quite a bit.
    Try drinking lots of water…I think I drink a lot and then am surprised when I start actually keeping track.
    You’re right, you might not be eating enough. but make sure you’re getting a good variety. Limit starches and go for more protein, fruits and veggies.
    You’re probably gaining muscle weight with your firm.
    Not a bad idea to count your calories again either, just to get an idea.
    I still think you should get yourself tested for PCOS. Seriously. By an endocrinologist. I swear you have a lot of the symptoms.

    Dude, you need to come with me to boot camp! It would be so fun! On boot camp we use to count our calories and track what we’ve burned with exercise. I really liked that site a lot. I also lost quite a bit after we did our water flush on week 3. Try it out. If you want me to send you the stuff that we do at boot camp, I can. And I’ve also realized that it’s more about the lean muscle mass than weight. I also agree with Lara, you need to get some tests done. You sound like you’re working REALLY hard. You deserve some great results!

    I agree with your girls…you’re doing everything right so maybe there’s some other reason the weight won’t budge. I did the FIRM and loved it, but if you are sore that means you ARE building muscle and of course that will weigh more. Hang in there!
