Well I am not sure but doesn't it take 1-2 weeks to see results from something new? I also know that when I increase my walking even double, I don't see the results right away. You may be gaining some muscle. I always take pics every few weeks. That really helped me when I started walking alot again in May and June, I had gained 2.5 pounds and was disheartened til I looked at the pics from a few weeks before and the newer pics and realized how sleek I looked. I had been losing fat, not pounds and I could really see it in my face and tummy!!! The weight started coming off the next month.
This is what I had posted in my challenge thread:
I had originally gotten down to 250
the few months before in december but wound up pg and trying to prevent a misc. cause of the iud moving around, so I quit my walking for a few months , I know I lost alot of muscle and only gained 2 pounds, so I was 252.
But I was flabby. You know the drill.
April 24 :
I decided to start walking again and did 220 minutes that month. I was 247 on the scale 2 days after I misc.
Walked 760 minutes this month
I was 244(SO supposedly down 3 pounds)
Walked 1060 minutes this month
I was 242.5
(Was down 1.5 pounds
Walked 1730 minutes this month
I was 247
(I was up 4.5 pounds!
I was really getting frustrated and really felt like giving up but reminded myself that this is not about weight but about being healthy and that if I never lost another pound I would get my butt out of bed and go for a walk every single day to protect my heart! Cause I was trying hard and here I was gaining, but I looked at pics from June and pics in July and realized I was slimming down even if it wasn't on the scale and that I was rebuilding the muscle that I had lost due to inactivity for so many months. SO this is the month when I really kicked it up with the walking.)
Walked 1185 minutes this month(It was really hot on Ca that month so it was torture just going!)
I was 238.5
(so I lost 8.5 pounds in July!

Walked 2080 minutes this month

(The previous month was when I forced myself to buckle down and recommit to no pizza and a ton more walking and watch my portions and try to count cals. So I lost 7.5 pounds!
November 1 :

The previous month was when I discovered 3fc and started the halloween challenge and found the womens health calculator which really helped me to know how many cals I should be eating! It has made such a difference!!)
Keep up what you are doing and if nothing else it will protect your heart. Make sure you are getting enough calories too.
