Hey all! So... this post my be kind of dumb but I don't know very much about this stuff. :P
I'm getting super close to my first mini goal. I'm at 251, my goal right now is 249!
Back in October I was really good about staying on plan for about two weeks. I dropped 9 pounds in that time. Then I fell off the wagon... and from mid October to mid November I gained about 4-5 pounds.
Now in the last week I have dropped 6 pounds.
I know it's not possible to actually lose 6 pounds of fat in one week. So all of this is probably water weight right?
Should I be worried that it's like... muscle loss? I do cardio 3-4 times a week. I did try doing some strength training in October but couldn't because of an injury. My shoulder/arm has been in bad shape for a few months. (I assume due to the position I sleep in combined with picking up and carrying toddlers as part of my job.) Now I also get strange arm spasms in my arm at random. When I did strength training it made the pain worse so I stopped. I made an appointment with my doctor but the earliest I could be seen isn't until December 5th.
Is it possible that:
A. The pain started in June. At that point I had lost 55 pounds with very little cardio and no strength training. Could the pain be caused by my muscles like wasting away or something?!
B. Is not working out now while injured going to cause me to lose muscle?
