I have been following a low carb diet since February and have since lost 42 pounds. I keep hitting stalls, sometimes for weeks at a time so I thought that adding exercise to my routine would move things along faster and help get me in better shape.
I just started exercising about 1.5 weeks ago. I have been doing 10 laps in the pool, along with water aerobics about 3-4 times a week, plus I have been doing about 22 minutes on the treadmill as well.
I have seen a drop in my weight this month of about 6 pounds but when I measured my self this morning I was so disappointed because I haven't lost any inches? What the heck? It doesn't make any sence? How do you lose weight and not shrink even a little?
I am sore from head to toe, so I thought that maybe my muscles are just swollen up or something? I just don't know... Right now I just feel like crying and giving up.
Maybe I am also retaining water? I did go to the movies last night and I had a diet coke and a bag of salty pumpkin seeds (only 4 net carbs)
Please let me know if anyone has any ideas or subjections... Thank you!!!
