Default Exercise and Weight Gain

Soooooo frustrated. I weighed in today at 1.6 pounds up since last week. I followed my points allowance just as I should've. However I started exercising much more than normal. I ran 4 times this week. Could this impact weight loss? I really thought I'd lose this week and now I'm so discouraged. Grrrr.....

Water weight gain from increased muscle repair. 1 lb weight loss requires you to cut 3500 cal. If you have a calorie deficit, it is not possible to gain fat. Exercise will not really significantly enhance your weight loss based on scale weight, but over time you will gain muscle, get toned, and change your hormonal balance positively. I actually first gained 10 lbs before I started loosing. Also, there will always be times when you do not loose. You need to get away of this instant gratification feeling and start to look at weight loss as something long-term. As long as you create a significant calorie deficit, you are going to loose fat eventually. Just keep on doing what you are doing and try to ignore the scale. Take measurements. Often they are more telling (and motivating) than your scale.

I have only lost 10 lbs since starting WW but because I have regularly been exercising my body shape has been changing. So much that my husband and a couple of co-workers have noticed. While I wish the weight would drop faster it is encouraging to know that I'm starting to look more fit. Keep up the exercise and the weight will follow!
