I really really need to yell, scream, cry, do something!! I'm so frustrated the sad part is I know what's going on, I'm just too impatient of a person. My boyfriend and I have set a tenative date for our wedding in September (:carrot: ) and I told myself that I'm not going to buy my dress until May because I know I can lose weight and look great!! I started a protein diet last week, cutting out sugars (oh Mt. Dew Red, I miss you sooooooooo much!!!). I work out to The Firm in the morning and at night we've been going to the gym and I've been doing 40 minutes cardio and lifting light weight. I know my body has to adjust to the change in diet and even the fat turning into muscle. My pants are a little bit looser, although I haven't seen a physical change. Well heres my problem, my gripe, my b*tch............I've gained 5 pounds!!! Oh so frustrating!! I know what's going on, I just don't want to be heavy anymore!!! I know, I know.....patience, patience is the key. But times like this makes me want to starve myself (I know, not healthy, I wouldn't do that). Although it did make me do the cross trainer for an extra 20 minutes last night :ebike: But on the bright side I'M GETTING MARRIED TO THE MAN I LOVE WOO HOO!!:woo:

When you exercise your muscles retain water, so I guess your gain is about that. I'd suggest keeping an eye on your calories, apart from that, you're doing great! Oh and drink plenty of water!

It always helps to vent and b*tch a little. When I've been working my butt off and the scale doesn't move I vent like crazy into my journal.Give yourself a little more time and it'll happen. I know it's hard to be patient..but with all that excersise when it starts to come off it'll probably happen quick.
Just remember that you're doing great and by May you'll be fitting into that perfect wedding dress.

I just had a totally illogical weight drop. All I did was stick with my plan. If you are expending more calories than you are eating, you will lose weight.
And body shrinking is as good as weightloss! Nice firm tightening!
Here's what my daughter is doing with her dress. She went to a local dress shoppe where the gals are wonderfully understanding. Between DS and the proprietress, they decided how much she needs to lose and have set up a fitting schedule accordingly. We know there will be alterations no matter what. It doesn't matter is she stays the same. It doesn't matter if she loses the amount they agreed on or more. It's all in the plan.
